Having watched Dame Judi Dench embark on her wonderful adventure to Borneo, we’ve been having some serious wanderlust thoughts about travelling in her footsteps!

Is the temptation of once-in-a-lifetime wildlife experiences, silky sands and glistening seas making you think about a long-haul holiday for your family? With so many fantastic places to explore, it can be difficult to decide exactly where to go. Take a look below to find out where is best for your family!

Anyone who has ever been on a holiday with children will know that there is only so much exploring of historical sites, visiting museums or trudging through markets that your children (and you) can take on a summer escape. When the tiredness from all this exploring hits there is only one thing left to do – head underwater!

While scuba diving offers the most freedom to explore the many spectacular oceans and seas that you will encounter on your travels, snorkelling is great for two simple reasons. Firstly, it is easy enough for most children to pick up relatively quickly. Secondly, it is a much cheaper and easier way to explore as there are no lessons or qualifications to worry about.

With so many amazing places to snorkel around the world, we have compiled a list of our eight favourite places for you to explore with your children.

Sitting here in the office on a cold, wet Wednesday our minds at Activities Abroad are wandering to destinations we would rather be discovering. Maybe we are biased, but Borneo is one of the best long-haul vacations you could ever go on, period.
