Is there an minimum age?

The age limits for our adventure family holidays range on the location and activities. But we have adventure holidays suitable for everybody from babies right up to teenagers and grandparents.

Self-guided family adventures

Our self-guided holidays are perfect for families. Not only can you travel at your own pace without the pressure of keeping up with a  group but many of our trips don't have an age limit. On cycling holidays, most of the bikes come with the option of either a tag along or even a bike seat. Our car hire options usually have a car seat available. It's always best to call us to double check before booking. We also recommend a centre based self-guided family adventure holiday for those with young children to make the most of the flexibility of easily dipping in and out of activities and reducing the hassle of moving each day.

Guided family adventure holidays

Our range of family adventure holidays spread from trekking to the summit of North Africa's highest mountain to multi-activity beach holidays in the Algarve. We do have age limits on most of our guided family adventures. 



Wildlife family holiday

Head off into the bush on a safari in Botswana, search for sea turtles and frogs in Costa Rica and spot whales and wild elephants in Sri Lanka. Perfectly combined with cultural experiences and easy activities, our wildlife holidays will bring a smile to everyone's face.

Walking family holidays

Whether it’s energetic teenagers who are happy being out on the trail most of the day or slightly littler legs that enjoy a few hours or half-day walks, there is a holiday tailored for your family. The key to success is our expert leaders who set a “family-friendly” pace with enough distractions to ensure the miles happily tick by.

Multi-activity family holidays

The wide range of activities on offer such as kayaking, canoeing, bike rides, walks, farm visits, rafting, surfing, paddle boarding, camp fires and canyoning keeps everyone active. These trips mix and match the activities with either half or full days and are suitable for all abilities and children.

More information about family holidays

Yes, there is a minimum age for a KE family adventure holiday, and it depends on the holiday to what it is. We take into account a wide range of factors but mainly the included activities. The majority are suitable for families with children between 8 - 15yrs, but only certain trips we accept children as young as 4yrs. If you’re struggling to find a suitable active holiday for your family or have younger children, please contact us and we can discuss which itinerary will work for you. Private groups are also an option which can work well.
