While the school holidays may be at an end, adventure travel company Intrepid Travel has released their new range of family adventure getaways to help plan for the future.
“Families are growing increasingly curious and confident to visit more ‘exotic’ destinations, like Turkey and Morocco with kids, which may be difficult to arrange on your own due to language barriers,” says Dyan McKie, Intrepid Travel’s Family Product Manager.
Some of the trips include:
A Turkish adventure: Intrepid’s 10-day family to Turkey encourages families to get creative in Goreme during a Turkish pottery class. You can also learn to cook authentic Turkish food with a local family, be guided around the city of Kas, visit the surreal landscape of Cappadocia, and take a boat trip around Kekova to hop between islands and marvel at submerged ruins. This trip finishes in Istanbul, where kids will learn the art of Turkish water marbling using traditional methods and materials.
Get under the spell of Morocco: Camping under the stars in the Sahara Desert and taking a camel ride deliver unforgettable memories on the 110-dayfamily adventure in Morocco. On this new Morocco trip, families will be guided around the best of the country and visit famous cities of Fes and Marrakech by local leaders, whilst having free time to rummage the spice markets and sip loose leaf teas. The trip gives a great local insight with a visit to the small village in Midlet and drive through scenic mountains, valleys and fields past ancient kasbah.
Travel to Europe and escape to Greece: Soak up the sun, archaeological sites and rich culture on a weeklong family trip to Greece. Families will start-off in Athens where they’ll discover the city’s unique vibrant contrast, from the world-famous Acropolis and Column ruins, to the city’s modern 2004 Olympic stadium. They will also visit the island of Lefkas, where they’ll labour for their lunch and learn to cook authentic Greek food. The trip ends on Corfu, where families tour the island, visit a Donkey Rescue Centre and relax on the beaches of Paleokastritsa.
