EUROPE
COOLER IN WINTER

001eurw2019

Summer gets the limelight but Europe shines all year round. Exploring Europe with us in winter means all the same incredible sites and experiences, but with a smaller price tag, fewer crowds and all the stuff you simply can’t do in summer (anyone for twinkling Christmas markets?). We even have European destinations that let you enjoy some warming winter sun. So, whisper it, but it’s true: Europe really is cooler in winter.

Traditional winter vibes

Crackling log fires, steaming mugs of hot chocolate, snowy skies and cute as a button Christmas markets. It’s fair to say Europe & winter make a beautiful couple.

Winter in Europe isn’t all about fresh snow and frosty markets. Travel to the right places (the Iberian Peninsula, for example) and you can catch some winter rays without the crowds or price tags.
