Snow Over Sand: Embracing Winter Outdoor Activities

With summer officially coming to a close this week, outdoor enthusiasts don’t have to mourn the end. Where2Next? Travel, LLC has curated active adventures that showcase the beauty of snow-covered destinations and feature activities best experienced in the winter months. From snowmobiling, snowshoeing, and ice fishing in Finland and Sweden to tracking wolves in Wyoming, chasing the Northern Lights in Alaska, traversing steep mountain ridges in Iceland, and exploring the White Continent with an expert photographer.

There has been a dramatic increase in requests for the outdoors from clients over the past year. Towards the end of last year, there were crafted journeys that reveal the beauty of destinations in the winter. After receiving positive feedback from guests, Where2Next? Travel, LLC has since added more opportunities to explore remote destinations and cultures in a way that’s only possible during the winter months. For travelers who prefer snow over sand, I offer a range of luxury small group and private, and custom journeys in Europe, the U.S., and Antarctica.

Antarctica, South Georgia & the Falkland Islands: Photography & Exploration While it’s winter in the northern hemisphere, Austral summer draws photographers south to take advantage of more than 20 hours of daylight.

To ensure guests return with the images of a lifetime, special guest lecturer and famed National Geographic photographer and conservationist Michael Melford provides photo coaching and hands-on workshops.
