Winter vacation inspiration
You’ll see another magical side of Europe in winter, with twinkling lights, cozy feasts and stunning snowy landscapes. Europe is well worth a visit in winter, with plenty of experiences you can only have during the winter months. See the Northern Lights in Iceland, explore the Christmas markets in Europe or go skiing in the Alps.
Most of Europe is covered in snow during winter, but you can still chase the winter sun. The best warm places to visit in December and January are Greece, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Malta and Cyprus, with temperatures usually hovering around 68°F. You’ll miss the summer crowds and it may even be warm enough to swim at the beach.
Visiting Europe's Christmas markets is a magical way to spend your winter vacation. The best Christmas markets in Europe are found in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Moscow in Russia. You’ll discover enchanting fairy lights, festive food, handmade crafts and a beautiful blanket of snow. Get cozy with a mug of hot chocolate and join in the Yuletide cheer.
With so many different winter travel experiences, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Europe comes alive with the Christmas markets, while Iceland dazzles with the Northern Lights. Explore the beautiful landscapes of England and Scotland, or chase the winter sun to warmer destinations like Italy, Spain, Jordan, Morocco, Egypt, Israel, Thailand and Vietnam.
