Beyonce and Jay Z spent a snowy Christmas (25Dec14) in Iceland but they have now swapped the cold country for the sun-soaked beaches of Thailand.

The superstar couple wrapped up warm for a wintry visit to Iceland, sharing snaps of snowmobile rides, ice sculptures and a dip in the famous Blue Lagoon over the holidays as they enjoyed a festive family break.

One picture, posted on Beyonce's blog, even showed the stars standing outside in a snow storm drinking Champagne in front of a waiting helicopter.

However, they have now left the cold climate behind and jetted off to Thailand for a beach break.

Beyonce has been pictured riding an elephant and relaxing on a beach with her husband and daughter, Blue Ivy, who turns three on 7 January (15).
