Whereabouts’ Winter Holiday Destinations – Embrace the Snow
Here at Whereabouts, we love accommodating holidays for travellers all year round. For many, when the sun goes in, and the snow comes down, this is when the real fun starts.
Multi-activity holidays really are like no other, so Whereabouts are on hand to offer our favourite adventure holidays for those who love getting away during the winter season.
Three locations which spring to mind as some of our most popular winter and snow holiday destinations in Europe are Finland, Norway and Slovakia. Each country transforms into a winter wonderland towards the back end of the year, and for those looking to tick off a winter adventure from their bucket list, these countries must be considered.
The Eskimo Experience – Whereabouts’ Finland Winter Holiday
Famously known for its Arctic Lapland province, Finland is one of the most popular destinations for travellers once the summer period has finished and with all the different activities on hand to try, it is of no surprise why.
Enjoy this jam-packed itinerary with Whereabouts, as we send you off on a week-long adventure where you will receive a thorough winter adventure.
Experience all the activities that you genuinely associate with winter fun, as we send you on a cross-country skiing course where you can venture through pine forests and glide past scenic lakes. Explore similar locations on our guided snowshoeing tours and stop for a well-deserved lunch with a picnic next to an open fire. Live like an Eskimo and attempt to build your own igloo in the snow.
If you fancy it, you can choose to spend the night there – but don’t worry, we’ll be there for support! Also tackle one of Whereabouts’ favourite activities with husky sledging, where you will venture on a 30km journey to explore some of Finland’s picturesque surroundings.
This Finland winter holiday offers experiences that can only be found in some regions of the world. You won’t want to return home to normality. Whereabouts also assign one day of freedom where travellers can pick an activity. Either develop your Eskimo skills further with a session of ice-fishing or experience a snowmobile safari at an extra cost.
This trip to Finland will keep you entertained from the moment you step off the plane – come and experience one of Whereabouts’ top winter snow holiday destinations now.
