Christmas & New Year Breaks

Nothing gets people into the festive spirit quite like a well-deserved getaway. Over Christmas and New Year, Travelsphere has plenty of festive breaks on which you can relax, have fun and soak up the yuletide atmosphere. Whether you want an overseas extravaganza or a quieter getaway a little closer to home, we’ve got a holiday to suit you. And as an extra special present from us at Travelsphere to you, our high-spirited adventurers – we’ve thrown in an assortment of festive treats that we know you’ll love: delicious Christmas Day lunches, live entertainment, and a glass of fizz to welcome in the New Year to name a few.

From Christmas stays with all the trimmings to New Year celebrations where there’ll be dancing till dawn, we’ve got the festive season all wrapped up. Italy or France or somewhere further afield, Travelsphere can take you there and give you a Christmas or New Year to remember. We take pride in our handcrafted festive breaks, which are designed specifically so you can get the most from this most wonderful time of year. We pack as much as we can into the price of your holiday - flights and transfers, accommodation, world-class Tour Managers and a host of exciting experiences. And with smaller groups of 35 or fewer on all our Festive holidays, you’re guaranteed to be at the heart of the adventure. Treat yourself to a Travelsphere festive break and enjoy a celebratory holiday season wherever in the world you fancy!

Winter Escapes

Whether you want to get away from it all and escape to the sun or soak up the beauty of a glistening snow-covered wonderland, it’s all in our Winter Collection.

If you’re after a white winter, we offer a number of tours to destinations where snowy peaks and winter activities are the norm. Marvel at the Canadian Rockies from the comfort of Banff’s hot springs or experience the extraordinary Winter Festival of Lights at Niagara Falls. If you’d rather escape the cold winter weather, why not head to Egypt to uncover the treasures of the Pyramids and embark on a stroll through the Khan el-Khalili bazaar. Or perhaps visit the bustling city of Istanbul in Turkey and marvel at the beauty of the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sophia.
