Having worked at Activites Abroad for almost 9 years I have always dreamt about taking my family to Lapland.  I am very lucky to be able to visit many of the wonderful destinations that we offer as part of my role as Product and Operations Manager and I consider many of our local partners as friends rather than just business associates.

We recently caught up with Laura from our marketing team to find out about her experience meeting reindeer in Finnish Lapland, here's what she had to say:

So, I’m a little bit of an animal lover (ok - major animal lover) and when I heard I was going to Finnish Lapland and getting the chance to meet reindeer, I couldn’t have been more excited!

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 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?

Croatia is the perfect family destination. It’s a country that combines historic towns, a Mediterranean climate, beautiful beaches, magnificent mountains and, of course, amazing activities. What more could you ask for from a destination?

Here are seven photos to inspire you to head to Croatia this summer holiday:

Sadly one of Malta and Gozo’s most cherished natural wonders, the Azure Window, collapsed early yesterday morning due to overpowering weather conditions. After giving so many travellers such joy for so many years, it is sad to see it lost to Mother Nature.

Nevertheless, this delightful part of the world offers so many other great experiences for all to enjoy!

With the festive season creeping up on us, it’s not too early to turn your attention to the February half-term holiday in order to make the most of this precious time with loved ones.

Lapland has so much to offer families who are eager to experience a winter wonderland escape, but sometimes with its vast range of activities it can become the case of having too much choice of fun things to do during your stay. IMG 9819 2

We’ve picked 3 great winter experiences that you must do this year:

I had seen lovely greeting cards portraying what I assumed to be a ‘typical’ Tuscan landscape - rolling fields and horizons lined with Poplar trees - it looked incredible and a visit to see if anywhere could truly be that stunning had long been on my ‘wish list’.

When Activities Abroad first set up a trip to Tuscany I was sent to see if the pictures were accurate and indeed if it was going to work as a destination for our Activities Abroad clients.

I was smitten and we have been selling this little gem in the Tuscan countryside for six years now!

Our host Simone goes out of his way to make you feel welcome and puts all his effort into ensuring you have the most fantastic time whilst in his care. He is such a lovely man and here at Activities Abroad we can’t help but feel we have been very lucky to be able to partner up with him and his excellent team.

The Lake District is one of my absolute favourite places in the world (and not just because I’m a Cumbrian born and bred!).

With stunning lakes and mountains there is always something different to explore and it really is as picturesque as anywhere else I’ve travelled.

A walk around Derwentwater to take in the spectacular views of the fells and the lake is a must. Derwentwater is just a stone’s throw away from the town of Keswick, which has a wide selection of cafes and boutiques to enjoy; a visit to Luchinis ice cream parlour is certainly worthwhile I speak from Lakeland experience!!

There are many different activities to experience in the Lakes from kayaking to climbing but I’ve always found ghyll scrambling most enjoyable.
