The new year is almost here, and that means that women over 50 like you and I are frantically planning. Planning and setting goals that we wish to achieve. Planning your travel to see distant lands or family members for memory making.

If you are looking for some great travel opportunities right around the corner to getaway. LivingBetter50 has found some great travel ideas for the winter months ahead. Since it is cold, beat the cabin fever by getting away!

Arctic Circle and Northern Lights Tour from Fairbanks

fall scents for your home

We traveled along one of the world’s most isolated roads from Fairbanks to the Arctic Circle on this memorable 14-hour tour through the Alaskan wilderness. It was one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen. Our tour guide Bob was such a great guy, he explained everything we needed to know about the Aurora Borealis. We passed by the Trans-Alaska Pipeline, crossed the Yukon River and reached the edge of the Arctic Circle.

Mount Rigi Winter Day Trip from Zurich

Boarded a train tour from Zurich, visiting Mt. Rigi, Queen of the Swiss Mountains at 6,000 feet (1,800 meters). Our tour also included a cable car ride, a descent down the first-ever cogwheel train in Europe and a trip to the sun terrace above Lake Lucerne with its breathtaking views over the snow-capped Alps! The cogwheel train ride up Mount Rigi was a new experience for us, and the views from the top were unmatched!

Twin Glacier Fox Glacier and Franz Josef Glacier including snow landing

This helicopter flight gave us the opportunity to discover the scenic wonders of both the Fox and Franz Josef Glaciers. We left Franz Josef flying over the wonderful blue ice of these two glaciers and the snow-covered pinnacles. These catchment areas, or Neve’s, accumulate years of Winter snow which over time descends into the lower valley of the Fox and Franz Josef glaciers. We had the most amazing experience. The rugged landscape was amazingly beautiful!

Golden Circle Super Jeep Adventure with Snowmobiling

What better way to see the most popular sites but in a full-size Super Jeep. An unstoppable vehicle specially modified in Iceland to get around safely where regular cars can’t go. Every stop was more beautiful than the last and so unique. The snowmobile adventure was so much fun and had gorgeous views

If you are going to be cold over winter, I highly recommend these awesome opportunities to be cold!
