I travelled to Madeira in late September 2016 to see what the archipelago had to offer and I was blown away by the beauty of the landscapes, the variety of the activities and the range of wildlife to see.
Sadly one of Malta and Gozo’s most cherished natural wonders, the Azure Window, collapsed early yesterday morning due to overpowering weather conditions. After giving so many travellers such joy for so many years, it is sad to see it lost to Mother Nature.
Nevertheless, this delightful part of the world offers so many other great experiences for all to enjoy!
As parents ourselves, we can understand that safety when travelling is at the forefront of everyone’s minds and, in an increasingly turbulent world, it is understandable that travellers are eagerly seeking out destinations where issues such as political unrest are less prevalent.
And the winner is…
We love seeing what families get up to on our Activities Abroad holidays. From swimming with dolphins in the Azores to rock climbing on the Maltese island of Gozo, it’s always great to see our families having loads of fun together while experiencing a wide range of unforgettable activities and experiences.
This summer we asked you to share your favourite holiday moments with us to be in with a chance of winning a Go Pro Hero 4 - the ideal piece of kit for recording, and then, recalling, an active family adventure!
We’ve been running activity holidays since 2002 and there have been many, many occasions when parents have commented on how our trips had helped to build their children’s confidence and self-belief. This is something I have seen in my own kids over the years but I’ve never had a pictorial example of just how inspiring our outdoor activities can be. That was until a few weeks ago when the McLean family joined Activities Abroad’s family holiday in The Azores and I went mountain biking with my son.

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…
