Active Luxury Family Adventures

Active families can experience epic adventures in any destination you choose, and as each trip is handcrafted to your exact requirements, your itinerary can be as active and as adventurous as you like.

Below are purely suggested itineraries to inspire you, from hiking in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco, whitewater rafting in Zambia, glacier hiking in Argentina, to heli-biking in New Zealand.

Naturally each trip includes a meaningful, hands-on service component where you can bond as a family and inspire your kids to be future world changers.

Best Trips with Young Kids

If your kids are aged 5-10, we recommend Costa Rica and Thailand, where there are fantastic kids clubs, and you can all get involved in helping at a wildlife conservation project, and learn an enormous amount about the animals, such as elephants and monkeys.

Best Trips with Tweens

For kids aged 10-12, we still recommend Costa Rica and Thailand, plus India and Sri Lanka for wildlife conservation, as well as building eco-friendly stoves in Belize, Peru and India. These stoves can be completed in just a few days, and are fantastic for family bonding.

Best Trips with Teens

Animal loving teens can still help on a wildlife conservation project, perhaps turtle conservation in Costa Rica, Greece, and Turkey. Families with teens can also get immersed in the local culture and make a lasting difference on a building project, such as houses in Guatemala, Zambia and Cambodia.
