I asked other bloggers what their most unique travel destinations were, and surprise, most are do-able even with kids! Have a read and make 2018 your year of adventure…
Star Harford from Autism Kids on Tour
We go on holiday once a year to the Arctic Circle and the children adore it! They love nothing better than waist deep snow and endless sledging and say it is better than Disney World – even if they have to wear 12 layers and its -34!
Iceland – the blue lagoon, black sand beaches, Northern Lights! It would be a dream holiday and there's plenty of activities for the whole family.
Helena from Babyfoote
Thailand! The Chiang Rao Hot Springs, the amazing, spectacular, weird White Temple (Wat Rong Khun) which is a Buddhist temple-cum-art exhibit and the the village of the Long Necks. All unique sights to see.
Giethoorn in The Netherlands. It isn't that well known, but is absolutely beautiful. It's a water village about an hour and a half outside of Amsterdam and is only accessible by boat, bike or foot. It's an absolutely stunning place. We had the most amazing time boating on the lake, meandering down the canals and eating ice cream.
Yellowstone National Park – we went with our then 3-year-old last year and we were worried that he wouldn't enjoy it. We were very wrong. He loved seeing the steam from the geysers and fountain pots, loved throwing stones into the Yellowstone River and also spotting bison as we drove around the park. People might not think of it as a place to bring kids, especially young kids, but it was worth the 11 hour flight from the UK and 800 miles driving from Portland. I'd do it again in a heartbeat.
