It's been more than three decades since we first resolved to explore the planet actively—and to share that passion with our guests. And during the past 34 incredible years, we've kept our promise of redefining what a family vacation can be and bringing you a better way to discover and connect with the world.
Holland and Belgium family biking photo
Get out for family bike rides and hikes more often... in Holland and Belgium. Enjoy windmills, canals, flower fields, quaint cottages and "oreo cookie" cows as you journey just like the Dutch and Belgians: on two wheels!
Tuscany family biking photo
Live in the moment with your kids... in Tuscany. Pedal through a landscape that seems to have jumped out of a Renaissance painting, investigate medieval San Gimignano, enjoy a truffle hunt and tasting, and savor every moment of this family adventure.
Spain family biking photo
Be curious about the world together... head to the Pryenees and Costa Brava. Far-out castles, medieval villages, misty mountains and heavenly Costa Brava beaches are yours to discover.
Brittany and Normandy family photo
Bring history to life for your kids... in Brittany and Normandy. Bike along the dramatic shoreline, frolic on windswept sand, investigate compelling sites. Step onto historic beaches and back into history.
Loire Valley biking photo
Laugh and play more as a family... in the Loire Valley. Fairytale castles, a giant water pistol at Da Vinci's house, tasty French pastries and superb Vouvray wines. We promise it's a No Sourpuss Zone here in the Loire!
Bryce, Zion and Grand Canyon photo
Keep your family healthy and fit... in Bryce, Zion and Grand Canyon. Getting lots of fresh air and exercise is never a chore when you're biking, hiking and exploring amid the grandeur of these epic national parks.
Yellwstone and grand tetons photo
Unplug and get back to basics with the kids... in Yellowstone and the Tetons. Elk as common as tourists. Thundering waterfalls and geysers exploding like clockwork. Get close to nature, leaving the technology tornado behind.
