Packing up the thermals and digging out the swimming costume that thought it wouldn’t see daylight for at least another few months is what New Zealand Christmas holidays are all about. In this adventure-filled wonderland, Jack Frost doesn’t nip at your nose, Frosty certainly doesn’t make an appearance and roasting chestnuts on an open fire would be a rather sweaty affair. Instead, Kiwis head to the beach with a glass of Bucks Fizz in hand, to enjoy the beginning of the warm New Zealand summer. Replace an oven-cooked Christmas turkey with a selection of meat and seafood deliciously prepared on a barbecue,
or if tradition is what you’re looking for, enjoy an authentic Hangi with a Maori family. New Zealand’s North and South Islands come to life during the summer, with everything from surfing in Raglan and dolphin watching in the Bay of Islands, to embarking on the famed Tongariro Crossing and kayaking through the wilderness in Abel Tasman. Celebrating the festivities like a Kiwi is like nothing else, and once you’ve enjoyed a New Zealand Christmas holiday, you won’t want to go back.
