April is nearly upon us and the days are getting longer; with that, summer 2022 is fast approaching. This is the perfect time to book your next family holiday together which will help to make up for lost time. Summer 2022 is the perfect time to go on an adventure with your loved ones. So, we have picked six of our Family Travel Expert’s favourite summer adventure holidays to offer you some inspiration.

Portugal – Surf’s Up on the Alentejo Coast

The Alentejo coast is Portugal’s best-kept secret. With stunning scenery that ranges from dramatic, rocky cliffs to expansive sandy beaches, there is plenty of space for an amazing family getaway. This is the ideal location for surfing enthusiasts, with the gorgeous coastline creating the perfect conditions to achieve great surfing waves. It is an area known for its delicious local cuisine and extreme natural beauty, with the Mira, Europe’s cleanest river, running close by. The Alentejo coast offers a great combination of sun and activities that are perfect for a family adventure holiday.

Our Father Christmas holidays are tried and tested by the families of our very own team, so you can be sure that these trips offer you the best of the season’s festivities, with both sophistication and fun so that there is always something for everyone. We’ve compiled this handy guide to help with the festive decision-making so you can choose an unforgettable Father Christmas break.

As the world slowly opens up again, there is much discussion regarding what travel will be like following Covid-19. We know it will be more complex but rest-assured, our Family Travel Experts are continuously monitoring the situation so that they can guide you through your booking and monitor the ever-evolving new rules, so that you don’t need to worry. With their expert knowledge, you can be confident that your travel plans are in safe hands and that you can book knowing your holiday is ATOL protected.

Our wonderful suppliers in Finland are also working incredibly hard to implement new procedures which will provide additional peace of mind for guests and we are delighted that none of our destinations have experienced any significant outbreaks of Covid-19. Indeed, they are currently fully anticipating operating their winter programmes and looking forward to welcoming our guests this coming season.

An Arctic escape to magical Lapland should be at the top of everyone’s list this winter. But with so many incredible winter wonderland experiences that the whole family can enjoy available, it can prove difficult to choose exactly what to do on your own winter break. Read on for our top three Lapland experiences to help you plan your dream Arctic itinerary:

Several weeks into lockdown and we don’t blame you if your lesson planning is starting to feel a little uninspired. So, we thought we would help…at least with a Science lesson (and maybe a dash of Geography, History and Art too!).

Introduce your young explorers to the wonder of the Northern Lights in our Mini Guide to Aurora Hunting.

We know Easter weekend will be a little different for us all this year and although our original plans will have changed, there’s no reason why we can’t make new traditions together as a family! 

Here is some inspiration from family traditions across Scandinavia...

World Book Day celebrates children's stories and the love of reading. Here at Activities Abroad, it is one of our favourite days in the school calendar! Not only is it a chance for parents to share their favourite books with their children and help develop their imaginations but we also believe that there is something magical about picking up a book and transporting yourself to somewhere else in the world with just the turn of a page!

For years, the Algarve has been the destination of choice for UK families visiting the stunning Portuguese coast. However, here at Activities Abroad we think that in order to experience a truly memorable family holiday, you need to visit the locations away from the tourist trail and uncover the hidden gems instead. It’s in these special destinations where you can enjoy authentic and unforgettable experiences that you and your family will cherish for years to come.
