Magical Morocco

Written by

From the moment I landed in Essaouira and stepped off the plane into the warming sun of Morocco, I knew this was going to be a fantastic trip.

A short transfer away, we arrived at Rebali Riads, our home for the next two nights; and what a home it was. The peaceful, luscious gardens are filled with colourful flowers, which drape from the riads and down to the refreshing swimming pool below… a place I spent much of my time in!

We love Finland here at Activities Abroad and we can’t wait to celebrate 100 years of independence with them - but what makes this amazing country one of our favourite places to go on holiday?

Here are five reasons we think you should make Finnish Lapland your next family getaway:

I started my Moroccan journey in Essaouira, which means "little picture" in the Arabic language, and it certainly lives up to its name! With high sea walls and charming alleyways, it is a delight to explore.

Active family holidays are a fantastic way to get some quality time with kids – including hard-to-please teens! - while enjoying a favourite pastime or discovering a new hobby, whether it’s cross-country skiing, a husky safari, cycling, surfing or all manner of other outdoor pursuits.

If your family is anything like ours, then Blue Planet II has been the ultimate Sunday night TV making everyone want to get up off the sofa and explore the world! With that in mind, here are four holidays that will make you feel like you're in an episode of Blue Planet:

I caught up with Laura from our Marketing Team to chat about her experience of whale watching in Madeira. Here is what she had to say:

Madeira is an island well-known for the wine that bears its name and its astounding botanical wonders, but something that not everyone knows about Madeira is that the waters surrounding the island are literally bursting with marine life!

We know it’s hard to make a decision about where to go on your winter family holiday, so why not take some expert advice?

Carol from our Admin Team experienced Keswick this summer. Here is what she had to say:

'There’s nothing better than travelling to the Lake District in summer with the family, there’s so much on offer!

After my helmet was fitted, I beamed around at the others in the group before heading outside to cool down whilst I waited for the rest of the group to have their helmets fitted too.

Once we were all outside our guide Laura called to get our attention and introduced herself and the other guide before taking us over to a row of large red and black snowmobiles. We all listened attentively whilst she showed us the controls and the hand signals we would use on the safari. Once we were all confident and found our snowmobiles we set off in single file, moving through the snowy landscape.

We know! You’re probably thinking ‘isn’t it a bit too soon for Christmas talk? It’s only August’

Well yes; it probably is. But when it comes to winter holidays, we find the earlier the better. Here at Activities Abroad we get booked up early, so it’s time to start talking snow!
