Guide to family vacations with teenagers
If you are assuming that teenagers don’t want to vacation with the adults in their lives anymore, you may be missing out on some incredible opportunities. Family vacations with teenagers tend to be fairly active with an aim of escaping studies, screens and school stress by sea kayaking, white water rafting, mountain biking or even on safari. And given that those days of unfit 40- or 50-something, couch potato parents are over, vacations are now catering for families who want to keep jumping into life, in new and exciting places, together.
I had always wanted to go to India in my twenties but a baby came along and life took on a different journey. Now my babies are teenagers, we decided to all live the dream together
At Responsible Travel we are very proud of the vacation suppliers we represent who understand the difference between toddler and teen family vacations. Who get that food must be plenty, early starts are torture, too much time with parents is uncool and hanging out with other teenagers in a group can transform a vacation from frolics and fun to ‘friends for life’ experiences.
