Family Adventures - Bike Trips, Walking Holidays and Sea Kayak Trips
As a family group you may book any Freewheeling Adventure. Once you have reserved we will do our best to attract other families with children of similar ages, or you may choose to keep your trip private.
If young children are the focus, we suggest that you contact us to discuss the suitability of your choice. Young children like to stop and play at every opportunity. Parents and grandparents like to watch and participate with varying degrees of patience. We recognize these mixed needs and adapt with sensitivity. We adjust so that the youngest or oldest set the pace, and you should be aware that faster explorers may have some waiting time.
There are discounts available when three people share a room. If a third participant 12 years old or younger shares a room with two other full-paying guests, they receive a 20% adventure discount. This becomes a 50% discount if the third participant is 4 years old or younger. We avoid the use of temporary beds for adults but if you can accept one for your children, it can open up good sharing possibilities and cost savings.
Children's bikes, trailer-bikes, and trailers, when rented in association with a tour or other adult bicycle rentals, receive a 25% discount. Burley d'Lite trailers, with a total weight of 17lbs, and a towing capacity of 100lbs, are available for those who are yet too young to pedal. They are suitable for one or two children and have storage pockets, rain covers and sunscreens. Please reserve these well in advance to be certain of their availability. Trailer bikes attach to the back of any adult bike to turn into tandems suitable for children up to 4' tall. The children can assist you by pedaling or can simply freewheel as you do all the work while they focus their attention on the passing sights and your conversation. Tandem bikes are also available in some locations.
