While Europe boasts some picturesque snow-covered ski resorts in winter, for sunshine, look towards the Mediterranean. Think Greece, Cyprus and Malta, which all have sunny skies throughout December. The Canary Islands also have great weather all year round.
What you should take depends on where you’re going. If you’re heading somewhere sunny, be sure to take your swimwear, favourite hat, sunglasses and SPF. For an action-packed winter holiday where the weather might be cooler, check the forecast and remember to pack appropriately. Because some sunny destinations experience a cooler sunshine, it might be a good idea to be prepared with a raincoat or a jumper in case the weather dips in the evening.
The winter break usually takes place over two weeks between late-December and mid-January. This is a great time of year to go on holiday so you can take a break and relax. This is also an opportunity to go away with family if you have children that are enjoying their winter break from school.
