It’s also a tremendous time to take in cultural festivals such as the Rio Carnival, The Chinese New Year, the Sapporo Snow Festival, and the Buenos Aires Tango Festival. February is also a great time to travel to popular destinations and cities if you seek fewer crowds and lower prices.

We love to travel in February. If it involves hot chocolate, mulled wine, lots of white fluffy snow, and big mountains, you can sign us up — granted, we may be ski bums. Here are some of the best places to visit in February.


The Best Places to Visit in February


Norway

Dog Sledding — Winter in Norway — Frozen LAke
Mushing dogs across a frozen lake in the mountains of Norway.

There’s no reason to avoid European winters! It’s one of our favorite seasons for travel and a fantastic time to visit Norway, where you’re almost guaranteed to see the Northern Lights and enjoy some snowy days. Norway’s dramatic landscapes and many winter activities will entertain you for weeks. It’s a great time for winter adventures across the country.

Northern Lights Cruise - Norway
Nordlys over Arnøya, Skjervøy

Mush a dog sled across a frozen lake, snowshoe from mountain hut to hut, spot whales off the coast, ski down a fjord, or spend cozy days in a winter cabin. Winter in Norway comes with plenty of charms, and if your dream trip has been to see the Northern Lights, there is likely no better trip than to Northern Norway. We have been to the country twice in the winter and left wanting more both times.

We recommend Norway for those looking to experience winter but aren’t after the traditional ski holiday. The country lacks huge ski resorts but loves a good cross-country ski trail. Extensive networks of cross-country ski trails stretch all over the country, and it’s often joked amongst Norwegians that they’re born with skis on their feet.


Egypt

Best Places to Visit in February  - Egypt
Temple hopping in Egypt / Best Places to Travel in February

The mighty Nile has been the lifeblood of Egypt since the beginning of civilization. Along its fertile banks, surrounded by the sands of the desert, ancient Egypt prospered. Thousands of years lure visitors in with the remains of breathtaking monuments, a rugged coastline teeming with coral life, and a culture that has evolved over millennia. There are so many amazing places to visit in Egpyt.

Egypt is the gift of the Nile, so there is no better way to explore than a cruise down the Nile. You’re transported to a pastime as you cruise down the Nile. Egypt is one of the best places to travel in February because of its near-perfect weather — comfortable, warm days and cool evenings/nights. You won’t have to wake up at dawn to beat the day’s heat. Check out other great months to visit Egpyt in our post about the best time to visit Egpyt.


Paris

Paris, France in Winter

Head to the City of Love for Valentine’s Day for romance. Despite the lackluster weather, there are plenty of reasons to love Paris in February. The city is full of Parisians in the winter, unlike in the summer, when they escape for summer holidays, and the city fills with tourists. For this reason, we love traveling to cities in the off-season, and locals tend to be friendlier than when they’re inundated with hordes of travelers.

Everything is open, and it’s business as usual! This is also the time of year when fewer crowds and cheaper hotel rates exist. Yes, it does get quite cold in Paris in February, with daytime temperatures averaging 48°F. Get cozy in the cute little cafes, wander the art museums, and browse designer boutiques. Visit attractions such as The Louvre Museum, Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, Palace of Versailles, and Musay d’Orsay.

We love Paris for its wonderful dining options, walkable neighborhoods, inspiring architecture, and history brimming around every corner. There is a good reason it is one of the most visited cities in the world. And forget about the stereotype of Parisians being rude.


Thailand

Khao Lak Thailand Beach

Head to Thailand for tantalizing food, wonderful people, and lovely beaches. Destinations like Phuket, Bangkok, Khao Lak, Koh Samui, and Chiang Mai have ideal weather in February. It’s a great time to snorkel around Phuket, lay on the beaches of Khao Lak, or enjoy the jungle mountains. It’s one of the best times of year to travel around the country and explore all it has to offer. The weather is generally warm and dry across the country and rarely too hot.

The culturally exciting and wonderful city of Chang Mai hosts its world-famous Flower Festival – a three-day holiday full of flowers, dancing, and parades. As the weather is stable across the country, February is a great time to visit some of the lesser-traveled mountainous regions in the North. It’s hard to pick a better time to visit the “Land of Smiles,” but this does mean traveling during peak season with slightly higher prices and crowds.


