Ideas for a unique winter sun holiday

3 minute read

If you’ve had your fair share of beach holidays, let us inspire you with our selection of unique ideas for a winter sun holiday guaranteed to make your next sunny escape stand out from the rest.

Cruise down the Nile

Perfect for those who fancy a touch of adventure, but still want to enjoy a relaxing winter sun holiday, a cruise down the world’s longest river lets you relax as the wonders of Egypt are brought to you. While away your days in Aswan, explore Luxor’s Valley of the Kings and wander through Karnak’s collection of temples, sphinxes and columns. Simply sit back, follow the river and immerse yourself in the history of the world’s longest living human civilisation!

Walk amongst volcanoes

The Canary Islands’ year-round warm climate and beautiful beaches have long made them a popular winter sun holiday destination. But, with volcanoes, canyons and vast seas of lava being as commonplace here as the sunshine, these islands have plenty to offer the more adventurous traveller!

For a winter sun holiday with a difference, venture off the beaten track and climb Montaña de Guardilama in Lanzarote, or walk through Fuerteventura’s Jandia Mountains, discovering deserted beaches as you go.

Witness an unforgettable desert sunset

No sunset is the same, but desert sunsets are one of nature’s most wonderful gifts. While there are many deserts to watch the fiery sun sink below the dunes, a drive through Namibia’s Namib Desert at dusk is like stepping into the sunset itself. Sit back and soak up the silence of the world’s oldest desert this winter – we promise you won’t be wishing you were anywhere else.

Discover tropical rainforests

If watching David Attenborough’s documentaries gives you itchy feet, get back in touch with Mother Nature this winter and take a trip to the tropical rainforests of colourful Costa Rica!

This is a country filled to the brim with an astonishing array of wildlife, from crocodiles, monkeys and sloths to toucans and tiny hummingbirds. Head into the heavens in Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve, a tropical rainforest 1,400m above sea level, or try your luck at spotting the elusive jaguar in Mistico Arenal Hanging Bridges Park.

Relax and restore in the Dead Sea

Lying 400 metres below sea level, the Dead Sea is well-known for its mineral-rich waters and health-boosting properties.

After a full-day tour of Jordan’s exquisite capital city, Petra, and the nearby Wadi Rum desert, a dip in these salty waters is just what you need. Relax and lie back, without needing a muscle to stay afloat. Or as a special treat, spend the day soothing and pampering your body in one of Jordan’s modern mineral spas. Whichever you choose, this is guaranteed to be a winter sun holiday to remember!
