European countries are very popular among the backpacking community. This year’s trends suggest the same. Europe can be pretty magical during winters, and that is great for all of you that enjoy the snow and the overall Winter wonderland vibe.
Austria can be quite a delicacy for active winter adventurers. You can go hiking the magnificent Alps there, enjoy walks on cleared paths, and also find great accommodations to warm up and sleep.
Like many European countries, Austria is crowded with tourists mostly during summer months, but the Alps also attract fellow snow lovers. Check the best ski resorts in Austria and add them to your traveling checklist.
London is simply magical during winter. The temperatures are not particularly low, and the holiday vibe is very strong. If you enjoy setting the mood for the winter holidays, you must not miss London. Fairy lights, Christmas decorations, and cozy cafes with warm beverages will make you feel like you are in a place straight from the fantasy novels.
While we are at fantasy novels, London in winter offers something extraordinary for the fans of the most famous wizard in the world. You have guessed it, it is Harry Potter. This tour is a must-have for all of you that want to experience Hogwarts in the Snow.

Now for less wintery vibes, Croatia has become one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe during summer. As more and more people go there to enjoy sunny days on Croatian beaches, prices seem to go up.
Luckily, the winter season is a bit different. Not too crowded, plus it is budget-friendly, which is always a bonus. Croatia will give you precious winter sun, especially in the coastal parts, where temperatures can go up to 15 degrees Celsius.
Aside from sunny winter days, Croatia has amazing architecture.
Fun fact: The old town of Dubrovnik is quite impressive. The medieval look and feel of Dubrovnik were used to depict King’s Landing in the planetary popular Game of Thrones saga.
Do not miss your chance to see this beauty!
The gorgeous Spanish region is another great destination for winter backpacking. Winters are not that cold, so you can enjoy some winter sun here as well. The region itself is rich in natural beauty and scenery.
Andalusia is an amazing place to live through Spanish culture and lifestyle. Flamenco nights, sweet Sangria wine, and great food do not depend on the season. Tourists often pick precisely winter months to visit, as it is said to be a very pleasant experience.
Friendly reminder: Spain is a big country, so make sure you plan your trip accordingly or choose which places you will visit if you are short on time and/or budget.
