Family Road Trips

For better or for worse, a family road trip is often one of our first holiday memories. Yet long car journeys with children aren't all back seat squabbles and endless cries of "are we there yet?". Take a look at this selection of family friendly itineraries before fastening your seat belts for a game of I Spy you'll never forget.

Alentejo to Andalucia, Portugal & Spain

Spain and Portugal have long been firm family favourites when it comes to a summer holiday and combining the two lends itself perfectly to an unforgettable European escape with youngsters.

Whilst action packed, this itinerary is a world away from the hustle and bustle of daily life and perfect for wildlife aficionados as well as adventure seeking teens.

California
San Francisco to Los Angeles, California
