Christmas With a Twist

Christmas With a Twist

Spare the turkey, break with tradition and spend Christmas abroad this year.

Stride forth and enjoy a convivial guided walking holiday – with all the trimmings – to some of the most exotic, tantalising and beautiful destinations in the World with Ramblers Worldwide Holidays including Crete, Jordan, Morocco, Sicily, Turkey, Siena and Florence, Malta and Gozo.

You’re spoilt for choice!  Here are the details of just two of the holidays on offer this Christmas and, as you will see, they offer much more than simply walking off the calories!

October may have been the warmest ever recorded but weather forecasters predict a good old-fashioned cold and bitter winter in the UK.  So, why not spend the festive season basking under a tropical sun in glorious St Lucia with its shores washed by both the Caribbean Sea and Atlantic Ocean.  One stays in the superior rooms at the Bay Gardens Inn Hotel in Rodney Bay close to Reduit Beach – one of the loveliest on the island.  Highlights include, walking through the lush vegetation of the Descartier Forest Trail; the invigorating climb to the summit of Gros Piton; the bustling town of Castries with its fruit, meat and spice markets and the seaside town of Soufrière – the oldest on the island.  Price from £3,050 per person – departs 21 December 2014 for 15 nights.

And by way of complete contrast, what about a festive break in Europe combining  Dresden & Berlin  – an 8 night, four-star break beginning in Dresden – Saxony’s stunning capital – and the capital of Germany, Berlin.  Highlights include Germany’s oldest Christmas Market in Dresden called Striezelmarkt; Fraenkirche; Preidenkirche and Fürstenzug; the Old Masters picture gallery and Semperoper.  Highlights in Berlin include the spectacular, traditional Christmas Markets like the one at Charlottenberg Castle and the Gendarmenmarkt.  Price from £1,399 per person - departs 24 December 2014.
