Trips for little people who want big adventures
 
01
SWIM WITH TURTLES IN THE PHILIPPINES

Hands up if you want to swim with turtles! Kids staying at Amanpulo in the Philippines can join the scuba team for a snorkelling trip around the house reef where they can feed the fish then swim with the resident sea turtles. The resort has its own turtle hatchery. More than 1,900 turtle eggs were laid on the beach in 2018. You can ask the team to call you when the eggs hatch so you can watch the baby turtles rush to the ocean. 

 

02
MEET A SHERPA IN NEPAL

Your kids might not be able to hike to the top of Everest, but if they head to Nepal they can enjoy dinner with a real-life Sherpa who has. He or she will be able to entertain them with exciting stories about their climbs and maybe inspire your tot to live a life of adventure when they are older.

03
TREK WITH ELEPHANTS IN LAOS

For a jungle trek with a difference, go for a stroll with a herd of elephants. Take a short boat ride to the elephants’ home, then get ready to feed them bananas and give them a bath in the river. You can then join them on a walk through the forest and even take a trip to a waterfall.

04
JOIN A PIRATE BOAT IN THE MALDIVES

If you thought that Captain Jack Sparrow had some swashbuckling adventures, you haven’t set foot on the Pirate Cruise at One&Only Reethi Rah. Children can set sail on this pirate boat that can be found in the Maldives. They will have the chance to make their own pirate accessories and then go on a treasure hunt. Shiver me timbers.

05
TAKE A MASTERCLASS WITH A PRO SKATEBOARDER IN THAILAND

If your kids seem to spend more time on wheels than they do walking, take them to The Hot Spot at Amanpuri in Phuket. The kids’ club features a new skateboarding half-pipe and your children will be able to practise their moves on custom-built skateboards. But what will make your kids really excited is that skating pros from California will be there to show them tips and tricks.
