Sometimes you want a holiday, but you just can’t be doing with the hassle of organising your flights, accommodation, activities, and everything else, all by yourself. You might be busy, or you might be lazy. Either way, you just to get away for a while and only have to click a few buttons to make that happen. This is where the package holiday fits in nicely. It’s all organised for you; simply press a few buttons, pay the fee, and you’re all set. It’s like a school trip, except more fun and no teachers (unless of course, you’re a teacher. Then there will be one). So check out the ideas below, you won’t be disappointed.
If you like wrapping up warm and going on adventures, then settling down for hot chocolate by the fire in the evenings, this could be your perfect getaway. There are so many activities to choose from; you could stay up late in the hope of seeing the Northern Lights, you could spend a day going sledging with some adorable huskies, or if you’re a bit of a speed demon you could jump on a snowmobile. If you’re travelling in December, then the tour operators for lapland holidays will do an excellent job of making it a magical experience for you and your family. Taking a sleigh ride with the reindeer and then meeting Father Christmas is sure to be an experience you will never forget.
The Canary Islands
If a warmer climate is what you fancy, then one of the Canary Islands might be your dream destination. With 5 star hotels right on the beach, and all the exhilarating activities on offer like banana boating, parasailing and deep sea diving on each island, your itinerary will be overflowing no matter which one you decide to travel to. Lanzarote offers volcano trips, and a predator packed zoo, Fuerteventura offers an evening Catamaran trip to see the glorious sunset, Tenerife, the most popular out of all the islands, has the Siam Park water park and Gran Canaria offers a ride along the beach on camelback. So whichever island you decide to go with, you’ll be sure to make memories to last a lifetime, and be jetting off to a different one the following year! Just remember to take a few waterproof accessories with you, so you can enjoy your trip without worrying about your valuables.
Maybe you’re more of a city break kind of person? In which case, as an understated city of Europe, Berlin has a lot to offer. It is packed full of history and culture, with something to keep everyone happy. The history buffs in your family can take a trip to the Topography of Terror to enhance their knowledge on World War 2 era Berlin, or go and see the last standing piece of the Berlin Wall, which fell in 1989. Or the arts are more your cup of tea, take an evening trip to soak up a bit of classic culture at the Berlin Philharmonic, or head over to see the world-famous Berliner Ensemble perform their latest play. It really is a fantastic city, and with so much to do you may end up making multiple trips just to see everything on offer.
By no means are these the only destinations you should include on your travel lists, but they do offer some fantastic activities that are sure to give you lots of options to keep the entire family happy.
