Family walking holidays. Tours & holidays in 2016 & 2017

It can sometimes be a hard sell persuading children to go on family walking holidays. However, throw in a safari camp, a donkey to carry your bags, a mountain yurt or a swim at the end of each day and they start to warm to the idea. And if you get a guide who knows exactly how to get young people interested in landscape, wildlife and all the natural adventures that await, your family walking holiday is made.

Mercantour family walking holiday, France
Awesome, it has raised the bar for next year! (more)Tony Johnson
The whole thing was memorable! Our 6 year old and 4 year old leading "Leonidas" our donkey through the French Alps, sleeping in a beautiful yurt in an Alpine meadow, and feeling like we'd done something completely different to the typical "bucket and spade" type of holiday. (more)Alison Godfrey
The mountains, flora and fauna in an exceptionally beautiful and unspoilt part of the world, within and on the periphery of the Mercantour National Park in the French maritime Alps were most memorable. (more)Nick Lampert
From £440 - £570 excluding flights
Andalucia self guided walking holiday, Spain
Fantastic and restful (more)Henrietta Naish
Just what we wanted. We used the local restaurants and bars, used the local taxi, shopped in the village. They are all very friendly and helpful but it does help if you speak a bit of the language. (more)Trev Liberson
The entire experience was delightful, and it would be too difficult to pick out any one aspect. We had a terrific time. (more)lin pattullo
From £350 excluding flights

This was a very well organised holiday, all of its aspects were effective and co-ordinated. In fact a thoroughly enjoyable week. (more)Nicholas Yates
The most memorable part was the whole hiking tour all together, being able to accomplish it as a family, experiencing the local hospitality and unbelievably splendid nature! We´ve had the time of our lives! Found our paradise at Lake Como, and will return, for sure! (more)Jeanette Reinholdtsen

The views of Dubrovnik from the top of Mnt Srj on a perfect day were spectacular...A very professional and supportive company to deal with. The trip notes provided were very accurate and everything went according to plan and more than lived up to our expectations. (more)Joy Field
From €620 - €790 excluding flights
Nepal family holiday
Memorable parts? Staying with our 3 young (9, 8 & 3) children in a village community homestay. The villagers and local guides were all fantastic! Tips? Don't hesitate, just do it! Local benefits? Yes, especially in Chitwan where we stayed for 3 days in a Tharu village homestay. Overall rating? We spent 8 days there over Christmas (including Christmas day itself in Kathmandu). It will certainly be a Christmas that we and the children will always remember as one of the... (more)Philip Langman
