Providing the ultimate in family adventures and activities from the Andes of Peru to South Africa, and from Costa Rica to Thailand, G Adventures offers families the holiday of a lifetime, with the chance to meet local people, try new foods and try your hand at a range of fantastic activities with the kids.
Below you will find the first of our hand-picked recommendations for family holidays with G Adventures. They have many more fantastic family adventures.
There’s a whole world out there waiting to be explored and just because you’ve got kids shouldn’t mean you can’t get out there and discover it. G Adventures take pride in socially aware and ethical holidays, travelling that little bit further off the beaten track, to open your eyes to a whole range of new cultures and exciting adventures.
Don’t expect the ordinary pampered family holiday with crèches and kids’ clubs; this is about taking your children away from their usual environment and opening up their eyes to different countries and meeting and spending time with the people that live in them. Your children will thrive spending time doing and seeing things they’ve never come across before and while the school books are gleefully left at home, your children will be experiencing hands on education in a fun and informative way.
History will become real as they whizz down the Nile and gaze at Egypt’s ancient wonders, adrenaline junkies will be happy to forfeit a roller coaster for a ride on the back of a camel and kids will happily clamber through temples galore ticking that RE box. Costa Rica will give them a lesson in ecology and biology as they trek through National Parks and experience the diverse flora and fauna or perhaps they want to hike, bike and kayak their way through the Americas. Take them for a music lesson in Cuba where they’ll learn to make their own musical instruments from locals and salsa in Havana or head for China where they can get up close and personal to pandas.
If all this sounds bewildering, rest assured; G Adventures take care of you every step of the way and while everyone wants to don their intrepid explorer’s hat nobody wants to throw caution to the wind with kids in tow. Local guides with their expertise, age-appropriate activities and hotels with facilities for people on the go with kids, ensures everyone has the time of their lives in a safe environment.
