About this deal

Not far behind Glasgow, Aberdeen, Dundee and Edinburgh are also facing good odds for a white Christmas this year. If you’re going to travel to see snow this Christmas, you may as well go all the way and visit Santa while you’re at it. Santa’s village has hundreds of little houses for guests, restaurants on-site, a husky park, and reindeer that pull sleighs. And if that’s not enough, Fairbanks and North Pole, Alaska are located in the auroral oval, a prime location to see the Northern Lights.

In the United Kingdom, white Christmases were more common from the 1550s to the 1850s, during the Little Ice Age; the last frost fair on the River Thames, however, was in the winter of 1813–14. It might not have looked as beautiful as this winterscape though when Arya Stark and others travelled through the two rows of looming beech trees on their way to Winterfell. If you do not want to take a ride on the tram, then make sure you at least admire the beautifully decorated Christmas tram from the outside. The people in Krakow like to celebrate Christmas in high spirits even with the harsh climatic conditions. If you’re more interested in the coast then Northumberland’s stunning beaches and Yorkshire’s popular fishing villages will not disappoint.Yosemite National Park has plenty of festivities during December, with sleigh rides and outdoor ice skating, plus the famed Bracebridge Dinner brings you back to the old English era with a festive dinner. There is almost no background to be seen as the unrelenting blizzard pummels the river and its banks alike. Because December is at the beginning of the Southern Hemisphere summer, white Christmases there are extremely rare, except in Antarctica (uninhabited), in the Southern Alps of New Zealand's South Island, and in parts of the Andes in South America as well as the southern tip of the continent, in places like Ushuaia, Argentina.

update] [23] A more "traditional" idea of snow-covered ground is less common, however, with only 4 occasions in the 51 years to 2015 [update] reporting snow on the ground at 9am at more than 40% of weather stations. As one of the most Instagrammed hotels in the world, the Fairmont Le Chateau Frontenac in the centre of Old Quebec City will make you feel like you’re staying in a castle. During Christmas you can enjoy skiing, snowboarding on kilometres of slopes or you could take the calmer way and ski cross country or go snowshoeing through the silent woods. As a city completely dedicated to all things Santa, snow, reindeer, huskies, and the holidays, you can’t possibly get into the holiday spirit any more than in Rovaniemi.

In recent decades, white Christmases in Zagreb have been observed in 1996, 1998, 1999, 2001 and – most recently, as of 2018 – in 2007. You may even find some snowy flurries further down England, moving into the South West – it is, of course, less regular than snow in England's northern reaches but it is truly magnificent when it settles. However, the only Christmas Day at the airport ever to have lying snow at 09:00 was 2010 (although no snow actually fell that day), with 20 cm (7. In our family holiday destinations across Swedish Lapland, Northern Norway and Finnish Lapland, the arrival of snow doesn’t mean traffic chaos on the school run, but the chance to enjoy some amazing family activities in a winter playground.
