Christmas & New Year Holidays

Festive celebrations with a difference

Christmas at home with turkey and crackers at the table is all but magical. But why not break the tradition and make your Christmas break extra special this year and enjoy one of our spectacular Christmas and New Year holidays?

There’s nothing quite like a chilly evening spent strolling through a traditional Christmas market in Europe’s festive cities. Indulge in all things Christmas as you sip on spiced mulled wine against backdrops of quaint town squares, baroque palaces and enchanting castles. Embrace the cold of the festive season and admire the snowy landscapes of the Austrian Tyrol or take in the Alpine paradise of fairy-tale Bavari. Gift your family with the perfect Christmas present and take a special journey beyond the Arctic Circle to Swedish Lapland, home of Santa Claus.

Escape the cold and soak up some winter warmth in Spain’s Costa Brava, or set off on a Christmas and New Year cruise to the balmy Canaries. Leave behind the stresses of the festive season and retreat to the peaceful shores of the Italian lakes.
 Whatever you fancy experiencing this festive season, a break abroad over this joyful period will be truly special.

Come with us for a Christmas and New Year celebration with a difference. Whether your ideal break is dashing through the snow on Santa’s sleigh in Lapland, sailing down the Rhine on a Christmas market cruise or making the most of the warm weather on the Mediterranean, Newmarket Holidays has the perfect holiday for you. We have a selection of Christmas markets, from Berlin’s glittering markets to the wooden stalls of Tallinn’s Christmas market.
