Hibernating in winter? Not us.

There’s a certain kind of magic about a winter holiday. The crunchy snow, the smell of baked cinnamon and mulled wine, the cosy nights by candlelight. Or maybe it's the moment on an Iceland trip when you look up and see the Northern Lights dancing above you, or hike past huge crystalised ice flows in Colorado's Rocky Mountains. Whether it's a delicious grilled sausage at a Christmas market in Munich, snowboarding down fresh powder in New Zealand, trekking across Morocco's snow-dusted Atlas Mountains or blissing out in a steamy Alaskan hot spring, winter travel has some pretty epic advantages. Plus, there are way fewer tourists, queues are tiny and your holiday selfies will feature just you and the view. We think a winter tour might be on the cards…

Why travel in winter

Small group sizes icon

Smaller crowds

By travelling in an off-peak season, you’ll encounter shorter queues at major attractions and have more chances to mix with the locals. You’ll also alleviate some of the impact of high-season tourism on popular destinations and infuse some off-season support into the local community.

Great value icon

Value for money

Travelling in winter has many benefits, like cute puffer coats and big mugs of hot chocolate. But the benefits to your travel budget also shouldn’t be overlooked. Flights and travel experiences are often cheaper in off-peak seasons, meaning you can use your money to maximise your extras on trip.

Real life experiences icon

Real life experiences

Real life experiences are those moments when you know something special is happening. It could be whizzing across the snowfields of Finnish Lapland on the back of a dog sled, or floating through Venice's misty and (unusually) quiet canals. These unexpected moments are what travelling with us is all about.

Snow-dusted bison in Yellowstone National Park

Discover the wintery magic of Yellowstone

Travellers are awe-struck by Yellowstone's otherworldly thermal features, but even more so when snow blankets the park and makes the hissing geysers, bubbling mud pools and steaming vents look even more dramatic. Hike across crunchy snow, marvel at frozen waterfalls and look out for bison, elk and other wildlife as you traverse the snow-covered meadows of Lamar Valley.

Icy, snowy landscapes in Yosemite National Park

Explore Yosemite without the crowds

Yosemite might be beautiful in summer, but have you seen it in winter? With layers of brilliantly white snow covering the ground and evergreen trees guiding your way, seek out the park’s animal inhabitants – powerful bison, graceful deer, and muscular grizzly bears just to name a few – during the day and retire to your cosy Airstream accommodation at night. Active winter adventures don’t get much better than this.

A traveller admiring the northern lights in Iceland

When the sun goes down, rug up and go searching for the spectacular northern lights in all their colourful glory.
