All the latest inspiration and guidance for help you plan your next family hoilday

Whether you’ve not been away with the kids for a while or are stuck in a rut with your family holidays, choosing a destination for a trip with the brood can sometimes feel overwhelming.

But, don’t worry, we’re here to help. To inspire you, here are five family-friendly holiday destinations that the tripAbrood team recommends – that you may not have considered.


Copenhagen

Recommended by Kate Standen, family concierge team

“Copenhagen is a great destination to visit with children. Tivoli Gardens is a fantastic day out for the whole family. It’s not your average amusement park as it offers more than rides. There are also beautiful gardens and restaurants, and it’s magical when lit up at night.

“Other great family attractions in Copenhagen are a statue of The Little Mermaid, a symbol of the city, which can be seen on a rock by the waterside at the Langelinie promenade (although, she may be smaller than you expect). The 17th-century tower and observatory, Rundetaarn, is also worth a visit for great views over the city. Plus, there are great playgrounds and parks in Copenhagen.”


Sorrento & the Amalfi Coast

Recommended by Katie Stepek, product manager

“Sorrento and the surrounding areas are super family-friendly. There are great caves to explore on tours, you can visit and teach the kids about Pompeii and Vesuvius, and you can do day trips to Capri, Ischia and Procida – Italy’s Captial of Culture for 2022. Plus, kids are treated like royalty – this is speaking as a formally very fussy child who was happily given pasta and butter by restaurants everywhere we went.”


Croatia

Recommended by Victoria Mallinson, travel expert, family concierge team

“Visit Croatia with its beautiful clear waters, pebbly beaches and vast coastline to explore. There are plenty of activities available such as sailing, cycling, kayaking and hiking.

“Plus, Croatia has a fascinating history, with a mix of Roman, Greek, Slavic, Venetian and Austro-Hungarian shown in Dubrovnik’s Old Town. And there’s a Roman amphitheatre in Pula as well as Diocletian’s Palace in Split.

“Weather-wise, it’s fantastic in the summer and still warm and balmy in the shoulder months of May and September.”


Slovenia

Recommended by Cathy Toogood, content editor

“Slovenia is a country with lakes to swim in, castles to step back in time in and plenty of myths to discover. In Bled, children can make a wish by ringing the bell in the Church of the Assumption, while they can spot dragons in Croatia’s capital, Ljubljana.

“And there are outdoor adventures galore. Take a cable car up Mount Vogel to look out over Lake Bohinj from a showstopping spot next to freely roaming Alpine cows, or watch the rapids and the Sum Waterfall while at the Vintgar Gorge near Bled.

“Children will love the food too, from kremšnita (Bled cream cake) and local sausages to dumplings, pizza and pasta.”


Costa Rica

Recommended by Kate Standen, family concierge team

“For a once-in-a-lifetime trip, visit Costa Rica with your children. There are wildlife encounters, zipline excursions, Mistico Arenal Hanging Bridges Park, sea kayaking, snorkelling, surfing and more.”
