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.


Canada is also immensely beautiful and diverse and you will want to see everything., from Banff’s jewel Lake Louise to the buzzing city life. Never underestimate the distances between destinations, especially if you’re considering a road trip across Canada.

Morocco posts coming soon!

Sri Lanka has been voted 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.
