    A review of The Azores – Lava Lands and Swimming with Dolphins by Dr Rogerson and Family
    08 October 2022

    There were too many lovely moments for any of them to be the most memorable. We really loved our tour leader Eulalia, who stood out and made a real difference to us having a great family holiday. The service was brilliant and the family travel experts were knowledgeable and helpful, and we had all of the pre-travel documents that we needed.  We were on a one-family tour which worked best for

  • We loved Sailing on the Catamaran

    A review of Croatia - An Island Adventure by The Horrocks Family
    07 October 2022

    The most memorable part of the holiday for us has to be Sailing on the Catamaran. The service was brilliant. Our favourite activity was Swimming from the catamaran in secluded bays. Body surfing in proper waves on a stormy day - better than Cornwall! Maja, Stephano, Iggie made a huge difference to our holiday. Huck Finn staff were all great and made sure that we all had a good time,

  • Great last-minute info on the changing Covid requirements

    A review of Nellim New Year Aurora Adventure by The Dye Family
    31 December 2021

    It was a really tough call to pick the most memorable part of the holiday (we were discussing it daily!), every experience was great - up until the last day when we did huskies! That just topped off the week; the dogs going crazy, then the silence of gliding through the trees across the snow, and then meeting and cuddling the dogs! Great last-minute info on the changing Covid requirements,

    really helpful and reassuring, thank you! Travel documents all clear and comprehensive too. The packing and clothing info was really helpful. Diogo (hotel restaurant) was amazing; friendly, efficient, and happy to make sure we had a great time. Also, Pim (guide), who was clearly very happy to share his knowledge and skills. We saw the Northern Lights. The travel experts were great. They responded quickly advising better choice of holidays for our family and added first-hand knowledge of the proposed destinations.

  • We loved every moment!

    A review of Christmas in a Jeris Winter Cottage by The Airs Family
    24 December 2021

    We loved every moment; such an amazing holiday, too many memories but the huskies and meeting Father Christmas were the highlight of our trip. Our guide was excellent, she really made our holiday. She was very knowledgeable and friendly and the restaurant staff were also brilliant in the hotel.

  • We were treated to an amazing northern lights display right above the hotel

    A review of Christmas in a Jeris Winter Cottage by The Mullany Family
    23 December 2021

    Every day was fun-filled but 2 of the most memorable experiences were the husky safari and meeting the reindeer herder. December 24th (Christmas Day) was perfect, a family cross country ski on the lake, followed by a traditional Christmas lunch, festive cooking making and dinner in the Lappish hut cooked on a roaring fire.  To top it off, we were treated to an amazing Northern Lights display

    right above the hotel around midnight. All of the guides and staff were great, they all helped to make it an amazing family holiday. Graham was great, answered loads of questions re vaccine certificates and entry requirements and gave us recommendations for our city break in Helsinki. We loved the seclusion of the resort and really felt like we experienced the authentic Lapland.

  • We had an amazing time and made so many memories

    A review of Nellim New Year Aurora Adventure by The Wise Family
    21 December 2021

    We had an amazing time and made so many memories. Our most memorable part of the holiday was seeing the Northern Lights on Christmas Eve - magical! The husky sledging was our favourite activity. We also really enjoyed the wilderness walks as the guides were fantastic. The travel experts offered lots of options and explained all of the ever-changing testing requirements too.

  • Absolutely amazing experience

    A review of A Magical Search for Father Christmas by The Meredith Family
    16 December 2021

    Meeting Santa was an absolutely amazing experience. To get so much time there and meet Mrs Claus was incredible. We also hugely enjoyed husky sledding. Overall this was probably one of the best holidays we’ve ever been on. Considering it was only 4 days, the trip was absolutely fantastic and we did not want to leave. We said it would be a once in a lifetime experience but would certainly

    consider going back although probably for a slightly different trip since you can’t do Santa twice! We would definitely travel with Activities Abroad again and thank everyone for all of their help in organising such a special unforgettable trip.

    We loved all of the activities but especially the ghyll scrambling. It was doable, exciting and safe for all ages and levels of ability. Not one of the activities was least enjoyable. They were all fantastic. Very well organised and perfectly tailored to our group. It was perfect in every way and surpassed all our expectations.
