We’ve put together some of our top tips for enjoying a Patagonian family vacation. With hiking and wildlife galore, parents and kids can enjoy animal spotting and nature trails at the world’s end on a unique & active trip. No kids’ club or babysitters, just a week of shared experiences and quality time outdoors together ‘en familia’. Where better than Patagonia to experience the fresh outdoors as a family and enjoy a safe, wildlife packed adventure in harmony with nature (and hopefully each other)?
1. Choose a Highlight-packed Location
Patagonia is a vast place (roughly the size of France and Spain together) and choosing the right destination is important. Going somewhere with many highlights in the same place reduces the possibility of kids getting bored on long journeys between destinations - bear in mind you’ve already travelled to the end of the world and travel harmony between family members may be wearing a bit thin!
2. Leave Room for Adaptations
It’s a known fact that when travelling with kids not everything goes to plan all the time. It’s probably best not to commit to a watertight schedule where everything is planned hour by hour and can’t be adapted. Instead go for a program which has a clear outline but day to day activities are more flexible, fitting the mood of your family that day and providing alternative options.
3. Know What to Bring
4. Go for Family Friendly Accommodation
5. Combine Adventure with Learning