British Columbia

Cameron And Natasha In Whistler

If you’re a powderhound, head to the Canadian Province of British Columbia for some of the world’s best big mountain and powder skiing. For many, the gateway to skiing in the province starts with the mega-resort, Whistler. However, there is far more to explore in the province, which has some of the best skiing in the world. It’s why we call it home.

Natasha In A Snowy Revelstoke Scene
This is one of the best places to visit for powderhounds in February.

The aptly named Powder Highway offers epic powder skiing in big mountain terrain. The route is largely the nickname for Canada’s 95A, a loop road that covers 630 miles through Southeastern British Columbia. Along the route are several charming ski towns, fantastic resorts, epic backcountry routes, cat skiing, and alpine lodges. B.C. is also the birthplace of heli-skiing, which promises to offer a vacation unlike any other for avid skiers and snowboarders.

Hiking A Ski Line In Fernie British Columbia

Big mountain riders are long familiar with the snowy stretch of Canada as the terrain and snow here are some of the best in the world. If you don’t have the money to shell out for the luxury providers, the seven ski resorts on the highway offer world-class skiing that rivals their helicopter counterparts. Each resort has enough terrain to entertain any skill level for days. Our favorites are Fernie and Revelstoke for the terrain and epic powder dumps. Check out our epic ski trip packing list!


Kenya

Safari Clothing in Masai Mara National Reserve

A safari in the famous plains of Kenya’s Masai Mara National Park is a classic adventure. Undeniably, the Masai Mara National Reserve is one of the most well-known parks in Africa. My first thoughts of safari in Africa were of Kenya and its wide-open grasslands. The fact that Kenya is home to the original safari and the Masai Mara is the industry’s epicenter should be no surprise.

A Masai Mara safari will ensure visitors have incredible game viewing all year round. Every day, we went out into the park and saw something incredible. I was amazed watching hyena pups sniff our car tires, elephants rub against our tent poles at night, and a pride of lions kill and devour a zebra. Despite being one of Africa’s most popular spots to go on safari, the reserve blew us away.

February marks the height of the summer in Kenya, with high temperatures hovering around 30°C. This means it’s a great time to spot wildlife while on safari as the animals congregate toward watering holes. The landscape is still stunning, with green effects lasting from the previous month’s rains. Because of the nice weather, you may see several other tourists on safari in the Masai Mara or enjoy the coastal breeze on Diani Beach.

Costa Rica

Costa Rica Packing List
Costa Rica is easily one of the best places to visit in February.

Costa Rica is also a green powerhouse, one of the most amazing natural destinations in the world. It was the first country to go a full year on 100% renewable energy and still operate at around 99%. The country has prioritized preserving its natural habitats, with large swaths of protected wilderness zones or national parks. As home to some of the world’s lungs with rainforest

With cheap and direct flights from the US, visitors can take in many wildlife, stunning coastlines, and pristine rainforests. It’s little wonder why Costa Rica has become a hot travel destination in the last decade. Getting into the “Pura Vida” lifestyle is easy, thanks to the gorgeous beaches, friendly locals, and stunning natural landscapes.

You can expect days with no rain in February as it’s still the dry season. Temperatures can reach 28°C on average. Winds tend to get stronger in February, so windsurfing fans should make a beeline to Lake Arenal – a windsurfer’s paradise.


Saalbach, Austria

Saalbach, Austria

The Alps know how to deliver a ski vacation, with phenomenal lift infrastructure, apres-ski bars, on-mountain restaurants, and world-class passes. It’s a wildly different vacation than what’s on offer in North America. With a wide selection of ski resorts across the Alps that vary greatly in size and offerings, it’s tough to go wrong. However, you can’t go wrong with a destination like Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn.

Ski Circus Saalbach

The full name is a mouthful, but it’s often referred to by its nickname, “Skicircus.” With temperatures hovering around freezing and state-of-the-art snow maintenance equipment, you can bet that the slope conditions are pristine in February! With 270 km of well-groomed slopes and 70 lifts connecting its charming villages, you’ll never run out of runs to ski or snowboard.

