With fall almost over, we’re well on our way to being truly in the grasp of winter. To that end, if you want to make sure you don’t look back wistfully on the winter of 2022, you might want to build a winter bucket list. With so many personal ambitions and inspirations, though, that can be tough, and you might need some help to get started. With that in mind, here are five winter bucket list ideas you should strive for!
1. Visit the Aurora Borealis
If you wish to see the special experience of the Northern Lights up-close and personal, why not take a trip to Finland and do exactly that? The area’s clear and beautiful skies from late August until April give you a perfect winter timeframe to travel and see the aurora borealis for yourself. Consider a camping trip if you can brave the cold, or rent a lodge and take in the view from one of the Finnish region of Lapland’s many resorts.
2. Write a winter story
A perfect way to enjoy those cozy nights inside during winter is to sit down and write something. Try to pen a short story – something in the region of 50 pages. You might find that you’ve unlocked a hidden creative talent! Or, if nothing else, you can have fun coming up with your own creative, festively themed story to enjoy this winter.
3. Try out ice skating
What better time to try out a sport that many of us watch but fear to try? Ice skating is the ideal addition to any winter bucket list. You can have great fun, you can really see how much you can learn in a short period of time, and you can simply enjoy yourself while getting outdoor winter exercise. Try and go with friends, family, or even that special someone who you want to spend the winter with this year.
4. Track a snow event
If you’re someone who enjoys winter weather, then you should try this one out. You’ll just need to download a weather tracking app and look for an area where there appears to be a large amount of snowfall. So long as you have a snow-ready vehicle and the experience to handle driving in the snow, you can make the time to try this bucket list idea.
Watching snow fall – even from afar – can be a truly gratifying experience. Tracking snow can also give you some amazing video and photographic footage to show off for years to come.
5. Help someone who’s struggling or suffering
A common sight during winter are people who are unhoused, looking for help of any sort amid the cruelty of this world. If you’re flush for cash, then you can make someone’s day. In that case, splurge on a winter duvet, a coffee flask, and a lunch for someone you’ve seen who’s in need of this help. You might just make their day.
