Explore together.

On a Stanford Family Adventure, Stanford alumni and their loved ones go on a journey to immerse in new countries and cultures with hands-on activities, faculty lectures and more unique learning opportunities that define Stanford travel.

Why Stanford?

From tailor-made itineraries to special access at must-see landmarks, Stanford Family Adventures offers an experience unlike any other family vacation. Each trip features a Young Explorer program, a team of Young Explorer leaders, and lectures from Stanford faculty and scholars to bring each destination to life. Plus, our professional tour manager joins you every step of the way to make your family trip a breeze.

Young Explorer program

Kids of all ages love our Young Explorer program, where they’re grouped with travelers their own age for engaging discussions and creative games. While you spend most of the trip together as a family, there are occasional kids-only adventures to allow the adults time for more in-depth touring and discussions.

Young Explorer leaders

Our savvy Young Explorer leaders (at least one for every 10 kids) are all razor-sharp Stanford grads who are former Stanford Sierra Camp staff. They captivate the children with hands-on educational activities while the adults attend lectures, and they’re pros at understanding and adapting to the personalities and interests of each young explorer.
