Bonjour Dragana !

You could indeed say Je m'en vais pour les vacances. = I'm going away for the holidays.

I'd say it's less colloquially used in the past tense in this context, we'll tend to use partir instead:
Je suis parti pour les vacances.
Ils sont partis pour les vacances.

Bonne journée !

Hi Dragana, this is a question which is best answered by a native speaker.

Personally, I find it sounds OK.
