This trip is for families only (including any aunts, uncles or cousins who’d like to come along, of course). As long as you’re travelling with a child under the age of 18, you’re a family in our eyes. Plus, unlike other travel companies, children aged 17 years and younger receive a 10% discount off the price of their trip. Travelling our way is a bit like travelling with a group of friends. Made up of 3-5 like-minded families, the kids tend to hit it off on these trips straight away, allowing you to enjoy some well earned R&R. We often find the whole family ends up making friendships with people from all over the world, staying in touch long after the adventure ends.

Our family group sizes are small enough to avoid the crowds and reach some out-of-the-way places, but big enough for a good social mix. Our average group size of 10 allows us to hop aboard local boats, buses or trains, eat at friendly, family-run restaurants and kick back in traditional accommodation and homestays.

We know the biggest challenge on a family trip is keeping the kids entertained. So we’ve planned in advance. Nearly all of our hotels feature pools, and each day has a great mix of action-packed adventure and flexible free time. Your local leader can also suggest activities based on your kid’s hobbies or school curriculum.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Family adventure holiday to Nepal

On this trip: Our policy of staying in locally owned accommodation, having local group leaders and using transport owned and operated by local people wherever possible is continued in Nepal. Our small groups (maximum of 16 people) have a minimal impact on the Himalayas' fragile environment as we explore. All tour guides are responsible for ensuring that the guests understand the nature of the environment that they are in and minimise the impact that they may have.

When we are camping we only use designated campsites, collect and dispose of all litter, boil all drinking water instead of using bottled water, and use responsible cooking fuels (kerosene) instead of wood. Our porters are equipped with suitable clothing and footwear for the type of trek they are about to work on, and this is recorded at the start of the trek.

In addition the actual size and /or awkwardness (e.g. fluids, mattresses etc.) of the load to be carried, as well its weight is assessed prior to porters setting off on trek, ensuring that only comfortable loads are allocated. During the trek there is fascinating insight into the simple lives of the friendly Nepalese people, parents and kids alike will love the contact with local villagers.

Our Responsible Travel Code: Clients who travel with us will automatically receive a copy of our Responsible Travel leaflet. This contains details and advice on how you can make a positive difference when you travel. If you would like a copy in advance of travel please contact us.

Charity Partnerships: We work in partnership with Plan International. Plan works with some of the world’s poorest communities where three out of four children die before the age of five. We also support Friends of Conservation – an international charity committed to working with local people to develop a balance between their needs and the wildlife with which they share the natural habitat and ecosystems.

Carbon Balancing: Global warming is a real issue and is a direct result of your travel. We have teamed up with Climate Care to give you the opportunity to offset the carbon emissions from your flight. You’ll be asked upon booking if you want to donate – with set amounts from £5. As a company we offset the carbon emissions from all staff travel in full.

Our Foundation: We’ve highlighted a few of the ways in which we offer our support, financially or otherwise, and now you can, too. We have set up our own foundation, which will administer funds donated by you. A small donation of £1 per person will be taken when booking a holiday and that money will be put to good use by one of our carefully selected projects. If you don’t want to make the donation, just tell us when you book.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


The whole experience will live with us forever and it is almost impossible to single out separate elements. Overall the people were fantastic, so friendly, helpful and humorous and our guide was simply outstanding. I suppose the highlights were:
* Arriving in Kathmandu was the culture shock we had been told about
* The trek was unbelievable - the people, the scenery, the ingenuity and strength of the Sherpas and the views
* The wildlife, and in particular bathing the elephants
* The variety of transport and accommodation really made a difference and gave us a really complete experience
* Surprisingly, we were amazed when the five boys in our group taught six Nepalese boys how to play rugby on piece of flat ground some 3,000 feet up a Himalayan mountain using a burst volleyball. It was magical. The British won, but only just!

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Don't hesitate it's fantastic. If you're going with children we found it vital that they went with children roughly their own age. Camping for three nights and walking for four days meant that they could bond and play together. We did our research and chose this holiday partly because the children were of similar age and as a result everyone got even more out of the experience.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?


Yes, our guides and Sherpas were local people (all of them never having left Nepal before) and they rely on us for a living. The trekking was very environmentally friendly and the development work (tourism infrastructure) that the operator is doing with local people is there for all to see.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


We saved up for a long time for this holiday, convincing ourselves that it would be our holiday of a lifetime (none of us had been outside Europe before). It didn't disappoint - it was a wonderful, unforgettable, truly memorable experience. Easily five star.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


The snow - so long since we have had 'real' snow in the south of England.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Take lots of thin layers - outer wear provided by company excellent = boots, gloves, hats, outer romper suit.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?


I hope so - many souvenirs locally made and beautiful.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Lovely. It gave a taste of winter sports for the uninitiated without exhausting or scaring too much.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


The trek was an excellent adventure - Jagan, our guide was outstanding, especially with our children (7 & 5 years old) who were able to walk the entire trek!

2. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?
I think making an opportunity to speak English with the locals (mostly children) helped them gain confidence in their abilities.

3. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?
We had a great holiday - lots of things to see and do. The people of Nepal were very gracious hosts. We will consider returning when the kids are older for a longer trek.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


Trekking in the mountains, the guide Raj ,the team and the local environment made it a most memorable experience.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Book it.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?


Benefited some people directly involved, was not sure if it benefited the towns we trekked through that much. Yes, minimised impact locally on environment, though just by taking part in such travel so much fuel is used.

4. Any other comments?


Nepal is a beautiful country with wonderful people. Our guides Raj and the team on the trek were absolutely brilliant.
