A Refreshing Winter Experience

For those who travel to New Orleans and those who live in New Orleans alike, there are an endless amount of attractions that make the big easy the place to be. One of the best things about Southern Louisiana and New Orleans is its temperate climate, where temperatures stay relatively warm, even during the winter months. This warm weather makes winter the perfect time to go on a swamp tour with Airboat Adventures right outside of New Orleans in Lafitte. Although swamp tours through Airboat Adventures are a great experience at any time of the year, they are especially popular in the winter because they provide a nice outside experience, and the weather in Southern Louisiana during the winter never gets too cold. A winter swamp tour in New Orleans is a great way to enjoy the outdoors!

What Makes A Swamp Tour So Great?

By choosing to go on a swamp tour in Lafitte, visitors have an opportunity to go out in nature and see some of the most natural beauty than Louisiana has to offer. Contrary to some belief, the winter offers swamp tour visitors one of the best experiences of the whole year. During the winter the grass is only a few inches high compared to the tall grass of the summer months allowing for greater visibility of the animals around. For those most excited about seeing land animals, deer and the Louisiana famous nutria can be found most easily during the winter months. Furthermore, migratory birds like the bald eagle and waterfowl have come South to enjoy the warm air, just like visitors. Another added bonus that makes these Airboat Adventure tours so great is that mosquitoes are not a problem at any time of the year. Although less frequent during the summer months, alligators continue to make appearances during the winter when they perch on the logs to enjoy the pleasant sunshine to warm them up from the chilly water.
