Christmas and New Year Holidays to Europe

When it comes to planning your festive plans this year, why not escape the traditional celebrations and head off in search of a perfectly planned winter holiday in Europe, where you can celebrate Christmas and New Year in style. There’s not a long-haul flight in sight and - bonus points here - the chances of having a white Christmas are significantly higher than back in the UK.

Our wonderful team of Europe specialists are on hand to create your bespoke, dream trip for Christmas and New Year in Europe. If you are looking for a picture-perfect White Christmas, Sweden definitely deserves a place on the list. From the festivities in snow-dusted Stockholm in the south of the country - complete with candlelit concerts in the city's Gothic Storkyrkan cathedral and cups of warming glögg (mulled wine) - to the epic snowy wonderlands of Swedish Lapland, this northern country knows a thing or two when it comes to Christmas cheer. Spend the festive season dog sledding, snowshoeing and watching for the Northern Lights, ready for them to grace the night sky with their dancing display. When your cheeks are rosy from the cold, retreat into the warmth and settle by the fire in your woodland cabin for a Christmas break you won't forget in a hurry. Of course, there is the ultimate winter adventure holiday, perfect for some festive fun - skiing. Take to the slopes to celebrate the festive period - cosy up in a charming chalet in The Three Valleys, skiing all day and partying all night.

Perhaps you'd like to ring in the New Year in style, during a cultural-filled city break - whether that's luxury hotels and private tours of the Louvre in Paris, or a snowy Christmas market-infused trip to Berlin. Festive spices fill the air, while tables sag under the weight of glittering festive fare spilling over the stalls, as candles dance under twinkling lights and you drink just one glass too many of Feuerzangenbowle. Sprinkled with hand-picked hotels, private tours and of course, our lovely Concierges - and you have yourself a Christmas and New Year break that you'll want to repeat every year.
