Christmas & New Year Tours


Nothing quite compares to the European approach to the festive season! The best winter breaks are enjoyed when yule logs and mulled wine appear on the scene - whether it's a traditional carol concert in a beautiful English cathedral, exploring sumptuous Christmas markets in Europe or celebrating New Year with the Scots over Hogmanay, there's something for everyone on our Christmas and New Year tours!

European Christmas markets are possibly the biggest highlight of any Christmas and New Year break in Europe, where you'll find the most incredible range of hand crafted gifts. The tradition started in Eastern Europe, in the old towns of Germany and France, where the timber buildings and cobbled streets add to the magical atmosphere. The festive season truly is the best time to get an authentic taste of European culture and enjoy affordable UK winter weekend breaks.

Travelling by coach is the best way to get the most out of Christmas and New Year's holidays in Europe as you can city-hop without the stress of organising transport in places you don't speak the local language. The expert tour leaders at Expat Explore will make sure you get to see the best markets as well as soaking up the local culture and organising a memorable night to see in the New Year. Join us for a Christmas and New Year tour on one of our Europe winter breaks and you'll wonder why you ever stayed home over the festive season before!


Celebrate Christmas in Israel & Jordan, in the places where the Christmas story first took place. This festive tour has it all - religious significance, culture, tradition and beauty. And when you add the Christmas festivities you’ve got the perfect Middle-Eastern Christmas tour!
