5 International destinations to escape the winter

If you would like to escape from the European winter, Fit 2 Trip recommends visiting these five destinations, where you can take refuge in warm climates and enjoy different activities that the locations have to offer:

Australia (Sydney): To escape the cold weather of this season in Europe we recommend a visit to Australia, where you will find the summer sun and plenty of activities to do, whether travelling with family, as a couple or solo. If you go to Sydney, you should not miss a visit to the zoo, the Sydney Botanical Gardens, the Royal National Park, kayak tours. These are just some of the many activities you will find there.

Colombia (Medellin): This city also known as ‘the city of eternal spring’, has a climate between 18°C and 30°C throughout the year. That’s why it’s another perfect place to escape the winter. If you visit this city between mid-November and January, you will see the Christmas lighting that every year is different and is known to be one of the most beautiful in the world and you can enjoy the festivities with local families, because making friends there is not difficult.

Egypt (Sharm El Sheikh): From this tourist city you can venture into different areas: visits to Cairo where you can tour the pyramids of Giza that are close to the city, tours through the desert on camels or ATVs or enjoy water sports such as scuba diving or snorkeling in the Red Sea. During January you will find a temperature between 14°C and 23°C.

Portugal (Madeira): If you do not want to go far to escape the cold, we recommend visiting these Portuguese islands where the climate is between 14 and 20 ° C. This island is perfect for road trips, you can be above the level of the clouds if you visit the ‘Pico do Arieir’ and enjoy excellent culinary options among which is the local drink ‘Poncha’.
