Not everyone wants to spend their holiday lounging on a beach, but you may have noticed that the majority of adventure holidays are advertised in hot and humid locations. If you’re the kind of travellers who prefer to cool off on their break, you’ll be glad to know there are a variety of wintry activities and sports just waiting for you to discover them.
Enjoy an adventure holiday that’s sure to get the blood pumping but won’t be giving you sunburn with this list of excellent activities for ice queens and snow kings.
There are few things as much fun as a husky safari. Sit back and watch snowy vistas slide by while your sledge is pulled by a team of well-trained dogs. You’ll need to make sure you’re prepared to wrap up warmly and be ready to embrace a back to basics lifestyle for the duration, but you’re certain to have an experience you’ll never forget.
Snow mobile safaris
If you’d rather be in the driver’s seat, why not give a snow mobile safari a go? An exhilarating experience, this is a great way to see some excellent sights while also indulging your need for speed. Book a guided tour to make sure you’re able to travel safely and enjoy some of the best trails.
While huskies and snow mobiles are all good fun, nothing beats enjoying a warm hot chocolate. And where better to do it than France of Switzerland, two of the chocolate destinations of the world. Flights to Paris and Nice are often slightly cheaper than in the warmer months, which can make it an excellent bargain destination.
For a unique adventure, try your hand at snowkiting. Best suited to experienced skiers and snowboarders, this is a high adrenaline activity ideal for invigorating holidays. Strap yourself into your skis or board, attach yourself to your kite, allow the wind to guide your feet and you’ll soon find yourself being propelled along the snow. If you’re not already an expert, you’re best booking with a company that already is.
Family Holidays in Lapland
Lapland is an ideal destination for families with children of all ages. Take tiny ones along to see Santa, or book skiing or snowboarding activities for your older children. Choose from unusual accommodation such as picturesque log cabins or amazing ice hotels, and even going to bed in the evening will be an adventure. Of course, you’ll not be wanting to go to bed too early, not when there are the gorgeous Northern Lights to look at (normally somewhere between nine pm and one am).
Another great thing about choosing snowy adventure holidays is that it might be easier for you to find cheap flights over the winter season, perfect!
