COVID-19 and Your Health

Air travel

New Travel Requirements:

All air passengers coming to the United States, including U.S. citizens, are required to have a negative COVID-19 test result or documentation of recovery from COVID-19 before they board a flight to the United States. See the Frequently Asked Questions for more information.

Masks are required on planes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation traveling into, within, or out of the United States and in U.S. transportation hubs such as airports and stations.

COVID-19 Alert: Cases are Extremely High. Avoid Travel

Travel increases your chance of getting and spreading COVID-19. CDC recommends that you do not travel at this time. Delay travel and stay home to protect yourself and others from COVID-19.

COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths are extremely high across the United States. Wear a mask, stay at least 6 feet/2 meters apart, avoid crowds, and wash your hands often. The more steps you take, the more you and others around you are protected against COVID-19. View cases in the U.S. and cases by state on CDC’s COVID Data Tracker.

You and your travel companions (including children) may feel well and not have any symptoms, but you can still spread COVID-19 to family, friends, and community during and after travel. Check your state, territorial, or local health department for information about local quarantine requirements.

Do NOT travel if you were exposed to COVID-19, you are sick, or you have tested positive for COVID-19. Learn when it is safe for you to travel. Don’t travel with someone who is sick.

Before You Consider Traveling

Travel increases your chance of spreading and getting COVID-19. CDC recommends that you do not travel at this time. Delay travel and stay home to protect yourself and others from COVID-19.

If you must travel, here are some important questions to ask yourself and your loved ones beforehand.

  • Are you, someone in your household, or someone you will be visiting at increased risk for getting very sick from COVID-19?
    If you get infected you can spread the virus to loved ones during travel and when you return, even if you don’t have symptoms. If your household includes one or more individuals at increased risk for severe illness, all family members should act as if they, themselves are at increased risk. Learn how to protect yourself and others.
  • Are hospitals in your community or your destination overwhelmed with patients who have COVID-19? To find out, check state, territorial, and local department websites.
  • Does your home or destination have requirements or restrictions for travelers? Check state, territorial, and local requirements before you travel.
  • During the 14 days before your travel, have you or those you are visiting had close contact with people they don’t live with?
    The following activities can put you at higher risk for COVID-19:
    • Going to a large social gathering like a wedding, funeral, or party.
    • Attending a mass gathering like a sporting event, concert, or parade.
    • Being in crowds like in restaurants, bars, fitness centers, or movie theaters.
    • Taking public transportation like planes, trains, or buses, or being in transportation hubs like airports.
    • Traveling on a cruise ship or riverboat.
  • Do your plans include traveling by bus, train, or air, which might make staying 6 feet apart difficult?
  • Are you traveling with people who don’t live with you?

If the answer to any of these questions is “yes,” you should delay your travel.

If You Must Travel

If you must travel, take these steps to protect yourself and others from COVID-19:

  • If you are eligible, get fully vaccinated for COVID-19. Wait 2 weeks after getting your second vaccine dose to travel—it takes time for your body to build protection after any vaccination.
  • Get tested with a viral test 1-3 days before you travel. Keep a copy of your test results with you during travel in case you are asked for them. Do NOT travel if you test positive.
  • Check travel restrictions before you go.
  • Wear a mask over your nose and mouth when in public settings. Masks are required on planes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation traveling into, within, or out of the United States and in U.S. transportation hubs such as airports and stations.
  • Avoid crowds and stay at least 6 feet/2 meters (about 2 arm lengths) from anyone who did not travel with you. It’s important to do this everywhere — both indoors and outdoors.
  • Wash your hands often or use hand sanitizer (with at least 60% alcohol).
  • Bring extra supplies, such as masks and hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid contact with anyone who is sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

Do NOT travel if you were exposed to COVID-19, you are sick or you test positive for COVID-19. Learn when it is safe for you to travel. Don’t travel with someone who is sick.

