Family Adventure Holidays in Europe

Proof that you don’t have to travel far from home to have a fantastic adventure, Europe brims with exciting organized family holidays, with mountain and river landscapes being particularly popular. The main benefits of staying in Europe are clear – lower costs and shorter travel times.

Winter adventure holidays can embrace everything from snowmobile jaunts and reindeer safaris in Lapland to exploring the giant glaciers and other dramatic features of Iceland’s rugged landscapes. In summer, adventure holidays all over Europe, from the French Alps to Malta or Croatia, might include sailing, cycling, canoeing and river-rafting.  Many such holidays are easy to organize independently, but using a tour operator established in the field may bring peace of mind and freedom from hassle, especially if it’s your first time.

Most adventure holidays have strict lower age limits, but if in doubt do ask for advice regarding the suitability of a specific trip for your family. Some are or can be tailored for those with younger children.
