Video: Tips for long-haul family adventure travel

travel hangoutLong-haul adventure trips are an exciting event — they can be fun, enriching and mind-expanding for the entire family. Yet for a parent organising and orchestrating one, there’s also that bit of anxiety. Because of the time and expense, we want to ensure we make the most of it and come away with happy lasting memories.

We gathered together some travel experts to discuss and share their tips about long-haul and adventure travel, and how to make it work with children from primary to teenage years. Ximena Zamora, a mother of two who works at Explora, which has breathtaking resorts in the sensational South American locations of Atacama, Patagonia, and Rapa Nui, shared her tips, along with Gretta from Mums Do Travel, Marianne from Mari’s World and Trish from Mums Gone To.

See their tips and advice below. To watch more Hangouts and BritMums videos, subscribe to our YouTube channel.

    We always take books with us when we go travelling. Ladybird mini-hardback fairytales are easy to carry in little bags. Books with rich illustrations will keep kids amused for hours – e.g. Where’s Wally? You Choose (Nick Sharratt) etc. Sticker storybooks, like the Elmer the elephant ones, are fab. Try to use paperback books if they’re big in size for easy packing. And, if you have an iPad, check out the wonderful interactive picture book Apps by publishing house. Fun, interactive stories make for a quieter long haul journey!
