Top picks for October half-term
Depressed by the thought of long winter nights setting in? Why not consider treating your family to an adventure holiday for an invigorating boost to break up the long Autumn term. In just one week you could explore countries like Morocco, Egypt, Jordan or Turkey on an action-packed adventure holiday. Or if you have a two week half-term, why not consider a long-haul destination such as India, Sri Lanka & the Maldives or South Africa?
Close to home
October half-term is an ideal month to head to a number of destinations including Sorrento and Tuscany in Italy or perhaps even the Dalmatian coast in Croatia. Enjoy the remaining sunshine as we spend a week enjoying canyoning, mountain biking and sea kayaking in comfortable temperatures. Furthermore, with the sea still pleasantly warm at this time of year and most of the summer crowds dispersed, it really is an ideal time of year for all the family to get away and enjoy quality time together.
Another hugely popular Explore family holiday destination is Morocco. Under four hours from the UK and with an increasing amount of direct flight options, the intense heat of summer is melting away and you can expect warm sunshine during the day with cool, crisp evenings and nights, perfect to unwind and relax after a busy day.
Far flung adventures
Late October is also an excellent time to visit Oman, India and Sri Lanka, when the summer monsoon has been replaced by clear, cool air and the fierce temperatures have dropped. Heading to the southern hemisphere, October half-term is an ideal time to travel around the Western Cape in South Africa and Namibia, temperatures are perfect, the dramatic landscapes burst into colour in the South African spring, while off-shore you can enjoy whale watching between June and November.
