The holiday season is one which brings glorious weather, ice cream vans and plenty of adventure. Whether you plan on spending your holiday sunning it up on a foreign beach or hiking in the countryside, there are plenty of amazing ways to spend the summer with your family and explore the world at your fingertips. Today we are going to take a look of some of the different types of trip you can make with your family this year!
Camping isn't just for festival goers and mountaineers; it is also a great option for families who want a cheap getaway and aren't afraid to muck it out for a few days. Although you won't be gifted the same luxuries as when you are at a hotel or in a cottage, you can still have a great family holiday in the wild. Try making s'mores by the fire, telling ghost stories and cooking on the open flames. It's an adventure, and it will be a lot of fun!
There are tonnes of gorgeous family resorts around the world, and you can almost have a whole world at your fingertips. You'll be provided with accommodation, entertainment, shows, restaurants and even shops to buy your essentials. It's like being inside a small bubble away from the real world, and it can be incredibly relaxing.
There are also places which offer experiences for the more adventurous among you. Places which offer tree climbing, zip wires, go karting, paint balling and loads more. It might not be the right choice if you are looking to unwind, but it is a great experience nonetheless.
There's not much better than a retreat in a nice hotel, with food all catered for and a tropical location to enjoy. The kids can play in the pool or at the beach, while you sit back, relax and sunbathe on a lounger. It's the ultimate way to relax and reset your mind after a stressful year.
Close To Home
You don't have to travel halfway across the world to have a great holiday, in fact, many people are now choosing to stay at home rather than pack up and leave during the summer. You can travel locally or wake up early and drive a little further afield, take a picnic and enjoy what your own country has to offer. It's a great way to save money on flights and accommodation as well as appreciate your home soil.
These are not for everyone, and of course if you don't know how to ski you may have to pay for ski lessons prior to traveling. The Alps is the most popular destination for skiers and offers great accommodation and ski courses to really put you through your paces, it may not be a tropical beach getaway, but it is a new and exciting experience to try and to enjoy for yourself.
The kids may be scared to try it but it will surely be a fun experience for you. You need not to be an expert to try this, in fact you could learn how to surf on the spot. There are some resorts who offer surfing lesson. You should try it for yourself!
