Europe might be the home of the city break, but it also has incredible beaches and spectacular mountains to explore, depending on your preference. In Portugal, wine tastings and river cruises give way to the sheer grandeur of Porto and the Algarve's dazzling coast, or hop across the border to Spain to stroll through Gaudi's Barcelona, cooling off with sangria and tapas at a waterfront bar.
Of course, in Iceland, Finland, Sweden and Norway, winter breaks offer the quintessential Scandinavian experience, mushing huskies through the frozen tundra or cosying up in an exclusive lodge. There's even the chance to stay at the world-famous ICEHOTEL. Then, in complete contrast, Italy is an evergreen delight, its mix of scenic coastal towns, golden countryside, culture-packed cities and tranquil lakes offering endless opportunity for rest and relaxation.
