Memorable Half-term Adventures

October. It’s cold, and it’s probably raining. Those marginally drier summer days seem a light-year away. Half term usually proves a difficult time for mothers and fathers to channel the good parent deities and stumble upon the golden nuggets of inspiration which hold the secrets of fun.

The light nights are dwindling and images of those angelic faces, tired from a wholesome day’s playing outside, are but a sepia infused memory. As the free time looms, here at World Reviewer we’ve thought of a few experiences which we think will give you and your children a truly great half term.

For the Woodys and Calamity Janes out there, imagine the cowboy or cowgirls delight when they learn that they are spending seven days on a real life ranch, where guests learn to work cattle and participate in the day to day running of a ranch – from getting up at 7am to feed the livestock to penning or roping cattle in the afternoon.

For the cooler customer there is the option of a stay in Sweden’s Ice Hotel. Every year, the Jukkasjarvi Ice hotel melts to nothing and becomes part of the crashing, icy torrent that is the Torne River, but every autumn it rises from the riverbank again, carved from the frozen river water and endowed with every luxury that can possibly be constructed from ice.

If time spent on land is not enough to satisfy inquisitive minds, journey twenty thousand leagues under the sea on an adventure which includes diving and sleeping at Jules' Undersea Lodge in America – a former research laboratory, positioned for easy access to the edge of the continental shelf near the coast of Puerto Rico this makes an ideal holiday for experienced and non experienced divers alike. Rise from the depths of the lodge and begin the climb to a far, far away… The Ariau Amazon Towers Hotel sits 21 metres above the forest floor, amongst the canopy of the Amazon Forest, 35 miles from Manaus in Brazil. This is the largest commercial treehouse with over 4km of walkways that connect several lodges. It is reputed to be the oldest treehouse in the world and has been compared to staying in the ewok village.
