Take your family on an adventure
Instead of sitting on a beach or around the pool for a week make your activity holidays in Europe an experience your kids will be talking about with their friends all year long. There are a growing number of options available for family activity holidays in Europe. Here is our list of some of the more unusual possibilities that are just waiting for your family to discover them
Sea kayaking in Croatia
You could spend a week kayaking in sea off Croatia. Kayaking doesn’t have to be very physically tiring. Your children will love the opportunity to paddle themselves through the water at a leisurely pace and you will be close by to keep an eye on them along with a qualified instructor who can oversee your group.
Kayaking adventures can frequently be adapted to include opportunities for snorkelling or other boat trips as part of the experience.
Explore Iceland with the family
Iceland is a great place for a trip at any time of year. Activity holidays in Europe here can involve hiking around volcanoes marvelling at geysers and exploring huge ice glaciers all in the same week.

Iceland is one of the most diverse landscapes in the world and is totally different to anything you may have witnessed before.
Mountain biking in Catalonia
