The top 5 ways to have the ultimate family holiday

So the kids have gone back to school, Halloween is around the corner and I'm sure I can see Christmas on the horizon. Having got back from the most wonderful holiday with Eurocamp in France, my thoughts are more towards our next holiday than what's on everyone's Christmas lists.

Our Holiday to Lac De Chalain, France 2018

I think our next holiday will either be America visiting family or another European Adventure with Eurocamp. However, if money was no option I certainly have some complete dream holiday ideas for the family and I thought it would make for a fun blog post.


We all know how much families enjoy a trip to the zoo, mine is no exception, so that's why in my eyes a safari is one of the ultimate holiday destinations. Take a safari in South Africa, a smaller reserve such as KwaZulu-Natal province offers the perfect playground for nature-loving families.  You can get tours which are completely aimed at families for around £2,500 per person. These include activities such as animal tracking, kayaking, snorkelling, bush skills, visits to cheetah and elephant conservation centres and unforgettable visits to a Zulu village. This would truly be a once in a lifetime experience.

Sri Lanka

A country I have always wanted to visit, especially when I was at university (I almost booked a trip for me and Jamie) but it's somewhere we haven't ventured to yet. With it's stunning beaches and even more impressive Temples, Sri Lanka is a dream destination to immerse yourself in relaxation and culture.


This is somewhere I was fortunate to go to with my family and because I've experienced it's magic it makes me want to return and take my own children even more. The Northern Lights are one of nature's great displays, a free, multicoloured light show that is most commonly sighted in the Arctic regions. Whilst I was unfortunate on my visit and there's guarantee's what an incredible spectacle it must be if you're lucky enough to witness. Finnish Lapland is especially appealing for families, as you can combine your search for the Northern Lights with snowshoeing, snowmobile safaris, and a visit to a reindeer farm.

Travelling in style

Flying first class or even charter your own flight for your family there are so many ways you could make your holiday even more special. If you already fly private frequently, you may wish to look into something like these private jet card programs to get a flights for a pre-arranged rate, which could potentially save you some money. You could even make the mode of transport the centre stage of the holiday, for example, travelling across America in a campervan.

Quirky Accommodation

Of course, luxury hotels are readily available in most holiday destinations. However, if your family is looking for accommodation that's slightly more unusual, you really can get some quirky getaways. Treehouse holidays is something we're currently looking at for Easter and we really think it will be something incredibly special for our young children.

I would love to hear your ideas for the ultimate family holiday and as always, you can leave your thoughts and ideas below.
