When two highly respected travel brands join forces to co-create a new generation of tailor-made luxury family holidays, you have to be interested. Especially when the collaboration results in The Voyageurs Collection and the brands involved are Original Travel and Voyageurs du Monde: just imagine, British know-how and French savoir faire fully invested in your next big adventure.

Dream big, the world is now yours for the asking

Since 2003, the Original Travel team has created over 50,000 inspired holiday itineraries, taking in most of the world and picking up some very coveted awards in the process – not to mention glowing customer reviews. And Voyageurs du Monde is quite simply the leading French specialist in tailor-made travel and has been for over 50 years. Together they’ve worked with every shape and size of family, tackled multi-gen holidays with ease, pulled off countless first flights with babies, entertained toddlers and engaged teens, organised safaris and activity holidays, arranged expeditions and supplied endless once-in-a-lifetime experiences. So wherever you’d like to go and however demanding you are, it’s almost guaranteed The Voyageurs Collection team has been there already.

Take a quick look through the latest portfolio of family travel itineraries across more than 50 countries and you’ll be delighted to find that it’s just as easy to take an iconic US road trip with kids as it is to meander round South West France. It seems no challenge is too daunting or intrepid and families are welcome to put that to the test with anything from trekking in the Atlas Mountains to exploring Norway by fjord or living like a local all the way round mesmerising Iceland. Making short work of long-haul is another great skill so don’t think twice about putting the Indian Ocean or Australia on the wish list, think wildlife safaris on the Kalahari or wildlife of another sort entirely in Western Canada. And as far as The Voyageurs Collection is concerned, every family holiday should be experience-rich and that can mean anything up to and including Amazon River cruises or star gazing on the Atacama Desert – yes, The Voyageurs Collection even makes the driest place on earth accessible to families.

The ultra-personal approach to family holidays

The Voyageurs Collection takes an ultra-personalised approach to tailor-made family holidays, which you should prepare to fall in love with and never again want your holidays any other way. For a start, from the moment you start dreaming, you’ve the undivided attention of your own travel expert who knows your destination back to front, understand families from first-hand experience and also appreciates you want scope to be creative. So feel free to get carried away. The Voyageurs Collection is definitely designed for passionate travellers and if something is possible they are the people to make it happen. And if you like limitless choice, think six continents and over 50 destinations; dozens of inspirational itineraries; more experiences than you can feasibly fit into a lifetime of holidays; along with a raft of accommodation options and even multiple transport ideas – Voyageurs du Monde actually own a lovely 19th century steamship on the River Nile.

Deciding where you want to go and what you want to do is the fun part of planning a family holiday. Organising all the details, making sure everything comes together perfectly and arranging the finer points of getting you to where you want to be smoothly and easily – a travel essential with kids - isn’t always so exciting. Happily, your personal travel expert is also a master planner, meticulous stickler for detail and thoughtful above and beyond, so you can breathe easy and leave all the heavy lifting to them – one of many reasons families love The Voyageurs Collection.
