Idyllic Destinations To Visit This Winter


When you decide to travel, what spurs on your choice? Is it the desire for new experiences or the calling of other cultures? Or maybe it’s something entirely different. When your hometown gets cold, dark and depressing, your wanderlust kicks up a notch, and you find yourself planning a vacation once again.

Winter trips can be as fun as they come, but they can also be varied. If you’re hoping to have an idyllic break this season, then take a look at the best destinations to choose from, depending on the kind of vacation you have in mind.

For The Kids

First up, what could be more idyllic in winter than a trip to a children’s paradise? If you have children, or there are small children in your wider family, a visit to Disneyland Paris would be just what you’re looking for this winter. Even if you’re yet to start a family, it can be a place that adults can enjoy as well as kids.

For Tradition

Sometimes, at Christmas or during the winter months, you just want a good old dose of tradition. And where is more traditional than London? Whether you’re excited to do the whole tourist thing or take it easy by eating, shopping and sleeping, the UK’s capital city has you covered. Just be sure to be prepared for the London weather in winter and pack suitable essentials.

For Winter Sun


Sometimes, the only thing that can tick off your wanderlust wants during the colder months is a massive dose of winter sun. And where else would you head for winter sun than the Caribbean? Not only do you have a whole load of islands to choose from, but you can find a range of villa rentals that suit what you’re winter sun needs.

For Magic

In winter, the excitement of Christmas can be infectious. When this happens, sometimes staying at home just isn’t enough. You want to search out an experience so festive it can only improve the magic of the Holiday season. And, it’s not hard to see why heading to a beautifully cold country is just so much better than being stuck in one that is dark and depressing. At times like this, a visit to Lapland or planning to see the Northern Lights could bring the magic of winter alive.

For Everyone

And finally, when you’re thinking of planning a trip that everyone in your travel group will love, you need somewhere that can suit a range of tastes and requirements. Say you’re booking a vacation with an extended family or a large group of friends. You’re going to want a variety of activities, food choices and sights to see. And that is what New York City gives you. In NYC, adults, kids and the elderly can find something especially for them. And New York in winter is a picturesque sight.

So just when you think of booking a vacation that you’ve been on hundred of times before, think again. By picking out the exact reason for your travel and knowing who will be coming along, you can plan the perfect winter vacation that everyone can enjoy.

I know what it's like to go from being a crazy backpacker without a care in the world, via being a vaguely sensible parent to being an adventurer once more. In other words, evolving into a Grown-up Traveller.

Like everyone else, I love to travel, have visited a lot of countries and all that but my big thing is Africa.
