Escape El Niño with Outside GO


Escape El Niño with GO


Join GO on a handpicked trip to the Southern Hemisphere this winter.


Experts are predicting this winter to be a bad one. Colder, longer, harsher. "What causes an El Niño?" you might ask. Top meteorologists say the surface temperature of the Pacific Ocean is higher than it's been since 1948, and that anomaly means this El Niño means business. That translates to more snow in the mountains for the places we call home, like New Mexico and Colorado, and suggests we won't be seeing spring for a long, long time.

While most of us at the Outside office rejoice over white stuff in the forecast, let's face it, there's not as much ski traffic below the equator. Join GO on any one of our handpicked trips in the Southern Hemisphere. Picture yourself learning to surf in the salty Pacific off the coast of Nicaragua, hiking along ridges of sweeping sand dunes in Namibia, or fly-fishing peaceful headwaters in Argentina. As always, the choice is yours. We don't think you can make a bad one with the trips below.




Africa is the ultimate destination for anyone looking to escape the winter blues at home. Everything here, from the landscape to the wildlife, engages a palate of rich browns, lush greens, and sumptuous golds. This color scheme is indicative not only of the excellent weather you can expect while on safari, but of an otherworldly journey you'll be dreaming about for winters to come.
