The most important decision when planning a New Year’s Eve trip is probably the choice of destination. The destinations for end-of-year trips, depends largely on the age of the group.
Depending on the age of the group, there are a few popular destinations: trips to Spain for primary school, to Europe for secondary school, to Mallorca for secondary school, or even to Mexico for university. Other factors should be considered, such as the dates chosen for the end of the year trip.
The amount of money you want to spend or the type of trip you want to take are also important factors. An easy and simple way to do this is through an agency or company, that can offer different options and arrange all the necessary preparations beforehand.
Most popular destinations.
But what makes one destination more popular than another? Why are Mallorca, Malta or Italy so popular for school trips? To answer this question, the purpose of the trip must be considered. For example, high school students who usually choose the Balearic Islands as their destination are interested in a festive atmosphere where they can celebrate the end of a crucial stage of their studies.
On the other hand, secondary school students may be more interested in a cultural trip or the desire to get to know other parts of Spain. Whatever the final choice, what they all have in common is the desire to enjoy some unique, fun days full of new experiences. Whether in English, in Europe, in Spain, multi-adventure, with or without teachers… end-of-year trips must always involve fun and learning.

What are the most popular national destinations?
The most popular destinations vary according to age and purpose of the trip. In our analysis, there are two categories. The first one would be end-of-year trips in Spain. There are many options for end-of-year trips in our country. The most common are usually trips to coastal and beach areas, but the mountain multi-adventure option is very popular for primary school students.
Besides Mallorca, Menorca and Ibiza as major national destinations, the Levante coast (Valencia, Benidorm, Benicássim) also stands out. A little further north we find Salou, very popular for its beach and its proximity to Port Aventura.
A different approach to national end-of-year trips are those that focus on cities with a wide cultural and touristic heritage. Some options are Madrid, Barcelona or Cordoba. Natural areas such as Cazorla, in Andalusia, Galicia, Asturias, the Ebro Delta or the Pyrenees also stand out for their nature and range of activities.
What are the most popular international destinations?
The second category of end-of-year travel destinations are the international ones. These destinations are more popular for high school students. Despite the distance, they offer a wide range of options and great possibilities to enjoy a cheap and fun end-of-year trip. In this group, Malta is the most popular destination, associated with high school and university trips.
Italy and different cities such as Rome are also very popular. In the rest of Europe, nearby destinations such as Paris and Lisbon as well as Croatia and Greece are the most popular. European capitals are also a cultural and touristic option to visit, without forgetting about fun. Prague and Amsterdam stand out.
If we go beyond Europe, we find destinations that are very popular for end-of-year university trips. Cosmopolitan New York or Mexico and its coasts, such as Cancun or Acapulco, are attractive places for university students. These destinations, being more distant and requiring a greater investment of money, are the ones that make them ideal for college students.
How to choose a destination for your end-of-year trip?
With so many options, the question is clear: how do I choose a destination? How do I decide between a trip to the beach in Spain or one of the interesting international offers? The age of the participants, the dates, the distance or the amount of money available are the most common criteria that can help us make this decision.
There are also agencies and companies that can help us in this process. This is the case of Natuaventura Ocio y Tiempo Libre and its wide range of destinations for end-of-year trips.
