Ready to shred some fresh pow, or prefer to escape somewhere tropical? If you are planning a trip in December, January or February, you can embrace the icy weather or avoid it on these winter holidays. Winter travel might take you hiking in the Italian Dolomites or dancing through New Orleans jazz country. Or maybe you’d rather skip to the southern hemisphere where an endless summer awaits in Brazil or Australia. So whether you’re ready to carve the slopes or dance the samba, here is where to travel in winter.
Wander through a winter wonderland of festive cheer in Europe. This time of year Central Europe’s big cities roll out charming Christmas markets with mulled wine, carols, and artisan goodies. For a sunny break, head down under to Australia or New Zealand.
Beat the January blues in Norway, where your chance of seeing the Northern Lights is highest at this time of year. Or chase snow for your winter holidays in Switzerland, Austria, or the USA.
Defrost with winter travel to South America. February is Carnival and nowhere celebrates quite as ferociously as buzzing Brazil.
When you think Christmas markets, Germany, Poland, and Austria might first come to mind. But everywhere from Estonia to Croatia to France have won awards for their markets.
Post-Christmas it’s likely you’ll be craving a winter tour somewhere warmer. Chase the sun to the southern hemisphere where places like Brazil, Australia, Costa Rica, and New Zealand are celebrating summer.
