Jonny Bealby, founder of our leading supplier Wild Frontiers, gives his advice on small group walking holidays for families:
Donít overstretch yourself on a family walking holiday, especially in remote parts of the world. Some children are great and can walk as far as the parents can, depending on age of course. But in general, it is better from a safety point of view to aim low and achieve, than aim high and not achieve. Because not achieving, in some of these places, can cause you some quite serious problems.
Melanie McAnaw, walking holiday expert from our supplier, Headwater: We would recommend our single centre holidays for families. These are great because youíre based in one hotel and can enjoy lots of other activities as well as the great walking routes. Or go for a combination activity holiday, such as our Dordogne or Austrian holidays,that combine walking with cycling and canoeing.
