When we say “winter”, what do you think of? Long, cold months? 4pm sunsets? Dreary skies and waiting for the central heating to kick in?
Well, not us. At Exodus, winter means endless snowy landscapes and the spirit of adventure. It means hurtling down a bobsled track and relaxing in hot springs, driving a snowmobile and watching the Northern Lights. It means adventure.
These are our top 10 truly unforgettable winter moments…
Go adventuring with dogsleds
Dash breathlessly through the snow, pulled by a tirelessly energetic team of huskies. Dogsledding is a high-speed thrill, and the chance to bond with your team of gorgeous animals makes it all the more rewarding.
Build your own igloo
Want a real sense of accomplishment? Nothing beats spending the night in an igloo that you built with your own two hands. Surprisingly warm on the inside, they make for a comfortable evening, too!
Hot spring dips while the snow falls
Let the delightfully warm water bubbling up from the earth embrace you. There’s no feeling so relaxing as watching flakes of snow gently fall before melting as they meet the rising steam, all while soaking in a natural hot spring.
Learn to cross-country ski on a frozen lake
Cross-country skiing takes a little mastering, but once you “get the glide”, there’s nothing like it. It’s freedom, peaceful and thrilling simultaneously as you drift over the vast white canvas that is a frozen lake.
Discover the freedom of snowshoes
We sometimes take trekking for granted, but as a rule, the more naturally beautiful the place, the less accessible. Such is the case with snow-covered landscapes. Snowshoes open these landscapes up to exploration; go further than you’ve ever gone before.
Sleep in a hotel made of ice
Every year, master craftspeople and designers labour for weeks to construct a shockingly beautiful yet ultimately fleeting building: the ice hotel. Every year it’s built differently, and every year it melts eventually, so don’t miss your chance to witness it.
Feel the Force on 3G bobsled
When you think of a bobsled, you might imagine a playful, gentle slide down a hill. The truth is that bobsleds hurtle down the track at astonishing speeds, generating 3G of force. It’s an adrenaline rush like no other.
Drive a snowmobile across the wilderness
Experience the power of a modern machine contrasted with the wonder of a natural landscape. Snowmobiling is an exciting activity, and the sense of power and freedom you’ll feel will stay with you.
Conquer a ski marathon
Put your endurance to the test! Once you’re confident enough on cross-country skis to tackle one of these epic challenges, you can experience the thrilling contest as few others ever get to.
Watch the Northern Lights
Nature’s most mysterious, magical sight, the Aurora Borealis is a natural phenomenon of unrivalled beauty and wonder. Whether you want to carefully set up the perfect shot or just happily soak up the show, this is truly a perfect wintery moment.
