Former television presenter and journalist Eleanor Findlater was looking for a holiday to suit her family's love of nature and adventure. After contacting Activities Abroad we knew there was only one place we could send her and the family - The Azores! We caught up with Eleanor to find out what she and her family thought about these incredible islands and the adventures that they enjoyed:

Whilst looking for a family holiday with his three children he stumbled across the Azores. Here at Activities Abroad we have been celebrating this picturesque archipelago for years so we thought we should catch up with Jake and see what he thought about the stunning islands:

Here at Activities Abroad we believe that there are few things in life more important than spending some quality time with your family! But we are well aware that it is not always easy to pry your kids away from the TV, Xbox or iPhones! However, we think that we may have solved that little headache for you.

This is because in our experience taking part in some exhilarating activities is not only a great way to create some special memories with your kids, you may even discover a new hobby that the whole family can enjoy together! With so many activities available to experience with your families, we have chosen five of our favourites that we think you should be trying this summer!

Without a doubt, one of the most desired holiday requests is an idyllic island holiday featuring days of sun, sea, and sand.  At Activities Abroad however, we see a lot more to islands than just that.  Our Island holidays offer adventures across mountains, through forests, along coastlines and on the sea in some of the most thrilling ways.
