Just back home from a week at the Ardeche centre. Couldn’t recommend it highly enough. First class food, even freshly prepared on the river bank. Brilliant. Instructors very knowledgeable and brimming with enthusiasm. Steve and Lauren caving – great. Rich( dick) homer kayaking super. And Becky on the decent – brilliant. Thanks again. Kids in bed, me soaking in the bath! Cheers Paul( the daft bald fireman).

It’s all about ziplining & kayaking today!
Today is another action-packed day of adventures and what a day this will be. Ziplining over the sea and kayaking in the blue waters of Malta…
Zip lines are great fun! Imagine standing on the edge of a steep cliff edge looking down more than 50m and below you is just rugged rock and the open sea. Secured by a harness and connected to the steel zipline by pulley, you anticipate the exposure and your body is full of adrenaline.
As you step away from rock you are suspended by the zipline as you literally fly across the cliff edge towards the other side.
Zip Lining is a safe activity that generates a lot of excitement and this is known in the area to be the fastest zipline in Malta!
The zipline speed can be controlled by your guide, so this is also suitable for young children of any age who can ride the zipline more slowly but daring teenagers or grown-ups can ride the zipline at full speed.
Where better to enjoy a family kayaking adventure than on the Mediterranean ocean? Our expert Maltese guides will take you all on a beautiful journey that suits the beginner and the more advanced. Enjoy beautiful blue seas and magnificent views as you learn to paddle and enjoy being on the water.
Day of departure
It’s time to go home…You’ll be transferred back to the airport by shuttle bus, ready for your flight back to the UK…

Reviews from Acorn Family
First time been with acorn at their Normandy campsite, it was BRILLIANT!! We both loved it , activities were great , food really tasty , staff fantastic . Met a great bunch of people.
My 5 year old daughter is still, 3 weeks later, talking about the paddleboard instructor (he looked a bit like David Walliams!!) who put her in the water to splash around, whilst I got chance to paddleboard. Awesome day! Thanks to him please, as otherwise I would have had to leave the activity as I did with kayaking. Much appreciated! Thanks to everyone. Faultless holiday. Perfect.
If you want happy, exhausted children then try this holiday. There was an excellent mix of activities and evening entertainment that we would not change and left my son wanting more
