Updated December 2018

From Christmas in New York, to skiing in Norway, we’ve gathered together the places to go in December when the weather gets chilly. If you’d rather a little sunshine instead, we’ve got that covered too, in the form of chic Miami and dreamy Mauritius.

A praia...

Maurícia

Relax during December, with average temperatures of 25°C on the island of Mauritius. Kick back on picture-perfect white sands or liven things up with water sports or zip-lining through jungles. Go scuba-diving and plunge into the Indian Ocean at Roche Zozo, off Blue Bay on the southern coast, to experience colourful coral reefs and creature encounters. Venture south west to find wild dolphins and enjoy the revitalising spray of sea water on a catamaran.

Comer

Desfrute do luxo no Four Seasons Resort Mauritius em Anahita, com quatro restaurantes e menus deliciosos. O Beau Champ serve pequenos-almoços e sobremesas e tem um belíssimo cenário em frente ao mar. De manhã, escolha entre ovos benedict com caranguejo, pratos típicos e torradas. À noite, experimente o menu de seis pratos criado por chefs aclamados e premiados.

Estadia

The five-star exotic luxury of LUX* Belle Mare offers plenty of quirks and spectacular views. Enjoy a scoop or two at the ice-cream parlour, then head to the new gin haven IM-A-GIN. Take a sunset stroll across the blissful beach, or horse-ride by the waves. Head to the glistening sands in the morning for beach yoga, then hop on a red bicycle to explore more of Mauritius.

    Nenhuma visita às Baamas estaria completa sem os búzios, um tipo de caracol marinho. Podem ser comidos crus com sumo de limão, cozinhados em sopa ou fritos.

A cidade...

Nova Iorque

There are few places as magical as New York at Christmas. Slip on skates and glide across the ice at the Rockefeller Center, beneath an 80ft Christmas tree that lights up the Big Apple each year. Ride on a horse-drawn carriage through a snow-dusted Central Park or wander along Fifth Avenue for festive window displays and Christmas gift shopping in Macy’s. Visit one of many Christmas markets across the city and treat yourself to hot chocolate and snack on crepes as you wander.

Comer

Soak up the foodie joys of the secret burger joint in Le Parker Meridien. Try not to inhale your food, as you tuck into a melt-in-the-mouth cheeseburger, with all the tasty fillings, crispy bacon extra and lip-smacking golden French fries. Share a pitcher of beer with friends or slurp on a delicious Oreo milkshake. Order an epic chocolate brownie for dessert, with a big scoop of vanilla ice-cream, to top off a spectacular New York dining experience.

Estadia

Aloje-se no New York Hilton Midtown, onde as salas estão decoradas com azevinhos e sentir-se-á na casa do Pai Natal. Quando se alojar aqui, desfrute do ambiente sumptuoso, perto das principais atrações turísticas da cidade e a poucos passos de distância do emblemático Central Park. Depois de um longo dia a explorar a cidade debaixo do frio invernoso, enfie-se na sua cama super confortável. E na manhã seguinte, beba um café na cafetaria do hotel para aquecer antes de sair novamente.

A viagem de família...

Trysil

Soak up the beauty of a Norwegian winter wonderland with a visit to Trysil. Norway’s largest ski resort is an easy two-and-a-half hour transfer from Oslo by bus. When you’re not skiing greens with the family, there are plenty of December activities to keep you busy including sleigh rides and dog sledging. If you want a break from the minus temperatures, warm up inside with hot chocolate, bowling and swimming pools. Soak up the views of the Trysilfjellet Mountain or if you’re ready to ride the red or black pistes, you can drop the kids at ski school for a few hours.

Comer

Whether you’re skiing all day, playing in the snow or splashing about in a pool, feed your appetite at Radisson Blu Resort. Head to the Chill Bowl & Dine for an American diner feel, with bowling lanes and pool tables too. Treat the family to ice-cream, snacks or drinks when you’re having fun at the Pool Bar and need to top up energy levels. Visit the Hill Buffet Restaurant for a variety of American, Scandinavian and English breakfast selections, before heading to the hills.

Estadia

Make the most of family time with an apartment stay at the Radisson Blu Mountain Resort and Residences. Enjoy an alpine feel here, with beautiful touches of log fires and cosy lounges. Indulge in a full breakfast every morning, before you venture out for a day on the mountain. Or take the kids to the games room, swim in the indoor pool or take in your surroundings at the outdoor pool and Jacuzzi. There is a ski rental shop on your doorstep, as well as spa access, a bakery and après bar.

A grande viagem...

Bahamas

Fuja ao frio britânico e vá até às Baamas para passar umas férias de Natal inesquecíveis ao sol. Troque o peru e as couves por uma boa lagosta com molho crioulo e um delicioso pudim de goiaba, servido com creme de rum. A estação das chuvas termina em novembro e os furacões dão tréguas até junho, por isso dezembro é a altura ideal para uma visita que conta com temperaturas médias que chegam aos 26° C. Não perca o desfile de Junkanoo, um festival de cor e cultura. Segundo a tradição, começa a 26 de dezembro e é um dos festivais de rua mais antigos, remontando ao século XVII.

Comer

Be spoilt for choice with a variety of tantalising cuisine at the Atlantis Bahamas. With its 21 restaurants and 19 bars/lounges, there is something for everyone. Indulge in Japanese flavours at celebrity chef restaurant, Nobu. Enjoy the casual atmosphere of Virgil’s Real BBQ and enjoy a slap-up platter of marinated meats. The Point Restaurant and Bar serves fresh seafood dishes, salads, and key lime pie for afterwards – but its main selling point is the lovely sunset view.

Estadia

Treat yourself to an All Inclusive adults-only retreat, with a stay at Warwick Paradise Island. Enjoy the twinkling lights of Nassau harbour at night, unwind poolside with a cocktail and feel holiday fresh with a few spa treatments. The hotel has a great location, near the golf course, water park and a heap of beaches. A few days here will help you forget about all your winter woes.

Miami

The cooler weather of December brings a brilliant opportunity to explore this quirky, cool city. With lows of 16°C and highs of 27°C, you can venture around the exciting arts and beer-drinking scene of Wynwood one day, then sunbathe on Miami beach the next. For a Christmas feel, visit Santa’s Enchanted Forest at Tropical park or enjoy the merriment and holiday lights glisten at Pinecrest Gardens. Elsewhere, Yuletide activities include a classic performance of The Nutcracker by the Miami City Ballet.

Comer

Famous for Champagne and brunching, fish tacos and fresh seafood, Miami has some high scoring food joints. Make the most of the selection at the The Ritz-Carlton South Beach. Soak up the oceanfront views of Dilido Beach Club, enjoy crispy calamari and watermelon crush cocktails. Enjoy Sunday brunch in Bistro One LR: bottomless mimosas, Bloody Marys, and a vast buffet selection.

Estadia

Durma com estilo no The Confidante by Hyatt. Está localizado na mundialmente famosa Miami Beach com o seu bonito estilo art déco e oferece duas piscinas aquecidas e um spa no terraço. Deixe-se transportar pelos jardins tropicais, jogue pingue-pongue enquanto se refresca com umas bebidas e descontraia no lounge da praia ou junto à piscina. Caminhe pelo passadiço ou, se for suficientemente corajoso, explore a cultura descontraída, a moda e as lojas ao longo da Collins Avenue.