Get Tested Before and After Travel

  • If you are traveling, get tested with a viral test 1-3 days before your trip. Make sure you have the results of your negative test before you travel. Keep a copy of your results with you during travel; you might be asked for them.
  • Do not travel if you test positive. Immediately isolate yourself, and follow public health recommendations.
  • Get tested again with a viral test 3-5 days after your trip and stay home and self-quarantine for a full 7 days after travel, even if your test is negative. If you don’t get tested, stay home and self-quarantine for 10 days after travel.
  • You may have been exposed to COVID-19 on your travels. Regardless of where you traveled or what you did during your trip, take these actions to protect others from getting COVID-19 after travel:
    • Avoid crowds and stay at least 6 feet/2 meters (about 2 arm lengths) from anyone who did not travel with you. It’s important to do this everywhere — both indoors and outdoors. Wear a mask over your nose and mouth when in public settings. Masks are required on planes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation traveling into, within, or out of the United States and in U.S. transportation hubs such as airports and stations.
    • If there are people in the household who did not travel with you, wear a mask and ask everyone in the household to wear masks in shared spaces inside your home for 14 days after travel.
    • Wash your hands often or use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
    • Avoid being around people who are at increased risk for severe illness.
    • Watch your health: Look for symptoms of COVID-19.

Traveling Internationally? All air passengers coming to the United States, including U.S. citizens, are required to have a negative COVID-19 test result or documentation of recovery from COVID-19 before they board a flight to the United States. See the Frequently Asked Questions for more information.

Check CDC’s COVID-19 Travel Recommendations by Destination before planning your trip.

Check Travel Restrictions

State, local, and territorial governments may have travel restrictions in place, including testing requirements, stay-at-home orders, and quarantine requirements upon arrival. For up-to-date information and travel guidance, check the state or territorial and local health department where you are, along your route, and where you are going. Prepare to be flexible during your trip as restrictions and policies may change during your travel. Follow all state, local, and territorial travel restrictions.

If traveling by air, check if your airline requires any health information, testing, or other documents. Local policies at your destination may require you to be tested for COVID-19. If you test positive on arrival, you may be required to isolate for a period of time.

All air passengers coming to the United States, including U.S. citizens, are required to have a negative COVID-19 test result or documentation of recovery from COVID-19 before boarding a flight to the United States. See the Frequently Asked Questions for more information.

After You Travel

You may have been exposed to COVID-19 on your travels. You may feel well and not have any symptoms, but you can still spread the virus to others. You and your travel companions (including children) may pose a risk to your family, friends, and community after your travel.

Get Tested and Stay Home After Travel

  • Get tested with a viral test 3-5 days after travel AND stay home and self-quarantine for a full 7 days after travel.
    • Even if you test negative, stay home and self-quarantine for the full 7 days.
    • If your test is positive, isolate yourself to protect others from getting infected.
  • If you don’t get tested, stay home and self-quarantine for 10 days after travel.
  • Avoid being around people who are at increased risk for severe illness for 14 days, whether you get tested or not.

Follow all state and local recommendations or requirements after travel.

Also, take these actions after you return from travel to protect others from getting COVID-19:

  • Avoid crowds and stay at least 6 feet/2 meters (about 2 arm lengths) from anyone who did not travel with you. It’s important to do this everywhere — both indoors and outdoors.
  • Wear a mask over your nose and mouth when in public settings. Masks are required on planes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation traveling into, within, or out of the United States and in U.S. transportation hubs such as airports and stations.
  • If there are people in the household who did not travel with you, wear a mask  and ask everyone in the household to wear masks in shared spaces inside your home for 14 days after travel.
  • Wash your hands often or use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Avoid being around people who are at increased risk for severe illness.
  • Watch your health: Look for symptoms of COVID-19.

Considerations for Types of Travel

Travel increases your chances of spreading and getting COVID-19. Delay travel and stay home. If you must travel, consider which activities you will be doing and their risk.

The type of transportation you use, type of accommodation you stay in, and the activities you do during travel, can increase your risk of getting and spreading COVID-19.  Your chances of getting or spreading COVID-19 while traveling also depend on whether you and those around you take steps to protect yourselves and others, by wearing masks, avoiding crowds, and staying 6 feet from anyone who is not traveling with you (social distancing). Masks are required on planes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation traveling into, within, or out of the United States and in U.S. transportation hubs such as airports and stations.

