  • We had the most amazing adventure

    by Sandra Hilton
    27 August 2013

    We have just come back from a week in Keswick where we had the most amazing adventure, ghyll scrambling, experiencing the Via Ferrata at Honister mine, canoeing and much more. The team at Glaramara took us out each day and made sure that we had a fun and exciting time. It was also great sharing the experience with other families. We will definitely be going back and would highly recommend it as a

  • The best holiday I have had for a long time

    A review of Malta - Gozo Island Adventure by Sara Warr
    23 August 2013

    I thought the email documentation was very thorough. I would have liked some information on which hotel we were staying at proportion to booking. Generally the admin was excellent. The hotel room offered lots of space for our family and it was a very pretty hotel. Gozo Adventures were outstanding. Cornil organised all our activities extremely well including transport to and from. He has a very

    good team.The Lazy day boat trip and snorkelling was an excellent introduction. We very much enjoyed all the activities made special by the Gozo Adventures team, in particular, Mark who was great with our boys. The final Eco day was a real treat and we felt we had some insight into Gozo that most other tourists would not get.It was a shame we were the only family booked on the holiday for the week we went as we were hoping to have some company for our teens. However, all the instructors and activity staff made us feel very special and gave us an individual experience.A fantastic week. The best holiday I have had for a long time.

  • I would recommend this holiday

    A review of Malta - Gozo Island Adventure by Vaughan Redfern
    23 August 2013

    This was a really good holiday. Having the additional first week at the hotel helped us to acclimatise and relax prior to the activities in the second week. The Cornucopia was great and the farmhouse was ideal for us. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The activities were at the right level and were well organised and well run and Cornil was an excellent rep, ensuring that everyone's needs

  • We had a fabulous holiday

    A review of Spain - Pyrenean Family Adventure by Adrienne Dixon
    22 August 2013

    We had a fabulous holiday. RocRoi are a really smooth run activities provider and we had such fun on the river, highlight was kayaking down white water mid lighting storm, very spectacular. Hiking was beautiful and picnic delicious. Mountain biking scenery was breath-taking. We met some lovely people and the kids all got on brilliantly, becoming rather pack-like ....almost feral. Mattias and

    Thomas our reps were very friendly, welcoming and helpful. Thomas on the other hand was a real pro. We all felt totally confident with him at the helm. We will definitely be back for one more Activities Abroad holiday at least before Madgy refuses to come on holiday with her mother at all. Thanks very much for another great holiday.

  • The activities were exciting and thrilling

    A review of Spain - Pyrenean Family Adventure by Simon Wilkins
    10 August 2013

    This was our second visit to Sort on the Catalan Pyrenees activity holiday. Having thoroughly enjoyed the holiday last year we returned with another family this August, and weren't disappointed. Sort is a lovely place to stay - it is a fairly quiet, small town right next to the river Noguera Pallaresa, where all the water-based activities take place.The Hotel Pey is family-run hotel and is a great

    place to stay. The staff are extremely friendly and the hotel is kept spotlessly clean. It has a big pool and loads of room to relax around it and is located right in the centre of the town, near Sort's restaurants and shops.We were in a group of approximately 30 people (a good mix of adults, teenagers and children). Our holiday representative, Isidro (a qualified mountain guide), looked after the group in a very professional, friendly and able manner. He made sure everybody knew what they'd need for the next day's activity and was superb at handling the logistics of managing a large group of people. In addition to the activities, he was on hand to advise on local restaurants and to answer a variety of other questions. Isidro had an in-depth knowledge of the area (he grew up in the region) and was enthusiastic about the activities and had a real pride in the area.Although our family were only taking part in three of the activities on this occasion, we thoroughly enjoyed those that we did. We spent a fantastic day white water rafting (which was both exciting and had stunning and interesting scenery to boot). Our instructor was both friendly and extremely skilled and his obvious enthusiasm for the activity and pride in the area made the day even more special. Likewise, the canyoning instructors looked after us extremely well and, while ensuring our safety was paramount, had a good sense of humour and were enthusiastic about their speciality. The trek in the Aiguestortes National Park on the first day introduced us to the absolutely jaw-dropping scenery of the high Pyrenees, and was a great ice-breaker for the group.Food-wise, there was a good variety of restaurants to choose from, including a pizzeria, a lovely tapas bar (called Cafe Pessett - very interesting and delicious food) and a restaurant serving hearty Catalan mountain fare. The holiday rep can advise on the different optionsWhen no activities were taking place there are plenty of other things to do - I walked up to a village called Pujalt, about an hour or so up a steep path, where there are fantastic views down to Sort and up towards the high Pyrenees, with plenty of flowers and butterflies to see along the way. My girlfriend rented a bike and cycled on some of the quiet roads around Sort. Other options were to swim or simply to relax with a coffee or a drink by the pool.All-in-all, both our families had a fantastic time. The activities were exciting and thrilling, the location and hotel perfect for the type of holiday and the local rep both friendly and professional. I should also add that Activities Abroad were very helpful and booking with them was very straight forward. I feel sure that we will travel with them again - and may even go back to Sort for a third visit!
