Top Five Outdoor Family Adventures!

What does your family like to do to stay healthy and active?
Hiking the West Coast Trail

Thinking of unique ways to get your family out and about can sometimes be tricky. With a little help from Kidzworld, however, you and the fam could be having the time of your lives. Find out where you can go to get fit and have fun while doing it!

Outdoor Family Trips - Hiking the West Coast Trail

The West Coast Trail is located in the Pacific Rim National Park in British Columbia, Canada. It is open every year from May 1st to September 30th. Although the trail is closed until next season, now is the perfect time to start preparing for your hike next year. This isn't your average stroll through the park - the West Coast Trail is 46.6 miles (75 km) of intense terrain. You'll need light-weight camping gear, proper footwear, rain gear and enough food to last you the five to seven days you'll be on the trail. Start a family boot camp this winter to get the 'rents and your sibs in tip-top shape for this once-in-a-lifetime summer vacation!

Outdoor Family Trips - Skiing the Swiss Alps

Pack up your skis or snowboards and head off to Switzerland for the ultimate ski vacation. There are several ski resorts to choose from in the Swiss Alps, each with their own charm. The town of Zermatt is located at the bottom of the famous Matterhorn mountain and is a car-free zone to preserve the beautiful scenery from pollution. Make it a real family affair by all taking a lesson together from one of the many ski and snowboard schools in town.

Outdoor Family Trips - Scuba Diving in Australia

Looking for a warmer way to get the blood circulating? Try talking the 'rents into a trip down under! Scuba diving around the Great Barrier Reef is not only a good way to get the whole family movin', it's a great, hands-on biology lesson. You'll see colorful fish, sharks, turtles, coral and amazing plants. Start saving those pennies!

Outdoor Family Trips - Walk the Great Wall of China

You definitely won't be making it from one end of the Great Wall to the other, but you can walk a good portion of it. The entire wall is 4,000 miles (6,400 km) long and was originally built in the 5th century to protect China from warring enemies. Start your historical walk in Beijing, the host of the 2008 Olympic games!

Outdoor Family Trips - Surfing in Hawaii

Now who would turn down a surf trip in Hawaii? Get your mom, dad, brothers and sisters all to try their hand at hanging ten. What better way of bonding with the fam than spending the whole day in the ocean water? Most of the islands will have numerous surf schools to choose from and there may even be specific family packages! Be sure to keep re-applying the sunscreen though - the Hawaii sun has been known to wreak havoc on tourists skin.
