Trips for little people who want big adventures
01
GO HORSEBACK RIDING IN ECUADOR

Learn to work a lasso like a chagra cowboy then saddle up and ride out across the Ecuadorian countryside. Kids at Hacienda Zuleta can help round up the ranch’s herd of 40 horses, or ride out to a waterfall or through local villages. And they can finish their day munching delicious S’mores around a bonfire.

SPY GIANT TORTOISES IN THE GALAPAGOS

If your kids spend most of their time glued to their TV screen watching Animal Planet, take them to the Galapagos. Here they can see some of planet Earth’s most unique creatures including blue-footed boobies and giant tortoises. Mum and dad will be pretty impressed too.

GO ZIPLINING IN WHISTLER

Ride North America’s longest zipline, the Sasquatch, through the picturesque ski resort of Whistler. Along the way kids can learn about Canada’s ecology and wildlife before they go for an adrenalin-filled two-kilometre ride through the treetops. You can also ride the zipline at night and enjoy a thrilling ride under the stars.

KAYAK WITH OTTERS IN CALIFORNIA

Who needs to kayak with orcas in Canada when you can be paddling with sea otters in California? These cuddly characters can be found sunning themselves in Morro Bay. They wrap themselves up in kelp to make sure that they can kick back and relax without having to worry about floating away.

VISIT MACCHU PICHU IN PERU

Just because you have kids doesn’t mean that you can’t go on an awfully big adventure. Take them to the land of the Incas and enjoy a trek in Peru. Lightfoot Travel can arrange for you and your family to enjoy a leisurely trek between luxurious mountain lodges and even take a trip to see Paddington's cousins — the spectacled bears of Peru.
