By Andrew Wilson


Planning a family vacation can be a little daunting, what with all the options, not to mention the individual preferences of the members of the family. Thinking of destinations that has something for the kids, for the teens, and for the parents is not an easy feat, but it is doable especially with planning. Now think of the same needs made more complicated by your intention to look for green travel destinations suitable for families; that is challenging. Despite the challenges, green travel for families is rewarding and all worth your effort.

Finding appropriate green destinations that offer activities that are suitable and fun for everyone is a task nobody would want to deal with, but needs to be done. These days, the challenge of meeting the family needs get easier with the increasing popularity of green travel and the growing number of green destinations. Given the prospect of another family vacation, here are some handy tips and ideas that you can use:


• Planning is key. The most important thing to planning a family holiday is doing it ahead of time. With so many resources available at your fingertip, planning can be so much easier. Use the Internet to discover great family destinations that can provide each member of the family fun activities. There is already a wide range of options for green travels even for families. Arrange early to get good deals for family packages in green destinations.

• Every destination can be green. There are more green hotels and resorts to choose from. Sustainable and responsible travels need not always be done in remote and far-flung areas. Find out great agritourism spots that have infinity pools, horseback riding, rustic cottages and farmhouses that have something interesting for the kids. Orienting the kids about green travel for families can teach the members of the families what each one can do and expect while on vacation.

• Start with a green hotel as base. Find a region where there are activities that the kids, teens, and adults would find interesting. Make sure that these activities are close enough to minimize use of transportation or will only entail a few minutes driving. It is unproductive to be traveling great distances that can diminish fun and will consume much gas. By the time the vacation is through, you do not want your kids only remembering the long boring rides they had.

• Trace family heritage. A good destination to consider is the place where the family or where the parents and grandparents are from. This is good for the children for them to understand their roots and meet other members of the clan. This can educate them too about their local history and heritage. This may even be cheaper with relatives hosting activities and get-together dinners and lunches.

• Consider vacation or holiday rentals. These are great options for traveling families of more than five members. This can be cheaper than staying in a hotel or a resort room or cottage. Vacation rentals can let you cook some of your meals and do your laundry. Rather than have all the meals served by the hotel or eating all the time in restaurants and trattorias, cooking some meals can lower your cost on food. This can even take to some local food producers or farms that can add fun to the experience while traveling sustainably.

Treading more responsibly on mother earth when traveling as a family makes you feel good. It offers great learning and rewarding experiences especially for the children whom you want to develop values about matters that are important in their lives. With planning and by taking time to make the kids understand the importance of green travel for families, you can reasonably expect your kids to grow as responsible travelers.
