Hygge-the art of living cosily
The Danish concept of living well combines cosiness with homeliness. A hyggelig moment means to relax by the fireplace cupping your hands around a mug of a steaming hot chocolate. Wrapped up in a woolen blanket you listen to the crackling fire, you feel content and at home.
Though hygge stems from Denmark, it has taken the Nordic countries by storm. In cosy cabins, remote mountain lodges are the perfect place to snuggle up in hygge style. Please get in touch if you are looking for a holiday with a hygge focus.
Friluftsliv-connecting with nature
The Norwegian word loosely translating into ‘the love of being outside’ drives Scandinavians outside at all times of the year. It is about connecting with nature, whilst being active outside. The idea to gently connect, rather than to conquer, can take many shapes and sizes. In winter, this could be going ice fishing, snowshoeing or dog sledding in the peaceful wilderness. To make the most of this immersive experience it is best to take it slowly and to simply marvel the beauty of the snowy landscapes adorned by a pastel-coloured sky as a backdrop. In an abundance of wilderness cabins, resorts and lodges, Friluftsliv-inspired activities are on offer.
