Why choose The Family Adventure Company?

Since 1996, The Family Adventure Company has been delighting families with small group adventure holidays to most of the world’s amazing destinations. 

Whether you want to get active and cycle, raft and kayak or take things a little slower and sleep under the stars in the desert, get up close to some incredible wildlife, take to the seas and explore hidden coves by sail boat, or discover another culture, we provide an English speaking local leader who leads you through an exciting itinerary utilising local accommodation, a variety of fun transportation and a wide range of activities and opportunities.

1. Award winning

We are delighted to have been voted Family Traveller’s Best Adventure Holiday for Families by Family Traveller readers in 2016 – for the second year running!

2. UK’s leading family adventure specialist

The Family Adventure Company is the UK’s leading family adventure holiday specialist.
20 years ago, we pioneered the concept of small group family travel and now take more families on adventure holidays each year than any other adventure tour operator. We offer a wide range of trips to suit different ages and interests, including dedicated adventures for teens and their families and exciting wildlife, activity or cultural adventures.

3. Small groups

On every trip you enjoy a mix of must-see highlights and memorable experiences. Our small groups tours have an average size of 3 or 4 like-minded families providing ready-made friends for the kids and sensible conversation for the parents. The trips are ideal for families of all ages, solo parents , single-child families and you can even bring granny or grandad along.

4. Child prices for 14s and under

Unlike many others, we offer lower prices for kids aged 14 and under. Kids will automatically receive 10% OFF the adult full price so you’ll benefit from an extra three years of cheaper travel.

5. Local leaders

All our tours are led by local leaders, specially trained in running family adventures. When it comes to your hometown, we bet you know the stories behind the hidden sights, all the best parks and the tastiest spot to grab a bite to eat. But when you travel, you're suddenly the new family in town. That's why it makes sense for a local to help show you around. Find out more about our leaders.

By joining together we can now offer our customers a wider range of trips, guaranteed departures on most trips and more departure dates. We operate our trips under both The Family Adventure and Intrepid Travel.

We employ local tour leaders, support vital community projects around the world and carbon offset travel within destination countries.
