Winter is not too far off and considering the fact that most people tend to have a good week or two off and spend time away from work and on holiday trips, maybe a trip to some of the most beautiful and captivating winter destinations of Europe is not a bad idea at all. While Europe has wide variety of winter holiday spots, here are a few that are exclusive, exceptional and simply inimitable.
Northern Lights at Ice Hotel, Sweden
How about spending a few nights at the world’s largest hotel made out of ice and snow alone? Constructed fresh each winter and set in the vast Swedish Lapland, the Ice Hotel is the largest of its kind on the planet and the first to kick off the idea. You can sleep cozily wrapped up in rooms that are -5 degrees Celsius and enjoy the hot local cuisine. Of course, the glimpse of breathtaking aurora borealis (Northern Lights) dancing in the sky will leave you with magical memories that will last a lifetime.
Skiing & snow at Chamonix, France
Chamonix is a popular winter destination and for good reason too. It offers some of the world’s finest skiing grounds and if you are a diehard fan of snow-clad slopes, then a family holiday here can be loads of fun. Majestic Alps, Mount Blanc in the backdrop, picture perfect resorts and awesome cable car rides is what you get here.
Exploring Norwegian Fjords, Norway
While each of us has our own personal preferences for the perfect getaway, the Norwegian Fjords will figure in the list of one and all after a single visit. The fjords defy words when it comes to description and their beauty is simply untouched by modern day lifestyle. As if they have been left behind by time and lost in their own void of space, this is arguably the most romantic trip you can envision; postcard perfect images and secluded spots.
The Isle of Skye, Scotland
One of the top island destinations on the planet, the Isle of Skye in Scotland is renowned for scenic beauty, great accessibility and wildlife galore. One of the lesser known delights of Scotland globally, this is a wonderful holiday spot for those who prefer life at a relaxed pace.
Let us round the destinations off with a classic and an all-time hit. Venice still retains the charm that it is renowned for and lives up to its reputation of being the most romantic city on the planet. If you wish to visit, ensure that you are never alone!
