My Perfect Suggestions for Winter Holiday Destinations | Travel

Anyone who has read my blog will know that I am a keen traveller. I feel it’s important to experience all that life has to offer, and do what you can to explore this wonderful planet. That means it’s important to try to go on holiday as often as you can. I like to try to go at least once a year, but it can be tricky to go more than that.
You need to consider when to take holidays, and where you might want to go. Now, for most people the middle of summer is the ultimate time to take a holiday. However, you shouldn’t discount winter holidays! These can be just as incredible, if not more so. With that in mind, I’m going to share with you some of my ideas for winter holiday destinations.
Norway
Norway is surely the crown jewel of Scandinavia, and it’s obvious why. It’s an incredible country full of beautiful people and beautiful landscapes. If you want to go here then you should always visit Norway in winter. It has so much to offer you from the lay of the land to the breath-taking oceans and glaciers. There are so many things you can do in Norway in the winter time, so you’re spoilt for choice in many respects. You could take boat trips, ride on snowmobiles and go ice fishing with the locals, as well as much, much more.

Lapland
If you want a winter wonderland with Christmassy connotations, you should consider a trip to Lapland! The legendary home of Father Christmas makes for a wonderful holiday experience. I would suggest a spot of whale watching while you’re there. I also think you need to take advantage of the destination and book a trip to see the Northern Lights. They are one of the great natural beauties of the world, and many people will never have the opportunity to see them.
Australia
I always think that the best travel experiences are the ones where people think outside the box. You might want to go on holiday in the winter, but perhaps you’d like to avoid cold climates. This sounds bizarre, but it’s the case for many people. So, why not get around this by booking a trip to Australia? See, Down Under the winter is actually their summer. So you’ll be able to relax on a beach, enjoy barbecues, and even take in some cricket if that’s your thing!

New York City
There are few cities in the world as mesmerising in the winter as New York City. Think about the Manhattan skyline blanketed in white, dazzling snow. There is so much you can do in New York when you visit. And in the winter, it looks even more beautiful and magical than it normally would. If you want to experience the trip of a lifetime, then I suggest you visit the Big Apple in the depths of winter. Of course, you’ll need to make sure you’re warm
Holidaying in the winter is a little more unusual, but it’s no less important. In fact, in many ways, it can be even more beautiful and fulfilling than summer holidays. You get to experience a different side of travel, and you can see places you might not normally go to. These are just a few of my suggestions for the perfect winter holiday destinations.
