Enjoy a perfect mix of activities and culture with your family. Experience a perfect combination of activities, leisure and culture with your family.

The island of Gozo is a little known Mediterranean wonder that is home to one of our most popular family adventures. Just half an hour from Malta by ferry, it showcases an extraordinary natural environment ideal for an activity-filled week away. We have made the most of our local connections and expertise to find the very best locations and activities in and around the island. With group sizes of no more than 24, you will enjoy a highly personalised experience.

All activities are included in the holiday price. You’ll have a guided boat trip around the picturesque coast, with the chance to go snorkelling and Mini B diving at some of the top scuba sites in Europe. The Gozitan cliffs offer excellent spots for rock climbing, while its many inlets are perfect for kayaking trips, both of which will be on the agenda during your stay.

Based in the north-eastern village of Xaghra, you will be close to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Ġgantija Temples, which at 5500 years old are amongst the world’s oldest freestanding structures. Gozo has been occupied by everyone from the Ancient Romans and the Arabs to the French and the British, with evidence of this rich history very much present in its lifestyle, language, and cuisine. The week will be filled with opportunities to learn more about the local way of life first-hand, whether sampling crafts or tasting island delicacies. This makes it ideal for families looking for that perfect mix of activities and culture.

Based at the rustic and welcoming Cornucopia Hotel, you will be within easy walking distance of the main town and will be able to make use of the hotel’s facilities, including its sun-soaked terrace and swimming pool.