The well-groomed runs will inspire confidence for most beginners, intermediates, and advanced skiers/riders. However, even experts will love the dizzying freeride terrain from the top of its lifts. The Freeride World Tour even makes a stop at Fieberbrunn in March.


Maldives

Soaking up the sun in the Maldives

The series of coral atolls spread across the Indian Ocean is an enticing getaway with white sand beaches, turquoise water, and tropical weather. The water here is home to abundant marine life so diverse that snorkelers can rejoice in close encounters with rays, sharks, whales, and a dizzying number of fishes.

To make it even better, some of the world’s most luxurious resorts sit on top of these atolls with indulgent water villas and beach bungalows. February is smack dab between monsoon seasons in the Maldives so that you can expect warm weather and sunny days. Be warned, it’s also the high season as Europeans flock to escape the cold! Hotels and resorts in the Maldives can go for high prices, so it’s a great time to use those credit card points and book ahead.


Antarctica

February means summer in Antarctica!

A trip to Antarctica is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that you’ll never forget. Few people venture to the southernmost continent because it is cold and hard to access. Fortunately, there are guided excursions available, and choosing to go in February is a safe bet for the weather as the temperatures are warm!  

You may be saying that 34°F is not very warm, but by Antarctic standards, that’s about as warm as it’ll ever get. Remember, this is summertime in the southern hemisphere, and besides, these temperatures are tolerable as long as you bundle up before heading out to see the adorable baby penguins.

February is prime time to see whales and seals and explore terrain usually ice-covered in the much colder months. Did I mention the sun shines up to 18 hours a day this time of year? Hello, gorgeous sunrises and late sunsets!


Cotswolds, United Kingdom

Cotswolds, United Kingdom

British winters are known for being quite dreary, but there’s a place in the southwest of England that isn’t quite as dreary as the rest of the country is in the middle of February, and that’s the Cotswolds. With an average daytime temperature of only 45°F, the Cotswolds have no warm weather escape. However, it’s they are a destination heavy on charisma. It’s a spot that politely requests you sit down with a good cuppa and book by the fire.

If you love the great outdoors, you’ll enjoy exploring the scenic countryside of hills, Iron Age ruins, and picturesque manors. This region is also known for its Michelin-starred eateries, antique shops, and cozy tea rooms, and the prices in February are much lower than during peak season. 


Utah

Salt Lake City Ski Resorts Snowbird Gondola

February is smack-dab in the middle of ski season, so we must include some great ski destinations on this list of the best places to travel in February. Ask any avid skier or snowboarder about their favorite ski resort, and you’ll probably hear Snowbird more than a few times. Salt Lake may be the city with the best ski in the world, which is not something you’d expect.

However, the frequent storms that blanket the Wasatch Mountains with snow through February ensure some excellent powder skiing conditions. There is no shortage of ski resorts in Utah, as visitors can choose from Snowbird, Brighton, Alta, Solitude, Park City, Deer Valley, and Snowbasin. Each one carries its own unique vibe, but we’re not fans of the ski elitism of Deer Valley and Alta since they operate on public lands and only allow skiers.


Ecuador

Quito - Cada Gangotena - San Roque Neighborhood

If you’re after an adventure and a culturally rich country, Ecuador has plenty to offer travelers. It’s primarily thanks to the country’s astounding variety of landscapes and biomes to explore. One of the most notable is the Galapagos Islands, a natural wonderland of volcanic islands that inspired Charles Darwin to develop the theory of evolution. The naturally rich island chain is ideal for an expedition cruise to visit sites rarely seen by humans.

The coastline has white sand beaches and some fantastic surf spots. Ecuador’s mainland, draped in lush greenery, hosts vibrant festivals like the Carnival of Guaranda, where the streets erupt in music, dance, and colorful parades. February marks the blooming season of vibrant orchids in the cloud forests, creating a mesmerizing spectacle for nature enthusiasts.


Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka Bucket List

Head to the vibrant island nation of Sri Lanka for a heavy dose of culture, food, beaches, jungles, and history. February is a beautiful month to visit Sri Lanka as it falls between its two rainy seasons and experiences warm temperatures. Sri Lanka is well known for its hospitable people, tasty food, and unique landscapes.