Airports, bus and train stations, and rest stops are all places travelers can be exposed to the virus in the air and on surfaces. These are also places where it can be hard to social distance. In general, the longer you are around a person with COVID-19, the more likely you are to get infected.

Air travel requires spending time in security lines and airport terminals, which can bring you in close contact with other people and frequently touched surfaces. Most viruses and other germs do not spread easily on flights because of how air is circulated and filtered on airplanes. However, social distancing is difficult on crowded flights and sitting within 6 feet of others, sometimes for hours, may increase your risk of getting COVID-19. How you get to and from the airport, such as with public transportation and ridesharing, can also increase your chances of being exposed to the virus.

Traveling on buses and trains for any length of time can involve being in crowded terminals and sitting or standing within 6 feet of others, which may increase your risk of getting COVID-19. If you choose to travel by bus or train, learn what you can do to protect yourself on public transportation.

Making stops along the way for gas, food, or bathroom breaks can put you and your traveling companions in close contact with other people and frequently touched surfaces.

You may have to stop less often for food or bathroom breaks, but RV travel usually means staying at RV parks overnight and getting gas and supplies at other public places. These stops may put you and those with you in the RV in close contact with others.

Learn more about how to protect yourself from COVID-19 on different types of transportation.

Considerations for Staying with Family or Friends

If you, someone you live with, or anyone you plan to visit is at increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19,  delay travel and stay home. If you must travel, stay in a separate accommodation like a hotel, guest house, or short-stay rental.

Tips for staying overnight or hosting overnight guests

  • Wear masks while in shared spaces inside the house. Masks may be removed for eating, drinking, and sleeping, but individuals from different households should stay at least 6 feet/2 meters (about 2 arms lengths) away from each other at all times.
  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially upon arrival.
  • Improve ventilation by opening windows and doors or by placing central air and heating on continuous circulation.
  • Spend time together outdoors. Take a walk or sit outdoors at least 6 feet apart for interpersonal interactions.
  • Avoid singing or shouting, especially indoors.

Be prepared. Know what you will do if you, a family member or friend becomes sick during the visit. Make plans for isolation, medical care, basic care, and quarantining exposed people.

Tips to avoid getting and spreading COVID-19 in common travel situations:

In public:

  • Wear a mask over your nose and mouth when in public Masks are required on planes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation traveling into, within, or out of the United States and in U.S. transportation hubs such as airports and stations.
  • Avoid crowds and stay at least 6 feet/2 meters (about 2 arm lengths) from anyone who is not traveling with you.

Bathrooms and rest stops:

  • Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds after using the bathroom and after you have been in a public place.
  • If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.

Getting gas:

  • Use disinfecting wipes on handles and buttons at the gas pumps before you touch them.
  • After fueling, use a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. When you get to your destination, wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

Navigating the Latest Travel Restrictions Across the U.S.

Democratic Governor

It’s complicated.

flipboard

This is a developing story. We will continue to update as the world changes. For the latest information on traveling during the coronavirus outbreak, visit the websites of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization

The United States is in the midst of what many predicted to be a new COVID spike this fall and winter. One million coronavirus cases were reported in the past week alone, reports AFAR’s Michelle Baran, and some state and local governments are imposing increasingly strict travel restrictions and recommendations ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. The CDC has also asked Americans to stay home for Thanksgiving.

You could get whiplash with all the rule changes. We’re actively reaching out to local and state tourism boards and following the latest recommendations of the CDC to give you the most up-to-date information about traveling—safely, responsibly—across the United States right now. Here’s what we know:

What questions should you ask before taking a trip?

Per the CDC, you should do this quiz before leaving your community:

  • Is COVID-19 spreading where you’re going? (You can get infected while traveling.)
  • Is COVID-19 spreading in your community? (Even if you don’t have symptoms, you could spread the virus to others while traveling.)
  • Will you or those you’re traveling with be within six feet of others during your trip? (That is, are you going to socially distance from others? It’s a good idea.)
  • Are you or those you’re traveling with more likely to get very ill from COVID-19? 
  • Do you live with someone who’s more likely to get very sick?
  • Does the state or local government where you live—or at your destination—require you to stay home for 14 days after traveling? (More on that below.)
  • Are you sick? (STAY HOME.)

