Family Hiking and Getting Outside

Getting outside as a family is really important. Not only are there the obvious health benefits, but it’s also a chance to bond as a family as well as teach your children and broaden their horizons.

It doesn’t matter if it is a stroll down to the local park or you have sights on bagging summits, hiking and getting outside can be as gentle or strenuous as you want.

We’ve pulled together a number of tips for hiking with kids, from enthusing them to get outside, to choosing the right gear to avoid people getting cold, wet, and miserable.
