Taking a vacation doesn’t always involve sunbathing and hitting the beach. Cold weather holidays are a chance to explore the outdoors and try some adrenaline-pumping activities. If you’re planning a winter break, here are some packing tips to help you prepare.
Have you booked a climbing trip or are you planning to go cycling, hiking or fishing on your travels? If you’re visiting a cold country, and you plan to spend most of your time outdoors, you’ll need warm clothing. In countries like Switzerland, Canada, and Iceland, temperatures can fall well below freezing. Make sure you have plenty of thermals and warm layers. Protect your extremities with gloves, thick socks, and hats. Choose sturdy footwear, and cover vests, jumpers, and fleeces with a waterproof coat. Keep your neck warm with a scarf. Look out for brands and products that are designed for the outdoors. You’ll need something more high-tech than your average puffer jacket. Search for reviews and compare prices online. You can often save money on popular brands by making use of offers like Journey coupons.
Are you preparing to whizz down the pristine white slopes of Whistler, St Anton or Val d’Isere? If so, you’ll need to pack carefully. Your winter dog walking outfit is not geared up for the snow-capped peaks. Make sure you have specialist ski gear that will keep you warm and dry. You can hire equipment like skis and goggles out there. But make sure you have appropriate clothing with you. If you’re keen to enjoy the apres-ski, don’t forget to pack some more formal attire. Faux fur is a great addition to any winter wardrobe. It will keep you toasty and ensure you look glam.
Are you embarking on an adventure in the Norwegian Fjords, or going whale watching in Alaska? If you’re cruising in the winter, you’ll need a mixture of outfits. On the boat, it’ll be nice and warm. But when you venture out into the wilds, it’s a totally different story. Pack some comfortable clothes to relax on your journey, as well as some smart casual outfits for dinner and drinks. Tracksuits are excellent for lounging around. Go for long-sleeved dresses or jeans, jackets and blouses for more formal occasions. For outdoor pursuits, you’ll need a thick coat, walking shoes or fur-lined boots, and thermals. Wrap up warm with a hat, a scarf, and gloves. If you’re trying out activities like snowmobiling, it’s also wise to take a balaclava.
Usually, when you think of packing for a vacation, you start digging out bikinis, sandals, and shorts. If you’re going a winter holiday, your formula will probably be very different. Your main aim should be to keep warm and stay comfortable. If you’re going hiking or cycling, you don’t need to look your best. Focus on layering and wrapping up. Invest in outerwear and fleeces, but don’t neglect your fingers and toes. Go for thick socks and thermals, and don’t forget hats, scarves, and gloves.

Finding the perfect bathing suit is not easy task. Whether you are petite, curvy or pear shape – unless you are ‘sample size’ and a ‘fit model’ you have to try before you buy. The swim wear and lingerie line I recently came across specializes in curvy girls and has beautiful bright swimwear in their collection. Vacation time anyone?
