Description of Malta family holiday

This relaxed family holiday explores Malta and its neighbouring islands of Gozo and Comino. There is so much here for families to enjoy – a great climate that is pleasant all year round, clear seas and a real sense of tradition and culture, too, plus abundant tasty, local food.

You’ll be based first on Malta, where the tiny capital city Valletta is a great place to wander through, discovering its shady backstreets and beautiful Baroque buildings on an open air museum walking tour. There is also a free day included in this week long itinerary, so you can decide to visit a theme park or water park, explore an old medieval town or fishing village, or try horse riding along sandy beaches.

On Gozo, where you spend four nights, enjoy cycling along the coast, discovering peaceful trails where few other travellers venture. You can also head inland on a jeep, to find remote villages high up in the hills and meet local people who follow a lifestyle little changed in centuries. Children will also enjoy the chance to live like a shepherd for a day, taking care of the animals, cutting the corn and learning how to cook traditional dishes.

The tiny island of Comino is a wildlife sanctuary and an excellent destination for some snorkelling. Your boat will drop anchor in one of the island's secluded bays so you can snorkel here in the beautifully clear waters, swim or simply relax in the sun.

Hello. If you'd like to chat about this holiday or need help finding one we're very happy to help. Rosy & team.

Holiday type
This trip is for families only (including any aunts, uncles or cousins who’d like to come along, of course). As long as you’re travelling with a child under the age of 18, you’re a family in our eyes. Plus, unlike other travel companies, children aged 17 years and younger receive a 10% discount off the price of their trip. Travelling our way is a bit like travelling with a group of friends. Made up of 3-5 like-minded families, the kids tend to hit it off on these trips straight away, allowing you to enjoy some well earned R&R. We often find the whole family ends up making friendships with people from all over the world, staying in touch long after the adventure ends.

Our family group sizes are small enough to avoid the crowds and reach some out-of-the-way places, but big enough for a good social mix. Our average group size of 10 allows us to hop aboard local boats, buses or trains, eat at friendly, family-run restaurants and kick back in traditional accommodation and homestays.

We know the biggest challenge on a family trip is keeping the kids entertained. So we’ve planned in advance. Nearly all of our hotels feature pools, and each day has a great mix of action-packed adventure and flexible free time. Your local leader can also suggest activities based on your kid’s hobbies or school curriculum.

Responsible mission: As adventure travellers we relish and celebrate the diversity of the world. We also recognise our obligation to protect the environments that we explore. Our aim is to tread lightly, whilst contributing to maintain the world’s culture and nature, and most importantly to engage the help of all our customers to utilise the potential of tourism as a tool to aid sustainable development. We believe that responsible travellers are welcome in the places that they visit.

We stay in small locally owned accommodation and make use of local adventure activity guides and operators. Our small groups have minimal impact on the local environment.

The local supplier for this trip will promote our responsible travel code throughout your adventure. You will also receive specific information on this trip’s responsibility in your trip notes.

Helping to minimise negative impact:
All of our customers are invited to offset their international flight emissions. Contributions go to the Blue Ventures Carbon Offset program, a non-profit organisation which provides solar stoves for subsistence communities in Madagascar, benefiting the people and protecting the environment. We also contribute £2 per person towards offsetting of your in-country travel. We fully offset all emissions from our staff travel and run an energy efficient office.

Giving something back: We have a foundation that collects the funds that you donate to us to support our projects. All our customers are invited to make a £1 per person contribution to the foundation at the time of booking. We will match every contribution that you make with our own £1. You as a customer choose where these funds are used from a shortlist of nominated projects – so it really is YOUR foundation.
