A bit of winter wanderlust for your Christmas wish list. Four festive destinations to give you that warm, fuzzy feeling...
Oxford Street looking Christmassy



If ever there’s a time to curl up in a cosy cabin covered in snowflakes, it’s at Christmas. This season, Nordic travel specialist, Discover the World has launched a selection of blissful breaks for snowy celebrations. Iso Syöte is a small resort perched on a hilltop within the Syöte National Park – a place of fine beauty – particularly at Christmas time. Spend some sweet family time in a stylish hideaway with winter amenities aplenty – including skiing, snowmobiling, husky sledding and ice fishing. Plus, there’s a good chance you’ll get to see the Northern Lights in this enchantingly remote location.





Make The Langham your base for a winter weekend in London – with added luxury. This place is something special. From the dapper doormen serving mince pies and mulled wine, to the warm welcome in the Club Lounge, you’re made to feel right at home for weekend festivities. Providing an expert, personalised service for over 150 years, this landmark London hotel is as luxe as it gets – and oozes British charm and character. A plush Marylebone pad just moments from the hubbub of Christmas shopping on Oxford and Regent Street. After hitting the shops, retreat back to the hotel’s Chuan Body + Soul spa – a hidden gem tucked away beneath the rush of London life at Christmas. Pure bliss.





The Big Apple is a city that sparkles day and night throughout the holiday season and we’ve got you covered when it comes to uncovering an authentic Christmas in New York City. First things first, register with LOCALIKE and team up with a New York native, who will be able to create a bespoke itinerary for all your festive needs. Everything from flea markets and secret speakeasies, to festive carol services and ice rinks, there’s plenty of exploring to do in NYC at Christmas. Make AKA’s Central Park site your home for the weekend and you’ll be in the perfect position to see the city sparkle with season’s greetings. Check out Macy’s Rockefeller light show, pick up a cup of roasted chestnuts as you stroll through Central Park’s frosty paths and book a seat to see the Radio City Rockettes – a fond favourite for kicking off the festivities. There’s no place quite like it at Christmas time!





Make the Waldorf Astoria your home for a beautiful winter getaway in Berlin. The hotel itself is as luxe as it gets, and guests can expect a warm, Waldorf welcome. Situated close to the cosmopolitan shops, theatres and restaurants of Berlin, it’s a great place to rest and retreat after a day browsing the enchanting Christmas markets. The Bröhan Museum Market is a must for treats and trinkets made by Berlin locals, and the Weihnachtsrodeo is the place to be if you want to eat, drink and be merry. For those iconic festive city shots, visit the Alexanderplatz Funfair, where you’ll find a Christmassy carousel, a ferris wheel, haunted house and more. Fun for all ages.
