Lviv is a dreamy city, whose charm only grows at Christmas time. Experience winter in one of the country’s most beautiful cities. Skate in the ice rink in the main square and drink mulled wine while wandering the cobblestone streets under shimmering lights. Visit the lively Christmas Markets to sample some Ukrainian donuts, pick up some local delicacies, or shop for handmade gifts. Bring in the New Year the Lviv way, with celebrations going on across the city.

We’ll travel up into the dreamy Carpathian Mountains, to Bukovel, the biggest and best ski resort in Ukraine – and in Eastern Europe!

Meet locals, see Ukrainian Christmas traditions as the locals have celebrated for centuries. Experience a traditional dinner the house of one of the villagers!
