REAL CONNECTIONS

03 – Zipping through the Costa Rican rainforest

is a story they'll tell for years to come

Here's just a sample of the adventures that lie ahead:

Family Fun, every single day

1.

Take your family on a journey that brings history out of the textbooks and places the wonders of the world at their ngertips. Travelling with your children, witnessing how their wanderlust is piqued as the world is opened up before them, is one of life’s most precious gi s.

SADDLE UP FOR A WILD WEST ADVENTURE MONTANA, USA Giddy up and unleash your inner cowboy or cowgirl at 320 Guest Ranch. Head out on horseback with an expert wrangler, get your adrenaline pumping on a whitewater rafting excursion or kick off your boots and relax.

Wild West Cowboys and Buffalos (p.26)

Our Family Highlights have been especially designed by our team of experts to bring the history and culture of the destination you visit to life through a series of exciting experiences. Hands-on, fun packed, with colourful characters, culture and history every member of the family can join the fun, connecting in a way o en impossible with the pressures of everyday life.

2.

BECOME A GLADIATOR ROME, ITALY Move over Spartacus, there’s a new gladiator in town. Travel back to the glory days of Ancient Rome during a training session where you’ll master the art of sword fighting. Then, step into the arena and take on the gladiator himself.

Gladiators, Gondolas and Gold (p.20) 3.

ZIPLINE THROUGH THE JUNGLE ARENAL, COSTA RICA Strap on your harness and helmet and, whoosh, off you go! Come faceto-face with toucans and chattering monkeys as you zipline over Costa Rica’s lush tropical rainforest. Then, head to the beach for some wellearned R&R.

Monkeys, Jungles and Volcanoes (p.30) 4.

01 –  Horseback ride adventures

02 –  Relive the glory days of Rome

01 – Young explorers love getting hands-on

and experiencing life first-hand on local farms Gladiators, Gondolas and Gold (p.20)

Connect With Locals Go behind the scenes and meet the locals that call each destination home. Connect With Locals as you walk in their footsteps, hear their stories and get a glimpse of their daily life in a way few travellers ever will. You’ll see the world through a local lens and gain an appreciation of each destination that will turn your family into true citizens of the world. Back in 2009, we realised that the best way to bring each destination to life is to connect with the local people, our hosts, where they feel most comfortable, in their own homes, using the universal language of food. Thus, our Be My Guest experiences were born.

Our Be My Guest experience with Count Miari Fulcis. What an amazing story to tell: the time you dined with a real-life Count in his Tuscan villa. Watch the children’s eyes light up as they explore the magni cent grounds of Count Miari Fulcis’s 15th-century home. Set amidst 300 hectares of organic olive groves, this fattoria (farm) comes complete with cows and donkeys 01. You might recognise the spectacular view from the terrace from movies like ‘Room with a View’ and ‘Tea with Mussolini’. Don’t let the kids ll up on bread during the olive oil tasting, the Count will be joining you for a delicious Tuscan feast to top off he a ernoon.

02 – Hands-on foodie

experiences for the whole family European Wonderland (p.22)

Dive Into Culture It’s through our senses that we experience the world, and through our senses that we remember… Together, you will smell, taste, touch, see and experience local culture, diving into the fun with all ve senses and opening your eyes to the diversity that makes our world so great.

(KP) Hotel: Radisson Blu Park

ATHENS SIGHTSEEING AND FREE TIME Join a 'Local Specialist' this morning to see where ancient Athenians would pay tribute to their gods and goddesses. Ascending to the Acropolis, we'll visit the sacred Parthenon, before seeing the Temple of Zeus, Hadrian's Arch and Panathinaiko Olympic stadium, where the fi st modern Olympic Games were held. See the Evzone guards and their quirky march at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, before spending the rest of the day exploring the sites with your loved ones. This evening, consider a rousing ramble around the buzzing streets of Athens in search of the perfect souvlaki. (B, )

MANUEL ANTONIO NATIONAL PARK SIGHTSEEING Walking deep into the national park with your guide, you'll check off a ew more creatures on your wildlife list—at last count, there were 109 di erent animals and 184 species of birds living here. Then it's time to hit the beach. Laze in the warm Pacific or choose an optional Mangrove Kayak tour^ or Open Sea Kayak and Snorkel tour^ where you may see various bird species, reptiles, anteaters and white-faced monkeys. This evening, celebrate new friendships over a Farewell Dinner.  (B, FD)

Note: For the more remote areas of Costa Rica (such as Tortuguero), we use the best available hotel facilities with comfortable but simple guestrooms and eco-friendly amenities perfectly suited to the natural surroundings. This journey requires walking on uneven surfaces and steps and sometimes through heavy showers (rain ponchos provided). This journey is best enjoyed by the experienced traveller in good health and who can take such conditions in stride.

ARENAL NATIONAL PARK SIGHTSEEING Start the day with a guided trek around the volcano at Arenal National Park. Then, head to the Arenal Hanging Bridges t o walk eye-level with the lush canopy, observe the monkeys, sloths and chattering birds up close, and look out to see towering Arenal Volcano. Later, relax in the thermal springs or take a swim in the pool back at the hotel. (B, D)
