If your heart is set on a European island vacation this winter, there are several stunning island destinations where you can escape the cold to enjoy some warm winter weather.

If you’re not sure exactly where you’d like to go, head to the south of the continent for some of the warmest countries in Europe during winter.

The Canary Islands

Seven islands make up this part of Spain, each with its own unique offers. The most popular destinations include Lanzarote, La Palma, Tenerife, and Gran Canaria.


Cyprus has snow on the mountain in winter, and there is a small but good ski field offering around six runs from beginner to advanced.


The Greek Islands are not just perfect for those looking for milder winter temperatures but also for a laid back vibe with plenty to explore.

Crete & Rhodes

If you’re more interested in an urban environment. With plenty of history, both modern and ancient, Athens is one of the most interesting in Europe.


The home of tapas and flamenco, there is so much to do in Seville. From the Real Alcázar to the Seville Cathedral and the magical Plaza España.

With a pretty good all year round population, this part of Spain can still attract quite a lot of visitors in winter, so you’ll have plenty of options, but it is still advised to plan for the best prices.
