Refreshingly, it seems that environmental awareness is all the rage among our young travellers and, this year, there are more eco-minded family holidays around than ever before.

One of our favourite eco holidays is the brand new 11-day ‘Family Journey to the Manu Biosphere’ in Peru, run by Crees, a conservation education organisation operating in the Peruvian Amazon. Geared at young explorers aged 6-12, this family-friendly itinerary starts in Cusco and includes five days in the reserve, home to the greatest biodiversity in the world. Highlights include jaguar tracking and night treks.


Price: Steppes Travel offers this trip from £2,250 per adult and £1,895 per child with flights and accommodation.
