Traveling With Kids Traveling With Teens Custom Family Adventures Especially for Grandparents

Multi-Generational Travel

Many of our moderately active, non-camping trips are well-suited to parents, grandparents and kids of all ages and in all combinations. JOURNEYS offers family reunion or extended family trips with varied or optional activities and flexible accommodation and eating plans.  We favor multiple night stays in accommodations with comfortable grounds, available amenities and a casual atmosphere. Our local guides are great at organizing activities engaging younger family members while still offering expert nature, cultural and area knowledge for the benefit of sophisticated older travelers. Everyone has their own special travel interests. Let us know what they are and we will build a multi-generational trip around them.
