You Better Belize It: A Family Adventure
You Better Belize It: A Family Adventure

When families join Journeys guide-extraordinaire Luis Godoy for this nine-day trip packed with activity, adventure and surprise in magnificent Belize, participants of all ages are always thoroughly delighted. Not only does Luis have complete comfort in the rain forest, encyclopedic knowledge of the orchids and tropical birds and reptiles, and total command of Mayan lore, but he communicates these with an energy, passion and joy rarely matched by guides anywhere. He makes everything fun. The itinerary below was designed as a labor of love by Luis and Journeys specialists Florine Herendeen and Lene Minder. All activities can be adjusted for the skills and interests of the group. First, spend four nights at one of the greenest, most family friendly nature lodges in Cayo District, canoe or tube on the Macal River, explore Barton Cave, ride horseback in the rain forest and climb Maya pyramids at Xunantunich and Tikal. For a striking contrast, transfer to Punta Gorda on the Caribbean coast, far from other tourists. Snorkel the reef, spend the day with a family on their cocoa plantation, and jump into the waterfall pools at Rio Blanco National Park.

Untamed Tasmania
Untamed Tasmania

Experience Tasmania’s pristine wilderness from the mountains to the coast on this active exploration of Australia’s island state. Tasmania is a fascinating destination. Over one third of the landmass is protected in National Parks and Reserves and is listed as a World Heritage Area. There are mysterious rainforests with ancient trees and lush vegetation, as well as many amazing plants and animals that can be found nowhere else on earth. The island’s rich history includes European settlements and prisons, as well as a much older aboriginal history. Relax in the comfort of wonderful accommodations and savour the tastes of traditional bush foods and gourmet meals. With your guide, Craig Williams, Tasmania is more than an experience, it's a way of life. He is a Tassie wildife expert, and his very personalized and customizable tours provide unsurpassed wilderness and wildlife encounters with nature. Read what other travelers had to say: "Craig Williams in Tasmania was outstanding. His knowledge of the area and animals was awe-inspiring. My kids still talk about him and thank God for him in their nightly prayers. What a world he opened to all of us." - Laura Kofoid, Family of 4 "I loved Tasmania - it is one of the best places to visit. We saw so much and had so much fun. I was amazed by the variety and the beauty of the different types of forests, and everything seems to flower - trees, bushes, etc. And the wildlife is incredible - Craig's nighttime quoll patrols are unbeatable. Craig (who is a walking encyclopedia) and his wife Janine are wonderful and are very serious about making sure we enjoyed the trip." - Cathy Deonier This trip combines well with our Australia Great Wild South, Discovery Down Under or New Zealand Deluxe Wilderness Explorer trips.

The Great Wild South
The Great Wild South

Get up close to Australia’s wildlife in its natural environment and see the scenery of eucalyptus tree forests and amazing rock formations for which Australia is famous. Many people find themselves never seeing a kangaroo in the wild in Australia, let alone a koala, kookaburra, dingo, or platypus - but not so with Journeys! You’ll meet the locals (people and animals!) and experience real Aussie culture. We have planned this excursion in the southern areas specifically for Australia’s summer months (winter for us in the northern hemisphere) when weather in the Northern Territory and the tropical coast is extremely hot and rainy - although it’s a perfect trip for any time of year. This trip perfectly compliments our Tasmania Discovery and New Zealand Deluxe Wilderness Explorer. Ask us about combining two or three of these trips!
