People living in the Northern Hemisphere often escape the cold winter season by going to tropical lands e.g. places in South America. But did you know that some places are even better during winter? Rekindle your love for this cold season. How? In this blog, I’m going to list down the best winter travel destinations (in my opinion) in the Northern Hemisphere. Are you ready? Without any further ado, here they are:
Iceland – this country located in Northern Europe will definitely chill you to the bones and even more so during winter. So is the cold weather worth enduring? You bet it is! You will be delighted to know that there are some attractions there that will make you gasp in awe. If the Gulfoss waterfall impressed you during your visit to the land of fire and ice in summer, it’s even more beautiful when it is frozen solid. Checking out Gulfoss waterfall, Haukadalur and the National Parks Þingvellir and Vatnajökull is definitely a must. And if you’re getting numb from the cold weather, take a dip to Iceland’s number one attraction -the Blue Lagoon. This geothermal spa and the aforementioned attractions are among the best things to do in Iceland during winter.
Canada – Is Europe too expensive for you? Canada might pique your interest then. If you visit Montreal, not only will you be able to enjoy its European vibe. You’ll also enjoy numerous events. Montreal happens to be one of the most festival-laden cities in the world! Are you curious about Montreal’s best winter festivals? Acquaint yourself with them by visiting the popular WanderingTrader Canada travel blog and be amazed!
France – Winter is coming and the best way to enjoy the season in France is to learn how to ski in the French Alps. If you’re not fond of the said activity, then perhaps you might enjoy a visit to Paris. An all-time favorite travel destination, many assume Paris of being eternally jam-packed with tourists. I have no qualms regarding this matter but if you visit during the winter season, you’ll discover that the tourist count is smaller than in summer.
Bear in mind that this list is entirely based on my personal opinion. Therefore I hope that you’ll forgive me if I forgot to mention your favorite winter travel destination.
