Austin Adventures

Austin Adventures has written the book on creating successful family trips led by top guides. This adventure travel company offers a variety of family trips that will take your family to fascinating places around the globe. Take the children to Iceland, the land of volcanoes and waterfalls. Why not book a multisport trip that includes sea kayaking in Croatia, or one that includes biking in Austria? You could take the family rafting on the Salt River, biking on old railroad beds and exploring the South Rim during a Grand Canyon adventure.

 

REI Adventures

REI is a popular sports store, with equipment for every activity imaginable. But, the company also has a division offering weekend and longer adventure trips, including several designed for families. Would you like to take your kids on a family-friendly, five-day hiking trip through Brice and Zion Canyons in Utah? How about seas kayaking, cycling and hiking in the San Juan Islands. REI makes it easy for you to take a Scotland Family Adventure, head to the Greek islands on a family trip and even hiking, kayaking and zip-lining in Thailand. With each trip, REI include a list of what’s needed for the various activities.

 

Intrepid Travel

Intrepid Travel’s niche is creating trips where travelers have more of a chance to travel and stay like the locals. The company offers family vacations around the globe, and suggests it would be even more fun to get a group of families to vacation together. How about a Peru family trek or a family vacation in Morocco. With each trip description, the company includes a useful, “Is this trip right for you?” list of questions to help you decide.

 

Butterfield & Robinson

Butterfield & Robinson was voted No. 1 by readers of Travel & Leisure because of the imaginative trips designed to inspire and educate both kids and parents. An exploration of Japan from Tokyo to Hiroshima, or the Sydney family adventure may change your children’s perspective about the world. Hiking with your kids on a Dolomites family adventure gives you time to talk to them away from cell phones and computers.
