6 day out adventures for families in Jersey
From castles to dolphins, find inspiration for adventurers of all ages.
Walk along high wires in the trees and take on dizzying zip wires, abseiling and king swings at this forest-based adventure park. Big kids of all ages will love the adrenalin rush, and with activities for the not-so-fearless too, all the family can get involved.
Treat the kids to the chance to see dolphins and make memories that last a lifetime. Start with a RIB trip to far flung islands and reefs off Jersey’s coast and look out for wild dolphins that often swim alongside the boat, leaping in its wake. It’s an unforgettable experience however old you are. Try Jersey Seafaris for RIB trips with the chance to rub shoulders with wildlife.
Make history hands-on and give the kids the chance to be the king of the castle at one of Jersey’s three castles. From medieval Mont Orgueil with its gory past to Sir Francis Drake’s Elizabeth Castle and the castle ruins at Grosnez, put the adventure back into a history lesson with a journey through Jersey’s past.
Jersey Zoo gives you a chance to get close to some of the world’s rarest and endangered species. The conservation park started by Gerald Durrell in 1959 is worth a day of exploring, with orangutans, gorillas, lemurs and meerkats to name just a few, along with a café and an adventure playground for your little monkeys.
An activity-filled adventure centre with space to burn off energy outdoors, slides, go-karts, tractor rides and animals to meet and an indoor play area if the weather turns. Friendly and relaxed, here’s somewhere to keep active youngsters entertained and engaged all day.
Jump Jersey is the island’s newest and biggest indoor activity centre, with a trampoline park, climbing walls and soft play area for the little ones to spring into action. Think 'It's a knock out' meets 'Gladiators' with a laser light show and music thrown in for good measure. Big or small, this epic play arena will rock your world, with enough high-energy adventure and aerial action to earn you some serious parent points.
There’s no need to be bored this October half term, with so much to do nearby. Get the kids out, and explore new parts of our wonderful island, adventuring through the best there is to offer.
