Family Adventure Holidays
The fun begins here...
“We’re always on the lookout for exciting family adventure holidays – trips that have the right balance of fun, excitement, exploration and chill-out time.
Exodus has a knack of getting it spot-on. Our two-week adventure in southern India was a couple of years ago now, but our children – twins, now 11 – still rave about it. Highlights?
Well, Ellie (in picture) would probably pick the morning we spent bathing elephants in the River Periyar at Kodanad. Her brother Joe, meanwhile, loved the short treks we did in the hill stations of the Western Ghats.
As for their parents – well, it has to be the houseboat cruise on the Kerala Backwaters.”

The 2nd edition of his global guide to family travel ‘Travel with Kids‘ is due out in February 2012.
Will's top 7 reasons for booking a small group family adventure:
1. You're with like-minded families who share similar interests in travel.
2. Children have instant holiday pals.
3. Trips have a good balance of activities and time out.
4. Everything is organised for you, from transport to activities - and you know it's all going to be child-friendly.
5. You can explore countries that you wouldn't consider visiting independently.
6. Children in a group are more likely to feel motivated to try adventurous things.
7. There are trips to suit all ages, from tots to teenagers.