These are the states with declining cases of COVID-19, as of November 20.

You’ll notice there aren’t many. Johns Hopkins University has been tracking COVID-19 publicly since January 22, and its world map, U.S. map, and critical trends graph have become our go-to sources for new coronavirus cases. In the infographic below, the greener the background, the bigger the downward trend of new cases in this state. As you can see, most states are seeing an upswing in cases. The U.S. on the whole confirmed its 11 millionth infection on November 15, and is getting very close to 12 million, as of November 20. Also notabale: The CDC reported a 55 percent rise in COVID cases for young adults ages 18–22 from August 2 to September 5 (including many students back in college). 

Puerto Rico and Hawaii are the only bright spots right now. Hawaii has a rigorous testing process in place for any visitors, while Puerto Rico—to remain safe—has scaled back capacity at restaurants, closed beaches, and imposed a new curfew through at least December 11. 

This snapshot is from November 20 but it’s updated regularly on coronavirus.jhu.edu.

These states have seen recent spikes in COVID-19 cases:

The redder the background, the bigger the upward trend of new cases in this state. “Daily case reports are rising in 48 states, and with little action from the Trump administration, governors and mayors across the country are taking new steps to try to halt the spread. On Monday, a sweeping stay-at-home advisory went into effect in Chicago and Philadelphia announced strict new rules starting Friday, banning indoor gatherings and closing indoor dining at restaurants,” reports the New York Times.

Travel restrictions by state: Who’s still in lockdown?

Several cities and states are rolling back their reopenings in some form, according to this regularly updated map by the New York Times. Among the most recent:

The governors of California, Oregon, and Washington on Friday “issued a joint statement urging residents to stay close to home and are advising against nonessential out-of-state travel,” reports Baran. “The governors are also asking—not requiring—residents and visitors entering from out-of-state, including international travelers, to self-quarantine for 14 days.” Check this L.A. Times graph to find the latest on the county you plan to visit, and read AFAR’s full story on California’s reopening.

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot called on residents in the nation’s third-largest city to restrict social gatherings to 10 people starting Monday, November 16. In instructions that were advisory, not mandatory, she urged residents to stay home except for essential activities, like going to work or grocery shopping. This stay-at-home advisory will last 30 days, or until the city deems it safe to end.

Louisiana is now in phase 3 of reopening with a statewide mask mandate. As of November 11, New Orleans is in phase 3.3, the last step before a final phase 4 reopening. The city started allowing bars to sell to-go alcohol again and restaurants, cafés, and bars with food permits could open to 75 percent capacity indoors. Read the latest at neworleans.com.

New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham’s stay-at-home order went into effect Monday, November 16. Only essential businesses, including grocery stores and pharmacies, will be open.

New York has closed public schools and set a curfew for restaurants and bars of 10 p.m.

New Jersey has limited indoor gatherings to 10 people or less.

Nevada requires that people wear masks when they leave the house, be it in indoor public spaces or outdoor spaces where you can’t stand six feet from others. Las Vegas bars reopened at limited capacity in September.

Philadelphia banned all indoor dining at restaurants and indoor gatherings of any size, public or private, of people from different households, starting November 20.

Washington’s Democratic Governor Jay Inslee ordered gyms, bowling alleys, movie theaters, museums, and zoos to shut down indoor operations. Stores must limit capacity to 25 percent.

Can I travel across state lines during coronavirus?

Short answer: Yes, but you might have to quarantine.

If you plan to visit Alaska . . . you need to do one of three things: complete a traveler declaration form and arrive with proof of a negative COVID-19 test; get a test when you arrive in Alaska and self-quarantine until you have the results; or self-quarantine for 14 days or the duration of your trip, whichever is shorter. Read more in our story Can We Travel to Alaska This Summer? and at covid19.alaska.gov/travelers.

