Press Release   •   Mar 21, 2016 11:36 GMT

Easter has come around faster than ever this year, but there’s still time to give you and your family an unforgettable experience.

To make the most of the long weekend, travel website Expedia.co.uk has revealed its top destinations for those who want to celebrate the Easter holidays in style or simply have a break.


What could be more exciting for children then a sleigh ride with Reindeer or snowmobiling in this beautiful region? With the snow still hanging around this Easter, Lapland makes for a truly magical getaway. Oh, and who could forget that a certain Mr Claus lives here…

For a comfortable stay in Lapland

Lapland Hotel Bear’s Lodge, £83



As if you ever needed an excuse to visit this enchanting city, Florence actually has a great Easter festival. Every year, Scoppia Del Carro or "the exploding cart", sees a cart filled with fireworks burned on Easter Sunday. This will be sure to excite the kids and you can spend the rest of your break taking in the fantastic architecture, food and culture the city has to offer.

For a comfortable stay in Florence

Together Florence Inn, £108



Our quest for unusual Easter traditions takes us to Norway and the idea of Påskekrimmen, or ‘Easter thriller’ as it translates in English. It involves a five-day holiday where people switch off their phones, put away their laptops and work their way through the spookiest, scariest crime thrillers they can find. Whether your family want to try this novel Easter experience or just see some stunning scenery, Norway is a great choice.

For a comfortable stay in Oslo

First Hotel Millennium, £158



The winding cobble streets, youthful feel and rich history make Lisbon a popular choice for Easter breaks. Whether you take the kids on the city’s famous yellow trams or to the nearby beaches and villages, the whole family is bound to leave with fond memories of ‘The city of seven hills’.

For a comfortable stay in Florence

Solplay Apartment Hotel, £147


Canary Islands

If it’s pure sunshine you’re after, then the Canary Islands are your best bet. Nestled off the west coast of Africa, these volcanic islands have been a mainstay for Brits past and present and will guarantee some warmth and, hopefully, some vitamin D. A must if you just want to play on the beach and by the pool.

For a comfortable stay in Gran Canaria

Bahia Blanca, £108
