As the world slowly opens up again, there is much discussion regarding what travel will be like following Covid-19. We know it will be more complex but rest-assured, our Family Travel Experts are continuously monitoring the situation so that they can guide you through your booking and monitor the ever-evolving new rules, so that you don’t need to worry. With their expert knowledge, you can be confident that your travel plans are in safe hands and that you can book knowing your holiday is ATOL protected.

Our wonderful suppliers in Finland are also working incredibly hard to implement new procedures which will provide additional peace of mind for guests and we are delighted that none of our destinations have experienced any significant outbreaks of Covid-19. Indeed, they are currently fully anticipating operating their winter programmes and looking forward to welcoming our guests this coming season.

An Arctic escape to magical Lapland should be at the top of everyone’s list this winter. But with so many incredible winter wonderland experiences that the whole family can enjoy available, it can prove difficult to choose exactly what to do on your own winter break. Read on for our top three Lapland experiences to help you plan your dream Arctic itinerary:

Several weeks into lockdown and we don’t blame you if your lesson planning is starting to feel a little uninspired. So, we thought we would help…at least with a Science lesson (and maybe a dash of Geography, History and Art too!).

Introduce your young explorers to the wonder of the Northern Lights in our Mini Guide to Aurora Hunting.

We know Easter weekend will be a little different for us all this year and although our original plans will have changed, there’s no reason why we can’t make new traditions together as a family! 

Here is some inspiration from family traditions across Scandinavia...

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.

We could write some exciting and inspirational ‘travel prose’ for you, but instead, let’s mix it up a bit with an A-Z of why we’re absolutely head over heels in love with Borneo.

So, without further ado…

Family holidays are so important so please get in touch and let our Travel Experts use their firsthand experience to help you make the right decision for your family.
