From Novice to Nature Enthusiast: What You Learn When You Start Camping with an Experienced Companion
Camping in a new place is always an adventure. And, if you are camping in the snow, winter camping will be a different challenge. Experience tells us that the equipment you have with you will significantly impact the quality of your time outdoors.
Starting with a fresh new year is a great time to set some new outdoor challenges and make your adventures more exciting. Winter camping, while not as popular in North America as in Europe, is an excellent chance to explore nature and embrace the cold without compromising comfort.
Camping During Winter
Camping during winter can feel like more of an adventure than camping during the summer. However, the lack of bugs and heat will make it easier to enjoy nature with all five senses.
You can hear the sweet sound of snow crunching under your boots, feel the bite of cold wind against your cheeks, see the incredible contrast between patches of pristine white snow and dark green pine trees, and smell a fire that crackles next to you. If you're bored with your typical summer camping, you can try winter camping – with the proper gear and knowledge. Prepare yourself properly and start with someone experienced.
