While we were dreaming of a white Christmas, the Hemsworths were living it.

The Australian-based stars swapped surfing in Byron Bay for skiing in Austria this festive season, as Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky hit the slopes with their three children.

Chris and Elsa have been keeping fans up to date on their European adventure since November, and have visited Venice, Paris, London to name just a fraction of their holiday spots with children India, Sasha and Tristan.

Now settled into Austria for the festive season, the duo have been shredding the slopes with their little adventurers – sharing happy snaps from their ‘merry, merry’ Christmas vacation.

Seen cosying up together by a Christmas tree in one photo, their romantic snaps stood in stark contrast to another video shared by Elsa – where Chris is seen shoving her into the snow as his brother, Liam Hemsworth, attempts to push him over.

“Another romantic moment with my beautiful husband,” the Spanish-Australian actress joked on Instagram.

Along for the adventure were Liam Hemsworth and his girlfriend, Gabriella Brooks, and Luke Hemsworth and his wife, Samantha Hemsworth.

Liam and Gabriella have been dating for two years now, though their romance has remained incredibly low-key through that time. They were rumoured to begin dating four months after his split from ex-wife Miley Cyrus, in December 2019.

“My personal relationship is very, very important and very sacred to me. And I feel like in an industry where so much is put out on show, there are some things you just want to keep to yourself,” Gabriella recently told Stellar Magazine. 

“[Liam’s] great. [The Hemsworths] are great. They are the most beautiful people and I’m very lucky to know them.”

This family getaway is one of the first times Liam has ever posted a photo with his partner. And they look more loved-up than ever as they pose for selfies and slope happy snaps together in Austria.

On the other hand, Luke and Samantha – who share three beautiful kids together – recently celebrated 14 years of marriage after tying the knot in 2007.

“14 loooooong years of marriage. I hope the years get longer. Happy anniversary,” Luke wrote on Instagram of their anniversary.

As the Hemsworth brothers celebrate the festive season together in Austria, the bond between their partners seems to be stronger than ever.

Long-time friends and sisters-in-law, Elsa and Samantha were enjoying time skiing together. Meanwhile, Gabriella appears to be fitting right in as she poses with Elsa and the extended family on the slopes.
