  • Top 5 unusual New Year’s ideas



    On New Year’s Even, most people usually go to a party, have a nice dinner, dance and drink and make resolutions for the upcoming year. And while this is a pretty fun way to spend the last night of the year, after years and years of doing the same thing for New Years, it’s not unthinkable that you should want a change.

    So what is there to do? You can either go somewhere you’ve never been before, celebrate New Year’s in a different time zone, join the locals in some fun traditions or do something that is not in the least related to New Year’s. Let your imagination run wild and maybe these top 5 unusual New Year’s ideas will give you some inspiration.

    Watch the first sunrise on top of a volcano

    Pack your bags for Tenerife for New Year’s and indulge in the joys of an island holiday. You can party, drink champagne on the beach and do usual New Year’s stuff, but don’t go to sleep early in the morning. Instead, go to the top of Teibe Mountain, an active volcano and the tallest peak in Spain.

    We’re not suggesting a hike after several bottles of champagne, but there are vacation packages in which your hotel offers to arrange your transport to Teibe so you can watch the first sunrise from the top of the world.

    Celebrate on a train

    New Year’s celebrations on train rides can range from the extremely fancy (think Orient Express) to regular night trains (which would be a lot of fun if you are celebrating with friends on route to a great destination). Some trains will have the option of full course meals, entertainment and champagne, but if you want a more hands-on approach you can bring your own food basket and enjoy the good company of friends or family.

    Party in the Swiss Alps

    Around Christmas and New Year’s, the ski resorts in the Swiss Alps become a bustle of activity. The winter season in the Alps is not only a great time of the year for winter sports addicts, but also for music lovers – one of the best jazz music festivals in the world takes place in Montreux, Switzerland for example. And if you still feel up to it, you can start the new year with a boisterous snowball fight.

    Spend the last night in a desert caravan

    For a truly unique New Year’s, go on a budget tour of the Sahara Desert in Morocco, and for the last week or so of the year you can reflect on what you’d like to do in the future while being surrounded by timeless sand dunes. But don’t spend all your time on introspection – New Year’s parties in a desert tent will surely be unforgettable.

    Go to the biggest party in the world

    Rio de Janeiro’s New Year’s party on Copacabana Beach rivals only the carnival – this huge party usually has over 2 million attendees. This event is brilliant, colorful and full of music, dancing and enthusiasm.