If you plan to visit Chicago . . . and you’re from a red (hot spot) state, you’ll have to quarantine for 14 days (as of November 17—the list is updated weekly). If you’re coming from an orange state, you will have to show a negative PCR test within 72 hours of arrival or quarantine for 14 days. The state of Illinois does not have the same quarantine rules. Visit chicago.gov for the most recent list.

If you plan to visit Hawaii . . . you have to self-quarantine for 14 days. But starting October 15, visitors to Hawaii who provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of arriving can avoid the otherwise mandatory 14-day quarantine that has been in place since March 26, AFAR’s Michelle Baran reports. Visitors must also fill out a mandatory online health applicationRead the full story.

If you plan to visit Maine . . . you’ll be asked to quarantine for 14 days on arrival, or sign a Certificate of Compliance that says you received a negative COVID-19 test result within 72 hours of arriving in Maine. You’re exempt from both testing and quarantine if you’re coming from New Hampshire or Vermont. Check “Keep Maine Healthy FAQs” and the mandates for entering Maine for the latest information. 

If you plan to visit Massachusetts . . . and you’re coming from a low-risk state(just Hawaii, Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont, as of Nov. 11) you are exempt from quarantine. Otherwise, you must self-quarantine for 14 days on arrival or produce a negative COVID-19 test result within 72 hours of arriving, according to the Massachusetts Travel Order. Check the latest quarantine list at mass.gov.

If you plan to visit New Hampshire . . . and you’re visiting or returning from out of state (excluding the New England states of Maine, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, or Rhode Island) you must self-quarantine for 14 days. If you’re asymptomatic and show a negative PCR test on or after day 7 of quarantining, you can end quaranttine. Visit covidguidance.nh.gov for the latest.

If you plan to visit New Jersey or Connecticut . . . and you’re coming from a current viral hot spot—aka nearly the entire country, by last count—you will be asked to self-quarantine for 14 days and face fines ($2,000–$10,000) and mandatory quarantine if you break isolation. The quarantine will apply to any state where 10 of every 100,000 people test positive on a rolling seven-day basis, or where the positivity rate in the total population is 10 percent, also on a seven-day rolling basis.

If you plan to visit New York . . . “After months of requiring a 14-day quarantine for travelers coming from an ever-shrinking and expanding list of U.S. states, New York has moved to a more uniform test-based system,” reports Baran. “Starting November 4, travelers from out of state—and returning New Yorkers who left for more than 24 hours—will need to show two separate negative COVID tests and quarantine for at least three days on arrival.” Read on for the full process.

If you plan to visit Vermont . . . you must quarantine for 14 days once you arrive. The exemptions have been suspended, as of November 10. Visit vermont.gov for the latest.

For all states, it’s worth checking the latest COVID-19 information on their sites before booking anything. Note that Florida, which formerly had a quarantine for Northeasterners, no longer has travel restrictions in place.

How are you going to travel?

Travel increases your chances of getting and spreading COVID-19,” reports the CDC. “We don’t know if one type of travel is safer than others; however, airports, bus stations, train stations, and rest stops are all places travelers can be exposed to the virus in the air and on surfaces. These are also places where it can be hard to social distance.” 

“You’re going to see a resurgence of [road trips],” Roger Dow, president and CEO of the U.S. Travel Association, which represents the domestic travel and tourism industry, told AFAR. Recreational vehicles (RVs) have seen a boom in rentals and sales this year, and a number of our staffers are planning on going that route for their first trips post-COVID. (Just check out Maggie Fuller’s primer on RV travel during a pandemic.)

One last thought

As avid and responsible travelers, we’re all worried about the same things above all—the safety and health of the global village that has become inextricably linked by this international public health crisis. As we wait and watch to see how different governments respond to the coronavirus pandemic, it’s also important for travelers to be real and honest with themselves regarding what they are comfortable with and the ways in which they can and would travel that will minimize their impact when moving through the world.

