Are you sick and tired of spending your annual family vacation in Spain where every bar plays reruns of Only Fools and Horses all day long? You’re not the only one. Experts predict that thousands of families will think outside of the box this year and travel to somewhere a little different. Opting to take an adventure holiday might be a little more expensive, but it is guaranteed to present you with lots of awesome new experiences. If you have children, your time away this year could create memories that last a lifetime. At the end of the day, the last thing you want to do is waste your money on a trip to the same old locations.
The best thing about planning an adventure holiday? It’s much simpler than it used to be. These days, there are so many apps available for your smartphone that it is easy to make all your arrangements from a mobile device.
There are so many different options open to you when planning a safari that you can’t pass on the opportunity. While most people decide to travel to countries like Kenya, there are lots of other places you can try. We saw an excellent review a few days ago from a family that booked an India tiger safari. It all comes down to which places you’d like to visit, and which animals you’d like to encounter. Children love getting up close and personal with some of the biggest beasts on earth. Going on safari will let them do that without risking injury.
You’re going to need a lot of stamina to handle a jungle trek, but some people find it to be the best experience of their life. You could travel to somewhere like the Democratic Republic of Congo, but that can be a little too dangerous if you have children in your party. With that in mind, we always recommend that people visit Peru. Organizing a trek through the Amazon rainforest is simple, and incredibly enjoyable. You could even follow the Inca Trail and witness the awesomeness of Machu Picchu. Just be warned that it takes around eight days to reach that mountain paradise on foot. Most people trek half way and then arrange a helicopter ride. However, the decision is down to you.
Presuming you don’t mind freezing temperatures, you could have a very enjoyable experience in the Arctic. Most people steer clear of that area because most of it is inhabited. However, therein lies its beauty. If you want to visit a place that hasn’t been ravaged by humans, there is no better location on earth. Your best bet is to book a cruise that visits the Arctic. There are plenty of them around, and you might be surprised at the price. Just don’t forget to take your camera as you’re sure to see some amazing sights.
We hope you have gained some inspiration from our suggestions, and that you will consider something a little different this year. No matter what size your family might be, the perfect holiday is just waiting to be discovered.
