Our favourite experiences and adventures that families of every age can enjoy together. Tick off the list as you show them the world.
Take advantage of long-haul travel whilst you don’t have to pay for a full-priced ticket for infants and head to South Africa for some winter sun. Affordable and trusted local nannies will allow you some time off to explore.
Mauritius is one of our top choices for families and toddlers – and Lux Belle Mar has it all with top childcare and an award-winning kids club. Island escapes aren’t just for the adults!
Many of Kenya’s family-run lodges are well equipped to introduce young children from the age of six to the bush, from nature walks with Masai guides to all sorts of safari activities.
Head to Finnish Lapland for the ultimate five-year-old’s fantasy, cooking gingerbread with elves and heading out on a reindeer sleigh to meet Santa himself.
Museums aren’t always the best match for children, so instead join a specialist guide in Venice for a private family scavenger hunt as an alternative way of exploring the sights – perfect for four years and up.
From eight (or as soon as they’re tall enough to see over the top!) children can take to the skies in a hot air balloon, whether it’s gliding over the herds of the Serengeti or soaring at sunrise in Bagan.
Children as young as ten can begin to learn to dive and take the Junior Open Water qualification, converting automatically to a full PADI with the freedom to dive on their own from fifteen.
Dressed in traditional Japanese attire, including armour and a Samurai helmet, kids from nine can learn to draw swords and perform poses like the real Samurai.
From twelve, in Sri Lanka’s vibrant countryside, learn to cook in a local mud-hut kitchen, after an all-important visit to the markets for ingredients.
Harry Potter fanatics (from the kids to the adults!) will delight in exploring the magical filming locations, retracing the footsteps of both JK Rowling and the characters themselves with an expert guide.
At fourteen, why not explore the volcanic landscapes of East Java. Hike majestic Mount Bromo and marvel at the blue fire inside the Mount Ijen crater.
Get adventures and join an expert guide on a walking safari and fly camping from sixteen years old, discovering the flora and fauna of the bush up close.
From fifteen, you’re old enough to head to Uganda or Rwanda and trek through the jungle for magnificent gorilla encounters.
Now’s the chance to learn all about the art that goes into a good bottle of wine. Fortunately, it seems vines like to grow in some of the most beautiful corners of the world, from Champagne in France to Babylonstoren in South Africa.
Older teenagers can travel up to Ladakh, Northern India, in search of the elusive snow leopard, and for an insightful journey into Buddhist history.
