Are you looking for winter vacation ideas?

Now that winters coming up and the sun is showing itself less and less, people often feel like the fun from the year is harder to come by. Going outside is less desirable, and you’re left feeling like you’re stuck inside. That’s not how it has to be! There’s plenty to be enjoyed about the cold winter weather, and there’s plenty of reason to consider getting out for your very own winter vacation. Sure, you won’t be spending your days sunbathing on the beach, but you will be admiring what winter has to offer you.



One of the most popular winter activities people take part in is snowboarding and skiing, and it might even surprise you. If you’ve never tried it before and feel like it’s not for you, it’s worth considering looking into it. There are slopes dedicated to beginners, and you can often have lessons at the resort. Skiing and snowboarding might be your next favorite winter activity! Of course, the main issue with this option is that you’ll want to make sure you’ve got your equipment prepared beforehand, which can be quite expensive.

Ice climbing

Climbing is not so much a casual vacation activity, but it can be thrilling. For example, this Wasatch mountains ice climbing destination is not for the faint of heart, but it can be a great opportunity if you’re a thrill-seeker. With that said, climbing in warm conditions can be a difficult and exertive sport; ice climbing is even more so. If you like the idea of scaling mountains in the cold, then you should give this one a try! 

You’ll want to make sure you’ve taken the appropriate safety courses beforehand, though, as it can be life-saving! Don’t let yourself be caught in situations that you don’t know how to handle. Being out there in the cold poses a number of threats, so be prepared!


Winter only comes around once a year, and with it are a number of beautiful sites that you won’t see in any other season. Taking up photography for the winter can really help you appreciate what’s around you, and why the winter is such a wonderful season. When it snows, all of the places that you usually visit can look completely different, and your local part can turn into a winter wonderland - just waiting for you to capture it with your camera!

Ice fishing

While it’s not for everyone, fishing can be a relaxing and fun activity. Ice fishing can provide a similar yet unique experience. Those who enjoy fishing without a boat are usually restricted to the shorelines and around lakes, but when winter comes along - you have a little more freedom. Fishing on a thick sheet of ice allows you to get out there and catch a different range of fish. If you’re someone who’s always enjoyed fishing, then ice fishing might be a great way for you to experience something new about the activity you already enjoy.


Happy Friday! This post was written with the Life According to Steph audience in mind.
