Everyone thinks summer is the perfect time to travel. But visit Europe during the cooler months, when the crowds have gone and the scenery is transformed, and you’ll soon see why swapping that lemon gelato for a steamy Tuscan soup is every bit as rewarding.

Let Trafalgar open the door to Europe at a time when city boulevards and parks come alive with colour, smells of mulled wine and roasting chestnuts fill the evening air of Europe’s Christmas markets and legendary cities celebrate the festive season in style. A time when the streets are less crowded, the air is crisp and the value for money unbeatable when compared to peak summer travel.

Trafalgar’s local knowledge lets them reveal the secrets of Europe in autumn, winter and spring from a unique insider’s view, with exclusive experiences you wouldn’t otherwise encounter. There’s nowhere on earth like Europe in autumn, winter and spring. And no one uncovers its magic like Trafalgar.

Travel to Europe with Trafalgar during autumn, winter and spring and there will be no shivering in queues for Europe’s sightseeing attractions or hunting for a heated restaurant – they plan everything perfectly so all you need to do is pack your bags and enjoy.

On your Trafalgar guided holiday you’ll enjoy unique insider experiences like Hidden Treasures sightseeing, authentic local dining experiences, including their exclusive Be My Guest dinners, carefully chosen First Class hotels in ideal locations, free VIP entry to major sights, complimentary airport transfers in gateway cities, a fantastic Welcome Reception and special Farewell Dinner plus unforgettable Christmas and New Year events.

Trafalgar’s off-season packages start from R13 650 per person sharing for the Festive English Countryside guided holiday. You’ll visit the winter wonderland of the English countryside at Christmas. Tour England's cathedral cities of Ely and Lincoln and see them draped in festive colour and decorations. You’ll also get the opportunity to visit one of England's leading cookery schools, the Tideswell School of Food, as you experience a feel for a traditional Christmas in England.

Save up to R2770 per couple for a limited-time when you take advantage of Trafalgar’s Early Payment Discount on any 2013/14 Europe and Britain Autumn, Winter & Spring holiday booked and paid in full by 31 October 2013.
