Winter is often the time when people decide to go skiing for their holiday, either during the Christmas break or at half-term in February. Not all families are keen on the idea of holidaying in the snow, though. If you prefer to be a bit warmer, there are some great winter sun destinations to try instead. The Canary Islands offer beautiful, balmy weather, and you can find some affordable family deals too. If you’re thinking of taking a trip this winter, there are many ways to create some family fun. Here’s how you can create the perfect holiday.
Choose Your Island
First, you need to decide which island you’re interested in. Tenerife, Fuerteventura, Lanzarote and Gran Canaria are some of the most popular islands. These are best for finding a family-friendly resort or hotel and plenty of things to do. You might also want to consider La Palma for some stunning beauty, or La Gomera if you want somewhere that’s a little less popular but no less enjoyable. It depends on what type of holiday you’re looking for and whether you want to be entertained or make your own entertainment.
The right accommodation is always important for a family holiday. You need somewhere that caters to your needs or else a private property where you can get all you need yourself. If you’re going on a family trip, there are some great all inclusive hotels in Fuerteventura, Tenerife, and beyond. An all-inclusive deal is often best if you’re trying to budget because you won’t need to spend much extra once you arrive. You might also want to consider some boutique or luxury options if you’ve got a bit more cash to spare. If you’re more of an independent family, you can find some perfect villas and apartments.
Enjoy Family Activities –
If you’re on a family holiday, you have to find some fun things for the family to do together. Some families might enjoy loosely exploring the area, perhaps going on a walk or bike ride. But others prefer to have set activities to enjoy. Fortunately, the most popular islands have plenty of attractions. There are theme parks in Tenerife and Baku Water Park on Fuerteventura. In Gran Canaria, you can enjoy the science museum, and Lanzarote’s Timanfaya national park is pretty cool too.
Send the Kids to Have Fun
Sometimes, you want a break from the kids. Even though you do want to spend time as a family too, you’d quite like to get in some adult activities during your holiday. If you choose the right place to stay, you can access kids clubs and activities, so you can send them off to have fun on their own. Some places will have programmes for teenagers as well. You can even hire a nanny or babysitter if you need one.
The Canary Islands offer plenty for any family to enjoy. No matter which island you pick, you’re sure to have a fantastic time at any time of the year.
