Short Breaks

A taste of adventure for those short on time

Tailor-made short breaks & city stays


Whether you’re looking to sample one of Europe’s cultural hotspots with a quick city break, escape to a remote, wildlife-filled wilderness or indulge during a long weekend of sun and sea, our short break specialists are here to help you create your perfect mini-adventure.

There's everything from cultural events in Rome and Barcelona and romantic spa retreats in Lake Como to thrilling Arctic breaks in Lapland, luxury weekends in the Algarve and road trips through medieval Spain – with the whole of Europe on the doorstep, options are truly endless. Or, if you want to soak up some guaranteed sunshine year-round – while exercising your mind, your body and your credit card – consider a luxurious beach-and-shopping trip to Dubai. 

To get the most out of your mini-break, ask our experts about the best time to travel, whether you want away-from-it-all relaxation or lively festivals and events, from Bloomsday in Dublin and the Vienna Opera Festival to the spiritual pilgrimages of Spain and Portugal and carnivals under the midnight sun in Reykjavik and St Petersburg.
