Theres just something about going on holiday that makes us all a little more inclined to try something new; perhaps you fancy embracing an aspect of the local culture that is rarely found elsewhere, or have an urge to try a new activity that youve never done before. If so, then you cant help but be enchanted by the captivating Bavarian Forest in winter with its snow-capped mountains, peaceful valleys and picture perfect villages and towns. This tour proved extremely popular when first introduced in 2017, staying on the edge of Germanys oldest National Park, is full of wonderful winter experiences including visits to a husky farm, igloo village and a tree top walk plus a trip to the magical town of Passau.
