5 Ideas for an Adventurous Family Holiday

Planning a vacation with the family can be overwhelming because of the abundance of the destinations that can be taken into consideration. Forget about the theme parks! Learn from our suggestions and take your family for an adventure that will forever be remembered.

Explore Nature and History in Peru

If you are traveling with older children who are active and into physical activities, hiking the Incan trail will definitely be a good idea. At the end of the trail, you will see Machu Picchu, one of the most fascinating wonders of the world. The Peruvian Amazon will also be worth seeing, which will provide you with an up close and personal encounter with howler monkeys and macans, among others. Throughout the country, there are also exciting activities for families, including zip-lining and kayaking.

See The Northern Lights

Also known as Aurora Borealis, this is a magical natural phenomenon that turns the sky into a dazzling light show. One of the best places to see it would be in Kakslauttanen Resort in Finland.  You can stay in a glass-domed igloo as you revel in the beauty of the colourful night sky. Other places that you can visit include Svalbard in Norway, Reykjavik in Iceland, and Scotland in United Kingdom. Click here for more information.

Underwater Adventure in the Galapagos

In 2007, UNESCO classified the Galapagos as one of the most endangered places in the world, which is why you should visit as soon as you can. The whole family will surely be in for an adventure. Kayaking and swimming with white-tipped reef sharks are just some of the thrilling activities that can be tried.