St. Vincent and the Grenadines Vacation Packages

Like many of its Caribbean counterparts, this 32-island chain features secluded beaches, tiny cays and colorful coral reefs. Unlike other areas, it has few tourists. Find charming destinations not heavily frequented by cruise ships on the chain of 32 islands of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. The forested volcanic islands, white beaches and coral reefs here are as beautiful as any on the more popular Caribbean islands. St. Vincent and the Grenadines feel peaceful and secluded due to the lack of tourists. Relax here on a tiny cay that seems truly apart from the bustle of civilization.

St. Vincent is the chain’s largest and main island. The much smaller island of Bequia features some of the best beaches on miles of secluded shoreline, yet it has an area of only 7 square miles (18 square kilometers). Cool off in the calm waters of Princess Margaret Beach and Lower Bay Beach, both of which open onto the bay of Port Elizabeth on the island’s west side. Afterward, enjoy inexpensive seafood meals. When the wind shifts, discover isolated Industry Bay on the island’s northeast side.

Spend at least one day snorkeling or diving in the islands’ coral reefs. St. Vincent’s Bat Cave is a great spot for experienced divers. This deep, dark opening in seaside cliffs opens to a popular roosting place for bats. Watch the flying mammals flitting above as you explore the cave’s waters. Take a boat to the Tobago Cays, five tiny islands in the middle of the Grenadines surrounded by Horseshoe Reef.

Explore St. Vincent for the country’s best inland pleasures. Kingstown, the capital, is a lively Caribbean port. Visit on Saturdays to see the town’s daily market at its busiest and purchase fresh and juicy local melon. Trek into the rainforest-covered interior of the island, where you can climb up the cone and into the crater of the active La Soufriere Volcano.

Fly into St. Vincent and the Grenadines via the international airport just outside Kingstown. Navigate between the islands by hiring a boat and crew or renting your own sailboat or motorboat.

Best winter destinations in Europe

Athens

Winter comes in many guises in Europe – in the polar north there’s serious snow and sunless weeks, while you’ll find lingering sunshine in the mild Mediterranean, and cosy cafe culture and Christmas spirit in the centre.

It’s an inspiring time to visit grand cities and charming villages: with fewer queues you can fit more into your itinerary, and off-season accommodation prices make European travel wallet-friendly in November, December, January and February. Via Europe’s train network you can explore countries at your leisure, meeting locals going about their daily business away from the often-frenetic summer tourist season. Here are the 10 best winter destinations in Europe. 

Editor’s note: Please check the latest travel restrictions before planning any trip and always follow government advice.

1. Rovaniemi, Finland

Fistfuls of Christmas clichés characterise Rovaniemi, the “official” terrestrial residence of Santa Claus. Everyone’s favourite bearded man hangs out in an atmospheric Arctic Circle grotto, and it’s free to visit him (but photos are another story). Snow and reindeer add festive spirit, while the Arktikum museum gives insights into life at these latitudes.

Tip: Finnish thermometers have more numbers below 0°C than above, so pack serious winter clothing.

2. Christmas markets in Germany & Austria

December sees these romantic historic markets pop up all over Germany, Austria and other Central European nations. Expect cute stalls selling everything from gingerbread to sleigh bells and plenty of good cheer, toasted with a glass of warming glühwein.

Tip: Famous markets in Cologne, Vienna and Munich draw the tourist crowds, but seeking out ones in smaller towns is rewarding.

3. Abisko, Sweden

Almost as far north as you can get in Europe on a train, Abisko in Lapland is for lovers of serious winter. The sun doesn’t rise for several weeks in December and January but that darkness makes it one of the world’s best places to view the majestic aurora borealis. Other attractions include cross-country skiing along national park trails and husky mushing.

Tip: Stop off at nearby Kiruna to see the famous Icehotel.

4. Athens, Greece

It’s a real downer trying to Photoshop 500 people out of your would-be-prizewinning Parthenon photo, but during the winter in Athens it’s not an issue. All summer stresses – crowding, tourist pricing, intense heat, queues, air pollution – more or less disappear. The average temperature in Athens during the winter is around 13C (55F). It’s the best time to explore the country’s ancient heritage and get to experience local culture.

