Luxury family holidays create memories with your children that will last a lifetime. Likewise, traveling to other parts of the world allows you to share different cultures and perspectives with your family.
Ker & Downey’s top Luxury Family Holidays:
Venture to the Volcanoes
The exploding volcano made for the science fair will look like child’s play next to our exclusive journey to the volcanoes in Costa Rica. Take your children on an exploration of the Arenal and Rio Perdido regions. First, go for a hike along the base of Arenal. Then, try a ride horseback over its slopes before finally taking a sky tram to view it from above. Stay at Hotel Rio Perdido. While there, plan to visit the thermal river and rocky outcrops in the shadow of the Miravalles Volcano. In addition, there’s a full range of activities in the area such as white water tubing, mountain biking, and canyoneering. Alternatively, go for a hike to the Yurro Waterfall and Medicinal Springs, or try volcanic mud body painting.
Give your children a vacation they will never forget! The journey starts at the incredible Giraffe Manor and a visit with its resident herd of Rothschild giraffe. Everyone will enjoy the interaction as the giraffes poke their heads through open windows. Next, the adventure continues in the heart of Big Five country at Ol Pejeta Bush Camp. The Ol Pejeta Conservancy is a sanctuary for black and white rhinos and a number of other endangered species.
Your family safari continues in the Samburu National Reserve for a quiet luxury safari experience, concluding in the famed Masai Mara, one of Africa’s most famous and game-rich areas. Your private bush home accommodations at the Mara House are fully catered and customizable. Hence, allowing your family to set the pace of your last few days in the bush. The guide team at Mara House captivate even the youngest explorer with their intimate knowledge of the area.
Big Sky Country
You don’t have to travel far to have an incredible family holiday. Head to Montana, known for its incredibly vast sky and room to explore. Begin at Lone Mountain Ranch, a symbol of the American West. From there, enjoy cross country skiing, dog sledding, and snowshoeing. Take a horse-drawn sleigh to dinner at the historic North Fork Cabin, a highlight for visitors and locals alike. Spend a day exploring Yellowstone National Park and see the famed Old Faithful geyser erupt into the air.
Continue your journey to Gardiner, Montana. From there you will have full access to Yellowstone National Park. Spend your days searching out the grey wolf, which was reintroduced to the park in 1995. Or rather, go cross country skiing in the park or board a snow coach to see Obsidian Cliff, Roaring Mountain, and the famous Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone River. Make your way to Chico Hot Springs for a relaxing soak in the naturally fed hot spring pools to conclude your winter escape.
