Festive celebrations with a difference

Christmas at home with ham and turkey on the table is magical. But that’s no reason you shouldn’t deviate from tradition and make your Christmas break extra special this year by booking one of our spectacular Christmas and New Year holidays?

Join us on a Christmas and New Year celebration with a difference. Whether your ideal break is visiting Santa in Lapland, sailing down the Danube on a Christmas river cruise or making the most of the warm weather as you spend Christmas, New Year or both in the Mediterranean, Newmarket Holidays has the perfect escape for you.

Leave the cold behind 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.

Alternatively, 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 Bavaria. Gift your family with the perfect Christmas holiday and take a special journey beyond the Arctic Circle to Swedish Lapland, the home of Santa Claus.

Perhaps sail along some of Europe's most beautiful rivers as you discover Christmas markets and local festivities in some fascinating towns and cities.

Wherever you wish you celebrate the festive season, you'll be sure to find something perfect for you in our range Christmas or New Year holidays.
