Winter is well and truly here! As the temperature drops many of us curl up beside the fire with a hot chocolate and dream of somewhere warmer.
Well, it doesn’t have to be a dream! At Whereabouts Holidays we have a whole host of awesome adventure holidays available over the winter period, many of which will send you to warmer climates.
So if you’re looking to try something new and escape the cold this year, here are just a few adventure holidays to beat the winter chill!
As you can imagine, Portugal experiences much higher temperatures than the UK or Ireland in the winter, peaking at around 16 degrees Celsius in January.
This is literally double the average temperature in London for the same month, so you can guarantee you’ll be much warmer on a walking holiday in Portugal!
Our Madeira Walking Week takes you to all the best scenery on the enchanting island – there’s a reason they call it the ‘Floating Garden’!
Stunning plant life and forestation as well as gorgeous coastal walks await you, even in winter time!
Plus the actual walking element of your walking holiday is sure to help you keep warm and build up a sweat!
So if a winter walking holiday in Portugal sounds like your cup of tea, this is definitely the adventure for you! Now booking for January 2020.
If you feel like getting you and your family active over the winter period, the island of Madeira has yet another cracking surprise waiting for you!
Unlike a walking holiday in Portugal, a multi-activity holiday makes the most of the warmer climate and incorporates various activities like kayaking, hiking, biking and more!
Selected sights you’ll get to see on this holiday include such locations as Ribeira des Cales, Machico Harbour, Porto da Cruz and other can’t-miss Madeira highlights. Make no mistake, you’ll be busy getting active but this holiday is a feast for the eyes as much as it is a feast for the body!
This is the perfect winter escape for those parents looking to bond more closely with their little ones and do away with distracting technology for a while!
Better still, you’ll be encouraging an active, healthy lifestyle and may even set yourself and your children on a path towards healthier living! Now booking for January 2020.
Looking ahead even further to next year’s winter chill, why not take a break from the dreary drudge of winter rain and sleet for something much more picturesque?
The Amalfi Coast in Italy is regularly recognised as one of the most beautiful destinations not just in Europe but in the entire world!
Regularly reaching temperatures over sixteen degrees in traditionally colder periods, Amalfi makes the perfect destination if you’re looking for both a major change of scenery and change of climate.
Our Amalfi Coast walking holiday will let you get up close and personal with the rocky hillsides the region is famed for, as well as stopping off at nearby classic Italian villages where to can experience traditional Italian architecture, traditions, food and drink.
You’ll have to wait a little while to take advantage of this Italian adventure, but it’ll be well worth the wait when you dodge the winter chill! Now booking for November 2020.
