If you thought a winter holiday began and ended with downhill skiing, then think again! Getting out into the snow is not just about enjoying the views (although they are pretty spectacular), but the sense of achievement when you realise you have just skied 15km in a day, walked on a glacier, led a team of huskies across Lapland or simply that you stayed up all night to see the awe-inspiring Northern Lights. Snowshoeing through ankle-deep powder, cross-country skiing among snow-veiled pines, or 'mushing' huskies across frozen lakes and sharing bright-eyed smiles with Sami reindeer herdsmen, with not a lift queue in sight, evokes quite a sensational feeling.
Exodus' winter activity holidays are winter holidays with a difference! Cover a pretty landscape with some white stuff and your panorama is transformed into a beautiful winter playground. Relish every backdrop this winter with a difference and either glide through on skis, make your own tracks with snowshoes or mush your own dog team for a truly memorable holiday experience.
Our winter activity holiday programme is simple. It’s all about seeking out alternative ways to have fun in wintery holiday locations, so you won’t find standard skiing holidays or snowboarding breaks here. We escape the crowds rather than join them.
If you really are looking for something different then you have just found it!
What the experts say about our Winter Activity Holidays...
Graham Bell, BBC Ski Sunday Presenter
"The peace and tranquillity of being in the back-country during winter is second to none and if you are like me, you will be looking for a new adventure away from the crowds. There are plenty of ways of accessing it: cross-country skiing or snowshoeing will get you fi t along the way, and there is dogsledding or snowmobiling if you want beast or machine to take the strain. If you are really energetic, maybe try ice climbing or a ski marathon. Whatever you choose, Exodus gives you the chance to challenge your spirit of adventure.”
Graham Bell, presenter of BBC TV’s ‘Ski Sunday’ and the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics’.
