Family Travel

Modern family lives are often stressful and we feel disconnected. Family travel provides an opportunity to reunite by eating meals together, sight-seeing and having fun. This brings families closer physically, mentally, and emotionally. Travel also teaches children the importance of making memories and enjoying experiences, rather than wanting possessions. You can enjoy your kids again with family travel!

Studio Ghibli Museum Japan
Kyoto Japan

Japan is a dramatic tapestry of cultural and natural heritage woven from its pink cherry blossoms, snowy mountain peaks, meticulous ceremonies, and striking pagodas that crisscross the highly volcanic archipelago nation of nearly 7,000 islands. Over 60% of Japan is covered in mountains, with nine forest ecoregions ranging from subtropical to temperate, and its famous “Snow Monkeys” – the Japanese Macaque – are the northern-most non-human primate. The country’s varied climates and terrains lend themselves to world-class skiing, surfing, hiking, and soaking in an extensive network of traditional onsen – natural hot springs. Known globally for its hypermodern cities, a high-speed shinkansen bullet train connecting the country, and a renowned national cuisine, Japan is an inspiring study in contrasts between ancient and modern. Contact Runway Travel for pricing and availability and read our recommended 9-day Japan itinerary.

European Family Travel


Kids probably think that a European vacation is looking at castle after castle and a million churches. But that doesn’t have to be the case.

If baking is more your interest, a Portuguese pastry chef will teach you how to make pasties de nata, a national delicacy.
