Whenever you think of a winter holiday, skiing atop a snowy mountain is usually the image that springs to mind. However, for those of you who don’t see the appeal of the French Alps or are simply looking for an alternate place to enjoy your winter holiday, why not take a look at Lapland or Iceland as a new holiday spot.
Both destinations offer a whole host of winter activities to keep you busy and allow you to enjoy experiences to last a lifetime. As winter is now drawing to a close and we can finally start to enjoy the warmer weather, why not think of these two destinations for your next winter break and give yourself something to look forward to.
Lapland is a region that covers a large area of northern Sweden, Finland, Norway and a part of Russia’s Kola Peninsula. Past studies have shown that the air in the Northern part of Lapland is the cleanest in Europe. Lapland is not only known for its beautiful scenery and the Northern lights but also for the many activities it has to offer. Husky sledding, sleigh rides, ice fishing and snowmobile safaris are just a few of the many things you can experience in Lapland.
Iceland is an incredible destination in the North Atlantic Ocean. In less than 3 hours on a direct flight, you get exposed to a location that is so different from your normal day-to-day scenery; this is an experience you cannot miss!
