Even though it’s summer, there are going to be a lot of fun places to travel towards winter. If you’re currently still isolating, then maybe the hope for a winter holiday will keep you sane! The beauty of the outdoors during winter is just incredible. There are countless spots to indulge in bathing in bubbling Jacuzzis, snow-sports, and seeing the crisp winter take beautiful shape on the mountains and hills, creating glorious snow capped scenery. All very Instagram worthy, and definitely worth the travel to; and there is no reason to use winter as an excuse to hibernate. Although spring is appearing slowly but surely, here are some of the best destinations to take a snow trip, with epic scenery and plenty of luxury resorts to choose from.
Iceland is constantly raved about by travel lovers. It’s perfect volcanic backdrops with a plethora of spots to take photos and lots to explore. It is not just amazing for its scenery but it also has many ski resorts that you may not have known existed, which makes it a brilliant choice for both sightseeing, relaxing and sports. With mile after mile of untouched volcanic land and views that will take your breath away, you can check into the famous Blue Lagoon spa which is a big hit with its beautiful blue waters, filled with volcanic mud that is good for your skin and wellbeing. The resorts of and Skalafell are the main resorts. Flights are relatively regular to Iceland, but usually fly from the main airports, you may not easily find flights from smaller airports. Reykjavik is also full of beautiful colourful buildings, quaint boutique hotels and little shops, and is still within driving distance of all the volcanoes.
Canada is renowned for its crisp cold weather but it is also undoubtedly a place that has been on my list for quite some time. It’s culture and its history is incredible, as well as all the little towns that look delightful. Three of Canada’s top places are, Quebec, Alberta and Vancouver. Of course there would be maple syrup on tap (at least I hope) and copious amounts of luxury resorts, many of them nestled in the beautiful hillside. Visit Old Quebec, with a stunning castle and stay at the incredible Chateau Frontenac. Canada has plenty of great big cities that have lots of great airbnbs too. Be sure to check them out; you may also want to look into noise monitoring for airbnb. This can be helpful to track and monitor movement and sound to stay safe and happy.
Colorado is undoubtedly the heart of America, and during the winter it becomes a magical wonderland. Colorado is brilliantly located with many other attractions and cities nearby such as Denver, and to the west, Salt Lake City and to the east, Kansas. Beaver Creek is one luxury area of the state that has a huge influx of tourists and it’s not to be missed if you happen to be looking for a beautiful winter break. The Park HyattBeaver Creek Resort and Spa is a beautiful 5 star hotel with an outdoor pool. For the ultimate in American luxury, then Aspen is the place to visit and it has a lot of places to shop which would definitely be a huge hit for me, shopping whilst you’re abroad is definitely one of the most exciting things to do!
