The festive season is the ideal time for a family adventure holiday, whether you want to escape or embrace the time of year. Perhaps you’re looking for a pre-Christmas trip or want a break after the festivities. Or, you might want to be away throughout the period and celebrate Christmas in style.
Whether you are looking at wintery Christmas holidays for families in Iceland or Swedish Lapland, or want winter sun in Morocco or Oman, we’ve a range of excellent suggestions. Further afield, a tailor-made family adventure in South Africa or India works brilliantly, as do holidays in Cambodia or Malaysia over the Christmas period. You could even spend Christmas at surf school in Australia or whale watching in New Zealand.
