If you are looking for somewhere to have a luxury Christmas holiday this year then it can be hard to know where to go as there are so many fantastic places all around the world. It will depend on your budget and the type of Christmas you are hoping to have but here are a few of the best places to consider.
Norway is a winter wonderland which makes it a superb place for a special Christmas. There are many exciting activities to try on a trip here which will provide lifelong memories, such as cross country skiing, whale watching and, of course, witnessing the Northern Lights. You can book onto Norway tours which will be the best way to enjoy all of these activities and more. It can also be a wonderful experience to wrap up warm and get comfortable in the cosy towns found in this beautiful and welcoming part of the world.
If you are looking for a completely different experience this Christmas then you could escape the dark and cold weather back home and opt for a beach Christmas in Australia. It may sound strange, but it is a brilliant experience and a wonderful feeling to get some warmth and sunshine in December. Australia certainly knows how to have a good time at this time of the year and there will be festivities in all of the major cities and the chance to enjoy some outdoor cultural activities.
December is the start of summer in South Africa which means that you can benefit from high temperatures but it also makes it the perfect time for safari and exploring the beautiful National Parks here. Seeing the world’s most beautiful creatures in their natural habitat will certainly make for a special and unique Christmas. Cape Town also is a brilliant place to visit during December as there are lots of festivities and people head to the beaches for relaxing, fun and games.
Home to Santa Claus himself, there is nowhere else in the world as magical and Christmassy as Lapland in Finland’s northernmost and incredibly sparse region. It feels like a completely different world up here and an amazing place to spend Christmas because you can see reindeer in their natural habitat, explore the snow-covered forests, watch the beautiful waterfalls and enjoy the cheerful Christmas festivities found here.
These are four of the best places to consider if you are planning a luxury and special vacation this Christmas. It is interesting to see how other countries celebrate this special time of the year and it is always fun to try something different whether this is sledding in Finland or partying on the beach in Australia.
