A winter holiday doesn’t just have to mean skiing. There are lots of other options for a winter snow holiday. So if you have never tried a winter break before read on and you might just be packing your jumpers and thermals sooner than you think
See A Destination in a New Light
The winter months are generally quieter to travel during than the busy summer. You can explore a destination without fighting past large tour groups all trying to take the same photograph. There is nothing more likely to get you in the festive mood than a scenic snow covered landscape. Gaze out over beautiful snowy mountain peaks or explore a traditional Austrian village whilst enjoying a warming cup of hot chocolate.
There are lots of city breaks that provide the perfect festive break option. Magical Sweden or the Czech Republic are both fantastic winter destinations. Pay a visit to one of the traditional Christmas markets in Prague to pick up a few presents and try Tredelnik’ the delicious sweet bread that is seemingly everywhere, or perhaps sample a few glasses of Glgg in Gothenburg while wandering around the stalls.
Spoilt for Choice
There are lots of winter holiday destinations to choose from. Prices can be lower in winter, making it easier and more cost efficient to plan last minute trips. From the grandeur of the Alps to the wild drama of the Northern Lights in Iceland, there are lots of options. Once you’ve picked your destination of choice, your next decisions might be narrowing down which activities you want to take part in. From ice-fishing, to cross-country skiing and even dog sledding there are lots of fun snow past times for you to try your hand at.
