Top Five Winter Escapes from

Oct 24

The harsh chill of winter is setting in quickly and people across the UK are preparing to jet off and beat the heat (or lack thereof!) or just experience something new.

As ever, we at Compare4Deals are thrilled to tell you all about the latest winter holiday deals.

Warmer climates are much envied at this time of year, and for the sun-starved population of Britain, the Canary Islands are a go-to destination when it comes to winter escapes.

From just £289, you could soak up the sun and save by booking with Jet2Holidays. You will have a wide choice of UK airports from which to depart, with available resorts including Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and Tenerife.

If, like so many other Brits, you’ve already visited the Canary Islands so many times that you want a different experience, why not move away from the mainstream and embark on a journey through time?

Without straining your wallet, you can now explore the ancient world with a fully guided tour of Egypt, on which there is currently a generous 20% discount with Busabout.

Lead by a certified Egyptologist, the trip lasts 11 days, allowing you to see such wonders as the Great Pyramid of Giza, the Valley of the Kings and The Great Sphinx. You will also have the opportunity to take a luxury cruise on the eternally famous Nile River and soak up the sun in Dahab, which lies on the coastline of the Red Sea.

Even further afield, there is a unique 15% discount on winter bookings at the Chatrium Hotel Royal in Lake Yangon, Myanmar.

This amazing 5-star hotel features unbeatable views of the amazing Shwedagon Pagoda.

User reviews of this hotel are consistently positive, making this place a must-visit if you have enough money to cover such a holiday of a lifetime!

If heat isn’t high on the agenda, and you just want a change of scene, there are many winter holidays which offer you new experiences and locales at low prices.

Balkan Holidays is currently offering a number of Ski holidays in Bulgaria – Even if you’re uneasy about skiing, the beautiful scenery alone makes for excellent sightseeing. Often overlooked in favour of France and Switzerland, Bulgaria is home to some of the most challenging slopes in the world!

If you are a rank beginner on the slopes but fancy trying something new, then you’ll be pleased to know that the Pamporovo resort has a well-renowned Ski school. Departures from London Gatwick begin in March 2014 and prices start at just £240.

For the even more adventurous cold weather enthusiasts (we know you’re out there!), G Adventures is offering a 15% discount on what can only be described as the Antarctic expedition of a lifetime!

Polar experts will guide you through the region, and during the 6-day expedition you will see some amazing wildlife and scenery, such as gigantic whales tearing through the Antarctic Ocean and monumental icebergs which have formed over many centuries.

Those are our picks for winter 2013, but Compare4Deals has stacks of fantastic deals and discounts on holidays, flights and hotels which are updated every hour on the hour!
