Holiday Destinations in December

One way to mark the end of a year and get recharged and ready for the next one is by indulging yourself in a little (or large) December vacation. It’s the perfect Christmas treat for your family or a way to escape with a group of friends, and with so many great destinations on offer there’s a place just right for you, whatever you’re into. Here are some picks to get you started.


There are many great holiday destinations throughout Egypt, which will allow you to choose from a trip spent with total relaxation or one that involves seeing some fantastic ancient sites. A week or two in the traditional tourist destination of Sharm el-Sheikh, where average temperatures in December reach a high of almost 25C, will allow you to develop a great tan. Meanwhile, Cairo offers all the wonders of ancient Egypt within easy distance.

Hit the Slopes

But for a true adventure holiday you should grab your skis or snowboard – or anything else you might want to travel on down the slopes – and head to one of the great European skiing destinations. The Arlberg Ski Circus in Austria is one of the largest ski areas in Europe, catering for everyone from experts to complete beginners. Only the stoniest of hearts would fail to feel a bit of the Christmas magic they felt as a child in such picturesque settings.

How About a Little Further Afield? Goa Perhaps?

If the thought of having to wrap up warm for winter feels too much like staying at home, and you’re looking for something stronger than the Egyptian sun to get you hot under the collar, how about the Indian tourist hotspot of Goa? While temperatures get below freezing back at home you’ll just be worrying about reapplying the sun-tan lotion on some gorgeous beaches as temperatures hover above 30C.

Escape the Humdrum of the UK

There’s no better time to escape than December, when Britain experiences its darkest days of the year. A holiday to a beautiful destination abroad can leave you feeling revitalised, whether from having some much deserved me-time relaxing next to the sea or getting the blood well and truly flowing on an adventure holiday. What's more, if you plan it well, you can escape the manic lead up to Christmas but actually make it back for the good part of December - the festivities of Christmas!

  12. I believe December is the best season to travel and explore new places. The weather remains comfortable in most of the countries. I love to travel solo because it gives me the confident to handle any type of situations I face in my journey. One of the most important thing of traveling distant places is the accommodation. It's always a better decision to book hotel rooms prior to your visit. You would get the right kind of accommodation according to your requirement as well as in a fair price.
