Top ten multi activity vacations

Multi activity vacations let you chuck yourself into something new on a daily basis as opposed to focusing purely on one particular pursuit for an entire week. Cooking, skiing, snorkelling, sailing… our list of top ten multi activity vacations will tempt you into trying something new.

1. Northern Lights with the family

Vast open spaces are what the far north of Finland is all about, and, at certain times of the year the Northern Lights are visible, too. Bring your kids along to view one of the world’s most breathtaking natural phenomena; and get acquainted with reindeer and huskies, too.
When to go: January to April

2. Montenegro

Montenegro is packed full of thick forests, craggy mountains, shimmering glacial lakes and underground spring rivers, all providing a dramatic adventure playground for hikers, bikers and kayakers. Durmitor National Park, the Tara River and Lake Skadar all make excellent stopping off points on a small group activity vacation.

3. Winter adventure in Finland

Finland and winter adventure go together like Santa and reindeers, so head for the far north of the Arctic Circle and you’ll be in frozen outdoorsy heaven. Husky safaris, snowshoeing, cross country skiing - it’s all there. And the Aurora Borealis too, if you’re lucky.
