Planning a winter getaway? Here’s where you need to go

Whether you fancy a cruise or a week on the slopes, we’ve got you covered!


There’s a lot to be said for organising a getaway at this time of year.

Whether you’re thinking about a last minute winter break with family or friends, or planning ahead for when those inevitable January blues kick in, a fun-filled holiday will no doubt put a pep in your step.

VIP Magazine has teamed up with Sunway Holidays to bring you the top destinations for you and the family – happy planning!

Winter wonderland


Give your kids a childhood memory they’ll never forget by whisking them away to a fairytale world of snow-covered forests and the opportunity to meet Santa himself: Lapland.

The Finnish region has the last remaining expanse of wilderness in northern Europe, including the coastline, forests, mountains and unspoilt rivers, and in winter this becomes a magical winter wonderland, where you can experience the fun of snow mobiling, toboggans and sleigh rides.

From the moment you arrive in the snow-clad magical world of Lapland, your time is filled with things that dreams are made of, such as snowmobile adventures, a reindeer sleigh ride through the snowy forest, a husky dog ride, a trip to Santa’s post office and much more. A special Christmas indeed!
