Winter holidays

Introduction

For many, a winter holiday is about adventure and excitement, with more and more people are taking advantage of the thrilling seasonal activities on offer throughout Scandinavia and the Nordics to enjoy a truly memorable, and snowy, 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 within the Arctic Circle offer a great chance of viewing the Northern Lights, which can be combined with a 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, you can take them to meet Santa in Swedish or Finnish Lapland. 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. Further afield, the wintry snowscapes of Canada and Russia are just as adventurous and guaranteed to provide opportunities for exploration and discovery.
