Top winter holidays in the snow

For anyone who loves the beauty of winter, these adventures aim to transport you into the wilderness in destinations you might not have considered. We have put together a collection of snowshoeing holidays, multi-activity snow holidays, cross country and ski touring holidays and expeditions into the Polar regions. These small group guided winter holidays are perfect for solo travellers, couples, families and friends.


Snowshoeing adventure holidays

Stay active in winter by donning a pair of snowshoes. They’re remarkably easy to walk in, you don’t need any experience before your holiday and free snowshoe hire is included on all our snowshoeing tours. It's incredibly peaceful exploring a new place in snowshoes, as the blanket of snow naturally deadens the noise around you. You'll also be able to spend time guessing the animals living in the forests beside you from the footprints you'll see in the snow. Our best-selling snowshoeing adventures include:


Secret summits of the Haute Savoie

Mont Blanc Snowshoe Week

Snowshoe Travers of the Chablais 

High Level in the Pyrenees

Bulgaria Snowshoe Week



See the Northern Lights in winter

You'll need to travel north into the Arctic Circle for your best chances of seeing the Northern lights and with KE you’ll also be enjoying a thrilling adventure. For example you may be lucky enough to see the Northern Lights against a backdrop of snowy mountains and dramatic fjords in Norway on a Polar cruise. Further adventures that seek out the Northern Lights are:


Snowshoe Finnish Lapland Adventure 

Winter Activity Adventure in Finland

Winter Wonderland Family Adventure in Sweden



Try cross-country skiing

If you’ve never tried cross-country skiing before (sometimes abbreviated to XC) then it’s certainly worth trying our Italian short break in the Aosta Valley. We run different departures for different abilities, from complete beginner to improvers. It’s fully instructed and has a maximum group size of just 8.



Ski touring holidays

For us, this term encompasses our Nordic Skiing holidays; skiing holidays away from the downhill pistes and outside of the ploughed tracks of cross-country skiing. Whilst still using narrow skis with only the toe part of the boot attached, you’ll be traversing an undulating route which hasn’t been artificially smoothed out. You can try out ski touring on our Multi Activity Week in Finland - or if you're really ready to take on a truly epic challenge, look up our hut-to-hut ski touring journey along Sweden's Kungsleden Trail.



Multi-active snow holidays

Offering a true taste of all things winter, these adventures help you learn winter skills such as igloo building, fire building, ice-fishing and of course, all the fun things that snow enables; husky dog sledding, snowmobiling and snowshoeing. During our Finland Winter Activity week you can learn to build an igloo, snowshoe to a remote rustic cabin in the wood for a night lit by candlelight and enjoy an introduction to snow-shoeing.



Arctic and Antarctica holidays

For the most spectacular winter landscape, take on that once-in-a-lifetime adventure to one of the Poles. We have a collection of amazing polar expeditions to both the Arctic and Antarctic, all on small boats with expert guides on board.
