Family Adventures: Connect and Have Fun Together!
Nomad Adventure has been creating adventure experiences for families in Gopeng, Malaysia since 1999. We understand that you want your kids to have fun, put down their smart phones and maybe even learn some great life skills in the outdoors. You also want to be able to enjoy nature, relax and soak in every smile, laugh and special moment. After all, it won’t be long before your kids are all grown up and doing their own thing!
On our family-friendly trips, not only will you be creating authentic and fun memories of a lifetime, as a parent you get to rediscover your adventurous and playful self. You get to be a kid again, the one who comes out to play with your kids when someone else is handling all the details and responsibilities of the trip and doing all the hard work behind the scenes.
Our family activities are suitable for children aged 7+. While half-day trips are available, we encourage families to take at least a full-day trip as this allows children to build confidence and for everyone in the family to be immersed in the experience.
Family Outdoor Water Adventure (Full Day)
Morning: Start with our Popular Practical River Safety Course
In our increasingly urbanized society, many children know how to swim in a pool, but few learn how to keep themselves safe around moving water (which can be found in rivers, canals or in any flood conditions).
Our River Safety Course will teach your family members how to identify hazards, avoid common dangers and practice swimming techniques to make you safer in and around natural bodies of water. Most importantly, it will teach your family members effective rescue skills and give them the know-how to ensure that would-be rescuers do not become victims themselves.
While our River Safety Course addresses important and practical water safety topics, it is delivered in a positive and enjoyable manner so that your family will be sure to have a good time as you learn this important life skill together!
Let’s Go Rafting!
Afternoon: Jump into a Rafting Trip Customized to your Family’s Ages and Levels!
Spend the afternoon rafting on the beautiful Sungai Kampar and have the chance to apply your newly acquired water confidence. There are three levels of white water to gently moving water rafting trips, based on the skills, abilities and ages of participants. These include: white water grade 3, mild water rafting grade 2, and flatwater float trips Grade 1.