A very popular time to go to Sri Lanka, February sees some pretty fantastic weather. With nine hours of sunshine daily, it’s the peak season for visitors. Humidity levels, however, begin to soar towards the end of the month as temperatures hit 30°C across the island.

Another great month for hitting the beach. The sea is blissful at 29°C. Kite surfing is good at this time of year, particularly on the northwest beaches of Kalpitiya. Want to escape the heat? Kandy is still pretty cool by comparison. Sri Lanka is a great destination to combine with the Maldives; they’re a short flight apart.


Oman

Best Places to Visit in February  - Oman
Hiking in Oman / Best Places to Visit in February

Oman is another extraordinary country to check out if you want to escape the cold. The Middle Eastern country on the tip of the Arabian Peninsula enchants visitors with incredible landscapes, culture, and food. Culture permeates Oman, and it remains authentic despite being surrounded by the grandiose dreams of its neighbors. Muscat is an enticing city with few skyscrapers, old markets, forts, and traditional homes.

The nation has embraced its rich heritage of frankincense and trade with a wealth of natural and historical sights to be seen. Resulting in a country that’s enchanting to travel through with plenty of hidden pockets left to explore. To make things better, the country has excellent infrastructure for tourists with reliable roads, plenty of hotels, tour operators, dive shops, and activities. February is a fantastic time to visit Oman, but if you want to learn more, read about the best time to visit Oman.


St. Lucia

Jade Mountain, Saint Lucia
At Jade Mountain in Saint Lucia

There’s hardly a better time to head to the Caribbean than February. There’s no shortage of beautiful islands in the Caribbean, yet the St Lucia stand out. The towering Pitons are emblematic of the island and have appeared in various films and television shows, including Pirates of the Caribbean. Wild jungle blankets the island’s unique landscapes, once formed by volcanic eruptions.

It’s not just the landscapes and gorgeous blue waters rich in marine life that attract visitors. St Lucia’s former plantations produce some of the world’s best tropical fruit, chocolate, and coffee. We even made our own chocolate bar on our trip! You’ll be hard-pressed to find a more appealing island in the world.

Several resorts in St Lucia are jewels in the Caribbean, but it’s hard to find one more unique than Jade Mountain, where you’ll get neverending views of The Pitons. It may be the most iconic resort in the Caribbean, attracting many celebrities and British Royalty.

Jade Mountain is one of the most luxurious places we've ever stayed! Check rates here.

Hokkaido, Japan

Sapporo Snow Festival
The Sapporo Snow Festival is impressive

Hokkaido, Japan’s northernmost island, receives polar storms that blow over from nearby Siberia. You will not be working on your sun tan here, but it does make for sublime ski conditions in February. The island is renowned for its legendary dry snow or powder, making it one of the best regions in the world for snowboarding and skiing.

Many of the island’s resorts set records for the most snow in a season despite a shorter season than their North American and European counterparts. If you are after the island’s famous powder for skiing, the best time to visit Hokkaido is between December and March. February is high season at some resorts, but you likely won’t be too bothered unless you’re at the famous Niseko United Ski Resort. Excellent resorts to visit include Rusutsu, Furano, and Kiroro.

Any trip to Hokkaido is not complete without a visit to the fascinating city of Sapporo for some delectable food. The city hosts the annual Sapporo Snow Festival, in which ice and sculptors form huge public displays in the city’s central park. A typical winter day in February involves plenty of snow, a bowl of hot ramen, and soaking in one of the many Japanese bathhouses or onsens. Any avid skier or snowboarder should add this trip to their bucket list.


Kauai, Hawaii

Best Places to Visit in February

Of course, it’s Hawaii, so it’s always amazing. You’re bound to have a good time, whether it be Oahu, Big Island, Maui, Lānaʻi, or the other islands. The weather patterns are similar throughout the year, and one of the best times to visit is February.

We’ve been fortunate enough to visit the four main islands for tourism, and our favorite Hawaiian island is Kauai. There are so many things to do in Kauai, including many free nature activities and beautiful hikes, that it will be hard to get bored. Kauai is known for being one of the prettiest Hawaiian islands and for the most laid-back vibe of the four main islands.

Kauai is perfect for those who want to step into nature, stretch their legs on a few hiking trails, and still hit the beach. February may be the high season, but it’s due to the tremendous weather you’re guaranteed. Get ready to plan your trip to Hawaii!


