Leave behind the gloom and grey of British winter and escape to warmer climates on a winter-sun getaway. Take a break in the winter sun and unwind as you discover some delightful destinations.

Enjoy warm waters on a winter holiday to some of Europe’s most idyllic islands, or perhaps soak up the sun as you explore striking desert landscapes. Whether you want to head across the Mediterranean to Morocco, Turkey or the Middle East, or stay closer to home, our selection of winter-sun holidays are just the ticket for winter sun-seekers.

From the warmth and blue skies of Portugal and Spain, to the charming towns and mild climate of historic Malta, our winter-warming holidays offer plenty of relaxation, with the chance to get to know your chosen destination in the company of our friendly, knowledgeable tour managers. Stroll along seafront promenades and cobbled streets in temperatures a welcome few degrees warmer than at home on the Mediterranean, as you take in the delights of Aphrodite's island, Cyprus, or the sun-blessed Aegean coast.

Discover the ancient treasures of Egypt and take in a desert landscape that is home to nomadic tribesmen and fascinating ancient sites. Or perhaps journey through the pristine desert landscapes of Jordan. You might even consider a cruise and head south to the sun-kissed holiday isles of the Canaries for every chance of winter warmth and sunshine, or sail into the blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean to the floral paradise of Madeira.

Wherever you wish to bask in the winter sun, our selection of winter holidays offer warm getaways full of rest, relaxation and gentle exploration.
