We must have the best customers in the World. They have been telling us for years about all the great things they get out and do with their families and we thought it was about time the World knew about it. This is not a ‘Places to go with the kids’ resource in a traditional sense. There’s lots of good websites out there already that can tell you the opening times and entry costs into the many hundreds of attractions that there are across the country.

This is about real experiences, in real places, by real families who get out there in this magnificent country of ours and do stuff. Great stuff! Stuff that you will look back on and remember for the rest of your life. Places that you may never have thought to go, things that you may never have thought to do. Told by those who have been there and done it, and want to pass it on to inspire other families to do the same. These are our Little Trekkers Ambassadors. They lead the way ….

It's the Simple Things, Like a Stream, and Lots of Stones!

It's the Simple Things, Like a Stream, and Lots of Stones!

It never ceases to amaze me how much a stream or pond or lake, and a whole heap of stones to throw, can provide a whole afternoon of fun for kids.

Falling up Fells in the Lake District

I haven’t posted for a while as we’ve enjoyed a whole week’s holiday in the Lake District at half term and the rest of February has simply runaway from me. But our holiday has spawned some fantastic outdoor activities and memories for me to share here now.

What's More Exciting? A New Sledge or the Box It Came In?

What's More Exciting? A New Sledge or the Box It Came In?

It goes without saying, I wasn't suprised what the children were most excited about on the arrival of our new sledges...they tore into the box at such speed that I didn't even get a clear photo of it, proper action shots!

Sticks, Stones, Seats, All on the Way to School!

Sticks, Stones, Seats, All on the Way to School!

You don't have to go far to have an adventure, even the walk to school can be one! Almost every day whatever the weather we set off early for school, making sure there is ample time to have fun on the way, and reduce the stress involved in rushing because we're running late!

Ahoy Me Hearties

Everybody has heard of the pirates of the Caribbean but did you know we also have a band of buccaneers over here on the Wirral?

Another Swedish invention that has been popular in Norway for more than 100 yrs is the “Spark” or kick sled if you like.

Here is the Proof: Norwegians are Born with Skis on Their Feet!

Here is the Proof: Norwegians are Born with Skis on Their Feet!

Some of you may have heard the old saying “Norwegians are born with skis on their feet”. The medals we are winning in this season world championships in biathlon and cross-country suggests that this is not just an idiom!

Signs of Scottish Spring

Signs of Scottish Spring

I’ve been a bit quiet on the Little Trekkers blog recently because since Christmas our family has had one bug after another. Six weeks of runny noses, headaches, fevers, coughs and the sleepless nights that go with it.
