trips for teens

Family adventure holidays with your teenagers

Get your teenagers away from their phones and computers on an adventurous and exciting holiday to not only broaden their minds and expand their horizons, but also bring you closer as a family. It's time to make a set of unique and special shared memories of the times you spent sea kayaking, watching elephants, zip wiring or snorkelling amongst thousands of tropical fish together.

For families with children hurtling towards that moment where they leave the nest for good, and sadly choosing to go on holiday with friends over mum and dad, what better way to bring you all together for one or two more memorable holidays to a beautiful part of the world? By choosing one of our trips to such exotic and far flung destinations as Cuba, Finland, Myanmar, Slovenia and Tanzania, your teens will team up with like-minded and similar-aged children, having an absolute ball together and giving you some precious rest and relaxation.

Be it action, safari, culture, beach, or all of the above, we have some fantastic options to suit what your family's interests as well as some adventures you may have never even heard of.

Here is a selection of trips particularly suited to teenagers, with an age guide of 10/11 - 18 years. However, we have a much wider selection of holidays that accept children of a younger age.
