The 7 Most Beautiful Snowy Destinations In The World

02 March 2018

Amidst the chaos and disruption of icy roads and weather warnings is a magical sight that we rarely see in England, especially in the south. The white topped trees and crisp, untouched snow make our streets suddenly seem much less familiar and in contrast to the mayhem it causes there is something really quite charming and peaceful about the bitter-cold weather.

Unfortunately  (or fortunately depending on the way you feel about it)  the snow will soon be gone and the country will be back to its usual self. If you do love the sight of snow then there are a few places that you must add to your list for winter holidays…

Saariselka, Finland

Deep in the countryside of northern Finland is the peaceful village Saariselka, a true winter wonderland complete with reindeer, husky dogs and a very high chance of seeing the northern lights. Accommodation is magical too with charming log cabins and even an igloo village.

New York, USA

Cliché? Maybe, but winter is undoubtedly a beautiful time of year for New York and there is a huge range of things to do from enjoying one of the amazing winter carnivals or just admiring the breathtaking views in the city’s many parks.

Bled, Slovenia


Lake Bled is a very popular destination in the summer for tour groups and holiday makers, but when winter comes around it might seem like the town is hibernating as the snow falls and it becomes a peaceful place that is even more beautiful than it is in the summer. In the coldest points of winter the water often freezes over and you can walk, or even ice skate,across the lake.

Grise Fiord, Nunavut, Canada

Grise Fiord is a very small village, remotely situated at the top of Nunavut, the northernmost territory of Canada.The mountainous landscape is utterly stunning and there’s a good chance of spotting some unique wildlife such as seals, narwhals muskox, and sunbathing walruses! Due to it’s isolated location the community is very small but they are ever so welcoming and are said to always greet visitors with a smile.

Rothenburg ob der Tauber, Germany

Rothenburg is like something from a fairy tale, in fact it was actually the inspiration for Walt Disney’s Pinnochio and it’s not hard to see why. The quaint buildings and narrow alleyways are silenced in winter as the snow falls and the town becomes even more magical.

Yellowstone, USA


Yellowstone National Park is beautiful enough normally but when blanketed by the thick snow in Winter it seems almost enchanted, the vast landscape becomes free of the usual tourists leaving a peaceful wilderness with snow coated animals that are much easier to spot than in the summer time. From December to February most of the roads that lead to the park are closed and the only way of visiting is by snow-coach or snowmobile.

Amsterdam, Netherlands

The weather may feel cold, but a winter night in Amsterdam will make you  feel cosy and warm. When the heart of the city is lit up and covered in snow it  really is stunning, and the large nearby parks and lakes look incredibly pretty in winter. You can even ice skate on the canals if you’re lucky enough to see them freeze!
