Preparing To Vacation In Cold Climates


Preparing to vacation in cold climates can be a relatively tough thing to be completely competent with. 
We’re slowly starting to head into the heat of summer, and as this develops we can often forget simply 
how cold places can be. If heading to a completely different country and culture, we often might focus 
on preparing ourselves for that, and not the initial biting wind and painful freeze that we might also deal 
with.

Of course, you’re not unintelligent. You’ve likely packed your hat, your hand warmers, your scarves 
and thick parka jackets. If you know how to travel, you know how to dress warm and pack for a colder 
climate.

However, there is a much more varied degree of emotional preparation you might wish to carry out 
before heading to an environment such as this. This is because it’s easy to allow the cold weather to 
shock you into feeling displaced, relatively down, or even slightly trapped. This is not something that 
is rational to understand. Surely you shouldn’t feel like that when on vacation with your friends? But of 
course the cold can sometimes bring this feeling on without needing to feel rational at all. If this sounds 
like something you might experience, consider the following tactics:

Head Somewhere Gorgeous

There’s cold for the sake of it, and then there are places that are so radiant in their natural climate that 
the feeling of freezing doesn’t matter. Heading somewhere gorgeous such as near the ski slopes of 
Edmonton in the luxurious Delta Hotels Edmonton South Conference Centre will help nurture that 
adventurous spirit within, giving you little cause to complain about the weather around you. Also be 
sure that this place invokes a sense of adventure, as then you will form a goal that keeps you active 
and interested.

Bring Plenty Of Vitamin D

Purchasing or bringing Vitamin D supplements with you can be essential when transitioning from 
warm to extremely cold weather. For very icy environments, it can be worthwhile to consume no more 
than 4000 IU’s of Vitamin D a day. This will help your immune system function at optimal levels, and 
also help you fight feelings of fatigue that often shorter days can bring around. This is perhaps one of 
the most important considerations on this list, especially if travelling a long way to get to your 
destination. Travel sickness is no fun, but especially when you are jet lagged and dealing with icy 
temperatures. With simple methods of personal maintenance like this, you can spend more time 
appreciating the beauty around you.

Survival Pack

Some people respond to the cold environments differently than others. If you are of a sensitive 
disposition, we’d recommend bringing a survival pack with you. This can be a pouch you keep in your 
main rucksack. It should keep small medicines, a small repair kit for damaged clothes, and 
high-calorie, dense small foods. You should also carry may thick replacements for your thermal gear, 
and also wrap this pack with thermal material to ensure it isn’t compromised by the cold or damp. 
If experiencing an active vacation such as skiing for the first time, this can be a great personal 
belonging to help you feel secure.

With these tips, you can be sure that no cold climate gives you pause for thought from here on out.
