Winter Vacation Destinations Every Tourist Should Visit

on

The winter months are often a time for shutting yourself indoors, and wrapping up warm to escape the cold. But a growing number of people are choosing winter as a time to go on vacation, enjoying picture-postcard locations, winter pursuits, and new destinations across the US and further afield. Some of the best winter vacation destinations are in Europe, where old architecture, cobbled streets and picturesque towns remain true to their historic appearance. As a vacationer considering venturing out this winter, there are a few must-see destinations, particularly in Europe, that should feature highly on your list.
Prague, Czech Republic

The capital of the Czech Republic, Prague is a fantastic choice for a vacation, whatever the time of year. Its historic streets resemble the stereotypical fairytale world, with town squares, iconic bridges and castles creating the perfect, historic look. It should come as no surprise that this historic appearance is backed up by a rich cultural tapestry, dating back to the Middle Ages when the city was a pillar of the Austro-Hungarian empire. In the winter months, Prague looks stunning, and it offers a range of snow sports facilities to allow visitors to take advantage of its stunning weather. While the city and the surrounding areas can become exceptionally cold, there is more than enough to warm the cockles in this part of the Czech Republic.
Tromso, Norway

A lesser-known touristic destination, Tromso is the largest city in the north of Norway, and a haven for winter sports fans. A one-time candidate for the 2018 Winter Olympics, it is hardly surprising that Tromso attracts tourists from across the world looking for a slice of the skiing and snowboarding action. For nature lovers, the city and its surrounding countryside are simply stunning. Situated geographically north of the Arctic Circle, Tromso gets very cold. But its unique positioning allows for stunning views of the Aurora Borealis, which visitors and locals alike describe as one of the most spectacular sights in nature  (Image source).

Amsterdam, Netherlands

One of Europe’s leading tourist destinations, Amsterdam is well-known for its nightlife and liberal culture. During the peak tourism months, the city is packed with tourists and visitors from across the world. But during the winter months, when the city looks its most spectacular, there are many fewer visitors. This is arguably one of the best times to take in what the city has to offer, with its canals and cobbled streets looking absolutely stunning with a smattering of frost. If you are thinking of visiting Amsterdam, a winter trip ensures you get maximum enjoyment from your time there, without the hassle of swarms of other visitors.

This winter, consider visiting one of the leading seasonal destinations, for a change of scenery, and a more enjoyable way to spend the off-months.
