3 adventure-filled holidays your family will love
Nothing brings families together like exploring somewhere new and creating lasting memories you’ll all laugh about around the dinner table for years to come.
Kids grow up fast these days and making the most of those shared moments is key. So, with that in mind, here are three incredible places you can all enjoy that offer something a little different to your typical European holiday.
Did you know, Borneo is home to half of all known plant and animal species in the world? Meaning there’s nowhere better to see a huge array of wildlife. Be sure to hop aboard a Kinabatangan River cruise where the kids will love spotting the local jungle inhabitants like macaques, crocodiles, pygmy elephants and orangutans!
Other highlights include the historic temples and harbourside market of Sandakan, the caves of Sarawak and the beaches of Lankayan where green turtles come to lay their eggs all year round.
If your tribe are always up for a challenge, how about tackling the four-day hike to Machu Picchu together? Trek passed early Incan settlements, reach the dizzying heights of Dead Woman’s Pass and camp high in the clouds surrounded by the stunning Andean mountain range.
After successfully completing the trail, remember to make a pitstop at Aguas Calientes, which is home to soothing hot springs and a great selection of delicious restaurants. The nearby city of Cusco, with its traditional craft markets and fascinating museums is also a must-visit!
Immerse your family in the buzz of Marrakech’s world-famous souks and let the kids test out their bargaining skills as they barter for a pair of traditional slippers or a carved wooden camel. Before reviving yourselves with a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice in the Djemaa el-Fna main square.
Venturing into the Atlas Mountains to explore Berber villages, taking a trip to the pretty pirate port town of Essaouira and getting involved in a hands-on bread baking class all help make this trip great fun too!
