It may be cold outside but that only means it’s the perfect time to go skiing or snowboarding here in Zermatt. Even if you’ve never been before, you can have beginner’s lessons to ensure you’re not on thin ice or that you get cold feet when it comes to the slopes, whereas there’s more advanced slopes if you’re feeling particularly confident. Zermatt’s landscape is particularly stunning and sure to take your breath away. The mountain peaks, particularly the Breithorn which stands tall at 4,000 metres, offer a tranquil and peaceful backdrop when you’re exploring the area. Zermatt’s natural wonders will certainly lift your spirits after the Christmas season and give you the chance to experience the holiday of a lifetime.

It’s not surprising that every child dreams of visiting Disneyland Paris. When you step through those pearly gates, every Disney film or cartoon you’ve ever seen comes to life in front of your very eyes. This American-derived theme park is much more than just rides and games – it provides a complete fairy-tale experience that visitors of all ages will adore.
Probably the most recognisable feature of the park is the Sleeping Beauty Castle that stands proudly in the centre of Fantasyland – one of the park’s 5 enchanting lands waiting to be explored. Each land has a unique theme from the American Wild West and buccaneering adventure, to bewitching fairy-tales and outer space. Within these lands are some timeless rides including ‘Peter Pan’s Flight’ and ‘it’s a small world’ that were first created in the early years of Disneyland America. There are also some new and improved rides including an even faster ‘Space Mountain: Mission 2’ for those in search of a thrill.
Get up close and personal with your favourite Disney characters that can often be seen in wandering around the various lands – and for any adults planning a trip – it’s perfectly acceptable to request a photo! Make sure you check out the times for the daily Disney Parade – an absolute must for your Disney schedule, with beloved Disney characters parading on past, to well-known Disney tunes.
If as a child, you didn’t get the chance to visit Disneyland Paris, it’s certainly not too late to be a part of the magic. A trip to Disneyland is sure to bring out your inner-child, and once you’re done running between the themed lands, head over to Disney Village, which has an array of bars, nightclubs, restaurants and live music performances.
Whether you’re visiting Disneyland Paris for a dedicated holiday or simply a day trip from the French capital, the Park is easily accessible by public transport from the city centre. Take the RER A commuter train from the Nation stations or the Chatelet-les-Halles, which will deliver you conveniently to the entrance of Disneyland Paris.
