Events To Travel For in 2024 and 2025

Plan your year around the celebrations

Unmissable events are happening all over the world, so what's stopping you from attending? Aligning your travels with major events is a great way to tick off two (or more) bucket list items at once, whether that's catching a major sports fixture or making sure you're in the right place at the right time for a once-in-a-lifetime natural phenomenon.

September 2024

The Moon Eclipse

A penumbral eclipse is set to appear on the evening of the 17th of September. As the eclipse progresses, Earth's shadow will make it appear as though a small bite has been taken from the moon's edge. You'll also be able to spot Saturn, a steady light near the eclipsed moon. As a designated dark-sky city, Tucson, Arizona will be one of the best seats in the house.

The Northern Lights

Aurora hunters will be pleased to hear that experts have pinned 2024 to be one of the best years yet to spot the northern lights. Predicted to make more appearances this year thanks to a high period of intense solar activity, Finland and Iceland are two of the best places to catch sight of them.

Diwali Celebrations
Diwali Celebrations
India's biggest annual holiday is also one of the best times to visit the country. Skies sparkle with fireworks, streets are lined with colour and the whole country has a little extra magic. Diwali is a time for coming together so you will be welcomed into this vibrant tradition with open arms.

December 2024

Christmas Markets

Visiting a Christmas Market is a spellbinding seasonal tradition, where the scent of gingerbread lingers in the air, cups of mulled wine double as hand warmers and everyone is out in search of a charming handmade present. The markets all over Europe are world-renowned, so why stick to just one when you can visit an array on a Christmas Market River Cruise?

New Year Celebrations

Due to the time zone, Sydney is among the first areas in the world to welcome in the new year. And they certainly put on a show for it! The fireworks display on Sydney Harbour, with the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House behind, is known for being one of the most stunning displays in the world.

February 2025

Venice Carnival

First held in the 11th century, this age-old spectacle is a must if you want to see the artistic brilliance of the City of Masks. JW Marriott Venice Resort & Spa will be your ideal base, just a few minutes on a water shuttle away from St. Mark's Square, the hub of Carnival activity. And after a day of costumes and colourful celebrations, you can retreat back to the resort's private island of Isola delle Rose.
