Top Family Travel Destinations to Visit In 2017

Whatever the type of adventure you want your family to experience this 2017, it’s always a good thing to explore the world with your family when you can – as much as you can. Kids grow too fast and we age, which makes traveling not just something we can do for fun, but memories as well.

Perhaps you want to seek a spell of island escapism of the Greek Islands, or maybe you dream of seeing the Northern Lights in Scandinavia with your family, or it may be that you wish to give your children a unique learning through a trip to a place he or she is studying. Plan your trip, pack up your bags, secure your family travel insurance and have the time of your life with the entire family.

Here are some travel destinations to get that plan rolling.

Greek Islands (Sun, sea, and sand)

If you’re looking for another holiday destination other than the UK, France, Italy, or Spain in the summer, then try the historic Greece. Its mesmerizing beaches, glorious relics, hearty food, and sleepy villages offer richness and simplicity that are universally appealing.

Finnish Lapland (Northern lights and snow safari)

The Northern Lights is one of the earth’s most mesmerizing and surreal experience. To see the celestial wonder in its full glory, bring your family north, above 60 degrees’ latitude at least. Finnish Lapland is especially appealing for families since you can combine your search for the Northern Lights with snowmobile safaris, snowshoeing, and a visit to the reindeer farm.

Galápagos (Wildlife bonanza)

Galapagos is one of the most famous wildlife-watching location in the world – and if it’s your kid’s last year at home, this may be the best time to embark on this trip of a lifetime. This remote archipelago is a land of cactus forest, lush green highlands, tropical beaches and turquoise bays, and even stark lava formations.

Rome, Naples, Sicily (Live ancient history)

If your kid/s are classicists, then nothing’s better than taking a trip to time itself. Follow in the steps of ancient Romans, from child-focused itineraries in Pompeii and Rome to free-tripping to every ancient location you see. Round out all this culture with a relaxing few days in Sicily, where there’s a kids’ club entertainment for the small ones, and golf lessons and spa to keep parents enthusiastic.

California (Summer of love)

San Francisco is marking the 50th anniversary of the original Summer of Love with an array of different events in 2017: concerts and special exhibitions will add to the already amazing family offerings.

Maldives (Total family relaxation)

There has never been a better time for families to visit the wonderful Maldives. These islands have everything to keep the entire family excited and relaxed for days. Turquoise Holidays, for instance, offer a range of packages to the Maldives, to hotels with some of the best kids’ clubs.

So, where are you off to this year? Wherever you decide to go, it’s beneficial – even vital to acquire travel insurance for your family to avoid any unpleasant surprises before and during your travels. There’s nothing like peace of mind, especially when traveling to a destination for the first time.
