Travelling with the entire family is such a rewarding experience, especially if you’ve got adventure-loving kids! Our busy lives tend to keep us away from our little ones, even though they are the ones who deserve our time the most. Embarking on a family adventure is the best way to spend some quality time with the entire family. It’s also a fun way to educate your kids and introduce them to once in a lifetime experiences. So here are some of the best holidays to consider for adventure-seeking families out there.
Explore the Jungle in Borneo
If you want to combine education and adventure on your holiday, exploring the jungle of Borneo would be perfect. During our jungle adventure, we stayed at tribal longhouses and experienced the local way of living. Our kids had a great time learning some new skills such as shooting blowpipes and lighting fires, things that they won’t learn back home. But the highlight of our Borneo adventure is our encounter with the mighty orangutans at the Sepilok Orangutan Sanctuary.
An African Safari
In Kruger National Park, we were treated to unforgettable wildlife and cultural experiences during our family safari. We booked for a 4-day South African safari holiday and stayed on a camp in a park, which gave our little ones enough time to explore the outdoors. Over the next three days, we explored the park and had incredible sightings of what they call the “Big Five”, which consist of the leopard, lion, rhinoceros, buffalo, and elephant. We also came across hundreds of antelope, hyena, wild dogs, and so much more!
Kayaking in Canada
Canada is known for its pure natural beauty and the best way to experience its gorgeous views is by going on a kayaking trip. In fact, the country is home to some of the best kayaking destinations on Earth and is dubbed a “paddler’s paradise”. For our kayaking trip, I chose Haida Gwaii, a gorgeous archipelago at the coast of British Colombia. Indeed, kayaking around the gorgeous islands is such an amazing experience! We had a great time paddling along the sea while surrounded by the stunning seascapes.
Discover Amazing Beaches in Sicily
When visiting Sicily with your kids in tow, the best way to spend your holiday is at the beach. Sicily is known for its gorgeous beaches and some really cool beach clubs that cater to families with kids. On our fabulous beach holiday, we decided to book a beautiful Sicilian villa in the town and spent most of our time frolicking at the Cefalu and Taormina beaches, or time relaxing in a hammock with a book. These are some of the best beaches in Sicily that are located just next to a town. Plus, they have excellent facilities and the atmosphere here is very relaxing.
Camping in Sweden
Sweden is a great destination for wild camping. It has vast areas of unspoilt forests that offer easy access to nature. So if you’re looking for a good destination to go camping abroad, you definitely should go to Sweden. There are numerous sites in Sweden that are perfect for camping and we’ve chosen the Skuleskogen National Park, which is one of the most beautiful national parks in the country. Here, you’ll find plenty of designated areas where you can pitch your tent. We spent three nights at the park and had a great time hiking during the day and were treated to the stunning views overlooking the sea.
