Rio de Janeiro
Spend New Year’s Eve in a warm and beautiful location such as Rio de Janeiro.

Start planning your trip to New York, and be ready to celebrate the beginning of a new year on the street with thousands of people! Make sure to arrive at Times Square early, bring your bottle of champagne and wait for the Waterford crystal ball to drop at midnight, while stunning fireworks light up the Statue of Liberty!
One of Portugal’s islands, Madeira hosts one of the best New Year’s Eve parties of the country. Every year, thousands of people fly over to witness the fireworks and one of the best organized reveillons you will ever witness.
