Family Christmas

The Christmas break is one of the most popular in the travel calendar and many of the best places book up pretty quickly so it’s good to be organised.

Whether you're simply fed up with the cold, grey weather of December and in need of some winter sun or want to ring in the New Year in serious style en famille, we've got some great ideas up our sleeves.

While Christmas is famously proclaimed as The Most Wonderful Time of the Year, it is also one of the busiest, with presents to be bought, food to be cooked, guests to be entertained and parties to attend. So why not swap all of that for a vacation in the sun or snow as a family, where your biggest worry will be what to choose from the breakfast buffet.

Here at Original Travel we think there is no better way to spend quality time as a family than by going on vacation together, so with this in mind, celebrating Christmas on vacation as a family seems like a no-brainer. Perhaps even rent a private villa or lodge somewhere and bring the grandparents to make it an even bigger family affair.

If you want to guarantee yourself a white Christmas, head to Swedish or Finnish Lapland, where you can meet Father Christmas himself; or swap snow for sun and white-sand beaches in the Maldives or Thailand. Christmas is also a great time of year for a family safari, which can be perfectly combined with some beach time on the Indian Ocean coast. Our experts know all the best family-friendly places to stay over Christmas and New Year, and with a fair few years of family vacation experience up our sleeves, we really do know what we're talking about.
