Taking your kids away at Christmas gives them the bonus of extra excitement as they prepare for a fun-filled trip abroad. Better still, choose a holiday that is jam packed with adventure and guarantees snow, and you’ll earn some serious brownie points this winter! Little can beat a family get-together on holiday where you can all spend quality time together and create some magical memories along the way. Holidays nourish kid’s spirits and are beneficial in getting them out there to join in activities and adventures. It’s not only adults that need a mini break from the regular! Below I’ve suggested two magical winter holiday destinations that will ignite the Christmas spirit in all of the family. Ready to go on a snowy adventure?
What little kid doesn’t dream of meeting the real Father Christmas in his hometown of Lapland? We don’t need to tell them just yet that there happens to be a few Lapland’s around! Great destinations for family activity holidays certainly include Finnish Lapland. Each holiday here has a private audience with Father Christmas, so your kids get to see the big red man at work. To visit him, you’ll be taken by sleigh to his house, where you may also be able to help the elves and also make gingerbread cookies by candlelight. They can also get out in the fresh air and powder white snow to enjoy a whole host of thrilling activities. There are snowmobiling, husky rides, and tobogganing to enjoy in a spellbinding snowy landscape. If you stay for a whole week, you can settle into a warm and cosy cabin so you can spend quality time together. There are plenty of activities on offer all week. These include Christmas crafts, cross-country skiing, husky safaris and searches for the wishing tree. And Mum can even book in some time at the spa too! It’s a bewitching way to spend Christmas and will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience for your kids.
If your children haven’t been skiing before, why not plan a magical winter skiing trip to Whistler in Canada for a thrilling adventure and lots of guaranteed snow? Whistler offers a captivating pedestrianised village and a truly magical winter ambiance. It’s also the perfect place to teach your kids how to ski. The resort offers special programmes for kids. These start from the age of three and go up to eighteen, with both private and group lessons available. It’s a great skill to have under their belt and will give them confidence and a fun filled holiday too. Activity based holidays are great to get the heart pumping, and even better when the land you’re in is covered in white powder snow. Whistler also offers plenty of other exhilarating adventures too. You can take a ride on the incredible PEAK to PEAK gondola, and also enjoy dog sledding, ice skating, bobsleighing and snowshoeing. It’s a spellbinding place for a Christmas holiday. It’s jam-packed with fun and adventure all under the twinkling fairy lights of magical Christmas dreams.
