For snowbirds, cruise the Yellowstone backcountry on a snowmobile or let a team of huskies do the running across Alaskan tundra. Sunseekers should check out the sea kayaking in MexicoÂ’s Sea of Cortez or make tracks to JamaicaÂ’s Mockingbird Hill, where remote trails and pristine lagoons are only a step away. One way or another, your day will be topped out in front of a roaring log fire or tropical sunset. The choice is yours.
