With the summer finally falling into submission, it is time to set our sights on the next season for travel. Here are our top destinations for Winter 2023, incorporating the colours of nature, a spattering of snow, seasonal markets, and an option for sun seekers of course!
The autumnal shades that hit the Maple trees in Nara from mid-November to early December are awe-inspiring. So much so that there is even an Autumn Leaves Festival that celebrates the beautiful hues at this time of year. Best views are said to be from Murouji Temple. From December you could even incorporate a daytrip northward to Jigokundani Monkey Park to see Macaques enjoying the hot springs in the snow.
This is quite simply the best place to see the Northern Lights, aka Aurora Borealis in the whole wide world. At 350km north of the arctic circle it is one of the most northerly places to be to witness this natural wonder. Make sure you have travel insurance before you go, especially if you are planning to explore the fjords and mountains of Tromso!
Evoking images of a rugged and back-to-nature way of life, Yukon is the destination of choice for anyone who wants to ditch the intricacies of modern-life and get back to basics with the elements and animals. Husky adventure holidays are just the ticket for this kind of thing – stay in a cabin, look after the pack, and have a go at mushing on freshly fallen snow.
Christmas markets galore, and winter activities to keep the whole family entertained! Lapland is a magical place to head with or without children. Top winter activities include snowboarding, skiing, and dogsledding. Make sure you have your wintersports travel insurance before you go!
Baa Atoll, Maldives
Whether it is in search of an alternative white christmas – swapping snow for sand – or somewhere to see in the New Year in bliss, Baa Atoll offers the best the Maldives has to offer. It boasts excellent diving, canoeing and SUP experiences and is a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Plus you get the fun of a 35 minute sea-plane journey from Male!
