Here we bring you five great active holidays for families.
Cycling the Danube: This flat, and often downhill, route along a dedicated cycle path is the perfect way for families to enjoy cycling together. There are lots of stop off points along the way to keep little ones happy and because your luggage is transferred for you between comfortable accommodations you only need to worry about your own pedalling and the lovely views all around you.
Go paddling: Canoeing and kayaking are simple to learn and offer an up-close-and-personal way to see the landscape. The west coast of Scotland, Croatia and Sardinia are three fabulous places to set off for a family paddling adventure. One trip, offered by Wilderness Scotland, is a family-friendly holiday in Arisaig in Scotland’s Highlands. You’ll learn to kayak on the three-day trip and likely witness a wealth of amazing wildlife.
Family beach adventure: Head off to Portugal for a tailormade family adventure holiday with Aqua-Ventura. Sunshine and adventure are the key words for this trip that includes a host of exciting water-based activities, including sea kayaking, diving, a boat trip to see dolphins and climbing. And at the end of each day, you can refuel on home-cooked food (and plenty of it!).
Cycle France’s colourful coast: Family groups will relish the warm weather and colourful scenery on this seven-day Brittany: Cycling the Granite Coast trip. You’ll pedal past pink granite rocks sculpted by the wind and tides, pristine white sandy beaches and a turquoise sea. Ah, we can smell the sea from here…
