Festive and New Year Tours

The festive period is a very special time to travel, whether you’re dreaming of a magical escape to a snow-dusted log cabin or a spot of winter sun without a Brussels sprout in sight. A short break visiting the atmospheric Christmas markets of central Europe is a great way to get in the festive spirit, while a trip north to Lapland to see Santa is a popular choice for families. Alternatively you might prefer a break from the cold and the winter gloom, and head to sunnier climates for a very different experience. How about a Christmas Day barbecue on a Caribbean beach, or seeing in the New Year with fireworks over Sydney harbour? There is a huge range of tours on offer over the Christmas and New Year period, with something to suit every type of traveller.
