Vacations with teenagers

We'll let you in on a little secret: we love teenagers. These young adults, wonderful in their contradictions, are bursting with energy one minute, sleeping for hours the next. They're curious about the world and on the cusp of independence but still very much in need of a helping hand from time to time. Add to that the demands of school and there's little wonder they (and you) are so frazzled. A family vacation is the perfect chance to step outside of your normal routine, reignite your closeness, laugh together and relax. It's time to marvel at the world anew through their eyes.

Our family travel experts are great at conjuring up itineraries with a twist, finding that little something that ignites your teenagers' imaginations, be it a hip hotel or one-of-kind experience they can't wait to share on social media. From tiger safaris in northern India, exploring the Amazon rainforest in Peru, or gorilla tracking in Uganda, here are some suggestions guaranteed to delight both them and you.

We've introduced 'Crew' for older children and teens (aged 11+). A flexible 18-hour program split over six fun-filled days, Crew is specially designed for more independent kids who want time away from Mum and Dad whilst having fun with friends their own age.
