Activity Holidays for all the family
  • Grand Canyon

    Included Family Adventure If your idea of the perfect family holiday is relaxing in a luxury hotel while the kids amuse themselves on the beach, then our family activity holidays may not be for you, but if you want to have an adventure of a lifetime, then read on... As well as offering plenty of free time for swimming or just 'chilling out', all our family adventure tours offer a fantastic variety of included activities, from the gentle fun of an off-road 4x4 tour to the adrenaline rush of white water rafting. What about riding the range like a cowboy in the desert southwest or spotting bears in Canada?

  • Child on Sky Walk

    Optional Activities You don't have to be athletic or have previous experience to enjoy our family adventure holidays. Some of the more prominent activities for every trip are listed under the "Optional Activities" section on each tour page. These activities are arranged and paid for locally through your tour leader, so you can choose which ones to participate in, and you can be assured that our tour leaders know where to get the best group rates. With our activity holidays you can tailor your family's tour according to your budget or level of adventure.

  • Teen departures

    Child ages The average age of children on our family adventures is 13 and due to the nature of our trips, the minimum age is 8 years old (children aged 6 & 7 will be considered on request). Younger siblings are welcome upon request. We also offer all children 16 years and under a 10% discount on the standard tour prices of all our USA family holidays.

  • Monument Valley Group

    Small Group Family Travel A small group ensures a more flexible and rewarding travelling experience and with a maximum of just 13 passengers on most tours, it feels more like travelling with friends than an organised tour. Families come from all over the world, with a shared desire for an active adventure tour in the great outdoors. And if you have 8 or more family members looking to travel, why not let Grand American Adventures run your own private family activity holiday? And you're not limited to just our family adventure tours, Grand American Adventures can operate most of our adult itineraries for families of all ages.
