Beach season in Europe is over, the UK is wet and miserable, and the ski season hasn’t started yet!
Half-term is almost upon us already, Yikes!
But it is the perfect time for one last break with the family before the Christmas season begins and the nights really begin to draw in.
A getaway with the kids is a wonderful opportunity to spend some quality family time together, but let’s be honest – it can be a difficult task finding a holiday that everyone will enjoy. In fact, research has shown that 1 in 14 families often end up doing something that no-one actually wants to do when they plan a trip.
October is a particularly difficult time for planning a family holiday – beach season in Europe is over, the UK is wet and miserable, and the ski season hasn’t started yet, so what can you do and where can you go?
Luckily, Undiscovered Mountains has a simple solution. The multi-activity holiday specialists offer year-round activity holidays in the Southern French Alps, which has 300 days of sunshine a year.
Plus, the company runs a unique activity points system which allows each member of the family to tailor-make their holiday to suit their interests; bonus!
So each member of the family will be given 9 activity points which can then be used towards any activities of their choosing.
This means families can choose to do activities together as well as doing individual activities which best suit their interests.
The exciting array of activities on offer include via ferrata, rock climbing, horse riding, paragliding, caving, mountain biking and more.
Their flexible activity points system is the perfect solution for families as they can mix and match from our wide selection of activities to suit everyone’s interests.
It’s an ideal system for families where one child might be scared of heights for example, while the others love rock climbing and hiking. With their activity points system, the children are able to pick exactly what they want to do and no-one has to miss out or do something they don’t enjoy.
It also gives everyone the chance to try out some new activities alongside their favourite hobbies, sounds perfect, I know our family of 6 would definitely benefit from this idea.
Each activity typically uses approximately 2-3 activity points, meaning you can spread your 9 activity points across 3-5 exciting activities over the course of the week. Generous parents can even share out some of their own points with their children if they wish, allowing the kids to do even more activities…or not ;-) #selfishparentmoment
The Undiscovered Mountains’ multi-activity holiday package is located in Gap in the Hautes-Alps. You can choose from a range of accommodation options including camping, luxury chalets, farmhouses and hotels.
So, what are you waiting for, that’s half term sorted then!
