Traveled during New Year's and I couldn't have asked for a better time to go and group dynamic. Belize offered the best combination of relaxing one day and then going on an adventure the other! Belize has some of the clearest waters for snorkeling. We saw lots of fish and ate some delicious food along the way! The Mayan temples were awe inspiring. I would go back in a heartbeat!

—Paul Carlo, EF Ultimate Break traveler

New Year’s in Belize: Rainforests, Reefs & Ruins

You truly feel like you’re in a fairy tale. Everywhere you go is so magical and it doesn’t feel real. Our Tour Director was the BEST. She made everything so smooth and relaxing, but also was considerate of what everyone wanted to do. If you want to experience a stress-free trip around the UK and Ireland, definitely book this one! I couldn’t imagine a better experience.

—Kimberly, EF Ultimate Break traveler

New Year’s tours worth celebrating

Skip the overpriced, overcrowded bars in your hometown—ring in the New Year somewhere extraordinary.

New Year’s in Florence: Venice, Florence & Rome

10 days. 3 cities.

In addition to seeing fireworks light up the iconic Tuscan sky and raising a glass (or two) of Prosecco to the New Year, you’ll ramble through the 118 islands that make up the city of Venice, see world-famous art by Michelangelo in Florence and Rome, and take in the spectacular Italian countryside. Saying there’s a lot to do is an understatement, but who says you can’t have it all? No one. No one says that.

New Year’s Eve in Amsterdam: European Road Trip

17 days. 5 cities.

This trip is fast. This trip is furious. This trip is nothing like the movie “The Fast and the Furious.” Get ready for a 17-day Euro-trip through five countries that will take you from windmills and winding canals to clock towers and cathedrals. Eat, drink, and explore your way through some of Europe’s most iconic cities, like London, Paris, and Rome—and celebrate the turn of the New Year with more fireworks than you've ever seen in Amsterdam.

New Year’s in Paris: Barcelona, Paris & London

11 days. 3 cities.

Celebrate the New Year on this three-city trifecta of travel tremendousness. First stop: London, where tea reigns, pub life rules, and buses are two stories tall. In Paris, the sunset at the Eiffel Tower feels like being in the center of the universe. But the night has only begun in Barcelona, where beachside bars beckon you to dance your face off ‘til morning.

New Year’s Eve in Costa Rica

10 days. 4 cities.

Kick off the New Year la Pura Vida style. The unofficial motto of Costa Rica translates to “the simple life.” But it’s less about going off the grid, and more about living a life jam-packed with rainforest hiking, whitewater rafting, ziplining above the clouds, and splashing around coral reefs under the waves. Pura vida is an always optimistic outlook fueled by delicious Mesoamerica. If you’re looking for all that and a little quality face time with sloths, monkeys, and dolphins, this is the trip for you.

New Year’s in Australia: Highlights of Australia

15 days. 5 cities.

Think about the kinds of things you would fly halfway around the world for: a One Direction reunion show, a voucher for no more student debt, maybe a lifetime supply of buff chick dip? Yeah, we know it would take something awesome to drop everything and go, but that’s exactly what a New Year’s trip to Australia is. Awesome. Pose for underwater pics in the Great Barrier Reef, make friends with miniature penguins, take in the unparalleled nightlife of Melbourne, and more.
