10 Untamed Winter Getaways

Where to find wild adventure this season

Socotra, an island 150 miles east of the Horn of Africa, has been described as the most alien-looking place on Earth.

In Mid-February, when the winter itch sets in, snow-sick travelers start browsing flights and booking their next getaways.

While Hawaii or Key West may be easy go-to's, we've come up with a few far-flung alternatives that offer more adventure and fewer crowds. This year, instead of sipping a Margarita and listening to Jimmy Buffet, why not snorkel with stingless jellyfish, hang out with the world’s largest puffin colony or see a rare Dragon’s Blood Tree while paragliding over an Indian Ocean archipelago? 

Warning: These trips are not for the faint of heart. Trekking, bumpy roads, and an adventurous attitude are a must.
