3. Value for money

A family holiday is not cheap, and making sure you get value for your money whilst still being confident you'll have best time, is really important! Our family camping tours will provide your family with a real sense of adventure and all meals are included, which is a great way for the group to cut costs, whilst getting to know each other around a camp fire. Also included in our tours are all National Park entrance fees and a long list of fun activities. If you're travelling with children under the age of 16 you will also receive a 10% discount off the price of the tour. So you can rest assured that opting for an adventure holiday with us, will help to make sure you have more money to spend on souvenirs and those extra special holiday treats.

4. Creating life long memories with like-minded families

North America attracts families from all over the world and travelling in a small group will allow you to meet other like-minded, adventurous families. Together you'll explore beautiful landscapes and take on new experiences and hopefully new friendships will be formed. The kids will enjoy having other kids to play with, whilst in the evenings you can share stories around a camp fire with other parents.

5. Entertaining and educational

Everyone knows that education goes beyond the four walls of the classroom and a trip to North America will open their eyes to the world around them. With so many diverse landscapes from one state to the next, watch as your kids look on in amazement as they walk underneath the canopy of Giant Sequoias in Yosemite National Park and explore iconic cities. National Parks across the States offer Junior Ranger programmes where your kids can learn about the park and its wildlife, whilst having fun. At the end of the day they will be rewarded with their very own Junior Ranger badge and ceremony and it won't be long before they realise just how incredible North America really is.
