Intro

With the days short and temperatures struggling to get into double digits, the Christmas and New Year period can be the perfect time to head to warmer climes. Fortunately we have an exciting range of destinations which make for the perfect winter getaway.

The Indian Subcontinent ticks almost every box during this time, where you can roam through ancient cities in Rajasthan, track rare wildlife on a safari or retreat to tropical beaches in southern India or Sri Lanka.

In Latin America, Colombia is a year-round destination boasting two coastlines, the Pacific and Caribbean. You can explore colonial cities, sip coffee straight from the plantation in the famous 'Coffee Triangle', wander around pre-Columbian ruins in San Agustin, and experience the lesser-known Festival of Blacks & Whites (Carnaval de Negros y Blancos) in Pasto.

The weather in Cuba is also good at this time of year, and few countries in this part of the world match the timeless charm of its colonial cities, sublime coastlines and natural beauty. The chance to stay in private casas (homestays) also allows you to get an insight into the real Cuba and meet the people who make this country so special.

Ethiopia offers the unique chance to experience a second Christmas in early January as the country follows the orthodox Christian calendar. Our Festivals of Ethiopia trip takes in this festival as well as Timkat, where Ethiopians re-enact Christ's baptism, and is the biggest festival in the country. The tour also visits the iconic sites of northern Ethiopia including the magnificent rock-hewn churches of Lalibela, the Blue Nile Falls, medieval castles in Gondar and the majestic Simien Mountains, home to the endemic gelada baboon.

These are just some ideas of places you could travel to over Christmas and the New Year. To discuss your winter travel plans in more detail, and if you would like to join a group trip or prefer something more tailored to your requirements, please contact us and we would be more than happy to help.
