Whether you would like to hit the slopes, explore a beautiful city or escape to some winter sun, we are here to make your winter getaway just perfect.

For some inspiration, take a look at some of our most popular winter destinations.

The ICEHOTEL in Jukkasjärvi is one of the most magical places in the world to stay this winter.

The ICEHOTEL has been rebuilt each winter for over twenty years. A journey starting from an Igloo of 60 square meters to the world’s largest hotel of ice and snow at about 5500 square meters.

Inspired by the river Torne, the cold artic climate, The Northern Lights and the Midnight Sun: The ICEHOTEL is not only a hotel, it is an ephemeral art project, cultivating many flavours of Swedish Lapland.

Inside the ICEHOTEL, the temperature is never colder than -5 °C to -8 °C, regardless of how cold it is outside. This is still cold, so wrap up warm!

Winter is a great time of year to explore a city, wrap up warm in the crisp cold air and see some of the best sights in Europe.

Take a look at our Top Destinations for some ideas.

Many cities in Europe become beautiful winter wonderlands over the festive period with sparkling lights, christmas markets and outdoor ice skating. A city break is a great way to embrace the cold winter months.

Here are 5 of the best outdoor ice skating rinks in Europe:

Christmas Markets

There’s nothing quite like the magical atmosphere of a traditional Christmas market to get you in the festive spirit.  There are many to choose from across Europe and here's a little taster!

Munich, Germany

Munich has had a Christmas market since the 14th Century and is held in the heart of the city centre. Amongst the classical Christmas gift ideas on display you will find that Munich’s Christmas market traditionally offers Bavarian Christmas gifts: from Bavarian Forest glassware and Oberammergau wood carvings to delicious treats such as Gingerbread and roast apples.

For the music lovers amongst you there’s a special alpine Christmas market concert held each day from the balcony of Munich’s town hall to celebrate the festive season. 

Germany is where the traditional Christmas market is thought to have originated from and Munich is just one of several that are definitely worth a visit. 

Bruges, Belgium

Known as ’ Venice of the North’, Bruges is a magical place to explore at Christmas with its criss-crossing canals, historic buildings, cobbled streets and horse drawn carriages touring the stunning medieval city.

You will find the Christmas market on the main Market square with an open air ice rink in the centre, surrounded by Christmas trees and festive lights.  You can easily spend the afternoon taking a stroll around the market stalls selling Christmas gifts, handmade crafts and of course world famous Belgian chocolates!

Whilst in Bruges over the festive season it is also worth visiting the snow and ice sculpture festival where you will be transported into a beautiful ice wonderland. 

Prague, Czech Republic

The Christmas markets in Prague create an enchanting festive atmosphere with hot food, mulled wine, Christmas carols and market stalls that light up the city centre. It is always an extra special time of year in Prague where Czech traditions are kept alive.

The main Christmas markets are held on the Old Town Square and the famous Wenceslas Square. The brightly decorated wooden huts in the market sell a variety of traditional Czech products including some great stocking fillers such as scented candles, Bohemian Crystal, hand-made jewellery, Christmas ornaments and traditional puppets! 

You will not be disappointed visiting Prague’s Christmas Markets… a beautiful winter wonderland awaits!

 

 

Dubai

The temperatures in Dubai from October to May make it an ideal destination for some perfect winter sun. Dubai is one of those must-see places, and the winter months are the best time to visit.

Also Known as the 'Red city', Marrakech is a city of diversity where the past meets the present: from the narrow streets of the old city, the Medina to the new modern European district called Ville Nouvelle or Gueliz. 

A beautiful city awaits: full of history and culture, bustling soaks (traditional Moroccan markets), friendly people and delicious food. With warm averaging temperatures of 21°C, winter is a great time to discover the wonders of Marrakech.
