Travel with the family Where to go?

It is quite a challenge to plan a vacation with children, since we have to take into account many things that we would otherwise leave aside. If your children are old enough to move to a place a little further from home and there is no problem in traveling several hours by plane, we recommend these destinations:

1. Canada

Emerald Lake in Canada

The best time to visit this North American giant is undoubtedly summer. During the warmer months the ice thaws and the forests take on a wonderful green color. If you like contact with nature, you will enjoy in any of its national parks.

But you can also know some of its most important cities, such as Ottawa, Montreal, Vancouver, Toronto and Québec, they will surely surprise you. And why not take the opportunity to enjoy the wonderful Cirque du Soleil? Or marvel at Niagara Falls? Canada awaits you!

2. Auvergne (France)

The good thing about this area of ​​the French center is that it can be completely covered by car and with all the comfort … ideal to go with the children and all their toys. The camping areas are really beautiful and very well equipped, the villages you will pass through seem to be taken from a medieval dream, with walls and castles.

Get away from the crowded Paris, you can visit the city and the Disney parks on another occasion, and enjoy a family adventure through a fascinating French region, Auvergne.

3. United States

Yellowstone Landscape
Yellowstone – MISHELLA

If we have decided to postpone the trip to Disney Paris … why go to the United States, the cradle of Mickey and his friends? Well, because, clearly, it is not the only thing that can be done in one of the largest countries in the world. In this case, we recommend that you take advantage of the fact that 2016 marks the 100th anniversary of the creation of the National Park Service. .. And celebrate it in the best way!

Just to name two of the best known: Yellowstone and Yosemite. In total, the United States has 59 reserves throughout its territory: 340 thousand km² of nature in total … and truly spectacular landscapes that include swamps, forests, canyons, rivers and mountains.

4. Singapore

Singapore Marina Bay

It may sound like a somewhat exotic destination to go as a family (and even a bit daring), but the truth is that Singapore has been working to offer itself to the world as a safe, fun and special place  for any age.

One of the most beautiful places to go with children is an amusement park called Kidzania, where the little ones can perform in 80 real work scenarios (from firefighter to journalist, going through what you can think of). For a quieter plan, the island of Pulau Ubin, with its traditional villages called Kampongs.

5. Ireland

Cliffs of Moher, Ireland
Cliffs of Moher, Ireland – Patryk Kosmider

Traveling to Dublin and all of the Irish territory is affordable, so there are no excuses. The Emerald Isle awaits you to offer you its beautiful landscapes (many of them you have seen in movies) that include the Wiclow Valley, the Cliffs of Moher and the wonderful cities of Galway and Cork.

If you want to go to the capital of Ireland, 2016 marks the 100th anniversary of the Easter uprising, a fact that marked the creation of the Republic. A very young city (you can also see it in its inhabitants), which although it has the extension of a metropolis, continues to maintain its “village soul”.

6. Italy

Naples in Italy

The beautiful and elegant boot-shaped nation has so much to see that a single vacation won’t cut it. Visiting Rome (including the Vatican) when you have children is not a good idea, since they quickly get tired of standing in line or do not like the idea of ​​visiting several museums in the same day.

That is why we recommend Naples, a lively city but quieter than the capital. But be careful… all of you will return home with several extra kilos! Pizzas and pastas are the order of the day here. For dessert, the gelatto … no longer using the scale. To lower the calories a bit, you can visit the ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum and see the Vesuvius volcano in the distance.

Have you already decided where to go this summer vacation with your family?
