Hogmanay New Year (5 Day Start Edinburgh - 2015/16)
Make your own way to Edinburgh and then check in to your hostel this evening. The Scottish really know how to put on a great show, and in the cool capital city of Edinburgh, this place really turns out all the stops for good times. Get yourselves ready to go, then it’s time to get the 4 day celebration started. We’ll take an orientation walk of the city so you can get your bearings, then head to a local watering hold to let the awesome times begin!
Sleep in, then explore!Stroll down Prince’s Street & the Royal Mile & maybe visit Edinburgh’s famous castle. Tonight, join the crowds for the Torchlight Procession – it opens Hogmanay with a pack of noisy, hairy Vikings from the highlands pulling a Viking warship along a “river of fire” through the streets.
Edinburgh - New Year's Eve
Enjoy a late start this morning, then head out to experience this awesome city. Take a stroll down Prince’s Street, head up & down the Royal Mile & get some pics outside (or take a tour of) Edinburgh’s famous castle. You could don some ice skates & head to the festive ice rink, or spend some time at Winter Wonderland on the rides, or do as the Scottish do & give some haggis a go. Tonight, grab your included ticket & get ready for the world’s biggest New Year party. With bars & street parties pimped for amazing times, there’s so much to see & explore so grab your mates & some drinks & get amongst it! On the strike of 12 the crowd goes wild, so be prepared to grab the nearest people around you for a New Years hug or a kiss (if you’re lucky!)
