New Zealand’s summer coincides perfectly with our coldest months, making for the perfect excuse to head to the Southern hemisphere for a winter break. With temperatures that flirt with the mid-20s, December to February in New Zealand is hot without being humid, with plenty of sunshine and little rain. Thanks to the balmy summer days, New Zealand winter sun holidays are all about the outdoors. Whether you hop on a mountain bike to explore Rotorua’s redwood-lined cycle trails, don your boots to hike the lung-busting inclines of the looming Franz Josef Glacier or enjoy time on the water in Abel Tasman National Park,
bobbing along in a kayak taking in the rugged coastline, New Zealand’s landscapes really do have something for everyone. If you are in the land of the kiwis over Christmas and are missing the tree and all its trimmings, then head to the coast to spot native Pohutukawa trees which bloom a vibrant red as if decorated with lights and have aptly been named New Zealand’s Christmas tree. Enjoy sailing cruises in Aukland, hot-spring baths at Coromandel Peninsula and fast-changing and funky culture in Christchurch as the whole country melts into relaxation mode.
