With summer officially coming to a close this week, outdoor enthusiasts don't have to mourn the end. Abercrombie & Kent has curated active adventures that showcase the beauty of snow-covered destinations and feature activities best experienced in the winter months. From snowmobiling, snowshoeing and ice fishing in Finland and Sweden to tracking wolves in Wyoming, chasing the Northern Lights in Alaska, traversing steep mountain ridges in Iceland and exploring the White Continent with an expert photographer.
"We have seen a dramatic increase in requests for the outdoors from our guests over the past year," explains Beth Sherer, Director Product Development & Operations. "Towards the end of last year, we crafted journeys that reveal the beauty of destinations in the winter. We received positive feedback from guests and travel advisors and have since added more opportunities to explore remote destinations and cultures in a way that's only possible during the winter months."
For travellers who prefer snow over sand, Abercrombie & Kent offers a range of luxury small group and private, Tailor Made journeys in Europe, the U.S. and Antarctica.
New for 2022: Finland & Sweden: Adventure Across Lapland
Experience an exhilarating winter adventure from cosmopolitan Helsinki and Stockholm to the far-north wilds of Lapland, learning the ways of the indigenous Sami people on an exclusive visit to a reindeer farm, venturing above the Arctic Circle for a sled-dog safari and searching for the northern lights.
Tailor Made Finland: Helsinki & Lapland
Take it private and explore Lapland on a romantic journey filled with a wide array of activities for couples that capture the wonder of the region. Imagine soaking in a Jacuzzi while watching for the northern lights or snowshoeing beneath sparkling Arctic night skies.
Tailor Made Iceland: Winter Landscapes
Discover a land of cascading waterfalls and lava carved-moonscapes, soak in the therapeutic Blue Lagoon, search for the Northern Lights and witness the eruption of Strokkur geyser.
Tailor Made Alaska: Winter Wonderland by Private Air
The ultimate wilderness adventure, staying at a one-of-a-kind chalet built on a glacier in the shadow of Denali on this ultra-luxe independent journey.
Tailor Made Wyoming: Winter Wildlife Safari
A private wintertime journey around Yellowstone National Park, tracking one of America's most elusive predators, the endangered grey wolf.
Antarctica, South Georgia & the Falkland Islands: Photography & Exploration
While it's winter in the northern hemisphere, Austral summer draws photographers south to take advantage of more than 20 hours of daylight. However, the very elements that make Antarctica a dream destination for photographers, including pristine snow and ice starkly contrasting with sea and sky, make it challenging for photographers. To ensure guests return with the images of a lifetime, special guest lecturer and famed National Geographic photographer and conservationist Michael Melford provides photo coaching and hands-on workshops.
