Top Trips Around the World to Take in Winter

Whether you want winter sun or a chilled getaway, these adventurous trips know how to gauge the temperature.

There are two kinds of people in the world: those who love the cold and those who hate it. Good news: we have exclusive trips with winter departures no matter which group you’re in. Embrace the sharp edge of the season with wild expeditions around Iceland’s ice-packed hinterland, or run away for some winter sun in Mexico or Sri Lanka, where the only ice you’ll see is in your cocktail. Whichever you choose, these small-group adventures won’t keep you frozen in place for the winter.
