Guided Christmas & New Year Holidays

From the Christmas markets of Munich to New Year’s Eve in Andalucía, our guided group holidays take the hassle out of the festive season. For those looking to combine a holiday with their Christmas shopping, our trips go to some of the best Christmas Markets around Europe. These are a great way to visit a new city and experience a taste of the local festivities at the same time. If you prefer to escape the commercial mayhem of Christmas time, we offer journeys to a selection of sunnier spots around Europe, where we’ll enjoy a relaxed Christmas or New Year’s holiday. Sample a traditional Italian Christmas dinner in Lake Garda, take a sleigh ride through the Austrian Alps or simply spend your holiday soaking up the sun in Malta. No matter what you choose, your holiday is sure to be one to remember!
