Fishing holidays

Fishing holidays are very popular amongst people of all ages and can be enjoyed alone, with friends and with family. There are hundreds of different types of fishing holidays available to you, depending on what you are looking for.

If you want to spend the majority of the trip fishing, then you would want to either book a specifically designed fishing tour holiday or arrange it yourself, knowing in advance where the places are to go to fish and ensuring you have the appropriate licenses.

You can opt for a fishing holiday where you stay on a boat for the entire trip travelling round the ocean. You will be fishing off the side of the boat and then may port at a few locations to allow you to get off and go and explore the local surrounds and get a bite to eat.

Fishing holidays range massively in price as there is so many options available, but the cheapest way to do it is to organise one yourself.

A treehouse adventure

If you’re looking for a family holiday with a real sense of adventure why not try a treehouse holiday. These incredible treehouses can be found both in the UK and abroad and look spectacular sent out amongst the canopy of the trees. You’ll certainly need a head for heights and sense of adventure but this type of holiday would be fun even for the most reluctant teenager! A holiday adventure like this really takes everyone back to their youth climbing rope ladders and walking across wobbly bridges to get to different parts of the accommodation.

Needless to say due to the nature of the accommodation they would not be suitable for young children but would be perfect for those a little older and even as a group of fun-loving adults.

And you may be in a tree but there’s no need to rough it either as you can actually get a luxury treehouse with a fully functioning bathroom, whatever next?!

Great caravanning holidays

If like me you have a family and dread the expense of a holiday then rest assured that there are some great deals to be had if you can shop around a bit. If you children below school age so therefore are not restricted to school holidays then you can bag yourself a real bargain. Surprisingly I recently found a caravan on Facebook that was £200 for a week right on the sea front. Had I needed to go a week later (during school holidays) the prices rocketed to over £500 for the week!

If you do have to stick to school holidays but simply cannot afford the prices then why not look at going away for a few small weekend breaks in term time. This way you do not have to take your children out of school and yet can benefit from the cheaper prices. Also you may find that attractions and events are cheaper during this period too.

Visiting the Lochs in Scotland

Scotland is home to some of the most beautiful locations in the UK. So much of the countryside remains unspoilt and the views can be amazing all year round what ever the weather. There are at least 31,460 Lochs in Scotland each one offering a different experience.

One of the most famous Lochs is Loch Ness and I’m not talking about the myth of the sea monster. I visited Loch Ness as a child and was amazed to find out that it was actually the name of a lake (as such) not a monster. Due to the stories told for many years about Loch Ness it has certainly put it on the map of one of the top tourist destinations in Scotland. The area is superb with views that will take your breath away and if you want to explore the stories a little more then the local museum is a most on your places to visit whilst there. The Loch expands a massive 23 miles and is its surface is a staggering 52 foot above sea level.

Teen Holidays

Having teenagers can make finding suitable holidays tricky, especially if your teen likes an adventure style holiday and gets bored just sitting on the beach or by the pool all day.
However lots of travel companies have now caught on to this idea and do specific ‘teen holidays’ where teenagers can take part in supervised trips and adventure style holidays with other people their age. These trips are really fantastically actioned packed with things such as camel rides around the pyramids in Egypt and mountain climbing in the French Alps.
With so much to do your teen is sure to stay amused and with the piece of mind of supervised trips and accommodation that is set up just for teens you can rest at ease knowing they are safe and cared for whilst having a trip of a lifetime with their friends.
Of course you could always go on a family trip then just book day trips for your teen if they are too young to travel alone or don’t feel confident, activities such as scuba diving always go down well and are great fun for teenagers to enjoy.
