Family Travel Destinations

Check out our favourite family travel destinations below. As per our flashpacking family ethos these destinations really do range from extreme budget (think staycation caravan parks) to some high end luxury, and plenty in between. Our family travel blog is a work in progress, so please check back soon if you can’t find the family travel destination you’re looking for.

Moraine Lake in Canada Family Travel Destination


Canada is immensely beautiful and diverse and you will want to see everything, from Banff National Park‘s jewel Lake Louise to the buzzing metropolis scenes. Don’t underestimate the distances between destinations though, especially if you’re considering a road trip across Canada.

Cape Verde


Cape Verde is made up of 10 islands sitting off the coast of West Africa but only two of them are easily accessible from the UK, Boa and Sal. If you want to get away from the All-Inclusive hotels, there are lots of things to do in Sal.

Louvre France Family Travel Destination


France is the family holiday destination that keeps on giving. There are so many regions that make for a great trip, whether it’s city breaks to the likes of Paris or Lyon, long weekends in Alsace or Champagne, or summer holidays exploring Provence, the Loire or Dordogne (to name just a few!)

Kirkjufell in Iceland Family travel Destination


There is so much natural beauty in Iceland, it’s best just to hire your own car in Iceland and set off to explore the island. If you’re lucky, you might see the Northern Lights in Iceland but if not, you won’t leave disappointed. Iceland can be expensive but it doesn’t have to be. Make sure to check our guide on how to do Iceland on a budget and our 6-day Iceland itinerary to give you an idea of what to see and do there.

The treasury in Petra Jordan Family Travel Destination


Home to the iconic archaeological site Petra, we discovered there’s so much more to Jordan, from the Red Sea to the Dead Sea, and the jaw-dropping Martian landscape of Wadi Rum to a string of crusader castles. Read our Jordan itinerary.

Maldives Family Travel Destination


Perhaps the ultimate in beach-holiday luxury, the Maldives is a great place to relax for a family holiday. Read our review of the family-friendly Centara Grand Island Resort & Spa and why the Maldives is a great destination for families.

Chefchauoen Morocco Family travel Destination


Although not that far from the UK, Morocco is culturally so different and is a fascinating place to explore. It’s full of colour and contrasts and despite reports of petty crime, Morocco is safe for families.

St Mary's Basilica in Krakow's main square.


Poland surprised us with beautiful medieval towns, cheap ski resorts and incredible thermal baths with some hearty food thrown in to keep you warm if you’re visiting in the winter months.

Camps Bay South Africa Family Travel Destination


South Africa is one of our favourite places to travel with kids. It is vast with an incredible variety of landscapes and wildlife, and some of the best family safari options anywhere in the world. There’s so much to do in South Africa with kids including family-friendly wine farm picnics – our favourite way to eat in South Africa.

Nine Arch Bridge Sri Lanka Family Travel Destination


Sri Lanka has been voted the best country in the world to visit in 2019 by Lonely Planet. This is quite an accolade, and it is easy to see why. There are so many sides to the country, including Sri Lanka’s fantastic beaches, historic ruins, wildlife-filled jungles and quaint tea estates.

Buckingham Palace United Kingdom


From unspoilt gems like Constable’s Suffolk to Jane Eyre’s Peak District, the UK has some of the most beautiful countryside anywhere. And of course, it’s home to one of the top tourist cities in the world – London – as well as many fabulous historic castles.

Virtual World


During times when travel is not possible, there are many other ways to see the world.  Virtual travel is possible by watching live webcam footage or taking 360-degree virtual tours. We also love watching travel movies and get a lot of our travel inspiration from our favourite films.
