Great Adventures, Flexibility and Supportive – Our trips are not only great adventures but have an enormous amount of flexibility:

  • We can provide your family with an adventure on your chosen dates
  • We can adjust the itinerary to suit you (add days, reduce days)
  • We can provide additional support for younger children (if deemed suitable)

These treks are enormously rewarding and educational in terms of culture and terrain.

Sahara, Atlantic Morocco | Annapurna, Nepal | Everest, Nepal | Huskies, Norway

Sahara Desert Families

Sahara Desert – a vast, safe area within which to have great fun with children. Lose the mobiles, ipads and anything that needs electricity! Averagely fit children of approximately 12 – 14 years old should be able to complete this trek unaided (ie on their own feet throughout). Additional camel support to aid tired legs is available.

Best time to go is Mar/Apr and late Sept/Oct and early Nov. Book early if your thinking Half Term or other holiday period as flights get expensive to Marrakech.

  • How Long? – 10 days UK – UK, 6 days trekking, can be reduced by either shortening the trek and/or altering the travel plans.
  • How Good? – Superb in a group as there’s nothing around you except lots and lots of sand. Seriously good fun with the high dunes and it’s a very safe area. It’s camping in a warm environment (if not hot).

Himalaya Annapurna Sunrise family trek

Annapurna Sunrise Trek – a wonderful trek in the fabulous Annapurna mountains of Nepal. The daily treks have generally been kept short to allow for children. Suitable for averagely fit children 12 years upwards; younger children may need support. Pony or porters can be used depending on age/weight. Max altitude 3200m.

Try Easter 2019 – perfect time to go. Best time Mar/Apr/May and mid Sept – mid Nov.

  • How Long? – 11 days UK – UK, 5 day trek, can’t really be shortened. We already include a full day (2 nights) in Pokhara post trek as this is a wonderful place but perhaps consider an additional day in either Pokhara or Kathmandu.
  • How Good? – Very; the whole Nepal experience is an eye opener from the minute you land in Kathmandu. Personally trekked this route in 2016 with 2 children aged 9 and 14.

Everest Experience Family trek

Everest Experience – great overall experience for anyone, let alone children. Lots of really good views of Everest itself but does not go to Everest Base Camp; a step too far! Goes as far as Tengbouche, max altitude 3900m.

Easter 2018 or an extended Half Term. Best time Mar/Apr/May and mid Sept – mid Nov. 

  • How Long? – 13 days UK – UK, 9 day trek but that’s a generous number of days (plenty in hand should something need to change). It can be shortened.
  • How Good? – Really good but perhaps for the more adventurous rather than first timers to this sort of thing. The flight up to Lukla is exhilarating to say the least and some of the climbs are tough, but doable at a slow enough pace.

Norway Dog Sled Husky Safari Adventure – wonderful 3 day (2 nights) arctic adventure through pristine arctic wilderness but perhaps not for anyone under 12. Suffice to say, it is cold! Children will go in the sled, adults will drive (mush) the sleds. Full outer clothing protection is provided. This may not be the cheapest Husky Safari you will see but I can assure you it is one of the best. The terrain and Lodge are outstanding.

Feb and Mar are the best times. 

  • How Long? – 8 days UK – UK, 3 day/2 night Husky Safari. Travel is in through Finland, the Lodge is in Norway.
  • How Good? – Very. The terrain is far more interesting than many others and the base Lodge is very special. Extremely educational with the adorable Huskies and camping out in arctic conditions but fear not, these trips are very well equipped.

Morocco Atlantic Coast trek

Morocco’s Atlantic Coast – excellent overall trip experiencing Marrakech, a great 5 day trek along Morocco’s Atlantic coast and a couple of nights in the chilled out port of Essaouria. Good for kids about 10 upwards, plenty to see along the route, some ups and downs and of course the sea and the beaches. It’s camping, there’s camel support so the kids will love the environment.

Year round but best done in summer months , ie Jun – Sep. 

  • How Long? – 9 days UK – UK, 5 day/4 night trek. Travel in through Marrakech, drive out to the coast.
  • How Good? – Very. The terrain is interesting and not too physical. The camping is enjoyable, food excellent and the camels educational!

Morocco Trekking

Morocco, Bespoke Trekking – Morocco is under 4 hrs flying time from the UK, no jet lag and therefore makes a great destination for a family holiday even for a few days. Factor in a day’s travel away from Marrakech and it opens up a huge array of opportunities for some walking at either low level or in the mountains. For families, we can provide mule support for kids to take the strain if and when they need it.

The Dades valley is a year round region as it is only 5 – 6 hrs away from the Sahara. Toubkal is just up the road and the Mgoun region is not that much further.

We would suggest 6 days as a min will get you a decent holiday with 3 – 4 days of beautiful walking in amongst the low lying hills and Berber villages.

Call us on 01529 488159 for sample itinerary.

Year round but best done in summer months , ie May – Sep. 

  • How Long? – 6 days upwards UK – UK, treks can be designed to suit. Travel in through Marrakech.
  • How Good? – Very, and flexible. Can be camping or local gites and small Riad/hotels or whatever you wish.
