Holidays for families

Need inspiration for your next family holiday? Look no further, Ferratum have the answer!

Between working and trying to keep the kids busy with summer activities, it´s not hard to see how finding the time to book a holiday for you and your family could feel like a luxury. 

Fear not – there´s still plenty of time. So, if you´re still looking for a sunny summer escape and need some ideas of where to go and what to do, look no further!  

Here are five last-minute, family-friendly summer holiday destinations: 

1. Gjerrild Nordstrand, Djursland, Denmark

When people think of beach holidays in Europe, they usually think of Spain, Portugal or Italy. However, Gjerrild Nordstrand on the Djursland peninsula in Denmark is a beautiful and calm beachside escape for adults and kids alike.  

With fine white sands and shallow waters, Gjerrild Nordstrand is child-friendly and perfect for both bathing and tanning. Lodge at one of many family campsites, all of which offer a combination of playgrounds, trampolines, mini-golf, and heated adult and children swimming pools.  

2. Disneyland Paris, France

The most visited theme park in Europe, since 1992 Europeans have been enjoying Disneyland Paris and for a very good reason – it´s “the happiest place on earth”.  

Divided into five themed lands with a total of 49 attractions, Disneyland Park is fun for all ages. Keep an eye out for 2-for-1 tickets as well as hotel and park packages. 

3. Somerset, UK

When it comes to relaxing escapes and serene beauty, there are few places dreamier than Somerset in South West England. With its rolling hills and stunning countryside, Somerset is the epitome of rural English beauty. 

Take the family to the spectacular Secret Valley farmyards. Let the kids pet animals or play at the Black Rock Outdoor Activity Centre while the adults enjoy wine tasting from Secret Valley´s own vineyards. 

4. Liseberg Amusement Park, Gothenburg, Sweden

Scandinavia’s biggest amusement park Liseberg Amusement Park in Gothenburg, Sweden is for thrill-seekers of all age. Attracting nearly three million visitors annually, Liseberg has something for everyone with 42 rides and attractions. 

Home to the world-famous wooden coaster Balder, other highlights include Europe’s longest Dive Coaster the Valkyria and Scandinavia’s fastest rollercoaster, HELIX. Meanwhile, the little ones will love Barnens Paradis. 

5. Lanzarote, Canary Islands, Spain

In addition to its otherworldly landscapes and beautiful beaches, the Unesco biosphere reserve that is Lanzarote, one of the Canary Islands off the coast of West Africa, is also a great destination for kids.  

When it comes to unique experiences, Lanzarote offers two incredible opportunities. Walk the surface of the moon at Timanfaya National Park and be breath taken by the surreal volcanic landscapes. Or explore the depths of the Atlantic Ocean with submarine safaris, which takes visitors 30m (100ft) below the ocean. 

Other popular activities include Aqualava and Aquapark waterparks, and the Rancho Texas Lanzarote Park zoo where visitors can swim with the sea lions or watch animals perform shows. 

So, where will you and your family escape to these holidays?
