The Autumn/Winter seasons are approaching and I’ll be sad to see the UK sun leave. The fun doesn’t need to stop there. Here’s a list of 4 great city break destinations where you can relax, explore and so much more.


The beautiful city of Reykjavik has everything you need to make the most of year after summer has passed. If you visit between September and April, then you have a chance of catching sight of the mesmerising Northern Lights. If that’s not enough then you can experience the relaxing mud pools, beautiful glaciers and stunning waterfalls.

For those that are interested in the outdoors, you can go on a hiking trail or test your limits with some mountain biking. There’s so much to see and so much to do that will make the colder seasons memorable. Take a dip in the fabulous blue lagoon before relaxing in one of the many beautiful accommodation options in the heart of Iceland.

Sightseeing in the Hungarian capital of Budapest is a sensational experience for winter travellers. You can take a relaxing river cruise on the Danube, or if you want to explore more architecture, then the Hungarian Parliament Building and the beautiful Hungarian State Opera House are brilliant choices.

Are you ready to soak all your winter worries away? The tranquil thermal baths in Budapest range from 26° for a cooling bath to 40° for a hot bath. You can cleanse yourself from head to toe in the luxurious steam rooms and on-site massage services.

If you’re seeking an adventure filled with culture then Amsterdam should definitely be on you autumn/winter bucket list. Take in the scenes as you stroll along the infamous canals or take the weight off your feet in one of their many welcoming coffee houses. Amsterdam is filled with so much to do and so much to see that you won’t be disappointed.

As temperatures fall in the autumn/winter months, Amsterdam focus on indoor events such as Da Bounce Urban Film Festival and Amsterdam Art Weekend. There’s an array of museums and galleries to feed your minds with all the substance you seek, and exploring the dazzling flower markets will be a great experience for any winter traveller.

The festive season is always a great time to travel. Vienna offers some of the most spectacular Christmas markets which open from mid November to give travellers enough time to shop. The stunning architecture is a sight to see, with the Vienna State Opera House and the Gothic St Stephens Cathedral being among favourite places to visit.

So where will you end up this year? I’ll be heading out to Amsterdam and will be writing up a full blog of things to do and places to see.
