Adventures on Gozo & Sicily

Adventures on Gozo & Sicily Overview

Adventures on Gozo & Sicily from Activities Abroad is an activity holiday in Sicily (Italy) and the Maltese island of Gozo. Available from 19 May 2018 to 14 Aug 2018 this 15-day trip costs from £2045, which includes flights.

Leave mainland Europe behind and prepare yourselves for exciting island activities on this two-week Mediterranean getaway. You and the family will spend seven nights on Gozo in the Maltese Archipelago, followed by seven more on the Italian island of Sicily.

As far as destinations go, Gozo is a little-known highlight of this part of the world. It has an incredible natural environment, with excellent scuba diving sites and grand coastal cliffs, as well as a beautiful countryside – all this makes it perfect for outdoor activities. You can look forward to learning scuba diving from a PADI-certified trainer and trying out your skills in the sea. Back on the surface, you can enjoy views of the coast as you kayak together over the Mediterranean.

We have provided some free days, letting you and the kids explore the island at your own pace. The stunning cliffs of Gozo are definitely worth visiting, and we recommend adding a climbing class to your itinerary, which is a thrilling way to experience them – please see the 'Personalise' section for more information.

Gozo is also an island with a rich cultural history, meaning that it has many fascinating traditions. This holiday features a unique 'Eco Day', which takes you right to the heart of Gozitan life, showing you things like local trades and letting you sample some truly delicious homegrown food.

You will then take a short flight over to Sicily, where Italian culture meets a scenic island environment that has its own selection of activity hotspots. The whole family will love cycling through the Sicilian countryside, travelling past a pretty village and fields of fruit. No holiday on Sicily would be complete without a visit to the iconic Mount Etna – spend time trekking up its slopes like real explorers.

On Gozo, you will stay at the St Patrick's Hotel in pleasant Xlendi Bay. The hotel has a rooftop splash pool and jacuzzi and is close to a variety of restaurants and shops. The Arathena Rocks will be your hotel on Sicily, which has a splendid outdoor pool and terrace restaurant.
