I have to say that going to the Winter Olympics has always been a kind of fantasy trip for me. I mean, the Summer Olympics are fun to watch on TV, and everything, but, I've always gravitated toward the Winter Olympics. I think short track speed skating is really exciting to watch. The luge and skeleton events look terrifying and thrilling at the same time. Figure skating? You bet. Skiing and snowboarding? Yep. I'd go to that.
Part of the thing that irks me about the televised coverage of the Olympics is that they always leave out so much of it. Say it's the women's figure skating competition. They'll televise the US competitors, and then the top three or four people's performances. You never get to see the athletes from the small countries that everyone knows aren't really medal contenders. I think that's stupid. I'd like to see what the figure skater from Uzbekistan can do!
Well, if you share that interest, maybe next year, you should go to the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea. They'll be held from February 9 to 25, 2018, and the tour operators who are putting together these packages are just now making them available. Planning a trip like this yourself would be really daunting, but we can hook you up with a custom luxury package to the Winter Games that could include special event day activities, as well as sightseeing in nearby Seoul! In fact, we've seen one 6-night Olympic Games package for PyeongChang that starts at only $6,895 per person! For a once-in-a-lifetime trip, that seems like a super bargain, to us.
One thing's for certain, though. There will be a lot of demand for these trips, so the sooner you start booking, the better off you'll be. Let us know how we can help!
