Winter holidays

The world's best cold-weather adventures

Introduction

For many, a winter holiday is about adventure and excitement, with more and more people taking advantage of the thrilling seasonal activities on offer throughout Scandinavia and the Nordics to enjoy a truly memorable, and snow-bound adventure. After all, where else can you stay at a hotel built anew every year from blocks of freshly cut ice, soak in a hot tub beneath the Aurora Borealis or access the Arctic wilderness?

All winter destinations above the Arctic Circle offer a great chance of viewing the Northern Lights, an experience which can be combined with a whole range of ‘winter safaris’ by snowmobile, husky or reindeer sled. Depending on where you’re travelling, you can also enjoy king crab fishing, ice fishing, snowshoeing and much more besides.

If you’ve got school-age kids, why not make their dreams come true with a trip to meet Santa in in his Lapland home. Or, if they’ve flown the nest, where better to celebrate New Year’s Eve than the elegant architecture, great nightlife and wintry surrounds of Reykjavik, Copenhagen or Helsinki.
