Visit | Posted by Super Trooper Permalink

Planning a group holiday often involves a lot of work. Juggling deposits, making sure everyone is happy with your choices and finally getting everyone to the airport on time. But once you arrive at your chosen destination accompanied by your closest friends, it all seem worth it. Follow these tips and you’re sure to have the holiday of a lifetime.

Choose group-friendly accommodation

Don’t rely on package deals or hotel buffets! Craft your own holiday by booking a villa and deciding how you want to spend your break. Whether you want to eat out at a restaurant or cook up a storm in your holiday villa, you’ll have full control over the activities you take part in while you’re away. Plus, staying in a villa means that you and your friends can take part in different activities without worrying about not spending time together. Spend the day doing your own thing and meet everyone back at the villa in the evening – problem solved.

Pick your perfect destination

When you’re going away with friends, your destination has to cater to a lot of needs. Your friends might like partying all night or scuba diving or they might all have completely different interests! How can you pick a destination to suit them all? Simple! Pick a hot, sunny destination with plentiful beaches and a whole bunch of extra activities to take part in and you’re sure to tick all the boxes. Lanzarote is a perfect example of an ideal group holiday destination. With lots of accommodation choices, plenty of group activities to choose from and even more sunshine to enjoy, Lanzarote is certainly a winner.

Discover group activities in Lanzarote

As Lanzarote is a beach destination, the water activities on offer on the island are second to none. Choose between scuba diving, kayaking, wind surfing and more! For confident sailors, there’s the opportunity to rent a yacht for a few hours or a full day. Prefer something that doesn’t involve getting wet? You could take a group trip to the otherworldly Timanfaya National Park. Once the site of over 100 volcanic eruptions, the area is still incredibly hot and dry. Eat at El Diablo and you’ll be served meat that’s been grilled using geothermal heat.

Create an itinerary

Once your holiday is booked and decided upon, it’s time to create an itinerary! When you’re travelling with a group, an itinerary can help to organise everyone and make sure that nothing gets forgotten about. Take a note of when you need to be at the airport and any other important details such as where your villa keys will be and plan around these events. Once that’s out of the way, make a list of the fun stuff such as the main attractions that you want to see. Be careful not to make your plan too specific or you’ll end up rigidly sticking to your itinerary rather than enjoying your break.
