Shuddering at the thoughts of spending another Christmas break at home? Here are 5 ways to go rogue this festive season...
Because… A: Being cold and miserable is nobody’s idea of a happy Christmas. B: It doesn’t have to be this way. Sneak off to the Canaries and soak up some rays - a sunshine holiday is always a good idea.
With many of Europe’s twinkliest Christmas markets running until January – and crucially, DUSTED IN SNOW, a late December city break equals absolute treat.
We’re talking adrenalin-fuelled thrills. Think skiing and snowboarding in the alps. Fitness camps in Lanzarote and surf adventures in Fuerteventura.
Big man in red not doing it for you? Boycott Rudolph & co entirely and head straight for the exotic surroundings of Morocco. On 25th December, it’s business as usual in the souks of Marrakech and on the sand dunes of the Sahara. And not a mince pie in sight.
Get as far away from turkey sandwiches as possible with a detox break or spa weekend somewhere fabulous and remote. From Alpine spa resorts to sun-drenched yoga retreats, a relaxing winter holiday is just a few clicks away.
