The best way in spending your time during the winter season is to go for an alpine adventure. So what are the alpine adventures you should definitely try? The top 5 are riding a zip wire, airboarding, climbing, sleeping in an igloo and racing across the ice in a go-kart.

According to World Travel Guide, if you want to have the eyesight of a bird and take a good look at the Val Thorens. The zip line at Val Thorens will be the Top 1 option for you, and through this ride you will be experiencing a fun crazed adventure with its 1,300m long zip wire. Riders will be passing over breathtaking views of the snow covered peaks from up to 250m above the glacier. You will also be having a good view on Val Thorens's powdery slopes, and ski scenes while gliding through the sky.

On the Top 2 is riding an airboard on the slopes of Pre la Joux in Châtel France. Riding an airboard while lying down on your stomach on a meter-long inflated board, this is definitely one of the best ways to spend your quality time this winter. This sport is rather difficult and newbie riders need to be very careful on how they ride the airboard especially during downhill speeding. Riders going out of control can avoid getting injured by rolling off for a steep price of unfortunately getting some powder in their body and sometimes even in your face.

The top 3 on the list is sleeping in an igloo. Kakslauttanen in Lapland Finland has the igloo you are looking for, and you can either sleep in a glass or a snow igloo. They provide you a sleeping bag that can withstand up to -32°C however, staying inside the igloo which has -3°C and -6°C will make you really want to wrap yourself up. Lucky night campers might even see the shining light of the Aurora Borealis. It is best if you bring along warm and cold resistant jackets and other warm clothing for the cold temperature.

On the top 4 on the list is riding a go-kart, racing across the ice in a go-kart is probably the best vacation for your whole family. The adrenaline you get from riding a go-kart is possibly the best you can have in your adventure. Taking driving lessons on the ice is much better than riding a real car on the read, the pressure is still there but it comes along with a fun vibe. The speeding, sliding, and skidding across the ice sensation was only made possible by ice go-kart riding.

The Top 5 and last on the list is ice climbing and possibly the most breathtaking alpine adventures of all. Climbing in the cold is already hard however, the thrill and excitement is priceless. This is for adventurers fond of heights, and even sliding down from top to bottom. The adrenaline you get from falling down from an icy mountain is much better than simply sliding down an ordinary water slide.

The best destination for ice climbing right now is the Canadian Rockies, which has multiple companies and resorts that provide courses for all skill levels. Try the artificial wall at Big White Ski Resort and experience the same fun from the real ones. There are more alpine adventures you should definitely try but the Top 5 given are the best ones so far. Subscribe for more updates on top alpine adventures you should definitely try.
