There’s nothing I love more than family holidays; the chance to visit exotic regions and discover new cultures alongside my favourite people in the whole world! It turns out I’m not alone; according to the Family Holiday Association “49% of British people said their happiest memory is being on holiday with their family”.
However, when I think back to my favourite family holidays, I’ve found that my most memorable and enriching vacations were those which strayed from the typical tourist path. By planning vacations to unusual destinations that haven’t been deemed as conventionally ‘family friendly’, I’ve been able to experience uniquely exciting activities with my loved ones, taste a diverse array of local delicacies and explore new interests; many of which we never even knew existed before departing.
I think that families of all shapes and sizes can benefit from international travel. By visiting unusual regions and participating in unique excursions as a family, you can broaden your children’s cultural horizons, create cherished memories that will last a lifetime, and instil within your children a sense of pride in their achievements. To help those who are interested in showing your family the world , here are some of my favourite types of adventurous family holidays that you might wish to try for yourselves.
