NEW YORK — Intrepid Travel has launched a brand new Family Cycling tour range designed specifically for families with teenagers.
Departing in March 2020, the trips will visit three of Intrepid’s most popular destinations – Morocco, Thailand and Vietnam – and were partly inspired by the recent youth-led climate strikes that took place around the world last month.
Each 10-day Teenage Family Cycling tour was developed by Intrepid’s expert Cycling and Family product managers, and was designed to help family members aged 10 and above to disconnect from their devices and reconnect with each other.
“With the recent climate strikes and the youth-led climate movement made famous by Swedish teen activist Greta Thunberg, we are seeing how the younger generation is more environmentally- and socially-conscious than any other,” said Dyan McKie, Family Product Manager for Intrepid Travel. “The want to make more informed and responsible choices, including in the ways they travel.”
Noting that cycling has a low carbon footprint, McKie added: “These tours allow families to see a destination through a different lens during active adventures powered by the travellers themselves. We’re excited to provide options for environmentally-conscious youth to travel ina low-impact and healthy way.”
The new tours are as follows:
• Morocco Family Cycling Holiday: Priced from $1,615 per person, this tour takes families around the countryside of Morocco, from Casablanca through Tangier, to the blue city of Chefchaouen, Fes and into Marrakech. They’ll bike for up to 21 miles per day on varied terrain, traversing through colourful towns and along the Mediterranean coastline.
• Thailand Family Cycling Holiday: While on this adventure, which starts at $1,905 per person, families will cycle through jungles, city canals and small villages, starting in Bangkok before making their way through Southern Thailand.
