Ideas For Wintertime Holidays In Spain

Spain is widely regarded as one of the best summer holiday destinations in Europe. However, there a good number of reasons to visit this beautiful Mediterranean country during the winter. You'll find that travel companies such as Directline-holidays offer tempting discounts as a means of enticing people to travel at this time of year.  You may also be able to secure relatively inexpensive hotel accommodation during the months from December through to February. Those of you who book winter tickets to Spain can look forward to the following activities.


Snow Shoeing And Hiking
The Spanish Pyranees and Sierra Nevada mountains are usually covered in snow during the winter months. Intrepid explorers have the opportunity to hire snow shoes and purpose-made hiking boots for walks across the snowy landscape. It may even be possible to spot birds such as the Lammegeler or Alpine Accentor at this time of year.


Copa Nadal Swimming Competition
If you are confident of your ability to swim and withstand cold temperatures then why not join the crowds for a dive into the waters of the Barcelona Harbour on Christmas Day. After the extreme physical and mental challenge you may enjoy a traditional Christmas meal at one of the inner city restaurants.


Wintertime Shopping
Whether you're interested in purchasing Spanish craft items or designer clothes, it is worth taking a tour of the shops and markets of Barcelona. Many of the trade sellers offer substantial discounts on their products during the month after Christmas.


Spanish Carnival
The colourful and lively Spanish carnival is held at the end of February each year. The street music acts and rhythmic dancers keep the crowds entertained from early morning until late evening. After watching the parade you can enjoy the shows that take place in the entertainment venues of Tenerife and Cadiz.
