Winter Culture Adventure Holidays

Top four winter cultural trips

Winter in Transylvania: This feels like how other parts of Europe might have felt decades ago. Still steeped in rich tradition, the architecture, particularly when dusted with a layer of snow, looks like a scene from a storybook. Mountains provide the backdrop as you explore traditional Christmas markets, Saxon villages and medieval buildings. 

Stockholm & The Baltics in Winter: Visit Sweden, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania on this Baltic adventure, exploring traditional Christmas markets as you go. Meandering through this magical corner of Europe, you’ll see fairytale old towns and capital cities. Guests love relaxing in the crisp, clear air as they sail across the Baltic sea before heading onwards to historic Riga. 

Moscow to St Petersburg: This week of winter culture will take you to some of Russia’s most notable sights, along with its less-explored gems. As well as Moscow and St Petersburg, we stop in Novgorod, Russia’s oldest city. With fewer tourists and an authentic vibe, winter drapes a romantic veil over one of the country’s most important destinations.
