We are delighted to share this news with you today… we have just won the One for the Kids (family experience) award at the National Geographic Traveller Reader Awards, in association with Audley Travel.
Wow, we are so chuffed to report that we have just scooped the One for the Kids (family experience) award at the National Geographic Traveller Reader Awards, in association with Audley Travel.
The awards ceremony, which took place at The Montcalm Hotel in Marble Arch, London on Wednesday night, showcased industry innovation and expertise from attractions and destinations across the planet, from Snowdonia to Antarctica, China to Patagonia.
Regarded as the last word on the best places, experiences, hotels and operators which go ‘above and beyond’ to make travelling meaningful and memorable, the National Geographic Traveller Reader Awards celebrate the best new additions to the world of travel.
Candidates are shortlisted by judges, and then readers of the National Geographic Traveller are asked to vote for their favourites. Adventure Parc Snowdonia beat off competition from The Bear Grylls Adventure in Birmingham and Tiger Lodges Reserve in Kent to win in its category.
It’s such a big honour for us to be recognised by the National Geographic Traveller and its readers in this way, and we’re grateful to everyone who voted for us.
The award is testament to the exceptional work of our dedicated team who are passionate about delivering engaging, family-friendly experiences to encourage and celebrate the instinct for challenge and adventure which is in all of us.
