family adventure holidays

Rosie Millard on the Longleat Family African Safari

After five days on the Longleat African Safari, my four children can tell the difference between a leopard’s pawprint and a hyena’s. They know what a Carmine Bee-eater looks like. They have found out what sort of animals visit a waterhole at night, thanks to an infra-red camera trap. They also understand that when Charlie the big bull elephant is pawing the ground, flapping his ears and trotting towards us trumpeting, it’s not really very dangerous. Really?

Experience the Volcanoes of Costa Rica

The Arenak Volcano in Costa Rica is one of the country's 50 or more volcanoes. Over the past fifty years the Arenal volcano has been the most active of the country's six active volcanoes. An Adventure Companyholiday in Costa Rica can include time in the Arenal National Park, enjoying thermal springs and heated pools whilst viewing the Arenal volcano. A recent visitor to Costa Rica shared this blog post with us...

Honey, aged 9. Blog on the Around The Bay of Naples

The things I liked about Italy were these.

Firstly, going up Vesvius. This was quite scary because you felt like you could just topple off the edge (but nobody did). It was also quite cold, with lots of clouds around, so I would advise you to bring a jumper or fleece! Pompeii was another Awesome adventure. I never knew the Romans cooked fast food out on the streets in stone pots, for example. It was sad to see people who had died in the volcano, lying down looking just like us.

Feedback Sahara Sands

Wow....

We've just returned from a family holiday to Morocco - Mohamid and Sulimaine we fab hosts and sensitive to our family's needs.  Suiimaine ensured the family were aware of the days adventures/ itinerary - plenty to occupy both adults and children.  During the longer days travelling the children were occupied on the coach and stops were appropriate to our needs coffee and toilets -v- photo opportunities in the snow!  His knowledge and enthusiasm for his country shone through!

Diverse Morocco is the ideal family holiday destination

Selecting a family holiday can be a tricky business if you have children who are still toddling around. As a keen explorer, I had always wanted to visit Morocco in order to scale the picturesque Atlas Mountains but I thought my chances were gone once I started to raise a young family. However, I managed to find a trip that not only gave us the opportunity to head to the fascinating north African country together, but also included a number of child-friendly excursions that would enable us to see various different parts of the nation.

Winter Family Holiday in Andorra, one of Europe's Best Kept Secrets

Tucked away in between France and Spain, the tiny principality of Andorra must surely be one of Europe's best kept secrets. The fact the country doesn't even have its own airport could mean the fascinating skiing destination often flies under the radar of less experienced winter sports enthusiasts. However, for those who have sampled the pistes of numerous different locations around the world, Andorra is a stand-out resort.

Going on a Family adventure? Read Rosie's advice

Travel, they say, does two things. It broadens the mind, and it provides memories. Particularly if you are a bit adventurous about it. My favourite moment in a holiday? Arriving. Stepping out of the plane, coach or boat; feeling the sun ( or rain) on my skin, hearing people talking in a different language. Being on another bit of the earth is just such a treat. “It’s magic!” I say to my children. Even hopping on the Eurostar amazes me. Sharing the magic with your children is of course one of the true delights in being a parent.

My Family Saharan Trip

What I really liked about Morocco were the local people. They were always really friendly to you, even when they were trying to sell you things. They always smiled at you and if you spoke the same language or even something close to it, you could have a really nice conversation with them!  We went to this amazing scarf gallery where all these scarves were hanging down and there were beautiful painted pots and tagines.

Our family adventure in Morocco

They are quite smelly. And their teeth look awfully menacing. When you are aboard one of them, and it stands up, there is a nasty moment,  as if you are on a fairground ride which is about to go terribly wrong. But believe me, riding through the Sahara on a camel is really one of those feelgood moments, even though – like me- you might be well out of your comfort zone while doing it.
