Did you resolve to see more of the world in 2019? One new travel trend to consider when booking your next vacation offers two trips in one. Travel + Leisure calls them “fire and ice trips,” and they feature itineraries that begin in one climate and finish in another.

Imagine beginning a week-long vacation schussing down a pristine ski slope and then, just a few days later, unwinding on a gorgeous sun-kissed beach. That’s the idea in a nutshell. It allows you to maximize your travel experience with a wider variety of activities and settings, often in just one country or state.

Where can you take a “fire and ice trip?” Travel + Leisure says Argentina, New Zealand, and Iceland have different climates within their borders. If you don’t want to leave the U.S., book a flight to California for snow and sand galore.
