  The new summer family holiday trip
We will be keeping many of the activities as they were, but now have a much bigger range of fun and amazing things to do. On most days we have an activity in the morning and then one in the afternoon. Some days we might have a free afternoon to swim or go for a visit to Lagos (a pretty coastal town)

The activities:
1) Sea kayaking: done on an estuary and is suitable for everyone..(full day)
2) Adventure walk: we do a short walk that takes in the a beach, good for a swim and a big lake when we have lunch and then walk back to the start. (half day)
3) Body boarding: head to the beach for some fun in the sun... again it is an activity for the whole family.....(1 or 2 x half day)
4) Climbing: a little introduction into climbing, learn some basic climbing instruction including using gear, tying knots( one hour after the day is up), then a chance for every one to try...the climbing is easy.. you do not have to leave the ground if you don´t want to. (half day)
5) Some easy abseiling, (half day)
6) Weather dependent, a trip on the kayaks along the sea cliffs, swimming stopping on hidden beaches and a picnic lunch on the the beach. (full day)
7) Boat trip to the most SW tip of Europe. This is an afternoon trip and it is possible to sometimes to see dolphins. (late afternoon)
8) Archery: since we have a very big field our children have decided we must do archery, so we will do a session of archery. (filler activity)
9) Art class: last year added this as a fill in - it was such a success with both adults and children that we added a half day for this fun class, we escape the sun, for a bit of shade and art. (half day)
10) Farm experience: time spent on the farm, collect eggs, pick fruit, colect tomatoes or beans, maybe even plant a tree. (filler activity)
11) Field games: depending on age groups of children we have various games and challenges we do (parents - in or out) (filler activity)
12) Night walk: bring your torches headlamps...we are going up into the mountains on a night walk to find all those strange animals we read about in the books...(parents, in or out!!)
13) Lake swimming and paddling (filler activity) often.
14) Trip to the point to watch the sun go down....with a glass of wine and something nice for the children. A lot of the trip planning happens the night before... days are planned around the weather, sea conditions and safety and wellbeing of all involved.
