Kangaroo Island Kangaroo Island

It may be cold in the States, but Down Under is refreshingly warm, which makes it the best time to explore one of Australia’s best, seldom-seen outdoor spots.

If you’re like us, most of those New Year’s resolutions have been…resolved one way or the other. Why not rekindle the 2013 fires by aiming for something really rewarding…

World traveler
Patagonia Patagonia

This South American locale is likely the one place that’ll stay at the top of your life-list—even after you’ve visited it a few times. Much of that superiority lies in the sheer opulence of outdoor attractions, from Torres del Paine to the Lake District to Tierra del Fuego. Factor in the seasons, and the allure expands exponentially, from hiking to climbing to skiing to stomping across a glacier… Maybe carve out a full year?

When to go
  • Carve through fresh powder in Alberta’s Banff National Park.
  • Hike and paddle through Big Cypress Preserve in warm-weather Florida.
  • Discover the seldom-seen terrain of Arkansas’ Ozark-St. Francis Forest.
  • Escape the cold by braving Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.
  • Snowshoe through the Great Basin.
  • Find your own moment of calm in 1.6-million-acre Mojave National Preserve.
