A right royal family adventure
Thanks to the additional Bank Holiday on Tuesday 5 June, courtesy of Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee anniversary celebrations, there has never been a better time to enjoy a half-term family adventure holiday. What’s more, parents only need to use up just three precious days’ annual leave!
Here are a handful of ideas of trips still available from the UK’s leading Family adventure company, Families Worldwide:
Active Catalonia: 8 days from £779 pp
This new trip is ideal for those who have children that take a lot of wearing out! The holiday is based at a 17th century farmhouse, just a short walk from the sandy beach and small village of Pere Pescadore. Highlights of the busy itinerary include horse riding and kayaking plus 6 hours of activities at Adventure Lake; high ropes, climbing wall, archery and abseiling. Other activities include quad biking (optional), an introduction to canyoning plus time to chill on the beach. The holiday departs on 2 June and costs from £779 per child (age 7+) and £799 per adult.
