Whether you wish to embrace the season or escape it, these destinations guarantee an unforgettable winter journey.
Contemplating a winter holiday? Then you’ve a whole host of excellent destinations from which to choose. Whilst the northern hemisphere hunkers down under frost, sleet and snow, the southern hemisphere welcomes its hottest weather. Meanwhile, the poles remain ice-cold, and the equator stays positively tropical.
Explore a snow-shrouded wonderland, spend Christmas amidst sun, sea and sand, or delve into jungle ruins. There’s something to suit every type of traveller at this time of year.
This vast, wild, sun-kissed country is a beguiling prospect all year round. However, venture ‘down under’ in December, and you can expect a festive season marked by barbecues on the beach, Father Christmas in summer-wear and fireworks over Sydney Harbour. An Antipodean Christmas is the antithesis of Lapland’s icy offerings, whilst New Year here is full of outdoor revelry and seasonal cheer.
