Adventure holidays are perfect for active families, giving you the opportunity to work as a team and fit in some family bonding time between your daily activities.

Family Adventure Holidays in Europe

The Costa Blanca in Spain is a great location for sports including rock climbing. Rock climbing here isn't only for professionals, with specific tours and instructional guides to keep your children safe and happy.

Turkey also provides a great location for water sports such as surfing, coastal swimming and boating available for the brave. These aren't always suitable for very young children under the age of 11, but these tours are usually guided, meaning that you can make the most of your time in the water. When doing water sports abroad, it's important to make sure your family travel insurance covers the activities that you'll be participating in. In some cases, it may be necessary to take out one of our three extra activity packs which can be added to your policy when making a quote.

Family Adventure Holidays in the UK

One of the most exciting and exotic adventure holidays you can experience in the UK is scuba-diving in Scotland's Orkney islands. You can see shipwrecks, seals and a host of other marine life up close, with training courses and beginner's advice available before you dive.

Staying in an adventure holiday chalet or resort in the UK such as Centre Parcs or PGL is a must for would-be explorers hoping to take part in a wide range of activities such as archery, zip-lining and even horse riding. These holidays ensure that you can never run out of things to do and they will keep the children entertained for weeks.

Camping in England's National Parks is also a great way to both reconnect with nature and explore what the wilderness has to offer. Camping is also great for those on a budget and will allow you to explore a number of different locations such as Pembrokeshire, the Lake District and the Yorkshire Moors.
