Megan Parkinson, from our supplier Chimu Adventures, shares advice on travelling in Patagonia with kids: "If you’ve got young children, then I recommend staying in one of the higher-end hotels that have specialist guides who think about what’s on offer for children. Many now have programmes where you arrive and the guides will sit and chat to you and help you decide what’s suitable. So maybe on the first day they will pick something less challenging and see how the children are, then give them other options. They’ll organise different meal times, there might be a pool... If you’ve got younger children, you need those kinds of facilities.
For older kids, if they’re into outdoor stuff, then Pucón in northern Patagonia has whitewater rafting and kayaking. You can climb volcanoes and there’s hot springs and things like that. I’d really recommend that for teenagers who need to be kept active all the time."
