How to Keep the Peace with Teens on a Family Holiday

Teenagers on an adventure holidayTeenagers on an adventure holiday

Teenagers are reputedly the hardest age range to satisfy when it comes to almost everything, and that includes travelling. The Family Adventure Company shared with us their ideas on how to keep teens entertained on a family holiday and where to go next.

Here at The Family Adventure Company, we work on the understanding that teens love to travel with their peers and to experience a wide variety of activities and adventures. Hence our six dedicated teen trips in countries including Peru, Egypt and Burma.

While Burma may not be the first destination that springs to mind with kids, this relatively untouched and undiscovered country is ideal for a perfect teen family holiday, with plenty of activities that will help keep the peace with adventurous teens. Not only are the Burmese known to be one of the friendliest nations – they’re often eager to pull up a pew and share a tale or two of their intriguing culture and local traditions. At Inle Lake you can learn about some culture before boarding a traditional narrow flatboat to watch local fishermen perform their incredible leg-rowing technique. Otherwise, divide the temple-touring with a little exploration of Yangon’s bustling streets in the coolest form of transport we know – a tuk tuk. 

If your family are more into very active holidays, Turkey provides the perfect playground for all things teen-friendly – sailing the Mediterranean Sea in a traditional gulet, kayaking out to Kekova Island in search of the ruins of an ancient sunken city, 4WD excursions, snorkelling, coasteering and mountain-biking.

Often overlooked as a family-friendly destination, South Africa combines the excitement of seeing a lion up close and personal for the first time, walking in the Drakensburg Mountains, and snorkelling over incredible coral reefs and kayaking in the mangroves at Kosi Bay. Possibly the most diverse of our family destinations, South Africa keeps teens on their toes with a range of optional activities to keep the family as busy or, in some cases, as relaxed as possible.
