Our Brand-New Toddler and Young Family Holidays

In today's post, we're thrilled to unveil something we've poured our hearts into for quite some time...

Disclaimer: your family holidays will be STRESS-FREE from now on!


Where it all started... The story behind...

Activities Abroad first launched in 2002 and our ethos has always been ‘FAMILY MADE, FAMILY HOLIDAYS’. We are incredibly proud of the exciting destinations, activities, and experiences we offer families looking to share memorable experiences.

As many of our own team have had children and started to plan their first holidays with them, it became a point of conversation how there were no travel companies specialising in holidays for babies, toddlers, and young children and how (despite working in the travel industry) booking our own holidays was, at times, a laborious and frustrating process.

WE DECIDED TO REMEDY THIS by applying our 20 years of experience researching destinations and creating holiday packages with our own personal knowledge of the specialised needs and wants when travelling with young children.


 Why choose to book your family holiday with Activities Abroad? 



Discover our year-round sun destinations designed to create unforgettable experiences for families with young children and toddlers. We are delighted to present Madeira, Cyprus, and Sardinia as our first wave of destinations with more exciting sun-soaked destinations coming your way very soon!

Imagine endless possibilities for your family as you escape to these paradises, where the weather is always on your side. Let your little one's relish in the joy of building sandcastles and bask in a constant supply of Vitamin D throughout the entire year.



We want you to make your journey stress-free from the moment you step out the door. So, we offer free UK airport transfer service* for most of our trips, ensuring a smooth and comfortable start to your family holiday. In-destination Airport transfers are a matter of course.

 *UK Airport Transfers: Return transfers to/from London or Manchester airports (within 50 miles). Regional UK transfer options may be possible, depending upon availability.



We spent a long time brainstorming exactly what it is we look for from hotels when we are considering them for our own family holidays. Of course, each family is different, but we quickly found very similar themes in our wants and needs from our holidays.

We have handpicked hotels in a wide variety of destinations with a family theme running throughout

Family friendly rooming options

Short airport transfers

Direct flights from the UK

Walking distance to a shop to buy essentials (snacks, nappies, sun cream, etc.)

Great facilities on site to keep kids entertained (including kids clubs or babysitting in many locations)

Space for kids to just be kids so everyone can relax

We have also compiled extensive lists of essential equipment (or those who go above and beyond for even more convenience!) but most importantly you know in advance which saves you buying (and then packing) any unnecessary child-related paraphernalia.



However, we've got a few delightful surprises in store for parents as well. Indulge in the culinary artistry of a Michelin-starred featured chef, and relish opportunities for relaxation at luxurious hotels that offer top-tier services, including spa experiences.


Over the coming weeks we’ll reveal more about these exciting destinations, but for now, you can see our first set of holidays released in Cyprus, Madeira & Sardinia at NEW FAMILY HOLIDAYS
