January is the perfect time to escape to wonderfully contrasting exotic climes, or to the mountains for a spot of skiing.
The Alps and North America are well and truly open for business at this time of year. Often the snow is falling heavily in January and although it’s a little colder than later on in the ski season, it can be the perfect time to make fresh tracks in the powder. Find out more about our luxury ski vacations.
If it’s winter sun you’re after, the choice on offer is wide and varied. It’s a great time to visit certain parts of Asia, including India (where you can see the International Kite Festival), Sri Lanka and the Maldives, Malaysia and the Philippines; and parts of the Caribbean, too. Or, if you’re interested in taking a safari, this is an optimum time to head to Kenya or Tanzania for big game viewing. In the west, Central America is spectacular in January, as well as Argentina further south.
And that’s to name just a few of the places you could visit in January. Below you can browse all the destinations we offer that are best seen around this time of year.
