Create Your Best Holiday Memories in These 6 Exciting Winter Destinations
01 Nov 2018PLACESBY SweetEscape

Nothing really feels close to how the kids inside of us go crazily excited when the temperature begins to drop — snow will be falling anytime soon! Especially if you live in a country where there are only two seasons, it becomes a part of your bucket lists to visit a country where the roofs get covered with blankets of ice and everything else turns to white.

And because the holiday season has become one of the most convenient time to travel, how about taking that winter wonderland holiday dream to reality? Here are six exciting winter destinations that you may visit for the holidays:

1. Lucerne, Switzerland

Similar to what you see in postcards is Lucerne's impressive mountainous landscape. This place has the best view of Lake Lucerne and a really stunning scenery of the Alps, especially if you'll be taking the Glacier Express from Zermatt to St. Moritz. Don't forget to try the authentic Swiss cheese fondue before you leave!

2. Vienna, Austria

This destination would warm your heart even when it's cold outside. In Vienna, you could go for walks at its city center and go on a little shopping trip in stalls selling food, gluhwein and handicrafts — they are known to have the best Christmas markets in Europe. You may also go ice skating in the gardens of the Wilhelminenberg Palace or go on a weekend ski trip to Hohe-Wand-Wiese.

3. Reykjavik, Iceland

Everyone dreams of taking a sight of the Northern Lights in person, and you could do that in Reykjavik this holiday season. If you are down for adventures, you could also try downhill skiing, snowboarding and cross-country skiing here. On the 23rd of December, take part in the Icelandic tradition of eating fermented skate and potatoes.

4. Helsinki, Finland

This holiday season, how about a visit to the country where Santa Claus is said to traditionally originate? Feel all Christmasy in Helsinki, also known as the Christmas city, where you could find snow-covered villages, just like in the movies. Local parades happen during the month of December, so don't forget to join the locals and tourists in spreading the holiday vibes.

5. Quebec, Canada

Experience a real winter wonderland in Quebec, where a hotel room made entirely of ice could be found. Take those Instagram-worthy photos at the Old Quebec Christmas village, unleash the inner kid in you at Valcartier Vacation Village, North America's largest winter playground or join their winter celebration as you watch the ice canoe race across the St. Lawrence River!

6. Tromso, Norway

Experience your first snowfall in Tromso, a city located above the Arctic Circle. Aside from the usual snow activities, you could also experience a close encounter with reindeers and dog sledding with the Alaskan huskies. You could also catch the Northern Lights here in Tromso, especially from September to March.

Get your phones ready because in these 6 locations, you'll never run out of beautiful sceneries to capture. Or better yet, take SweetEscape with you on your holiday adventure so we could save those precious moments for you to keep and remember forever.

The best way to experience the wonders of the canals of Amsterdam is by hopping on a boat and taking a boat tour. The beautiful and unique canal houses along the canals makes great setting for your family photo session. Your kids can also learn about the Netherlands' famous canals system from the guides!

2. Take A Bike (with Bakfiets) to Vondelpark

by Dennis + Dewi for SweetEscape in Amsterdam

A very Dutch way to get around Amsterdam is on bakfiets, a large bucket attached to the front of a bike, which your kids will definitely love! Let your kids to sit safely inside the bakfiets and cycle through Amsterdam's numerous bike-lanes to many interesting spots in and around the city, including Vondelpark, the largest park of the city with lots to offer for kids such as The Melkhuis, Kinderkookcafe (where children can cook little dishes while you enjoy a cup of coffee), and a lovely paddling pool. Check out these other great spots for cycling too!

3. Visit Museums

by Danny for SweetEscape in Amsterdam

The Netherlands produces some famous painters throughout history, and you can start to spark some creativity in your kids by taking them to some of these famous museum. The Van Gogh Museum is pleasantly light and modern, with paintings that are very colourful and accessible to children. The 17th Century Rembrandt House is also very interesting, giving us a glimpse of how Rembrandt (and other well-to-do Amsterdam inhabitants) lived in the ‘Golden Age’. Start nurturing the future artist in them!

4. Eating Pancakes at Nine Streets

by Roos for SweetEscape in Amsterdam

The Nine Streets is another interesting place to visit. These nine little streets are filled with small and unique shops, ranging from fashion boutiques, to art stores, and even a toothbrush shop! One of the best places to take your kids to in the Nine Streets is Pancakes Amsterdam Negen Straatjes, a pancake shop that offers a world-wide variety of pancakes, including Dutch's famous pannekoek!

5. King's Day!

by Danny for SweetEscape in Amsterdam

Unique to Spring, The King's Day is a festival to celebrate the birthday King Willem-Alexander, the current ruling monarch, and is held every April 27th. Cycle past the spectacle with your kids on the Bakfiets (see number 2!) and let them take it the explosion of bright orange colours throughout the city, or take part in a plethora of activities and fun games in the many carnivals and pop-up markets around Amsterdam and many other cities!
