New Year Escorted Holidays

New Year tours in spectacular destinations

New Year is a time to celebrate, and what better way to reflect on the year past and ring in the New Year than with festive revelry in an excitingly unfamiliar destination? Whether you choose a mountain resort for a seasonal escape or a sparkling city for a memorable party, you will find the perfect balance between sightseeing, free time and festivities. Our New Year holidays offer a sociable group atmosphere combined with sumptuous gala dinners, live music, dancing, fireworks and special regional celebrations that you will cherish throughout the year.

Our New Year holidays are designed to ensure that you can truly enjoy every moment of the festive season, without the rush and stress that is normally associated with the holiday period. All of our holidays are escorted by Tour Managers who play an important role in ensuring that every part of your holiday runs smoothly. They are also ready to answer any questions that you may have about the destinations you are visiting or the tour.

At Great Rail Journeys we have a generous selection of European and worldwide destinations where you can welcome the New Year in style. Our New Year tours offer a genuinely unforgettable way to spend your holiday, either with friends and family or as a single traveller in the company of like-minded holidaymakers. The New Year tours are designed to give you the chance to see a selection of superb locations with the peace of mind that your friendly Tour Manager is taking care of all the travel and accommodation arrangements for you. Your knowledgeable guide will greet you at the beginning of the tour and be on hand should you need any assistance throughout the course of your trip, ensuring that everything runs smoothly. 

For those who prefer warmer climes, have a look at our New Year tour to Australia where you will visit the Great Barrier Reef, spectacular Sydney and Ayers Rock. For something a bit closer to home, we offer guided trips around Yorkshire where you can enjoy a delicious three-course meal on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway and for the ultimate New Year's Eve experience, travel to Scotland to encounter Hogmanay in Edinburgh. After the special gala dinner at the hotel, join the celebrations in the city centre with live music and parades through the streets. If you're after a different sort of New Year tour, for something a bit special we also have a river cruise along the Rhine, giving you the chance to see in the New Year in style aboard a splendid ship as you meander between towns along the river.
