Have Exodus Travels really found the secret to the perfect family adventure holiday? It might sound like a bold claim, but it’s backed up by over 40 years experience creating activity-packed adventures all over the world just for families.
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.
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.
Best fit for eight years old and over; moderate activity levels; small groups of no more than 16 guests. From £1149 per person.
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). Which you have to admit can’t be too tricky when you have both Pacific and Caribbean beaches to play on; cloud forests stuffed with everything from Howler Monkeys to Sloths; natural nesting sights for almost every known species of sea turtle; soaring volcanoes; spectacular natural phenomena; not to mention national parks so gloriously untamed, visits are more like explorer-style expeditions.
Fortunately Exodus Travels are expert planners and have created a fantastic family holiday that fits into just over a week, packs in masses of active adventure, and still leaves more than enough for some essential Pura Vida immersion.
Best fit for nine years old and over; leisurely to moderate activity levels; small groups of no more than 16 guests. From £1999 per person.
Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula will amaze kids and not just with obvious stuff like incredible Caribbean beaches and water sports. It’s a deeply historic region, land of ancient Mayan myth and legend, stunning archaeological sites and awesome natural wonders like mysterious cenote, mangrove forests and even flocks of flamingos.
Exodus Travels have thought this holiday out beautifully for a balance of fascinating learning experiences, plain straightforward fun, heritage exploring and tons of vibrant local character and culture easily woven through everything. And of course, there’s beachy downtime in the mix too – just to add to the magic.
Best fit for eight years old and over; leisurely to moderate activity levels; small groups of no more than 15 guests. From £3199 per person.
Now you have an idea of what Exodus Travels mean when they say they’ve found the secret to perfect family adventure holidays, you’re probably ready for a closer look. Luckily their brand new family brochure packed with holidays for 2019 and 2020 is ready right now.
