Find the secret of perfect family adventure holidays

Arrow Discover more

So what exactly is the perfect family adventure according to Exodus Travels? Well it starts with them finding the ideal holiday fit for your particular family. Which means one that will make everyone happy; work exactly to the ages and stages of kids and squeeze in as much stuff to see and do as possible.

Of course, adventuring worldwide does give Exodus a bit of an advantage when it comes to putting families together with their perfect activity holiday, simply because there are so many incredible destinations to choose from. Though if that sounds like choice bordering on bewildering, fear not: each holiday is designed with an age range in mind (5-8 years, 9-12 and ages 13-16). Naturally upper and lower limits are suggestions rather than rules. So if you look at the handy activity-level guide and think your 10 year old could more than cope with an age 13-16 adventure, that’s fine.


To see how beautifully easy and exciting Exodus Travels have made adventuring with kids, you should definitely order your copy of their new family brochure right now. It’s packed with ideas for holidays right through to 2020, including 14 fabulous adventures kicking off for the first time in 2019.

While you’re waiting for that inspiration to arrive, here’s a sneak preview of just three never-before-seen holidays to give you a hint of what to expect.

8 day Finnish summer adventure holiday

It’s easy to believe Father Christmas traditionally overwinters in Finnish Lapland. Deep and crisp and even, doesn’t even begin to describe the snowy magic here from November to April: outdone only by endless performances from dazzling Northern Lights.

Then, come spring, a minor miracle takes place. Seemingly overnight, the snow disappears and Arctic wilderness becomes a land of lush and flower-filled meadows, rushing rivers and majestic green forests. Wildlife re-emerges and if you thought the locals were daring in winter, nothing compares to their adventurous activities when the sun’s up, and it barely sets in Finnish Lapland from May to September. That mix of excitement, untamed beauty and joy of living is exactly the type of well-rounded experience Exodus Travels searches for the world over. So no surprise to find summer in Finnish Lapland featuring large in their brand new 2019/20 family holiday collection.

9 day Costa Rica family escape

Little Costa Rica is one of the most bio-diverse countries on earth and Costa Ricans live by the rule of Pura Vida (basically the Good Life).
