In between juggling busy work schedules, running errands and chauffeuring your children to and from events, it can be difficult to plan your dream family holiday. That’s where we come in. Here at Activities Abroad, we think that the start of a new decade deserves a spectacular welcome, and what better way to celebrate 2020 than with a bucket list family holiday?

At Activities Abroad, we absolutely love to see what you get up to with your family on your adventures away with us. Whether you’re enjoying a husky safari in Swedish Lapland, meeting Father Christmas in Finland, or going in search of the Northern Lights - we want to be a part of the action!

If you’re travelling to Finnish Lapland over Christmas, you’re probably wondering how you might be spending the big day. Excitingly, as the official homeland of Father Christmas, you’ll be in one of the most festive places in the world. What’s more, there are some spectacular Finnish traditions that will help you celebrate just as the locals do. Here, we take a look at some of the biggest and best.

With Christmas just around the corner, we’re turning our attention away from the stresses of present shopping and onto some serious bucket list breaks.

Here at Activities Abroad, we always strive to offer our families the best experiences and though our Family Travel Experts remain proud of our carefully crafted and tried and tested locations, it’s nice to see that other people think the same! That’s why we were thrilled to see that a number of our holiday destinations have been featured on Big 7 Travel’s reader’s poll of the 50 best islands in the world.

Here at Activities Abroad we know that think that witnessing the Northern Lights is a real bucket list item for many families, which is why quite a few of our snow holidays include opportunities to witness Mother Nature’s greatest light show!

However, seeing the elusive Aurora isn’t quite as straight forward as simply jumping on a plane to the Arctic and hoping for the best. As with any natural phenomenon there are a few things to bear in mind if you want to give you and your family the best chance of ticking the magical display off your bucket list. That is why we have put together our five top tips to help you have the best chance of seeing the Northern Lights with your family this winter! Read on to find out more!

It is safe to say that here at Activities Abroad we get very excited about the onset of a new winter season. Not only do the winter months in the Arctic bring with them a host of exciting family activities such as dog sledding and reindeer sleigh rides, they also give our families one of the first opportunities to go in search of the Northern Lights!

Though Father Christmas may call it home, when it comes to experiences in Lapland, the man in red has some fierce competition!
