Duration 11 Days

With so much to see and do, one of the best things about travelling Europe in winter is the serious lack of crowds. Enjoy Europe ‘all to yourself’ as you flit between France, Switzerland, Italy, Germany and Netherlands, where elegant capitals are blanketed in snow and festive cheer is as common as hand-knitted scarves.

London, England to Paris, France (or join in Paris)

Check out L'eclair de Genie in le Marais (don't ask questions), get your obligatory Eiffel Tower #selfie then explore the world's largest grave at the Catacombs. Tonight, experience the razzle dazzle of a cabaret show or hop on a boat down the river to crank the romance dial to 11.

Paris to Swiss Alps, Switzerland

Tear yourself away from that baguette - fondue awaits! The vistas out your window today are gorgeous. Unlike the Toblerone box, the Swiss Alps aren't all lined up perfectly, so we weave up through the breathtaking valleys and peaks to reach our destination. Grab your forks and prepare to cover everything in cheese at dinner tonight.

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Dinner

Swiss Alps

Ski, sled, snow angel, or park yourself indoors to enjoy the views (from the warmth). Craving more altitude? Head to the 'Top of Europe', aka Jungfrau, on an optional adventure and test your pano skills. The view from up here is so beautiful, you'll probably cry. Seriously. With so much to get involved with today, the question is, where to start?

Meals:
-Breakfast

Optional activities:
-Scenic excursion to Jungfrau ('The Top of Europe')
-Night sledding in the Swiss Alps
-Skiing in the Swiss Alps
-Skydiving in the Swiss Alps
-Scenic helicopter ride in the Swiss Alps

Swiss Alps to Venice, Italy

Bella Italia today as we roll into Venice. Get ready to get lost in its maze-like alleyways as you ogle the romantic canals. Inside tip: the best local haunts will always be found off the beaten track.

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Dinner

Venice

100+ slowly sinking islands won't explore themselves. Get your bearings on this morning's walking tour before an action packed day. Soak up St Mark's Square and opt in for a quintessential gondola ride on the Grand Canal (optional activity). Corny smooching not included. This afternoon, snoop the Doge's Palace, cross Rialto Bridge and shop for Carnevale masks. There's so much going on here. Did we mention it's beautiful?

Included today:
-Walking tour of Venice
-Vaporetto ride in Venice

Meals:
-Breakfast

Optional activities:
-Gondola ride in Venice

Venice to Munich, Germany

Time to leave Venice behind. *cries*. But it's all good because we're off to the epic Munich. It's time to get to know the city. Why not slide on your Lederhosen and get amongst it at the 426-year-old Hofbräuhaus - the recipes here were passed down from Wilhelm V, the Duke of Bavaria. Prost!
Included today:
-Walking tour of Munich

Meals:
-Breakfast

Munich to Rhine Valley

Medieval castles, vineyards and the mighty Rhine river are all up next today. Breathe in as we weave our way through narrow cobblestone streets and tunnels. Besides its obvious appeals (hello, fairytale views over the Rhine) half of Germany's wine comes from here. Shame not to try some.

Included today:
-Stay in the scenic Rhine Valley castle region

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Dinner

Rhine Valley to Amsterdam, Netherlands

Amster-DAM it's going to be a good day! Start dreaming of cheese and clogs as we roll through tulip and windmill dotted fields to Amsterdam. Get your bearings on a walking tour of the vibrant capital and see the Dam Square, Royal Palace and National Monument. End the night with a cone of hot chips with mayo. Mmm.

Included today:
-Dutch cheese & clogs demonstration
-Walking tour of Amsterdam

Meals:
-Breakfast

Amsterdam

Get on your bike and ride! Do as the locals do and join the 881,000 bicycles on an optional city bike tour to soak up the wintery canal vistas before retreating with hot chocolate, poffertjes and stroopwafels. Take on the city's 51 museums (must-dos: Van Gogh Museum and the Anne Frank House). Still thirsty for more? Check out the Heineken Experience for an interactive visit and tasting at the brewery. Top it off with a dinner cruise on the canal.
