You might think of summer as the traditional vacation time to go somewhere exotic, but winter is as good a time as any. Why not escape your dreary everyday for somewhere to either escape the cold from, or bask in a winter wonderland.
1. Levi, Finland
Levi is a fell in Finland that just happens to be the biggest ski resort in the country. Its peak is an elevation of 531 meters, and you can choose to stay in big glass igloos, which look up to the Northern Lights. Ensuite bathrooms, blinds and heated floors make this a luxury winter getaway.
2. Ko Kut, Thailand
Most tourists favor larger and more crowded islands in Thailand, but this is an intimate and authentic experience that is great for a sensual getaway for just the two of you. The colder it is for us, the more gorgeous and sunny it is in lush, greenery filled Thailand.
3. Soneva Jani, Maldives
We have limited times before the Maldives go underwater, and since it’s basically the stuff dreams are made of, we don’t know what you’re waiting for. Resorts like Soneva Jani have infinity pools and stargazing suites to make your picturesque island suite even more amazing.
4. Whistler, Canada
The more metropolitan cities in Canada are overrated. Book a breathtaking rustic log cabin Airbnb in the middle of the forest, or zip down mountains at fast speeds. Either way, this destination feels like you’ve been thrown in a snow globe in the best way possible.
5. Amalfi Coast, Italy
It’s hard to pick one destination in Italy, but this coast is a must-see. Steep cliffs and curving, postcard worthy roads line Italy’s Campania shoreline, making the perfect background for your sickening couple selfies. Try Positano, which is known for its vibrant, multihued architecture.
6. Sedona, Arizona
You may not think of Arizona as the ultimate getaway spot, but it’s warm and filled with natural beauty and spas, which are basically the only three things on our checklist. Sedona is a must-see with its rusty and snow-dusted landscape. Many spas have guided hikes, wine tastings and more.
7. Porto, Portugal
Portugal is on everyone’s bucket list, and Porto is a big reason why. It’s especially cheap in the winter The wine, the gorgeous Douro River, and the winding cobblestone streets are just the beginning of romance filled days in this city.
8. St. Moritz, Switzerland
St. Moritz may be famous as a ski destination, but the Alpine resort town is ideal for couples looking to sneak away. Try out some winter sports if you fancy, and relax by Soak in the mountain town’s mineral springs and finish off the day with an elegant high dining experience at one of the many establishments lining Lake St. Moritz.
9. Napa Valley, California
This famous wine destination and its relation to romance is pretty obvious, making Napa the perfect getaway for you and boo. With tons of Michelin starred restaurants that have even more impressive wine lists, this is where you can get some really decadent R&R with unforgettable sunsets.
10. Dubrovnik, Croatia
Croatia is one of the cheapest and most naturally breathtaking locations in the world, Dubrovnik is a city within it, located right off the Adriatic sea. Its historic city walls and waterfront promenade are worth. It’s even where King’s Landing in GoT was shot, but if fantasy isn’t your thing, there’s plenty of other things to do.
