Looking for a getaway this winter? These destinations are worth considering

Whether you’re looking to escape to warmer climates, hit the slopes or immerse yourself in a new culture, here are best destinations to fly to from Birmingham Airport this winter.

Agadir, Morocco

With temperatures averaging at about 24 degrees in November, Agadir on the southern coast of Morocco is the ideal warm hotspot to escape cold and grey British weather. Try the local cuisine and head to the bustling fish market to experience traditional Moroccan culture at Souk El Had, where you’ll discover an assortment of goods, with a little bit of everything – from spices to carpets. If it’s history you’re after, the Kasbah offers spectacular views of both the city and the coast, which is well worth a visit.


As one of the most spectacular countries in the world, Dubai offers glitz and glamour like nowhere else. Home to an incredible skyline, extravagant shopping malls, an array of gorgeous restaurants and the tallest building in the world, you’ll have to go big or go home as this is a truly unforgettable destination. Not only will you be able to wear shorts in December, you can fly direct from Birmingham – meaning you’ll touch down in the Arabian hotspot in just over seven hours. 


Feeling adventurous? For a stress-free ski holiday, let Inghams do all the work for you as you hit the Swiss slopes in style. From beginner to professional, every level of ski is welcomed – and if it’s your first time, rest assured you’ll be in safe hands. With resorts in the regions of Graubünden and Jungfrau, the picturesque Alpine surroundings are the perfect backdrop for snow sports and blissful evenings of indulgent cuisine.

Krakow, Poland

For an affordable city break, Krakow is a city steeped in history and culture, with a lively bar atmosphere, cute cafes and a gorgeous old town. Whilst you’re there, we recommend taking a visit to the Auschwitz Concentration Camp and Birkenau (around 90 minutes drive out of Krakow), the harrowing yet insightful memorial at the exact location where over 1.1 million men, women and children lost their lives in World War One.
