This could be your next unforgettable destination

It might seem like an unusual choice, but Antarctica has all of the essential ingredients to make for an unforgettable LGBTQ+ friendly family holiday. The most common way of reaching this isolated (and beautiful) continent is via boat, where you’ll be on the lookout for albatross, prions, petrels, whales and dolphins.

On land, there are plenty of hiking opportunities, with cruises often taking in the South Georgia Islands and the South Shetland Islands – although an Antarctic hike might sound daunting, there are plenty of options that only require a reasonable level of fitness. It’s worth bearing in mind that due to the nature of these types of holidays, they aren’t suitable for all ages and some companies implement a minimum age requirement. Give us a call so we can chat through your options.

Elle Says:

Got a head for science? Some voyages offer citizen science programmes, meaning that as part of your trip, you can make a meaningful contribution to the scientific community.

Destination Rainbow

Destination Rainbow is an independent travel agency specialising in LGBTQ+ family holidays. But we have many strings to our multi-coloured bow. We also love planning romantic escapes for couples and are always happy to hear from friends and allies who need to escape to a sun-kissed beach or finally fulfil that long-awaited adventure.

Our travel agency is run by Elle, an LGBTQ+ mum of 3 who knows how important it is to get a family holiday right. We offer expert advice on how safe a country is and recommend hotels that welcome LGBTQ+ families with open arms. By researching the best resorts, chatting to those who work there and hearing our own guests’ experiences, we are building a collection of favourite retreats where you can be your true selves. They are competitively priced, too.

Our ethos is about personal service, trust and building a lasting relationship, so you know exactly who to call whenever you need a holiday.
