Let’s be honest about it, family travel can sometimes become boring. For any parents with a passion for travel, going on beach holiday after beach holiday, can become a little dull. There’s so much more to traveling than exploring cities, sunbathing, and browsing tourist attractions.
Many parents don’t realize it, but when it comes to making family travel more enjoyable, the key is to think outside the box. The vacations marketed at us moms and dads are always at resorts that have been specially created for families. The problem is that these places don’t offer authentic family travel. If you want a vacation with a difference, you need to get creative.
To give you a helping hand, I thought that I would share three amazing vacation ideas that are a little more exciting than your average family trip.
1. Hit the slopes
If you’ve never taken your children skiing, a ski trip could be the perfect vacation. Unlike most other family-friendly vacations, skiing is a lot more exciting and perfect for kids with a high amount of energy. Even the most energetic kids will be tired out after a few hours on the slope.
There are ski resorts across the world, from Canada to France. So whichever corner of the globe you fancy heading to, there should be somewhere to ski there. Of course, one of the best areas for skiing is in the Canadian Rockies, so if that’s an option, opt to take the kids there.
2. Take a road trip
If you’re a family that loves exploring and gets bored staying one place, a road trip could be perfect. The amazing thing about traveling from place to place is that there’s always something new to see and do. There are so many places that you can go via road. From central Europe to Australia, you can see most of the world from the window of your motorhome.
Invest in an RV or travel trailer, map out a route and drive your family on the trip of a lifetime. For families who love to see as many different places as possible, road tripping could be ideal. Thanks to newer designs, travel trailers are now much more spacious and comfortable, so are ideal for families of all sizes.
3. Camp under the stars
Are your kids nature mad? How about planning a camping trip? It might be a little more basic than your average vacation but for kids, sleeping under the stars is often, the ultimate dream. While you could stay at a campsite, for a more authentic and adventurous trip, camp in the wilderness. As part of your vacation build up, you and your kids could even attend some wilderness survival training.
The best thing about camping is that not only is it exciting for the whole family, but that it's also affordable. So if money is a little tight, camping under the stars is the perfect family vacation. The kids can run around and explore, and you can sit and relax, free from the distractions of everyday life.
There you have it, three incredible vacation ideas that are perfect for families who love to travel.
