Growing up in Northumberland, Jade was lucky enough to spend a lot of her childhood outside, with some of her fondest memories being out and about in the great outdoors with her family. From a young age, she enjoyed camping holidays and accompanied her parents on a backpacking trip around Europe, and has since been fortunate enough to travel to various countries to experience active family holidays.

Kirsty has always loved travelling, having spent many family trips away as a child. One of her fondest memories was getting her first taste of adventure white water rafting while in France. This sparked a love for exciting activities and led to travels further afield including Canada, USA, Australia and New Zealand.

Here at Activities Abroad, we know travelling is different for every family. That’s why we know there is no ‘perfect holiday’ to suit everyone. However, there are a few tips and tricks we’ve learned during our 16+ years’ experience in family travel that can help you perfectly plan your family holiday.

With the summer holidays often dominated by a family getaway in the sun, and the Christmas break filled with frantic shopping, present giving and vast amounts of food, February half-term is usually far quieter and often forgotten about when it comes to planning a family escape.
