In Rovaniemi (Finland), you will meet Santa Claus in the flesh at the office in “Santa’s Village”.
This is a multi-lingual actor, always present in the office from 9am to 6pm to welcome visitors. You can also sleep in an igloo, experience the feeling of winter climbing, skiing or enjoy dishes made with attractive reindeer meat.
Prague (Czech Republic) becomes more and more attractive to tourists in cold winter days by the ancient romantic beauty of unique architecture. You can visit the ancient works such as the Prague castle, St. Joseph’s Church, Wenceslas Square, Old Town Square, stroll through the winding small streets, enjoy the romantic beauty by the river, check-in at dozens of bridges spanning the Vitava River. These bridges suddenly become more romantic in winter when night falls in shimmering light and covered white snow.
If you want a warmer Christmas, head to Canaria Islands (Spain) – an archipelago of seven volcanic islands in the Atlantic, off northwest Africa. These islands belong to the autonomous regions of the country of Spain.
You can comfortably bask on the beaches here, wait until Christmas Eve, enjoy traditional turkey. It sounds strange, but Canaria can give you a Christmas season without snow and absolute warmth.
Traveling to Palma de Majorca (Spain), you can also catch a warm Christmas season because the temperature here is always 10 degrees C higher than other European cities. During the Christmas season, the buildings in this city are decorated with sparkling lights. The Christmas market is the ideal place for you to shop for Christmas decorations, enjoy traditional Christmas dishes. You can also go to churches to enjoy the celebration activities here.
While others welcome the chilly Christmas season with snow-covered snow in other cities, you might be more comfortable in the Algarve (Portugal). During the day there is enough sunlight to tan your skin, you can do relaxing yoga on the terrace at the hotel. It was still cold at night, but not to the point of wearing a thick life jacket like in other regions.
