Why Travel in Winter

There are many reasons to try one of our best winter vacations. First, if you live in a cold-weather climate like we do, it’s a chance for a winter warm up. Imagine yourself lying on the beach in Mexico, lunching in a vineyard in Argentina, or watching the sunrise over the Sahara desert.

Our winter getaways are also a chance to take advantage of low season pricing and fewer crowds at our European destinations. Want to see Michelangelo’s David on a Florence food tour or the Mona Lisa during a culinary vacation in Paris? European tours in the winter can be a perfect way to enjoy the destination without fighting your way through the crowds.

Another reason to try our winter holiday destinations is for the wonderful winter foods. If you are traveling to Europe, you can take advantage of the winter produce and hearty winter meals. If you head to South America, you’ll find the growing climate of the Southern Hemisphere full of fresh, succulent produce. Where ever you travel on our best winter vacations you’ll find the same delicious, delectable food and drink that you would expect of a culinary tour with The International Kitchen.
