Whether you want to escape — or embrace — the cold, it’s time to start mapping out your winter adventure. From Cape Town to Swedish Lapland, here are our picks for this year’s top warm-and cold-weather winter getaways.
1. Cape Town, South Africa
Why we love it: From December to March, South Africa’s safari circuit takes a back seat to Africa’s most cosmopolitan city, thanks to prime weather conditions. During the southern hemisphere’s summer, Cape Town’s restaurant, hotel, and nightlife scenes — which rival major European and American metropolises — are at their best. Plus, it’s growing season in South Africa’s winelands, from Stellenbosch to Franschhoek to Swartland, all of which are just a short road trip away. If you’re still craving wildlife, try a marine safari to see the great white sharks or blue sharks off the coast; hang out with beach-bumming penguins; or explore the lush environs of the Cape Peninsula.
