This represents how active you'll be every day, how many early starts you might have and how different the environment and climate will be.
|Easy||Journey times are short and the itinerary is relaxed with plenty of daily free time. The climate and environment will be pleasant so ideal for all, particularly first time adventurers.|
|Gentle||You'll enjoy activities and experiences most days, but none will be physically challenging. The climate will be steady and accommodation comfortable so suitable for everyone.|
|Moderate||Some days will have early starts. They'll be activities of mixed physicality with some travelling most days. Accommodation is standard, some nights may be isolated locations.|
|Demanding||You'll be on the go with activities and travelling most days. Your surrounding environment will be off the beaten track and some destinations may have a changeable climate.|
|Strenuous||A packed itinerary will mean most days will have early starts. The environment may be rugged, isolated or at altitude for a majority of the trip, so suitable for travellers who adapt quickly.|
Most children on our trips are aged between eight and 13 and the minimum age is highlighted on each trip page. We also offer dedicated teenage trips & departures (11+). Our Travel Consultants can confirm the ages of other children already booked on trips and find departures with similar child ages to your family. Every child and family is different so we suggest you use the adventure grades to help you decide if a trip is right for your children.
Our expert and friendly Travel Consultants are happy to assist you in any way they can and they have firsthand experience of many of our trips

Under each trip on the website you will find the Trip Notes. They include a full day-to-day itinerary, packing lists, visa and vaccination requirements and country details, such as currency accepted, tipping practice and key phrases. You can also ask a Travel Consultant to email or post the Trip Notes to you.
It is important to remember that flights during school holidays sell quickly and the prices increase as seats are filled. To help get the lowest flight cost we recommend booking early, three to six months in advance. And if you do book six months prior to your date of departure we will give you 5% off.
