Find Warm Winter Vacation Spots in New Zealand

In New Zealand, you'll find a variety of landscapes, including mountains, rainforests, fiords, volcanoes, and beaches. This is definitely one of the most beautiful warm winter vacation spots on our list. The diversity of the country makes it one of the best destinations for families who enjoy different activities. You can spend the day hiking the Milford or Routeburn tracks while other family members play at the beach. You'll have to book your hike in advance if you want to visit the Milford Track, which only allows 40 people per day to reduce destruction and damage to the environment. While New Zealand offers a temperate climate with small variations from season to season, the warmest time to visit is during its summer months of December, January, and February when temperatures range from 68 to 86 degrees Fahrenheit.

Explore the Amazon and Brazil for Your Winter Vacation

In Brazil, you'll find average temperatures in the seventies. The area experiences its summer season from December to February, making it a warm winter vacation spot for Americans. This is also the rainy season for the area, but you'll still find plenty of things to enjoy. A tour of the rainforest will place you in what many consider to be the heart of the world's eco-system. The Amazon is home to over 15,000 species of animals and hosts a variety of trees, flora, and fauna. Destinations in the rainforest that you might want to visit include the Adolpho Ducke Botanical Gardens, the Caratinga Biological Station, and the ecological park at Lake Janauari.
