European Winter Family Holiday Wonderland Adventure
We all love a fantastic family holiday but what if the idea of going to the beach doesn’t get anyone in your house particularly excited? Where else can you all have a fun time together? There are other types of holiday in Europe, which the kids and the grownups in the group will all love. A group ski break is a fine example of the sort of holiday which can give the whole family some very special memories.
Have a Family Adventure
Perhaps the most important point of all to mention is that a skiing trip is a fabulous adventure. There are few things as thrilling as heading off to a winter wonderland for a trip like this. Of course, if the young ones are going to enjoy their first taste of skiing then you will want to choose the right resort as your destination. In that case, the likes of Maria Alm in Austria is a great choice. Here, there are some very gentle beginner’s runs to get everyone started safely. Be sure to get a qualified instructor to do the teaching, as this will let you all gain confidence more quickly.
Enjoy Plenty of Exercise
It is fair enough to say that a holiday is a time of year for relaxing. However, some parents worry that their parents take the theory just a bit too far. If you don’t want to see the little ones lounging about all day then taking a skiing trip will make sure they get plenty of fresh air and exercise. Best of all, they will be having so much fun that they don’t even realize that they are getting all of this exercise.
The older members of the group can also enjoy a lot of physical activity, which will be especially welcome if you don’t have all that much time to do exercises at home. Even away from the slopes you don’t need to just sit around all day long. For instance, Serre Chevalier in France has an outdoor skating rink. There is also easy access to a sports centre and an indoor fun pool. This makes it pretty much ideal for families looking to burn off a lot of energy while they are away from home.
Quality Nights Together
Ask anyone who has gone on a top quality skiing holiday and they will tell you that the nights are just as exciting as the days. While some holidaymakers look for a vibrant nightlife, family groups can also find a lot to suit them. Fantastic restaurants and cosy chalets are among some of the top evening attractions. Montgenèvre in France is another resort which offers safe skiing for the kids in the day, as well as a charming village setting to enjoy in the evenings. The nightlife is suitable for couples or singles as well, but it isn’t wild enough to put families off. A snug evening in front of the fire talking about the adventures of the day is the perfect way to end a memorable day of skiing here.
