How Can We Help?

How old do you have to be to travel on a trip? Is there an age limit?

← All Topics

Our trips are open to all travelers 18 years and older and families with kids as young as 5 years old.  There are no maximum age as long as you are comfortable with the activity level on a trip. Contact a Travel Specialist for details about the specific trip you’re interested in if you have concerns.

Below are the recommended minimum ages for children on each of our trips. Please let a Travel Specialist know if you would like to book a trip with a child younger than these recommended ages so we can ensure we have everything needed for a successful trip.
