Top Winter Destinations for 2020
If you’re looking for some winter sun, then look no further than Cuba! This island nation is ideal for those looking to escape the harsh winter months, with temperatures reaching highs of 28 degrees. These incredible temperatures make Cuba the perfect location for a whole range of watersports and beach activities. Whether you’re looking to get your adrenaline flowing by windsurfing and scuba diving or if you’re wanting to just relax on the beach with a cocktail in hand. Cuba is world-renowned for its cigars, music and let’s not forget about that delicious Cuban Rum. The nightlife in Cuba is deep-rooted into the country’s culture, you can always expect to be welcomed into a fiesta with open arms!
Please note that foreign tourists can only fly into certain entry points into Cuba: Caya Coco, Cayo Cruz, Cayo Guillermo, Cayo Largo del Sur and Cayo Santa Maria. You will have your temperature checked on arrival and receive a PCR test if you test positive you will be hospitalised.
Germany is a winter wonderland, with temperatures reaching below freezing you can expect to see heaps of snow! Did you know that many popular Christmas traditions originated in Germany including Christmas Markets, mulled wine and advent calendars? For those looking to get into the festive spirit, Germany is the perfect destination for you this winter. Our top recommendation when visiting Germany in the winter will always be the Christmas Markets. However, with Coronavirus forcing a numerous amount of markets around the country to be cancelled this year, there are a handful available to visit this winter. Don’t worry there’s still plenty of winter activities including sleigh rides, skiing and all the bratwurst you can eat!
Please note that Germany has travel restrictions for visitors from “high risk” parts of the UK, travellers who haven’t recently visited these parts including Scotland, Northern Island, North West England, North East England, Yorkshire & the Humber and the Midland can visit without quarantining.
Adventure seekers and adrenaline junkies, Sweden is the place for you to visit this wintertime. Winters in Sweden are very harsh with temperatures dropping to as low as -30 degrees. Every region in Sweden has its own winter activities but what’s guaranteed is lots of snow. From skiing to ice skating, dog sledding to snowmobiling, there’s something for every traveller to try. If you’re looking for a chance to see the Northern Lights then head north to the Swedish Lapland, the perfect location for families with an extra special resident (hint: he wears a red suit!)
Greece isn’t typically known as a winter destination with most tourists visiting during the hot summer months. The winter months tend to be quieter, which means fewer queues to activities and more space on those sun-baked white sand beaches! The average temperatures in Greece during the winter reach highs of 14 degrees, it might not be the 30+ you’re expecting but we’re sure it beats the harsh British winter. If you’re looking to visit Greece this winter we recommend exploring the Ancient City of Athens, hiking around the beautiful island of Crete and experiencing the authenticity of the rural town of Peloponnese.
Please note that Mykonos is currently on the COVID restrictions list so you will be required to quarantine after your trip.
