Christmas is a period that many of us spend away from home. Wanting to experience the Christmas spirit in a unique winter setting, we wonder where to go for a holiday during the festive season. It often happens that the choice falls on the mountains. Beautifully snow-covered ski slopes, fragrant Christmas trees, and even sleigh rides – such a vision of Christmas is the dream of many of us!
If you're wondering where to go to the mountains for Christmas and how to find the right offer and package for yourself, we invite you to read this article.
Christmas in the Mountains - Where to Go?
During the holidays, Poles decidedly choose southern Poland. Data presented by Yanosik Autoplac clearly indicate that the top 5 most frequently chosen destinations during the holidays, as well as on New Year's Eve, are the counties of Tatra, Cieszyn, Nowy Targ, Kłodzko, and Żywiec.
Mountain landscapes are probably the most desired Christmas view outside the window. It's not surprising, as for several years now, we can expect snow during the holidays mainly in the mountains or on artificially snow-covered ski slopes.
Christmas Eve dinner in a hotel, sleigh rides in the forest, and a bonfire with hot chocolate and mulled wine are the perfect idea for celebrating the holidays with the closest family. If you want to extend this time, you can even consider extending the holiday until New Year's Eve. A few extra days spent on the ski slopes not only provide good entertainment but also serve as great physical training.
Christmas in Wisła with Full Board - Hotel Package
When planning a holiday trip to the mountains, all you have to do is choose your destination. If you want to avoid crowds on the local promenade and long traffic jams on the access roads, choose Wisła, a beautifully located town in the Silesian Beskids. Wisła is an important recreational and sports center. This is where Adam Małysz's ski jump is located, numerous competitions are held here, including the Wisła Rally, and nearby is the second-highest peak in Poland - Babia Góra (1,725 meters above sea level).
Wisła is also a great place for all winter sports enthusiasts. There are several ski resorts here with varied downhill slopes. All these attractions mean that Wisła also has an extensive accommodation base. So how do you choose the right hotel package for an organized Christmas?
Certainly, it's a good idea to follow recommendations from friends and positive Google reviews. If you're thinking about spending an active day skiing or snowboarding between Christmas breakfast and lunch, choose a hotel close to the ski resort. Hotel Vestina in Wisła Malinka is located right next to two ski resorts: one with artificial snow, well-lit slopes, and equipment rental if needed.
The facility has a professional, locked ski room with glove and boot dryers, and guests of the hotel can reach the ski slope in just a few minutes. After demanding descents, you can relax in the intimate hotel spa. Here, you can exclusively reserve a dry sauna, Jacuzzi, and a salt cave. This is a great opportunity not only to stay in shape but also to strengthen your immune system during the winter season.
Hotel Vestina offers the "Christmas in the Mountains with Full Board" package, which includes accommodation in a cozy room, varied buffet breakfast, Christmas Eve dinner, and dinner on the other days of your stay.
Christmas in the Mountains with Children
Christmas is primarily a time spent with family. Therefore, when considering where to go for Christmas, we often wonder if a particular facility also has amenities and attractions for children. Hotel Vestina in Wisła has all the amenities for the little ones: a cot, a bottle warmer, extra pillows and blankets, a baby bath, and a potty. The hotel also has a playroom, children's books, and family board games. Older children can have fun playing ping pong or billiards. The ski resorts right next to the hotel are also prepared for skiing lessons for beginners because they have nursery slopes, and children in "kindergartens" learn to ski under the guidance of instructors.
Corporate Christmas Eve in a Mountain Hotel
Christmas is also a time of intensive meetings and corporate Christmas Eve dinners, especially in times when many people still work remotely or in a hybrid way. The Hotel Vestina has a large conference room where you can organize an event for up to 100 people. Corporate Christmas Eve dinners are also held in the restaurant area, and for those who dream of a regional grilled dinner suspended over a large bonfire, the hotel can organize a Christmas Eve feast in the Grill Hut to the accompaniment of mountain carols.
We hope that after reading this article, no one will hesitate for too long about where to go for Christmas. The Polish mountains are the perfect place to relax and celebrate with your family.
