Pelorus is often challenged to create the most incredible experiences for those with children, helping to create lifelong memories and bringing families together to explore the world differently. Here are some of our top ideas, contact our team to explore more or to discuss creating your family vacation based on these ideas. 

Whale Iceland

See who can spot the most dolphins and whales from your boat in Reykjavic’s surrounding waters, and then get your adrenaline pumping as you speed across spectacular landscapes together on ATVs. In the evening, settle into your remote lodge, perfect for cosy nights in as a family, and the ideal place to witness the awe-inspiring Northern Lights.

Marvel together at the diverse landscapes as you soar through the air by helicopter, and then venture into a dormant volcano crater via open cable lift, or go horseback riding across the stunning Troll Peninsula. The whole family is sure to have an action-packed and educational adventure.

Embark on a safari adventure that allows the children to see and learn about the animals, as well as the exclusive chance to take part themselves. The whole family can step into the shoes of the rangers and accompany the experts in tracking the critically endangered black rhino, traversing the plains on a private game drive, and keeping your eyes peeled for sightings of Africa’s Big Five.

Experience a comfortable camp where you can explore the plains and glimpse these incredible animals at all times of day. Take an epic sunrise helicopter ride over Suguta Valley, and land in the hills where you can meet the Samburu people, semi-nomadic communities who will share their centuries-old traditions and stories with you, offering an amazing opportunity for your children to learn about other cultures.

There is so much to see closer to home, so why not embark on a family road trip through the breath-taking landscapes of Colorado and Utah. Together, drive through remarkable scenery and stop in the old mining town of Dunton, nestled in a remote and isolated spot, but where you won’t run out of things to do. Try your hand at archery, adventure through mountains and aspen forests on horseback, and enjoy a thrilling ride through the deserted landscapes in a 4×4 jeep.

As you continue on your road trip, stop at the serene Lake Powell which is transformed into an adventure playground that will certainly thrill the children. Head out onto the water with jet skis, kayaks, and stand up paddle boards for boundless family fun as you admire the scenery around.

Stay onboard a luxury superyacht like SURI or NIRVANA for your Madagascan vacation, which come equipped with a vast range of water tenders and toys that will entertain all the family for hours. Stop to explore deserted beaches and soar over the island by helicopter.

In an exclusive experience, accompany a real life pirate on an epic diving experience together in a submarine, down to underwater wrecks to search for hidden treasure. Along the way you’ll also witness amazing marine wildlife. Kayak through the mangroves together and spend time with local conservation experts, offering the chance to teach your children about protecting the natural world, and taking part yourselves in helping to save one of the world’s rarest turtles.
