Escape the typical family holiday and have a family adventure instead. World expeditions family adventures are designed to excite, educate and entertain both the parents and younger travellers in your family. Whether it’s an action packed multi-activity adventure that sees you exploring the colours and culture of North Vietnam, to a family adventure that takes in the highlights of Peru, or climbing up Cradle Mountain for some of the most sublime views in Tasmania, World Expeditions can provide you with a range of memorable family adventures.

As we believe travelling is more than just sight-seeing, our family trips have been crafted to immerse you deep into the culture of a country. All are manicured with a young traveller in mind, and the minimum age is typically 8-12 years old.

Still not convinced? Check out some of the benefits of embarking on a family adventure!

1The family that plays together, stays together...

Escape the daily routine of work, school, the daily to-do lists and the ever present internet and digital devices. Family adventures allow you to spend time as a family and get to know each other - without the daily distractions. Find an activity that allows you to spend time together and talk, while you explore some of the most stunning landscapes the world has to offer.

Our Top Pick? Cradle Mountain Family Adventure

Cradle-MountainExplore the beauty and serenity of Cradle Mountain National Park in Tasmania on this short and exciting walking holiday. As you make your way towards the summit of Cradle Mountain you’ll be greeted with 360 panoramic views of Tasmania's highest mountains and surrounding wilderness area from its summit ... what better way to inspire your children to make them want to explore even more?

2An education like no other...

School may teach your children about maths, science and English, but when it comes to worldly advice, some things are better experienced than taught. Travel gives your children the opportunity to learn first hand about things they may have learnt in school, creating an interactive learning experience that will teach children about different cultures, food, history, geography, climate, environment and so much more. The cherry on the top? Learning through experience is way more fun for them than learning it through homework!

Our Top Pick? North India Adventure

North-India-AdventureWhat better way to explore the rich diversity of Northern India than with your family on a cycling adventure? The easy and flat roads take you on relaxed routes along quiet village back roads, with the support of a back up vehicle for your convenience. This exciting itinerary includes visits to Jodhpur, Jaipur and the Taj Mahal to witness some of the most impressive historic architecture India has to offer.

3Life is an adventure, especially on holiday....

There are so many ways to have adventures overseas with your family, and they don’t all have to be challenging adventures like climbing a mountain. It can be as simple as going to the jungle and viewing the animals local to the habitat, or paddling down a river to get a new viewpoint for the scenery. Or cycling from one town to the next. Embarking on these journeys with your family can keep your children entertained, enlightened and excited about what other adventures lie in every corner of our planet.

Our Top Pick? Family Adventure In Peru

peru-family-adventureIf you can’t decide on exactly what kind of adventure to embark on, why not choose them all?!

Your focus will shift seamlessly from history, culture, landscape and architecture as you take in the highlights of magnificent Peru with your family!
