Grand Canyon
A family-oriented adventure holiday can be a thrilling experience that will bring you and your children closer together. If you've ever worried that your kids are going off too much on their own pursuits, you know how important it is to share some quality recreational activities with them. By taking a family adventure vacation together, you'll not only bond with your children, but you'll also be giving them happy memories that will last a lifetime.

Family Adventure Destinations

Here are a few family friendly destinations you might want to consider:

Grand Canyon

The Grand Canyon  is a steep-sided canyon carved by the Colorado River in the United States in the state of Arizona. It is contained within and managed by Grand Canyon National Park.

For the ultimate family adventure, take a discovery trip to the Grand Canyon. While there, you can take a guided tour and learn about the history of this magnificent wonder of the world. Afterward, you can hike along ancient Native American paths, go horseback riding or even go rafting down the Colorado River.

Grand Canyon Sky walk

After your time at the Grand Canyon, you'll want to visit a few of the famous national parks in this part of the country. For a magnificent living history lesson, you can tour the Navajo Tribal Lands in Monument Valley and then hike along the splendid natural geological formations in Arches and Canyonlands National Parks. You'll get to experience the sunset of a lifetime as you trek across these dusty, historic western trails.



If you've never been to Mexico before, you won't believe the colors, sights and sounds of this beautiful, vibrant country. Your adventure trip to Mexico can include a boat trip to the Celestun Nature Reserve and Lagoon, where you'll see splendid waterfalls, hike dense jungle trails and see native wildlife in their home habitat. Afterward, you can go horseback riding along paths that were carved out by the Mayans and then visit the famed Mayan ruins of the region.

Before you return to civilization, you'll want to visit an authentic hacienda, or you can choose to tour a working plantation, where you'll be able to watch the process of planting and harvesting coffee and other produce.

Family Package Tours

Wherever you decide to go, you'll have a much better time if you opt for a family package tour. A package tour takes all of the hassle and stress out of traveling. Your itinerary will be completely planned for you, so you'll be able to spend all of your vacation time with your family instead of worrying about tickets, traveling schedules and bookings. Best of all, family package trips usually offer great deals on special excursion tours that you might not have access to otherwise.

For the best possible family adventure tour, choose activities that all of you can share, regardless of age. If you're traveling with young children, you'll want to embark on adventures that they can enjoy as well, such as hiking or swimming. For older children and teens, you can try climbing, biking and rafting.

No matter where you decide to go, make sure to bring your camera, because you and your kids will want to take plenty of photos during your action-packed holiday. Likewise, bring along a travel journal for every member of your family, because you'll want to be able to share the memories of your holiday for years to come.