Venice, Italy

Things to do in Venice - Grand Canal

A simple Google search of “Venice crowds” yields photos of the many tourists that flock to Venice every summer. Having the city to yourself is one of the many advantages of traveling during the off-season. Book a trip there in February and hit it right with reasonable prices and without the crowds (if booked outside of Carnival).

Venice Carnival / Best Places to Visit in February

We always manage to visit Venice in the winter, and because of this, we’ve never dealt with any of the negatives that people often complain about with Venice. The Grand Canal is a world wonder, with centuries of architecture, grand buildings, and history spilling into the buzzing thoroughfare.

Visit large cathedrals, museums, and magnificent squares before dipping into charming, narrow backstreets with hidden churches, bars, and churches. Also, during February? The Venice Carnival is a festival world famous for its elaborate masks! Of course, no trip to Venice is complete without a canal-side spritz and cicchetti. Our favorite hotel is the Gritti Palace, but that’s partly due to it being a Marriott-managed property to which we carry status.

Is Venice Worth Visiting? 10 Things You Should Know 

Argentina

The Cathedral In Buenos Aires

Argentina is the perfect summer escape in February. Buenos Aires remains an enticing city despite the country’s current economic woes. The city famed for the tango celebrates that heritage during the month with the Buenos Aires Tango Festival. Outside of the city, the weather is perfect for exploring Patagonia’s stunning landscapes, from azure lakes to majestic peaks. However, it’s still Patagonia, so don’t expect sunshine and warm beach weather.

The country’s natural wonders do not stop within Patagonia, as there is no shortage of natural wonders. Visitors can witness the thundering Iguazu Falls or the serene beauty of the Lake District. Coastal towns like Puerto Madryn showcase diverse wildlife, while the Pampas region immerses visitors in gaucho culture. It’s a time when Argentina flourishes, inviting travelers to savor its beauty, cuisine, and warm hospitality.

Mendoza is the gateway to the country’s wine country, and you’ll have plenty of opportunities to sample renowned Argentine wines. If you’re there in late February, check out the Vendimia Festival, which celebrates the grape harvest. Argentina has long inspired adventurers, and that still remains the same.


New Orleans

Best Places to Visit in February - New Orleans

Head to the Big Easy for a heavy serving of soul. Even with its crumbling old buildings and gritty pubs, there’s an air of romance surrounding this epic American city. Of course, February in New Orleans hardly needs any introduction as it’s the liveliest and craziest month to visit because of the famous Mardi Gras.

Enjoy comfortable temperatures of around 66°F as you participate in the festivities by night and explore the city’s wonders by day. Indulge in Creole cuisine and visit top attractions such as Jackson Square, the French Quarter, The National WWII Museum, St. Louis Cathedral, Mardi Gras World, Audubon Zoo, and Preservation Hall.


Cartagena, Colombia

Cartagena, Colombia

Cartagena, Colombia, is one of the best places to travel in February for a vibrant mix of cultures, world-class attractions, and fantastic weather with average temperatures of 88°F and dry conditions. Admire Colonial buildings, sip on rum cocktails, dine on delicious traditional dishes, dance the night away in top nightclubs, soak up the sun on stunning sandy beaches, and wander city streets filled with colorful murals. 

When it comes to top attractions to visit, check out Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas, Monumento Torre del Reloj, Convent of Santa Cruz de la Popa, Plaza de la Trinidad, and the Palace of the Inquisition Cartagena Historical Museum.


Ibiza, Spain

Ibiza, Spain
Ibiza is a pretty quiet place in February.

When most people think of Ibiza, they think of a non-stop party. While it’s true that the island has a reputation for being a wild nightspot, in the summer, there’s more to this island than all-night clubs and beach bashes. This is especially true in February when the crowds die, and temperatures plunge to a comfortable 59°F. 

February is also the best time to get good deals at restaurants and bars, especially on Thursdays when many businesses offer meals at half the price. When not indulging in cheap food and drink, visit historic shrines, explore the scenic countryside, and visit top attractions such as Dalt Vila, Puig des Molins, Cova de Can Marca, and Aquarium Cap Blanc.


