Do you need to take a rest? If so, you’re probably already looking forward to Easter getaways for next year. There’s no doubt that this time of the year is the ideal one to spend some days letting off steam in order to recharge before the awaited Summer holidays.
Sometimes less is more, so it’s better for you to bet on national or European Easter getaways instead of a longer trip in case that you can’t take a lot of days off. For this kind of travels you will need to spend some more time in your destination to make the most of it.
Do you want some quick clues? In this post of the Lopesan Group blog you will find a few ideas of where to go on Easter getaways, so that you can forget about everything and find some little peace.
Are you coming with us? Let’s go!
Sometimes we need to write ourselves out of a corner and put the routinary things that overwhelm us aside, but we have no clue of what to do, how to start or where to go on Easter getaways.
Before giving you more details and presenting different Easter getaways, we prefer to start telling you which things you have to take into account when you are planning a trip, so that the experience can be more pleasant and you don’t end up overwhelmed during the process.
Take note and sit down to reflect on the different ideas that we bring you. Are you ready?
Even if it looks really obvious, we really recommend you to think about yourself and what you fancy doing on those concrete dates.
Many times we get influenced by trends or fares while searching for ideas of where to go on Easter getaways. Nevertheless, we tend to forget about the most important aspect: a trip is a present for ourselves and that’s why we have to choose it according to the needs that we have in a certain moment.
It’s not the same to plan Easter getaways to let off steam than a trip to visit a new city for us or planning some short familiar vacation looking for fun and the security of the kids.
If you’re planning to do a trip to Spain on Easter, you must know that the weather conditions are absolutely different depending on the part of the country that you want to visit at this time of the year.
It’s true that climate is always hard to predict, but there will always be some destinations with better weather conditions than others to do outdoor activities on Easter getaways and other places where Winter is not over yet. Which option do you prefer?
For example, if you want to sunbathe on the beach, what about visiting the best Canary Islands? On the other side, if you prefer to ski, the Kleinwalsertal Valley in the Austrian Alps might be a paradise for you.
The whole Canary archipelago has great weather every month of the year, with an average temperature of 22°C, radiant sun, pleasant heat, breeze and some timely downpours. But don’t worry about them, they don’t last for too long.
It’s undeniable that our environment always conditions us when traveling and that’s why we recommend you take the most convenient decision in the moment of choosing where to go on Easter getaways.
Don’t get us wrong, we are not saying that you must ignore other people’s advice. Listen and take them into account, but don’t lose your way and verify those ideas to make your own conclusions about the places that you want to visit.
You must realise that every person is different and has their likes and preferences, so your opinions won’t always match. Some people are more likely to stay near where they live and enjoy that environment. On the other side, others urgently need to get away from the daily routine and find new places. Which kind of person are you?
Once you have decided where to go on Easter, you must choose a concrete destination. There are so many options to choose that it looks impossible to take just one of them.
There’s no doubt that Spain counts on incredible places where you can spend some wonderful days, that’s why we have elaborated a wide selection of our favourite destinations, aiming that you can be open minded and consider them for your next vacation.
Gran Canaria is really well known for the different plans and activities that you can do there. Its outstanding weather makes it a true paradise for those who are looking forward to enjoying an anticipated Summer on Easter.
This island has many hidden secrets that you will love during your Easter getaways and also at any other time of the year. Would you like to know more about its appealing destinations? These ones are our favourites:
You will find a huge number of charming towns in Gran Canaria, such as Tejada, located in the center of the island. This town has been considered for ages one of the most beautiful ones from here and in all the country.
If you come to this picturesque place, you will be able to dive into Canary culture having a walk on its stone pavement streets, seeing the typical white houses and enjoying local food, such as gofio or pig meat in any of the restaurants that they have. Also, don’t forget to order their well-known almond made desserts.
Some other plans that might be appealing are going shopping to the weekly artisan street markets that take place every weekend or just spend one day visiting monuments like La Cruz de Tejeda and Iglesia del Socorro. Moreover, during Easter you can enjoy more activities in this town that you can not miss.
In the middle of the island you will be able to find one of the most emblematic natural spots of Gran Canaria, which is Roque Nublo.
