New Year’s Resolutions to Enjoy Alaska
New year, new resolutions! The typical resolutions involve working out, eating healthier, and experiencing life to the fullest. Fortunately, Alaska is the perfect place to fulfill these activities in an enjoyable manner. Our Alaska winter car rentals have the cargo space and offer the freedom to let you experience all of Alaska and we’ve outlined ways to maximize your resolutions with the sources of the state.
This is probably the most common and typical New Year’s resolution. If you don’t like exercise, though, it can be tough to keep this resolution. With Alaska’s wilderness, you can use the landscape as a natural gymnasium.
The mountains offer prime ground for hiking and climbing, offering a workout for your legs and a cardio activity. Skiing, snowboarding, and snowshoeing are other great activities for getting your workout while having fun.
Spend more time outdoors
The activities mentioned above take care of this resolution, as well as exercising. Two birds with one stone, you could say. This is also the perfect way to spend more time with your family. Group hiking trips are not only fun, but will make sure the whole family remains active. Who knows? You may even see a moose or other wildlife while out and about.
Ice fishing, while a more sedentary activity, will get you out of the house in a relaxing setting. Take your Alaska winter car rentals out on the lake for some good ol’ fashion RnR with your fishing rod.
Try new things
Alaska is filled with activities that will keep you busy and interested in any season. Have you ever been ice climbing? What about glacier trekking? Dog-sledding? Well, in Alaska, you can try all three.
Our blog outlines the way you can begin ice climbing in Alaska. We’ve listed the equipment, and other tips you’ll need to know before you set out. We also explore dog-sledding in Alaska. Both are easy to get into with the right guides and companies. Most equipment is rentable so you won’t need to buy anything, or pack your Alaska winter car rentals to the brim.
Since you’ve been fishing, you have already begun to fulfill this resolution. Fish is a healthy source of protein and fats to get you through the cold winter. Add more fish to your diet to improve your lifestyle, and cut down on red meat.
The activity itself will also help reduce your blood pressure, which fish in your diet will help to keep it down. Fill that Alaska winter car rentals with fish for your winter dinners.
In North America, we tend to overwork ourselves. It’s time to relax a bit, and let yourself have some fun. The activities and sports mentioned above can help you relax, but the Chena Hot Springs are particularly perfect for RnR. Never been in a hot spring? Then this knocks both resolutions off your list.
The hot springs offer a nice escape from the chilly winter days. These are not only a great way to relax, but also good for fending off any flus or colds that may be on their way. The hot springs are only open to those 18+. The resort offers a variety of activities, massages, pools, the Aurora Ice Museum, and a number of other winter activities to enjoy. The smell found in the hot springs is from the minerals found in the water, but don’t let that dissuade you. Those same minerals are said to have healing properties.
