Exodus has announced 11 new trips for its 2014/15 winter brochure, with a wide variety of winter activities, from snowshoeing and cross-country skiing to more cultural walking tours, as well as five new destinations: Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Turkey and Albania.
Following demand from summer walking tour customers, the operator has launched several snowshoeing holidays for the coming season, with snowshoeing trips available in the French Alps, Albania and Turkey, as well as cross-country skiing in France and the High Tatras of Northern Slovakia.
For clients in search of a new sporting challenge, there is the Transjurassienne Ski Race. Located in the French Jura Mountains, the challenge is one of the most popular in the ski racing calendar and stretches more than 50km.
Meanwhile, a new collection of cultural trips will see customers travel from Vienna to Prague, sample Stockholm and the Baltics, discover winter in Transylvania and marvel at Finland’s Northern Lights.
Tom Wilkinson, the company’s winter adventures programme manager, said: “We have stepped up the programme by adding more cultural tours and several new destinations such as Albania and Estonia. A range of difficulty levels also means a world of choice for beginners as well as repeat customers.”
As an example of prices, a five-day Vienna to Prague in Winter tour journeys from the imperial city of Vienna through wintry landscapes to the historic capital of the Czech Republic, Prague. Unusual Christmas markets are central to the trip, with stops en route at the medieval town of Cesky Krumlov and Pilsen, UNESCO Capital of Culture for 2015 and home to Pilsner Urquell. The first departure is on November 27, with prices leading in at £999 per person including flights and breakfast accommodation.
