New holidays for 2018/19
We’re excited about our new holidays for this coming season, and we hope you will be too.

Our very latest additions for this coming autumn, winter and spring include a rail journey linking Seville, Jerez and Cádiz in Spain, a superb hotel in the Italian Dolomites for cross-country skiing and winter walking, plus a thrilling journey by train and boat from Oslo to Bergen via the Norwegian fjords.

 

Travel by rail between Seville, Jerez & Cadiz
Jerez
South of Seville, light-flooded plains roll towards the sea. Silver-grey with olives and rich with the scent of oranges, this for many is iconic Spain – cradle of flamenco, home of traditional tapas and land of the great sherry bodegas. There’s time to enjoy all three pleasures while you explore Seville, Jerez and Cádiz as part of our journey by rail – as well as providing notes for self-guided city walking tours, we also list our favourite tapas bars and sherry producers.
Strike out through snow-clad valleys
 Winter holidays in the Dolomites, Italy
The Three Peaks of the Dolomites are to Italy’s South Tyrol what the Matterhorn is to southern Switzerland – an awe-inspiring landmark whose iconic profile dominates the views for miles around. With scenery of such majesty – a great backdrop for cross-country skiing and winter walking – snow holidays here are special, and you have the added bonus of staying at a superb hotel, the Drei Zinnen, with its exceptional levels of service.
CROSS-COUNTRY SKIING FOR ALL
Winter holidays in the Austrian Tyrol
First-rate hospitality is also the order of the day at the Hotel Kristall in the Austrian Tyrol, another great choice for a winter holiday featuring cross-country skiing and winter walking. While the region may be hosting the World Nordic Ski Championships in February 2019, there is something for guests of all abilities – indeed, the flat terrain makes the skiing particularly good for beginners and intermediates. Winter walkers are spoiled for choice, too, with beautiful trails that meander into Gaistal – one of Austria’s least-visited valleys – and up to the panoramic Wettersteinhütte.
Experience ‘Norway in a nutshell’
Naeroyfjord, Norway
If we had to pick just one highlight of our new Norwegian winter journey from Oslo to Bergen, it would probably be gliding silently along UNESCO-protected Nӕrøyfjord on a hybrid boat, gazing at the sheer-sided mountains. But there’s also snowshoeing across the remote-feeling mountain moorland around Finse, likened to an ‘Antarctica in miniature’. Or what about riding on the iconic Flåm Railway, or marvelling at the fjord scenery from the Stegastein viewpoint? Try this holiday yourself and you’ll see how hard it is to pick just one highlight from so many…
Tour northern Europe’s capital cities
Stockholm
The name of our journey by rail and boat across northern Europe, Nordic Cities Explorer in Winter, speaks for itself. The cities in question are Copenhagen, Stockholm and Helsinki, which, if they had to be summed up in one word, would probably be best described as cool, stately and trendsetting, respectively. They are, however, far from one-dimensional, and there’s plenty to discover in each, from Copenhagen’s world-class galleries and museums to the Finnish capital’s Design District and fusion of eastern and western cultures, via Stockholm’s canals and medieval district.
TWO BREAKS ROLLED INTO ONE
Helsinki
Helsinki is also the location for our newest Christmas market break. Once overshadowed by its better-known Nordic neighbours, this creative city is fast becoming one of Europe’s most exciting destinations and is a wonderfully atmospheric place to visit in the winter, when the streets are lit by thousands of sparkling festive lights and the squares are filled with inviting market stalls. From here, it's just a couple of hours by boat to the Estonian capital, Tallinn, and its popular Christmas market, set out around a huge Christmas tree in the medieval Old Town.
