Welcome in the Christmas season and enjoy a festive escorted tour of German Christmas Markets with The Camping and Caravanning Club’s Worldwide Travel Service, Carefree.
The eight-day tour departs on December 5, 2010 and travels around Germany’s most vibrant, traditional Christmas Markets before returning on December 12.
Club Tour guides, Geoff and Jennie Dawson, will lead campers around world famous markets including Cologne and Rüdesheim-am-Rhein plus the tour will travel off the beaten track to rural areas such as the quaint town of Ahrweiler.
The Club’s Travel Services Director, Richard Grimsdale, is certain the trip will be a resounding success and he said: “Our Christmas Market Tour is the perfect way to experience the German Christmas celebration.
“Marvel over the picturesque web of twinkling lights, smell the spicy haze of Glühwein and enjoy the morish scent of slowly roasting almonds to truly get into the festive spirit.
“Our Carefree holidays are tailor-made to cater for all of our members’ needs from insurance, booking ferries and campsites to a fully inclusive holiday.
“So seize the opportunity and book your spot to soak up the local culture, make new friends and buy those last minute Christmas gifts!”
The trip costs just £675 which is based on two people sharing a caravan or motorhome. It also includes the cost of ferry travel.
Carefree is also partnering with DFDS Seaways to offer members the choice of two additional Christmas Market Cruise Breaks.
Members can enjoy a four-night Christmas Market break to Bruges from just £214 per person. The tour departs on November 29 and December 4 and 13, 2010.
DFDS Seaways are also offering a four-night Christmas Market Cruise break to Cologne. The tour departs from Newcastle on December 3, 11 and 18, 2010 and costs from £242 per person.
