1. Hot Cocoa-Filled Ski Lodges
Skiing or snowboarding are a thrilling outdoor winter activity. And after a long day out in the cold and snow, few things sound as comforting as wrapping up in a warm blanket while nursing a mug of hot cocoa.
Many ski lodges have rocking fireplaces and mountain views, providing the perfect backdrop for a romantic evening. Evenings end with a mug of cocoa and a cozy sleep-in comfortable bed.
You’ll find plenty of great early season ski resorts in Europe, with many open well into April. Or head to Utah, Colorado or the Canadian Rockies for some North American ski vibes.
2. Hot Spring Baths
Not only do natural hot springs offer a unique experience, but they also provide a wealth of health benefits. Hot springs are known to improve circulation, reduce inflammation, relieve pain, and provide a sense of comfort and relaxation.
The temperatures of hot springs range from 94 to 100 degrees, and some even allow you to soak in the warmth while taking in a gorgeous view.
3. Long Weekend in a European City
Exploring a beautiful city can be just the thing to get you out of the winter doldrums. And with just a few days away, you can enjoy a full range of activities without feeling like you’re on trip planning for too long.
With fewer people and lower prices than in the summer months, hotels and restaurants are easier to book and afford, so you can stay in high-end accommodation, enjoy traditional dishes, and still have time for sightseeing and shopping for typical souvenirs.
If you’re trying to pick the best European city break, it is a tough call. But we love Barcelona, Porto, Krakow, Edinburgh and Venice (just for starters).
