In October, Visit Jersey hosted the winners of the 'Ultimate Fam' educational escape. With magical sea view settings at The Grand Hotel and L'Horizon Beach Hotel & Spa, the winners experienced why the island break is a memorable retreat to explore, without travelling too far.
The competition invited agents to be in with the chance of participating in the trip to Jersey, showcasing that Jersey is an island of rediscovery where landscapes are just waiting to be explored all year round.
With 48 hours in Jersey, the tour operators discovered how they could get the best out of a short break in Jersey. From exploring the golden orchards of La Mare Wine Estate to coastal foraging with Wild Adventures, and a visit to Jersey Zoo, the natural home for rare and endangered species.
The winners discovered an island that wears the traces of its past with an an abseiling adventure at Mont Orgueil Castle with Jersey Adventures and the true story of wartime Jersey at the Jersey War Tunnels.
The agents enjoyed an authentic taste of island life with a picturesque Fresh Fish seafood picnic on Gorey's long beach, lunch at the Seafish Café, curled around one of the island’s original harbours in the heart of St. Aubin, and took in the golden hour at St. Ouen with dinner at El Tico.
All guests completed a post-FAM evaluation survey, endorsing why Jersey is the island break:
"An amazing experience. Jersey really does have something for everyone. I will definitely be returning with my family. :)"
"I had a fantastic time on the Jersey Fam trip, the trip was well organised to offer a wide range of activities to suit all, overall I will definitely be recommending Jersey to my customers."
"Jersey, is a welcoming gem closer to France and with a charm of its own."
