Some good stuff is waiting for you just miles ahead!
So, without further ado, we bring to you some of our top picks on how to spend the upcoming Christmas holidays with these unusual Christmas getaways..
Chase the Adrenaline-Pumped Snowy Adventure
Big chunks of snow are usually the first thing that comes to everyone’s mind when someone mentions winter. I wonder why is that? Just kidding…
But no, really, if you are into winter sports and you just looove the vibe and adrenaline rush of skiing or boarding or whatever it is possible to do on the slopes today, then you just might consider booking your stay at some of the best ski resorts in your vicinity.
Of course, a budget may be the restraining factor seems prices seem to skyrocket when it’s this time of the year, but booking your stay way ahead can be a real lifesaver here. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy at all! You can spend your holiday on a budget and still have the unforgettable time and make lots of warm memories on chilly days.
Enjoy the Winter Solitude on the Mountain
Have all of you loving couples enjoying fruits of passionate love ever dreamt of spending a weekend in the big bungalow somewhere in the remote mountains? I bet you did!
Just imagine laying under the warm blanket beside the fireplace holding your loved one in your arms while looking through the window at vast snowy landscapes.
Sounds like you’re in some fairytale but maybe this Christmas you can make the fairytale come true. Both for you and your beloved.
Make sure to search for the best and coziest accommodations online where you can enjoy your solitude and get some rest from an everyday city life.
Make it a Tropical Winter Vacation
Of course, there are lots of us who just can’t bear with the low temperatures and the winter cold. Luckily enough, there is a solution for everyone.
Going somewhere warmer during the chilling days of late December and spending your holidays in your bikini is possible for you as long as the World is round.
Jokes aside, look after some bargain deals for getting away somewhere warmer (if you’re in the US, you may consider going to Mexico also). Once again, knowing what you want a couple of months ahead may save you lots of money on booking your stay and your flight.
Visit Santa Claus on Christmas
This is super interesting especially if you are planning a family holiday with your little ones. But, even if you’re still not parenting but you get overwhelmed with the Christmas spirit and want to lend a helping hand to Santa on his busiest day of the year, you can head to Finland and pay him a visit in his homeland.
The province of Lapland, just north of the Arctic circle is where all the magic happens. You can help Ms. Claus make holiday cookies or you can enroll in the Elf school and become a true Santa’s little helper.
One way or another, one thing is for certain – you will remember this Christmas for the rest of your life!
Hop on the Polar Express
If you happened to read this famous book or have watched the movie based on the book, you might as well wanted to recreate the famous Polar Express ride. Luckily for you, this is possible already!
As a matter of fact, there has been a number of companies and services offering Polar Express experience, you just need to search for the one that seems most affordable and reliable to you.
Make sure that everything is included: from warm cups of cocoa, original movie soundtrack and of course Santa being present on the train. Just one of many unusual Christmas getaways.
More to Come
We hope that we sparked your imagination just a little with these suggestions. Suggesting specific places to visit was on purpose, we wanted to leave the final decision to you.
Staying at your home and spending time with your family and closest friends is perhaps one of the most popular ways to spend your Christmas holidays, but we didn’t mention this option since it wouldn’t categorize as unusual right?
In the end, if you’re from the US, make sure to read through our earlier post regarding best places to spend winter in the States. Might give you an idea or two on the subject also.
Until further reading, stay well and have a happy and memorable Christmas!
