It is a self guided walk and the national parks are not closed on Christmas day. Great day to hike it I think. Will be less trampers than usual. And I think christmas cake, some bubbly, turkey roll and trimmings would be the perfect lunch at the red craters, or blue lake! You will need to check directly with transport operators. Google search or send email to info centre.

NZ National Parks never close, for the simple reason they don't have gates or ticket offices! Your only limitation will be transport. More likely to be transport from National Park than from Taupo.
