Intrepid has launched four new family retreats for parents, children, and teens wishing to spend time exploring the world together.
Despite travel uncertainty, Intrepid Travel has seen unprecedented demand for its family tours over the last several months, prompting the company to create new retreat-style tours geared towards quality family adventure time.
“After months spent indoors away from friends and classmates, we’ve seen families are eager to get out and explore the world once it is safe to do so, and have a desire to reconnect with both nature and like-minded people,”
Dyan Mckie, Intrepid’s family product manager.
The four new Family Retreats, based in Morocco, Turkey and England, will have groups immerse themselves in one location in handpicked accommodation with nearby experiences.
This new tour style celebrates ‘slow travel’ and allows adventurers to engage with the surrounding communities away from the crowds and in a more controlled setting.
Each itinerary has been designed to benefit local communities affected by the pandemic, while also providing enriching activities for children and parents who have spent the majority of 2020 indoors due to the pandemic.
This tour has families reconnecting with the natural beauty of the world with a retreat that celebrates nature, wildlife, and local cuisine. In addition to visiting a turtle rehabilitation center, you’ll also enjoy the clear, blue waters of the Mediterranean and an easy hike through the stunning mountainous terrain between Kayakoy to Oludeniz Beach.
You can also learn some new family favorites in a traditional meze cooking class with locally foraged produce. Yummy!
