Many Geneva families are taking advantage of the two-week school Easter break by taking long haul vacations.

Local travel agents say many have jetted off to Japan, which is highly popular at this time of year because of the cherry blossom, as well as South America which is also a hit for those looking for more adventure.

The director of the Geneva travel agency, Tigre Vanillé, Hubert Vereecke, told the Tribune de Genève that it seems to be a trend that families take the opportunity to spend some time together – many trips cover three generation from children to grandparents. 

The canton’s Easter school holidays were lengthened last year at the expense of summer following a consultation with parents.
