Hot Springs in JapanThe holiday is around the corner and now is a good time to think and plan what you can do during your free days. Do not say you are going to spend them working or lazing around your bed because you deserve a break. If you are still not convinced, maybe these holiday ideas might change your mind:

A Blend of Warm and Cold

If you like seeing a brilliant blanket of snow and the beautiful icicles forming on tree branches, then maybe it is time for you to go on an adventure in the land of the rising sun. Japan is known for its surprisingly refreshing outdoor hot springs. You can soak and sit submerged in warm water while looking at snow-covered trees and mountains. It is truly relaxing and therapeutic. The only drawback is most of them will require you to take a dip completely naked. If you have a tattoo, it might be more difficult for you because they frown upon people who have tattoos — no matter how small.

Frosty Adventures

If hot springs are not your thing, you might as well head off to France and try your skill at ice climbing or dog sledding. According to Awe365, you can have the best ice climbing adventure in the Southern French Alps.

Scale those frozen waterfalls in the French Alps and enjoy the majestic view from the top. If this sounds too dangerous for you, Ski Line Limited suggests enjoying good old ski holidays where slopes slide gently downward. Best of all, you get to enjoy all the hot chocolate you can drink to your heart’s content.

Fancy a Cold Trout?

Going to a faraway land may not be your thing, but it could be worthwhile especially if you try your hand at a different type of fishing adventure. According to The Daily Mail, over 200,000 people visit Hwacheon, South Korea to experience the annual Ice Festival where the main activity is attempting to catch trout in an ice-covered river. Even if fishing is not your favourite, the people lying flat on their stomach trying to catch trout are in itself a sight to see. Besides, there is a wonderful ski resort nearby and you can eat native Korean food.

You have been working hard for the past year and exploring new adventures during the holiday season may be a good way to unwind and recharge yourself. Instead of lying in bed and watching TV, take a break and go on an adventure. After all, a vacation can give you the best relaxation ever.
