Sunday drives and hikes in the countryside have been a part of Maltese tradition for generations, and the island's relatively untouched north is at the heart of it all. Now, Malta's first official nature park is set to celebrate its 10 year anniversary in style... and it's turning into an adventure park to do so!

On the 8th and 9th December, head over to Festa Natura for a weekend of active family adventures to celebrate a decade of The Majjistral Nature and History Park, which will be specially open to the public.
