HolidayParkSpecials have decided to give you some inspiration on the best destinations, activities and holiday parks this October Half Term. Have a look at our special offers for this Autumn and enjoy a fantastic holiday with the whole clan!
Cycling holidays in Holland
There’s nothing quite like a cycling holiday in the Netherlands. The rich and varied landscape is largely flat, so there’s no need for complicated gear boxes or any pre-emptive training. You can opt for forests, sand dunes and heathlands in the Veluwe, known for its national park and diverse array of flora and fauna. If you’d like to visit the traditional villages, tulip fields and windmills of North Holland, a cycling trip around the Ijsselmeer is highly recommended. Limburg is also an option, with its rolling hills, delicious cuisine and half-timbered houses. If you want a more relaxing holiday in the Netherlands, you can rent bicycles for one or two days and spend the rest of the week enjoying the immediate surroundings. Visit Duinrell amusement park, the Efteling or the bustling city of Amsterdam! We highly recommend a week at Duinrell holiday and amusement park. You have unlimited entrance to the amusement park while being close to the beach and surrounded by rich woodland.
Hiking in the Belgian Ardennes
The Belgian Ardennes, characterised by rolling hills, dense forests and picturesque villages are visually stunning in any season. The Autumn in the Belgian Ardennes, however, is extraordinary. Not only will you be rewarded by the peace and quiet after the summer crowds and before the Christmas markets, but the scenery is also spectacular. You can enjoy a relaxing family holiday in a cottage with spa facilities, or opt for a more active break and explore the area on bike or on foot. The Ardennes attracts a significant number of hikers and cyclists throughout the warmer months, and Autumn is no exception. One of our favourite holiday parks is Parc Les Etoiles, which has collected many awards from HolidayParkSpecials over the years! The detached lodges all boasts stunning views of the surroundings, and facilities include tennis courts, sauna, bicycle rental, outdoor swimming pool and entertainment programme. Jump on the ferry from Ramsgate to Ostend and enjoy a fantastic family getaway!
City trips in Europe
Autumn is the ideal time to see some of Europe’s best cities. There’s no sweltering heat to contend with, you won’t spend half of your weekend waiting in queues, and everything is significantly cheaper than in peak season. At HolidayParkSpecials, we have many holiday parks that are near popular cities. You can spend a week in a holiday park near Amsterdam, and enjoy both the city and its beautiful natural surroundings during your holiday. There’s nothing quite like the Vondelpark in Autumn. You can also rent a holiday park near Berlin, and experience the rich historical heritage of this bustling metropolis. Experience the best of both worlds on a holiday park near a popular European city.
