Top Five Outdoor Family Adventures!

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.

    Kawaii Chan P.O.V Kawaii waited at the bus stop after leaving the house, only just hearing what Katelyn said, she was tempted to go back and finish the cupcake... No, she had to see Zane. The bus came and she went in "where you goin' today sugar?" Kawaii Chan smiled at the man "kawaii Chan is going to the hospital" she said, giving the man a few dollars "please take a seat" kawaii Chan nodded as the bus driver tipped his hat at her, and they started up the road Zane P.O.V Zane felt the wheel chair go over a bump and into the air-conditioned hospital, he shivered, hearing doctors speak, kids crying and adults grunting, groaning and moaning made him nervous, thinking he had to look proper, he sat up straight, instantly regretting it, his back cracked and the nurse laughed "you know, you don't have to be fancy to be at a hospital, right?" Zane sighed "well it sure felt that way" the nurse laughed again, not responding though, then he heard running footsteps behind him, slightly screaming, then a voice "Zane kun!" He realised who it was, "k-kawaii Chan?" Kawaii Chan laughed "of course it's kawaii Chan, silly!" He bit his lip "okay.." he felt himself going over another bump, probably his hospital room, "uh, Zane, you'll need to get up to get on the bed, though you can't see, you think you'll be alright?" Zane shook his head "no" someone took his hand "kawaii Chan can help!" He realised kawaii Chan holding his hand, but he knew he was okay, it was kawaii Chan, he would be safe with her, he realised he was muttering "miss, you're blushing, are you alright?" The nurse said, and kawaii Chan giggled "I'm okay"
