If you are tired of spending every Friday at the local pub, it’s time for you and your friends to shake things up with a group holiday. From all-inclusive resorts to adventure-packed destinations, there are loads of options to keep you entertained on your getaway. Take a look at a sampling of group holiday ideas for friends.
Who doesn’t love a beach vacation? Sun and sand. Surfing and swimming. You and your friends can hop onto a plane to Majorca, in Spain, for a budget-friendly holiday. You can find many all-inclusive trips to resorts such as Sol Calas de Mallorca, with your own stunning sea view, or Hotel More, which puts you ten metres from the beach. Your meals and drinks are taken care of, and you can find many activities, such as beach volleyball and live shows, to entertain you.
Perhaps you would all enjoy getting into warm waters in an icy venue. If so, then Reykjavik, Iceland’s Blue Lagoon, will entice you. The waters are wonderful for the skin, and between dips, you can visit Thingvellir National Park and Geysir, have a meal at the revolving restaurant, and look for unique souvenirs in the Reykjavik shops. You can take a helicopter ride over the city and then party with the locals until well into the night.
If you and your mates enjoy playing poker or slots, then casino vacations are perfect for you. Imagine heading to the Hippodrome Casino in London’s West End. You’ll find three floors of gambling, several bars, great food and a theatre for when you take a break from the 24/7 poker games. Spend the night out-bidding your friends in a private room, or stay several days in a nearby hotel and check out all the different games available. London is right outside the door, so you can see Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace and the London Eye when you aren’t doubling down.
If you and your friends are history buffs, check out Dubrovnik, Croatia, a city with historical sites and interesting nightlife offerings. Dubrovnik is a fortress town dating to medieval times. You can walk along its ancient city walls and see the Lovrijenac Fortress, a Franciscan monastery and Dubrovnik’s rooftops. At night, there is no shortage of bars from which to enjoy the sunset.
If you and your friends are active, check out the Great Wall of China. Choose from the 21,000 kilometres available, including a ten-day Beijing tour. Entrust your luggage to your tour organiser, and enjoy the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square. Take some Tai Chi lessons, experience local culture and speak to Terracotta Warriors. Tours offer hiking, biking, river cruises and cable car options, so you can be as active as you want.
Group holidays are a fantastic way for you and your buddies to see new cultures and bond over new adventures. You can find affordable trips, and tour operators that do all the organising for you. Book your trip today.
