Everybody loves the chance for a winter holiday. The only trouble is deciding what you’re going to wear when you go. To be clear we are not talking about a winter sunbreak. As those are nice things to have, it’s always good to experience one of the Four Seasons in its entirety. A holiday away to a cold country in wintertime can be a fascinating experience. The one question is where’s the best place to go? Before we discuss what to wear, let’s have a look at some of the possible options where we can take a holiday.
- Finland. Home to a Thousand Oaks and partly in the Arctic Circle, it becomes a winter wonderland during the months of December through to February. It is famous for its sub Altec temperatures and even the possibility of seeing the Northern Lights. In the north- east traditional people still eat reindeer and use sledge dogs. They have also built a home for Father Christmas which can be visited all year round.
- Russia. It might seem like a strange suggestion but Russia, the Old Bear is worth a visit. It becomes extremely cold during winter time especially on the streets of Moscow, it’s capital. Things are a little better in the beautiful port City of St. Petersburg. Both have charm. The appeal of Russia is its remoteness from us. It has one half in Europe and the other half in Asia. Despite its heavy industrial past there are huge tracts of Russia that are left unspoilt and worth exploring. Just make sure you have a visa before you go.
- Canada. It’s a plainly safer and nicer (and friendly) option than Russia. A huge percentage of this country is inside the Arctic Circle as well. It is actually possible if the weather is agreeable to to make a journey on land to the North Pole. Whilst that’s not advisable there’s always the chance you can enjoy one of the many arctic parks that have been created and see the effects of Winter on the natural world.
Now that we have decided where to go, what can we actually wear? First and foremost you will need a robust wooly hat of some description. Most of the body’s temperature is lost via the head. This means that it is vitally important that you keep your head as warm as possible. in fact you shouldn’t roll out wearing a balaclava. The other item of clothing you will need is a stout jacket. Something stylish and warm like the Mens Tommy Hilfiger Jackets that you can get from www.ejmenswear.com/men/tommy-hilfiger/jackets.
The real key to Winter clothing is to layer. Make sure that you have a base layer of a thermal t-shirt or under trousers and you will soon begin to feel the difference. A winter holiday has never seemed so feasible. Perhaps you will even be able to see some snow at Christmas time. It’s becoming less of a possibility in this country.
