Family Thanksgiving Destinations

Make this Thanksgiving one to remember with a unique family vacation close to home. Here are some of our top destinations to spend Thanksgiving week – fully customisable by our Travel Designers to fit your needs and children of all ages. 

WESTERN USA

Discover the freedom of the open road on a vacation to Western USA. Learn to see things differently as you try your hand at ranch life. The whole family can get involved and celebrate Thanksgiving by helping to preserve the land and wildlife that makes up Utah and Colorado as you stay at a working ranch.

Or embark on an iconic American Road Trip in a luxury RV and stop in national parks en route to try kayaking, rafting and hiking in epic national hotspots. Be thankful for what’s on your doorstep and stay in a lodge in the heart of Montana’s rural countryside, with stunning pine forests, open plains, and the Rocky Mountains waiting to be explored with your loved ones.

THE WILDS OF ALASKA

Escape to the wilderness on a journey to the heart of nature, to stop, pause, and be thankful for the beauty that surrounds you. Witness wild species such as dolphins, humpback whales, bears and eagles as you cruise through fjords and stunning vistas aboard your yacht.

Fly via floatplane to access the best river rafting in the area for an exhilarating activity for all the family to enjoy, or fly by helicopter to the tops of mountains where no one has been before you. Your Alaskan Thanksgiving adventure will be the perfect chance to disconnect together from the busy world.

COSTA RICA’S JUNGLES

Virtually a stone’s throw from the USA lies Costa Rica, home to an incredible amount of the world’s biodiversity. Expect unspoiled nature, brilliant diving, snorkelling and watersports activities, and a dense jungle filled with wildlife. Your Costa Rican Thanksgiving vacation won’t be complete without helicopter rides over the volcanoes, waterfall rappelling and ziplining through the jungle, as well as surfing on world-famous wave breaks. 

Make this a Thanksgiving to remember and stay at a luxury eco-lodge, spending your days exploring the jungle alongside passionate locals. They will help you to discover scarlet macaws and squirrel monkeys, and show you the amazing work they are doing to conserve and protect this beautiful environment.

CARIBBEAN ISLANDS

This Thanksgiving, reunite the whole family for a relaxing break in paradise. Stay onboard a luxurious superyacht, complete with a range of tenders and toys that will leave you all entertained for hours. Stop to explore deserted islands with white sandy beaches and tropical jungle, canoe down wild rivers and meet indigenous communities to learn about their way of life.

Celebrate Thanksgiving by giving back to the local community and assisting a wildlife conservation group to track endangered animals. In the evening, retire to the beach for sundowners that can’t be beaten anywhere else.
