There’s something magical about a white Christmas, it’s not something that happens everywhere.
If you’re looking for a place with guaranteed snow, or you’re looking for a vacation spot but don’t feel like sacrificing white Christmases while doing it, this list is for you!
Picture this: It’s Christmas morning, and you’re surrounded by friends and family, enjoying a warm drink while watching snow fall outside the window.
Then head out to one of these destinations, where White Christmas are guaranteed!
Come December, the Rockies are entirely covered in pristine snow, and Jasper gets first-row seats to this beautiful winter landscape.
The Town of Jasper, being the heart of commercial trade in Jasper National Park, is a convenient choice for those not in the mood to set-up camp; It’s close enough to the park that you can drive to it, but it’s still a town equipped with all the modern comforts.
Ice skating, hiking, skiing, or only staying indoors while warm and cozy; Jasper has something for everyone.
A magical city at any time of the year, Vilnius is the capital of Lithuania and, as such, a destination worth considering.
With historical buildings scattered amongst trees and a rich culture shown in every corner of the city, Vilnius is attractive even on a bad day but takes a whole new look during winter.
Vilnius is no stranger to large Christmas celebrations either, with its Christmas market and enormous town square tree.
Here, you’ll be able to walk around and explore the city while surrounded by snow and history.
A town straight out of a Christmas postcard, Leavenworth is a beautiful destination for any winter holiday.
This small town looks like the perfect replica of a Bavarian village and even has bars and restaurants that serve traditional foods and drinks.
White Christmas is almost guaranteed, but the yearly Christmas light ceremony is a certainty, and that alone is enough to earn this town a spot in this list.
While Vienna is a popular destination for Christmas, Salzburg is just as beautiful, with the added benefit of being smaller and more relaxed.
Known as the birthplace of Mozart, Salzburg celebrates Christmas with specialized Holiday markets, mesmerizing Christmas lights, and rich foods and drinks.
Here you can find the historic Hohensalzburg Castle, as well as dozens of ski areas within driving distance.
It’s hard to picture Russia without snow, at least during the winter, which means a white Christmas is almost a certainty whenever visiting Moscow.
Bundle up and get ready to explore one of the coolest cities in the world, known not only for its stunning architecture and world-class ballet but also for the humongous Christmas market that takes over the Red Square come December.
There are also beautiful Christmas festivals, fairs, and events, making a stay in Moscow a trip to remember.
While Japan isn’t exactly known for its Christmas festivities, Niseko is a popular skiing destination with absolutely jaw-dropping snowy scenery.
With sweeping views of Mt. Fuji and Mt. Yotei, you’ll be able to enjoy typical snow activities, like snowmobiling, skiing, snowboarding, and more.
Perhaps the best reason to visit Nisejo, however, other than submerging yourself in a beautiful culture, is the opportunity to take a hot bath in Japan’s world-renowned hot springs.
