Winter Holidays in Europe

Experience short days with breath taking star filled nights as you hunt for the northern lights in Iceland, try your hand at fat biking on Finland’s frozen lakes or husky sledding in isolated national parks.

During the months of November and December cities in Central and Eastern Europe come alive with colourful markets, charming alfresco bars and lively local festivals.

Ideal for a short break or a longer wilderness adventure, our nearest neighbours offer a wealth of wonderful winter experiences to enjoy.

    Northern Lights
    The magical sight of the glowing aurora dancing across the sky is something many of us dream to experience. The spectacular phenomenon can be viewed from September through to March in the Arctic Circle. Join a guided northern lights hunt for your best chance of catching the show, or a luxurious experience, stay in a cosy glass igloo in Finland or one of our unique hotels in Iceland offering Aurora alarms. Guaranteeing if the lights make an appearance, you'll be the first to know.
    Festive Markets
    Twinkling strings of lights line the tops of steeple roofed market stalls, the smell of sausages and chestnuts roasting and mulled drinks aplenty. The festive markets of Europe get bigger and better every year with late November and December becoming one of the best times to explore. Head to cities in Germany, Czech Republic and Hungary for the most traditional experiences, whilst capitals across the continent from Oslo to Zagreb have created their own individual twist on the festive occasion.
    Adventures in Ice and Snow
    From dog sledding to snowmobiling, snow shoeing hikes to igloo building, the winter wonderlands of Iceland and the Nordics are a spectacular sight. Wrap up warm and explore the pristine wilderness of silent national parks, visit ice caverns and frozen waterfalls in Iceland, meet Santa and his reindeer in Finland, or take a more leisurely approach soaking up winters beauty on a scenic train journey through the Swiss Alps.
