It's a wonderful world and there's no better way to experience its magic than by taking your family on an family adventure holiday. Travelling with children is incredibly rewarding as they see, hear and are in awe of the small things that us adults can sometimes take for granted. With 30 years history of running adventure travel holidays, coupled with our experience of travelling with our families, we know exactly what it takes to make a family adventure. Each of our family adventures has been designed to ensure that both parents and children get the most out of their holiday.
The majority of our family holidays are priced to include all meals and activities,
so there are no hidden extras - what you see is what you get!
We have adventures that focus on the world's breathtaking landscapes, from the national parks of the American west to the high Himalayan valleys of India and Nepal. You can visit Machu Picchu on a Family Adventure holiday in Peru, or hike in the high valleys below Mount Everest on a Nepal Family Adventure. We have action-packed itineraries to keep teenagers entertained and more laid-back holidays for all the family. Wildlife can also be an important element of your holiday with KE, whether that's dolphins and turtles on an exotic Arabian Family Adventure in Oman, spotting lemurs in Madagascar, pandas in China or lions on a Tanzania Family Wildlife Spectacular. On any KE family adventure, you should also get a feeling for the culture of the country you're visiting and we try to include those little elements that make your experience more ‘real', such as pizza-making in Italy, icefishing in Sweden or creating your own ‘batik' in Sri Lanka .
Whether you are a regular KE client looking to share your pioneering spirit with the children, or you are dipping your toes in the waters of adventure travel for the first time, you should find your perfect holiday amongst our family adventures. Exotic cultures, breath-taking natural environments and amazing historical treasures have never been more accessible for the whole family to enjoy.
Group sizes are limited to a maximum of 16 to allow easier interaction with the local people and to leave fewer footprints in a world where it is important that we are environmentally aware. Choose one of our active family adventures and get ready for the greatest show on earth!
REAL Adventure for the whole Family!
Why choose KE?
Proudly independent, KE is one of the most well respected and longest established of adventure travel tour operators with a deserved reputation for innovation, quality of service, value for money and for providing once-in-a-lifetime holidays. By taking advantage of our expertise, you will make the most of your precious holiday time with your family and experience the very best of your chosen destination.
Experts with Local Knowledge
We have a team of dedicated staff, with many years experience of working in the travel industry, prior to having children of our own. We now travel widely with our families and the holidays in this brochure are the product of our extensive knowledge and experience. We understand what is needed to keep the children entertained, anywhere in the world. Our holidays have been designed to allow parents to pass on their love of travel to their children; to experience new cultures in a safe environment and to have fun as a family with people of all ages and from different backgrounds.
We believe that travelling in smaller groups benefits everyone. Our maximum group size is 16, which means that you will usually be travelling with just 3 or 4 other families. We are happy to take any family group on our holidays; single parents, large families, one child families and grandparents. Our experience shows that young and older children quickly mix and that friends are made across all genders and backgrounds.
KE Family Tour Leaders
The premium we place on professional standards of leadership ensures safety and security throughout your holiday. Leaders of our family groups are chosen specifically for their family-friendly approach as well as their technical skills and local knowledge. They will also be at hand to introduce an element of fun! Like a game of football on the beach, a cricket match with the local children in India or baking bread in the sands in the Moroccan desert.
Value for Money
Many of our family holidays are priced to include all meals and most activities, so that you know what the holiday will cost before you go. This is not the case with some of our competitors, who cut out meals and activities in order to lower prices. Check the information in the Fact File for each of the holidays in this brochure, which will tell you where the meals and airport transfers are included. On the website and within our individual holiday dossiers you will find a full breakdown.
Accommodation and Rooming
The accommodation we use is as varied as our holidays and destinations. Within one trip you might overnight in a comfortable hotel (often with a swimming pool), a mountain lodge and a riverside camp. You may even stay with a family in their home, a cowboy wagon, a dormitory in a refuge in the French Alps or a Bedouin tent in the desert.
As families come in different sizes and accommodation is varied, there is no set formula for rooming arrangements and therefore we recommend a flexible approach. For families of 2 or 4 you will have either 1 or 2 twin rooms. For families of 3 or 5 you may be allocated a triple and a twin room. Occasionally a family of 3 may be offered a twin and a single. How you decide to share rooms or tents is up to you. Please check the dossier for more information on rooming and note that all accommodation is subject to change from that listed.
How old are the other children?
Each holiday has a minimum child age which can be found in the Fact File. The activities levels of the holiday dictate how suitable the holidays are for children and therefore the minimum age. Speak to one of our travel specialists for advice on each holiday and to find out the ages of the other children in the group.
