Plan adventures, educational trips, relaxation and more for 2018.
It’s that time of year when we review recent adventures and plan for the year ahead. Here are five ideas to inspire your family’s travels:
1.Travel for adventure. Stoke your family’s passion for new experiences with Lindblad Expeditions and partner National Geographic through their recently launched Global Explorer’s program. Designed to inspire the next generation of global stewards, kids will hike up volcanoes, snorkel with sea lions, walk among giant tortoises, all while learning how to read maps, populate a field notebook, and build storytelling and observation skills. Celebrating 50 years of exploration, Lindblad launched the program in the Galápagos Islands and will expand to Alaska in 2018. Contact: Expeditions.com
2. Travel to relax. Check in to a luxury resort where the mesmerizing view, impeccable service and options for family fun will be enough to lower your blood pressure. At the Four Seasons in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, slumber at the gateway to world-class skiing, hiking, fly-fishing and two of the most breathtaking national parks in our portfolio of national treasures. Take advantage of the heated pool, top-notch spa and fine dining. Grown-ups can plan a day touring local art galleries while youngsters are engaged by the smart kids program.

3. Travel with the whole family. With busy careers and geographic spread, it can be challenging for the generations to spend time together. Group vacations can offer a workable solution. Cruises, all-inclusive resorts and resort rentals provide easy-to-predict pricing as well as built-in activities for every age group. Tour companies such as Thomson Family Adventures specialize in crafting compelling itineraries that appeal to multiple generations, including departures for parents and adult children. Book spacious condos with resort rental site Vacatia and you’ll have the option to make payments and split the bill with family members using Flexpay.
