2020 Itinerary

Head straight to Boston for a slice of history starting with a walk along the Freedom Trail and a stop at some of America's historical hotspots. The lamp lit streets and cobblestone alleys create a quaint picture postcard New England scene that'll make this a winter holiday to remember. Wander Quincy Market and later, grab a bite to eat in an Italian trattoria, or treat yourself to a seasonal brew in an Irish pub where you'll find a warm welcome and excellent food! Escape the chill with a wander around one of the many museums in the city.


Hostel included (multi share)


All meals to be paid locally

Optional Activities

Walk the Freedom Trail  FREE
Faneuil Hall & Quincy Market FREE
Visit the famous Cheers bar FREE

Get that festive feeling as you head in to snowy Vermont and the ‘Ski Capital of the East’. Stowe puts on an incredible icy spread and blankets of snow can be seen for miles around, an idyllic spot to spend a traditional Christmas Day. Use this winter wonderland to your advantage and opt for some ice skating, snowshoeing or skiing action on Mount Mansfield! Enjoy the old world charm of Stowe village and if 'Chunky Monkey' and 'Phish Food' mean something to you, then you're going to love an included visit to the one and only Ben & Jerry's ice-cream factory!


Guesthouse included (twin share)


Christmas dinner, all other meals paid locally

Optional Activities

The excitement levels go up another notch as you roll into Montreal for Boxing Day! With more French speakers than any city outside of Paris, expect a little European flair. There might be a little chill in the air, but winter in Montreal is no time to hide indoors - it's time to wrap up warm and get out there to take advantage of all the seasonal fun on offer. Not forgetting the Montreal’s buzzing nightlife.

Next up, it’s on to Toronto. For awesome views opt for a trip up the CN Tower, overlooking Lake Ontario. Experience the city’s eclectic side at the bohemian Kensington Market, a neighbourhood filled with boutiques, art spaces and foodie joints. Want to kick back and relax? Indulge in a spot of people watching from one of the cosy cafes on College or Queen Street, or enjoy a well-earned beer at the Steam Whistle Brewery.

Winter will never be the same again as you lay eyes on the spectacular natural wonder that is Niagara Falls, made up of three thunderous waterfalls, impressive at all times of year but you might be lucky enough to see the falls freeze during winter! Bundle up warm and make sure you have your camera at the ready.

Roll into the 'Big Apple' and head out to discover some of the famous sights like Central Park or explore the neighbourhoods from hip Brooklyn to laid-back Greenwich Village. Feel the excitement build as the city revs up for the biggest night of the year. You've seen it on TV, now it's time to join the party and soak up the electric atmosphere in Times Square on New Year's Eve! More than a million people head to NYC for the famous annual event, counting down the seconds to midnight when a huge glittering ball is slowly dropped and a ton of confetti is dropped onto party-goers. You won't want this night to end!

What our trekkers say

5 out of 5

Really amazing time, great locations and great people!

Reviewed May 2018

This trip was highly enjoyable, it was the right mix of planned activities and time for fun along the way. It is truly one of the best trips I have ever been on. The trek leader was invested in everyone’s time being the best possible. I think its a really good time to tour that part of the country and Times Square for New Year finished the year off in the greatest way possible. I would highly recommend.
