If you like to improvise you are in luck. I have prepared for you 8 wonderful destinations you can travel to at Christmas. There is very little left for the holidays to arrive but, what has been said, if you like to do things without planning too much, it's time to start dreaming about these places that look amazing during these dates.
The European capitals They can be a good destination, since the flights are not excessively long and you can find quite affordable prices depending on where you want to go. Although there are other equally cool options. Let's meet some!
1 - New York
New York is a city of the essentials, and more at Christmas. Would you like to experience in the first person one of those movies in which the protagonists walk through snowy streets, skate outdoors or enjoy huge Christmas trees? So you have to go to New York and feel the magic of Christmas. Its lights, its windows, the decoration, the markets ... If it is your favorite time of year it will be a perfect destination.
2 - Disneyland Paris
If visiting the Disney world is already an experience, doing it at Christmas becomes even more unforgettable. Adults and children alike will enjoy the shows, of the decoration and of all the Christmas that you saw in this park. There is nothing more magical than living Christmas in a story.
3 - Strasbourg
Strasbourg is a city in northern France called “the capital of Christmas" You can imagine that it will be a fantastic destination for these days. Here they organize the oldest Christmas market in the country (dates from the year 1570) but there are more than 10 different markets distributed throughout several streets and squares of the city.
4 - London
London is another European city that I recommend you visit at Christmas. I was celebrating the end of the year two years ago and I have a great memory of that trip. Grab the grapes with the chimes of Big Ben, enjoy the New Year's parade London New Year Day Parade and its illuminated streets, Winter wonderland (the Hyde Park Christmas fair) and all the lighting on its streets and windows is a gift.
5 - Rovaniemi
Few things will be more Christmassy than traveling to the town where Father Christmas, Mother Christmas and their elves live. Rovaniemi in Lapland is a magic destiny that excites young and old and in which, in addition to knowing the work of Santa Claus, you can take a sleigh ride and enjoy the snow and incredible landscapes.
6 - Vienna
European capital with great christmas tradition; in fact it is considered one of the best destinations to travel during Christmas. In the Plaza del Ayuntamiento you will see the most famous street market in the city, with many stalls and a huge tree. In addition, in the Christmas Village located on Maria Theresien Platz there are also many stalls and attractions for the whole family to enjoy an unforgettable trip.
7 - Costa Rica
We forget for a moment about the snow, cold and winter to suggest a somewhat more atypical destination. But not for that less attractive. In Costa Rica you will live a Different Christmas: maybe in short sleeves and swimsuits. Enjoy its beaches and nature and celebrate these special days in a different way.
8 - Stockholm
Generally all European capitals are worth a visit at Christmas. Stockholm It is one of those that is decked out for the occasion. You can tour the Christmas stalls of Gamla Stan, the Christmas markets scattered around different locations in the city and visit the Christmas Market that they install in Skansen.
