Winter holidays

Introduction

A winter holiday doesn’t have to be about skiing; more and more people are taking advantage of the exciting winter activities on offer in destinations such as Iceland and Scandinavia to enjoy a snowy adventure; 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 an exciting range of ‘winter safaris’ by snowmobile, husky or reindeer sled. Depending on where you’re travelling, you can also enjoy king crab fishing, ice rally driving, ice fishing and much more.

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.