Senegal

senegal

There are many reasons why Senegal, a country in Western Africa, is a great place to visit in February. For one, the weather is fantastic. With temperature averaging 79°F on most days, it’s not hot but certainly not cold either, and rain is a rarity!  

The country is known for its unique culture and lifestyle, delicious street food, vibrant arts scene, and beautiful beaches that see the best conditions for surfing in February. Venture into the pristine wilderness areas to see local wildlife or check out some of the country’s top attractions, including Gorée, Lake Retba, Village Des Arts, and Mosque of the Divinity.


Chile

It’s late summer in Chile in February, but it doesn’t get so hot that it’s unbearable. The average daily temperature in the country this time of year is 68°F, which means it’s warm enough in many areas to hit the beaches but cool enough to explore the many attractions and participate in some outdoor adventures. 

Chile is a land of contrast and beauty. Think majestic mountains, sprawling deserts, sparkling glacial lakes, and volcanoes. It is said that the night sky in the higher elevation areas of the country is the clearest anywhere in the world, so it’s no surprise that stargazing is a popular activity after the sun goes down. 

Santiago’s nightlife is second to none for those who prefer a lively nighttime outing! If you love wine, Chile is known for its red wines that can be enjoyed in many venues around the country. Some top attractions include Torres del Paine National Park, Valle de la Luna, Cape Horn, Mylodon Cave Natural Monument, Humberstone, and Santa Laura Saltpeter Works.


Kerala, India

Boat Going Down River In Kerala India

Regarding the most sought-after destinations to visit in India, Kerala is among the top choices, especially in February. The temperatures are still quite hot, rain is virtually non-existent, and the crowds have thinned out to reveal a peaceful, laid-back place where you can lie on the beach all day and dine slowly on local culinary delights in the fantastic restaurants. 

There are many fascinating attractions in Kerala, including the Dutch canals of Cochin, Eravikulam National Park, Sree Padmanabhaswamy Temple, Athirappilly Water Falls, Silent Valley National Park, Edakkal Caves and Mattancherry Palace.


Bahamas

One Of Famous Swimming Pigs Of The Bahamas

Of course, no list of places to travel in February would be complete without mentioning another place in the Caribbean! Who isn’t dreaming of a tropical getaway away from the cold and snow to escape to a place where the air is a perfect 77°F, the water is warm and crystal clear, and the rain is almost nonexistent? 

This is what it’s like in the Bahamas in February! One of the top reasons why February is the best time to visit is fewer crowds. The Christmas rush is over, and the rowdy spring breakers haven’t arrived yet, so you’ll have the white, sandy beaches and attractions almost all to yourself. 

Enjoy a laid-back atmosphere where time seems to stand still, wander historic streets, sip on a cocktail at sunset, and visit top attractions such as Atlantis Bahamas Hotel and Casino, Lucayan National Park, and Garden of the Groves


Bahia, Brazil

Brazil Carnival Woman

Late February is carnival time in Brazil, but with temperatures hovering around 88°F, any time of the month is perfect for a visit to the vibrant Bahia region of the country.  Wind down from a big night of partying with a relaxing day on a sandy beach where you can float in warm waters or immerse in the vibrant Afro-Brazilian culture and perhaps brush up on your samba skills. There are many attractions to explore, too. Check out Pelourinho Catedral Basílica, Casa do Rio Vermelho, Mucugê Waterfall, Barra Lighthouse and Morro de São Paulo.


Mexico’s Pacific Coast

Mexico’s Pacific Coast
Puerto Vallarta

When the weather was getting a little cold in Canada last February, we booked one-way tickets to Puerto Vallarta and had no regrets. February on the west coast of Mexico is generally pleasant and dry. Coastal areas like Puerto Vallarta, Sayulita, Acapulco, and Cabo San Lucas typically have daytime temperatures ranging from the mid-70s- to mid- to 80s F (24-29°C).

Evenings might be cooler, with temperatures in the 60s F (15-20°C), making it the ideal time to travel and escape the cold weather up north. Rainfall is relatively low during this time, so that you can expect plenty of sunshine and limited rain.

The other great news? Humidity levels are much lower than in the rainy season, making the overall climate more comfortable. The bad news? It’s high season throughout most of Mexico, so be prepared for high prices and book your accommodation in advance!
