There’s no reason to wait for the summer to go on an RV camping trip. In fact, what you do on your trip shouldn’t be limited because of the weather either. With a wide range of fun activities for you and your family and friends to do, you can make memories to last a lifetime right in the middle of a winter wonderland. In this blog, our team at Rjourney will show you some of the many cold-weather camping activities you can enjoy on your next trip.

Go Snowshoeing or Cross-Country Skiing

Whether you own a pair of snowshoes or skis or need to rent them doesn’t matter. Cross-country skiing and snowshoeing are fun and family-friendly activities that people of all ages can enjoy. Take in the sights and sounds of nature as you trek snowy paths across the country.

Go On a Tubing or Sledding Adventure

Want a more thrilling and fast-paced way to explore nature? Grab a tube or a sled and hit the snowy hills on a tubing and sledding adventure! The cold air rushing by as you’re flung down the hill is a feeling unlike any other. Be cautious as you sled or tube, as there is the risk of injury. To better minimize injury risk, look out for any trees and rocks that might get in the way.

Go Bird or Animal Watching

Don’t want to do a ton of physical activity? No worries! You can take in the great outdoors all the same through bird and animal watching. Although birds are typically less active in the winter, it makes the sighting of one all the more special and spectacular when it happens. Make sure to not only bring binoculars but also something to write notes and thoughts in.
