Exodus has announced a selection of new family trips for 2015, including Mount Kilimanjaro family departures.
Six new dedicated family holidays are offered as well as 11 new family departures on trips that were previously only offered to groups of adults, one of which is the Lemosho route Mount Kilimanjaro climb. The developments are in response to bookings that show a growing trend in families seeking more adventurous holidays, especially those travelling with older children and teenagers.
New for this year, child prices are valid for travellers aged 14 and under and other ideas include a Sri Lankan biking adventure and journeying through South East Asia to visit Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand.
In Europe, families can now also enjoy two new multi-activity weeks, one for the summer and one for the winter. Guests can head to Slovenia and the Soca Valley for summer adventures or the Tatra Mountains in Slovakia for a range of winter activities.
As examples of prices, a 12-day Kilimanjaro Climb/Lemosho Route is aimed at families with children aged 13 years and leads in at £2,799 per adult and £2,519 per child. The route, which offers the first departure on August 3, takes a western approach as guests cross the caldera of the Shira Volcano and traverse beneath the southern icefields of Kibo. The group spends eight days on Africa’s highest mountain, leaving time for acclimatisation, and includes flights, most meals, accommodation, a tour leader, Kilimanjaro park fee, all transport and listed activities.
Alternatively, an eight-day Slovenia Multi Activity is ideal for clients looking for an adventure with the family but don’t want to travel too far. On the banks of the Soca River, the ideal conditions combine for a variety of adventurous activities including white-water rafting, canyoning and kayaking. Exploits on dry land comprise mountain biking as well as a ride on one of Europe’s longest zip lines. The group trip is aimed at families with children aged 12 and above and leads in at £1,059 per adult and £953 per child. It includes flights, all breakfasts, six dinners and all accommodation, with the first departure on July 25.
