If your kid has more energy than a can of Red Bull, book one of these fun trips
1.
Go For A Treetop Walk In Borneo
 
Kids who dream of their own jungle adventure should visit the Borneo Rainforest Lodge. Guides will take you into the jungle to discover tropical birds, orangutans, creepy crawlies and waterfalls. And you can spy most of this from on high when you take the Tree Top Canopy Walkway that’s 30-metres above the forest floor.
                       
2.
Try SUP In Thailand

If you are going to learn how to do stand-up paddleboarding, why not learn on a tropical island? COMO Point Yamu in Phuket has launched a beach club that’s on an island of its own. You’ll be whisked over to the island in a traditional longboat, where your kids can swim, kayak and SUP in a cordoned-off family area.

3.
Hike Through The Jordanian Desert

What could be more exciting than an Arabian adventure? Take your kids to the Feynan Eco Lodge where you can join one of their guides for a hike through the Jordanian desert. Get ready to feel like mini explorers as the team take you on a walk from the desert-like Dana Biosphere Reserve into the green Wadi Dana. Tots will have the chance to walk past Bedouin villages and spy their goats, discover natural springs and catch a glimpse of the birds that have made the reserve their home.

4.
Ride Through The English Countyside
 
Expect to see smiles a mile wide when you sign your tots up for the Own A Pony Experience at the Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire’s Equestrian Centre. Pony lovers aged from seven to 16, can take part in a half-day session that includes lessons on grooming and stable management as well as a 30-minute hack through the Dogmersfield Estate.
