Family Holidays

Our featured holidays have been specially designed with families in mind, but you know what is right for your own family, so with plenty of other travel ideas to choose from we’d be delighted to create an itinerary just for you. All you need to do is give us an idea of your timescale, budget and interests and we’ll do the rest.

“The hotels, car, iPad, restaurants, in fact everything, organised or recommended by you made for a great holiday for all the family. The experience and happy memories will stay with us all for a long time”.
Chris O’Dwyer, Iceland Self-drive

Self-drive holidays offer the greatest flexibility for families – travelling at your own pace, and providing a wealth of activities to choose from along the way as well as incredible scenery to soak up. Wherever you wish to travel and whatever your preferred style of family holiday, contact our team of Travel Specialists to discuss your tailor-made options.

Recommended Family Holidays

Iceland – the adventure playground

Enjoy the long days of summer exploring the great outdoors on a family holiday in Iceland. Discover spectacular natural wonders and stay in guesthouses, self catering cabins and summer cottages. Activities include horse riding, whale watching, river rafting, kayaking, snowmobiling and quad biking. No matter what age you are, watching a geyser erupt 30 foot into the air is a thrilling sight!

Scandinavian Summer

Our collection of multi-activity holidays in Scandinavia let you experience the Nordic summer and truly embrace nature. Camp in the pristine wilderness of Sweden’s Varmland surrounded by lakes and forests and take to the trails by foot or by bike and paddle down the tranquil rivers by canoe. Alternatively, stay in a wilderness lodge in the heart of Finnish Lapland and hike, kayak and search for wildlife under the glow of the midnight sun.

Snow Fun in Lapland

Enjoy some winter fun in Lapland on one of our short breaks. Perhaps more suited to families with teenagers as many activities require a minimum age, stay in a cosy log cabin, be awed by the northern lights and take part in activities galore from snowmobiling to husky sledging, moose safaris to snow shoeing.

Adventures in New Zealand

If you’re looking for a long haul adventure, New Zealand has it all from captivating wildlife to fascinating Maori culture, activities that include swimming with dolphins, whale watching, jet boating, hiking, kayaking, sailing and glacier flights to a range of quality affordable accommodation. Visit during the austral winter to coincide with the long UK summer holidays and enjoy the mild climate with fewer visitors.
