During winter months when many states can experience frigid temperatures thanks to the polar vortex, January and February can be a seemingly dreary time of year for those of us who hopping on our bikes or hitting the trails. Fortunately, our winter months occur while warm destinations in the southern hemisphere are begging to be explored. Imagine a river-rafting expedition on the crystal-clear Peñas Blancas River, bird-watching in the New Zealand rainforest with an expert ornithologist, cruising past the undulating vineyards of Chile’s Casablanca, or sharing an outdoor lunch overlooking the crashing surf of the Indian Ocean with new friends at Tsitsikamma National Park. Maybe it’s time for February vacation…without the kids.
