Family Walking Holidays

Embark on a family adventure and create memories that will be shared for years to come. Family walking holidays allow families to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life and immerse themselves in the incredible landscapes surrounding the walking trails.

We have a diverse range of family walking holidays, catering for both experienced hiking families and those looking for an introduction to multi-day walking in some of the world’s most stunning locations. Africa's highest peak, Mount Toubkal, is a perfect challenge for teenagers and a picturesque setting for families to embark on a walking holiday in Morocco. A mini trek around Mont Blanc allows families to relish the charm of French chalets and Alpine huts and stare in awe at the colossal beauty of the Alps.

Why do a Family Walking Holiday with KE

KE provides trusted, flexible experiences backed by ABTA & ATOL protection and round-the-clock support. Carefully selected accommodations are handpicked by our tour specialists, which include everything from small family-run guest houses and eco-lodges to supported camping and mountain huts. Your family walking holiday is an opportunity to immerse yourself in the natural beauty and culture of each destination while enjoying the comfort and peace of mind that comes with expert planning and support.

Expert Tour Leaders

All our KE family tour leaders are truly exceptional when it comes to creating memorable adventures for families. They are great with children and know how to make every moment engaging and enjoyable. Their expertise and knowledge about the destinations are second to none, ensuring that you and your family will have a rich and educational experience. Alongside making sure your holiday is fun, our family holiday specialist guides prioritise safety whilst maintaining a friendly and enthusiastic approach.

Family-Friendly Food

Most accommodation will be able to offer a more traditional European Menu if needed with bread, chips, pizza, pasta, fruit and vegetables. However where ever possible we try to introduce our young (and adult) travellers to local dishes, which we believe is an important aspect of a holiday and it’s amazing what people want to try after some fresh air and exercise!

More Information About Family Walking Holidays

Yes, there is a minimum age for a KE family walking 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.

To show the relative difficulty of our family walking walking holidays, each trip is graded on a scale of 1 to 12, with 12 being the most challenging. In turn these grades are divided into YELLOW (Leisurely), GREEN (Moderate), BLUE (Challenging) and RED (Tough). Our simple, colour-coded grade symbol provides an indication of the difficulty of each trip.
