Four Winter Activities to Enjoy Outdoors

Just because it is winter it doesn’t mean that you have to stay indoors – in fact, there are lots of things to do outdoors during the winter months. Grab a flask of tea, wrap up warm in irish flat caps like this thick coats and waterproofs and get outside! Here are just four activities to enjoy in the winter months…

Walking – We are fortunate to have so much natural beauty all around the UK so you shouldn’t have to travel far to get to a beautiful area to walk in. From woodlands laced with frost, to wild seascapes, have a look around your area and explore the countryside.

Fishing – It is important to check the rules and regulations for the area that you are planning to fish in, as some places do not allow it at certain times of the year. But as long as you are permitted, fishing is a great way to enjoy the peace and quiet of nature and spending time by the water is always therapeutic.

Astronomy – The night skies are at their best in the winter, so grab a telescope and get out in the evening to a place with low light pollution to see what is going on in the cosmos!

Birdwatching – Many birds arrive in the UK to spend the winter here, and there are lots of places to go to spot them. Places like wetlands are a birdwatcher’s paradise in the winter, with many species of geese arriving from northern climes.
