Northern Lights in Finland

Northern Lights in FinlandNorthern Lights in Finland

The moment anyone, young or old, first sees the magical Northern Lights is strange and wonderful. The lights are formed from fast-moving, electrically charged solar particles driven towards the Poles by the earth’s magnetic field; when they collide with atmospheric gases they create colourful curtains of light that dance in the night sky.

You’re by no means guaranteed to see them, but there’s lots to keep young minds engaged at Finland’s remote Basecamp Oulanka, from dogsledding to igloo building.

Jungle Adventures

If your little monkeys love wildlife, they’ll love a jungle adventure in Borneo. There’s the opportunity to see Pygmy elephants, Sun bears and orangutans as well as a host of other wildlife.

But for many, the highlight is a canopy walk 40m above the rainforest floor. It follows a multitude of trails along suspension bridges, with stunning views over pristine forest surrounded by butterflies, proboscis monkeys and flying squirrels.

Climbing Dunes

 Namibian sand dunesNamibian sand dunes

In Namibia not only do you have the chance to see some of Africa’s wonderful wildlife, but you’ll also quad bike across the desert and climb the highest dunes in the world.

We set off before dawn to capture the moment the sun appears in the sky and light floods over the dunes turning them from red to gold. It’s a memory to treasure. The kids will also love running and sliding down the side, to arrive at the bottom to a delicious breakfast.
