Family Travel

Are you ready for the ultimate family travel adventure, away from tourist crowds? Our selection of land-based wilderness adventures and cruises bring families together while experiencing the world’s most spectacular regions. Or consider a custom family adventure. Adventure travel with kids has never been easier or more fun! We use the experience of traveling with our own children, parents and grandparents to help you choose the best family adventure trip. 

Adventure Travel with Kids

AdventureSmith offers dozens of adventure trips designed with the traveling family in mind. Our adventures are family tested and approved by our staff and their families.

What makes an adventure trip family friendly? While most of our trips are appropriate for any age, some can be particularly great for families traveling with children. Our experts are here to advise on which routes, lodges and ships are tried and tested by our own families and clients. These trips often have shorter drives if travel overland is needed, with frequent stops for active exploration and learning.

We often advise travelers stay at each location longer, reducing the need to pack and unpack. Scheduled activities consider the interests and abilities of younger travelers with plenty of instruction and flexibility. Local guides are expert kid coordinators with games, activities and diversions to keep youngsters and teens engaged and interested while creating opportunities for quality family time.

Accommodations are family friendly with flexible room arrangements and a pool wherever possible. Contact our specialists for more information or see our dedicated family travel guide pages for Alaska family cruises and Galapagos family cruises and tours or all family cruises.
