Fancy taking your family on a trip around the world? Whether you are expert travelers or just got bitten by the travel bug, an adventure bucket list will surely take you a long way.  After all, it is the experience that makes the travel more meaningful. Read on and discover the top five family travel experiences you need to try. 

  • Cycle around Vietnam

Vietnam has all the makings of a perfect cycling destination.  See its rich culture and intriguing history unfold before your eyes as you navigate your way through vibrant cities, verdant countryside, and stunning nature trails.  It’s worth travelling to Vietnam in November to make use of the best weather conditions. There’s a pleasant surprise waiting around every bend, from the immense rice paddies of the Mekong Delta to the French colonial buildings of Ho Chi Minh to the tree-lined boulevards of Hanoi to the lush mountains of Sapa and the lantern-lit streets of Hoi An. Traveling around the country on a bicycle is probably the best way to meet locals and get a glimpse of their daily lives.  While you’re at it, make sure to try authentic Vietnamese cuisine.

  • Hot Air Balloon Ride in Majorca

A hot air balloon ride in Majorca will take you soaring through breathtakingly beautiful views, you’d soon forget your fear of heights.  This exhilarating adventure affords you with an incredible panorama family tour of Majorca, from 500 meters above, amidst fluffy clouds and boundless blue skies. Below, you will see stretches of olive trees, endless fields of sunflowers, vast orange groves, the glimmering Mediterranean Sea, and a magnificent outline of the neighboring islands of Cabrera and Menorca.  For an even more unforgettable experience, fly during sunrise or sunset, when light and shadow collide as the landscape’s lighting shifts in spectacular colors.

  • Drive Route 66 in America

Take your family on the ultimate road trip on a drive along the historic Route 66. Spanning over 2, 400 miles and covering eight states, the trip takes you from Chicago, Illinois to Los Angeles, California, through small-towns, obscure attractions, and mega cities.  Don’t miss the chance to stay in vintage hotels, take photos of live rattlesnakes, watch a Wild West Show, explore caves and Jesse James hideouts, and tour Native American reservations.  Plus, this trip is a great excuse for sampling that notoriously greasy American road food. 

  • Save Turtles in Costa Rica 

Volunteering in a conservation program is a rewarding means to incorporate adventure with environmental awareness.  Constantly threatened by pollution, poachers, and illegal fishing, turtles are among the most endangered animals in the world. Costa Rica has a wide range of impressive family conservation volunteering holiday projects that predominantly focus on saving leatherback and green turtles. As you work in the project, you get unlimited opportunities to enjoy the wondrous scenery of Costa Rica’s exotic beaches, mangrove rainforests, as well as its deep dark rivers, natural canals, and hidden lagoons.  Traveling, after all, is not just about seeing the world but also learning from it. 

  • Trek the Mountains of Morocco

Morocco’s Atlas Mountains are magical.  In winter, the peaks turn white with glistening snow while in summer they transform into brownish-gray lumps of craggy boulders. People traditionally think of Morocco as a toss-up between Casablanca and Marrakech, but a trekking holiday will take you and your family to the summit of Mount Toubkal, and around the M’goun area.  Explore the lush Azzaden Valley, with its pine forests that nestle the imposing waterfalls of the Tamsoult.  

Spend a night at a Berber village and learn about their ancient culture.  Don’t leave without indulging in their incredibly delicious cuisine of savory meat pies, hearty Tajine stews, and filling couscous. If you prefer a more luxurious accommodation, stay in a five-star mountain lodge in Kasbah du Toubkal, where you can relax in a comfortable bed while marveling at the amazing peaks of the Atlas mountain range.
