Hogmanay in Scotland (EUHS)
Looking for a very different New Year’s Eve experience? Try out Hogmanay in Scotland—a street-party celebration in and around Edinburgh that involves traditional singing and dancing, comedians, storytelling and more. This is a unique four-day trip that will immerse you in Scottish culture as you ring in the new year, highlander-style.
Highlights: Party with the Scottish at one of the world's largest New Year's Eve street parties, learn a new dance at a traditional céilidh, wander the beautiful streets of Edinburgh.
It’s one thing to look at photos of the majestic Northern Lights – it’s definitely another to see them for yourself while living in Iceland for five days. While we’ll absolutely take some time to go in search of the Lights, we’ll also include some local elements to best connect you to winter life in Reykjavík – think visits to flea markets, buying fish for a cooking class, and a walking tour of this beautiful city. The CEO is a native Icelander and will be able to impart loads of knowledge about customs and daily life. Throw in some free time to keep this trip extra-customizable and you’ve got an Iceland living experience to remember.
Highlights: Hunt for the ethereal Northern Lights, soak in natural pools with locals, savour the fruits of a cooking lesson with an Icelandic dinner feast, scour the local flea and fish market for bargains, explore the Icelandic countryside.
