Winter and cold-weather travel means getting out and active while finding time for simple pleasures—the first bracing breaths of a cold climate as we leave the airport, laughing with locals at the neighborhood pub after an invigorating ski run; startling some wildlife on a cross-country trail. When we’re planning our cold-weather trips, it’s these unexpected moments that we look forward to. But there is also the wonderful stuff that we know to expect: the thrill of that first—and second, and third—run down the mountain; the warm drinks at the lodge; the cacophony of languages in the ski lift line. Winter is coming, AFAR travelers: where will you spend it?
