Best Family Vacation Tours

One of the things we hear most often from parents on our trips is that they love traveling with us because it’s one of the only times in their busy lives when all they have to do is show up and have fun

You meet us on day one, and we take care of the rest. A truly carefree vacation.

And, for Trip Leaders, taking all of that stress and planning out of the hands of a parent who is used to managing everything is one of the most rewarding things to do. 

Let us take over the reins on your next family trip! It’s a true joy for us, and we know it’ll be a joy for you as well. Explore all of our family vacation tours!

With so many dates and destinations to choose from, we wanted to give you a brief rundown on this hand-selected batch of our favorite trips around the world! 

Alaska, United States

Alaska - the last frontier. Imagine kayaking next to volcanoes and glaciers; seeing eagles, bears, moose and salmon; hiking next to an ice field; and biking with views of mountains that fill the sky. That’s what our Alaska's Kenai Multi-Adventure Tour is all about. 

Experience nature in one of its purest forms and take home memories that last a lifetime!

Patagonia, Argentina

Patagonia is home to some of the most impressive natural beauty in the world. Explore the Seven Lakes region by biking, hiking, kayaking and horseback riding through it on our Argentina’s Patagonia Lake District Family Multi-Adventure Tour. Learn to Tango, try empanadas and asado and (for grown-ups) sip Malbec and maté. 

This is just as much a cultural trip as it is a geological adventure – and it’s epic.

Basque Country, Spain & France

On our Basque Country Family Multi-Adventure Tour, explore a culture so unique that its language shares no roots with any other European language. Walk in the path of pilgrims on a portion of the Camino de Santiago. Cycle along vibrant coastlines. Eat pintxos and cod and try surfing at some of Europe’s most famous surf destinations. 

Northern Thailand

Sawasdee! Or “hello,” and welcome to Thailand! Our Thailand Family Biking Tour is an unforgettable adventure that your family is sure to be talking about for years to come. Bike from temple to temple, past rice paddies and jungles, immersing yourself in the otherworldly beauty that is Thailand. Wind down at night by tasting local specialties like homemade curry, spicy thai basil pork, and, when in Chiang Mai, a famous local noodle dish called khao soi

Hawai’i, United States

We’d be remiss to not mention Hawai’i’s Big Island Family-Multi Adventure Tour here as well. This trip is fun for the whole family, and it’s one of our leaders’ favorite trips.

Bike through Volcano’s National Park. See steam vents and lava tubes and hike through volcanic craters. Explore cultural heritage sites of the Hawaiian people and learn about their rich culture that lives on today. Kayak and snorkel over stunning coral reefs, soak up the sun at a luxury resort and watch the sun set from a beachfront cabana. Doesn’t get much more Hawaii than that!