Tip: By all means do some island-hopping, but most accommodations close in winter.

5. Copenhagen, Denmark

For fairytale European winter, it’s hard to beat the home of Hans Christian Andersen. Forget the over-hyped Little Mermaid and head to the city’s cosy bars and cafes to watch snow flurrying outside. In the heart of town, the 19th-century Tivoli amusement park is a romantic, kitsch delight around Christmastime, with heartwarming illuminations and body-warming mugs of glögg.

Tip: Splash out on a meal at noma, considered by many to be the world’s best restaurant (reservations can fill quickly, so try to book several months in advance).

The best of Budapest’s thermal baths

6. Budapest, Hungary

Couples skating hand-in-hand, breath cloudy in the frosty air – there’s nowhere better for it than the Hungarian capital’s picturesque central park Városligeti Műjégpálya, with its enormous outdoor rink. Feeling chilly afterwards? Budapest is famous for its ornate thermal baths.

Tip: At night seek out a “ruin pub”– an atmospheric drinking venue artfully created in a once-abandoned building.

7. Jasná, Slovakia

Slovakia offers high-quality skiing at affordable prices. Accommodation and food are reasonable too, and there’s a friendliness that’s missing from some of the snootier Alpine slopes. Jasná is the best Slovakian resort, with long descents flanked by snow-laden spruce trees, set in the ruggedly lovely Tatras Mountains.

Tip: Flights direct to Slovakia can be pricey, so don’t make this your entry point to Europe.

8. Andalucía, Spain

Tip: Head to the Sierra Nevada near Granada if you want snowsport action.

9. Transylvania, Romania

You can’t visit Dracula’s lair on a sunny day with lambs bleating in the fields, right? Try steel-grey skies, bare trees and a smattering of snow. Braşov and Sighişoara, two hours apart by rail, are gorgeous medieval towns with various connections to Vlad Ţepeş, the historical Dracula, though it’s doubtful that he ever set foot in his so-called castle.

Tip: Bram Stoker never visited Romania, so don’t expect many parallels with the book or films.

10. Venice, Italy

Hauntingly beautiful and rather weird, Venice’s Carnevale in February is a European highlight. Elaborate costumes and spooky masks bring the canal city’s colourful history to life. Costumed dances are pricey affairs, but you can have a ball enjoying the free events with a mask bought on the street, but be prepared for epic crowding.

Tip: Book accommodation ahead. Day-tripping in and out on a train will lower costs considerably.

About St Vincent and the Grenadines

Scattered across the Caribbean Sea like so many emeralds, St Vincent & the Grenadines is a glorious-looking archipelago. The country’s name makes it sound like an old soul band, and aptly there’s something timeless about the place. Lush mountain peaks, white sands, secluded coves, volcanic landscapes and spectacular coral reefs all go towards making this one of the region’s most diverse spots. For hikers, sailors and those who just fancy kicking back in wave-lapped sunshine for a week or two, it’s some proposition.

The country, which found Hollywood fame when it was used as a setting for the Pirates of the Caribbean films, is made up of 32 islands and cays. St Vincent itself is by far the largest, and has a laid-back capital city, Kingstown, to show for it. Colonial architecture, botanical gardens and a fish market are among the attractions. The latter hints at the dishes that dominate the archipelago’s food scene – fresh seafood, usually washed down with a cold Hairoun beer, is a speciality. Elsewhere on St Vincent there’s some fantastic walking to be had, most notably the trail that leads up to La Soufrière volcano.

The smaller islands that make up the Grenadines offer an even quieter pace of life. Among the most appealing spots are Bequia, which has good claim to that overused adage “the Caribbean as it used to be,” and Mustique, a long-established A-list bolthole that has welcomed the likes of Mick Jagger, Kate Moss and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

The best way to experience the outlying islands is to hop between them by boat, and the country as a whole has near-legendary status in the yachting community. The most obvious focal point on a sailing trip is the stupendously scenic Tobago Cays, which is made up of five uninhabited islands and offers excellent potential for divers and snorkelers.
