Cosy cabins topped with a thick layer of snow with a roaring fire inside conjure up a romantic idol for two. And indeed Scandinavia and the Nordic countries are famed for their cosy, romantic lodgings and wild remote landscape. Here are our top romantic Scandinavian holidays and experiences to inspire you to romance in the Magnetic North.

3) The Aurora Cabin, Finland
Looking for a way to literally get away from it all? Then the Mobile Aurora Cabin may be the answer. Your cabin will be attached to a snow mobile and you’ll be whisked away to a solitary spot on the frozen lake Inari where a hot tub can be fired up just for the two of you. Spend the night on your own and perhaps you’ll see the dance of the Northern Lights in the sky.

5) Husky sledding, Norway, Finland, and Sweden
There’s no better way to bond with your beau than during a husky sledding tour. One of you will be the passenger and one of you will drive the sled and together you’ll lead your team of eager husky dogs through the wilderness. Our husky sled tours are popular romantic breaks and honeymoons and are anything from one hour through to eight days!

6) Glass Igloo Holiday, Finland
Star-gazing is a popular romantic pastime, and there’s nowhere better than from the comfort of your glass igloo. These spherical domes have a 360 degree view of the night sky where you may view dazzling starry nights or even the dance of the Aurora Borealis. Levi Glass Igloos are the most luxurious, but also popular are the igloos at Kakslauttanen Resort.

7) A million star view, Iceland
For a more quirky, yet equally romantic star-gazing experience, a trip to the South coast of Iceland comes with our warm recommendations. Relish an ‘only us and the universe moment’ as you snuggle up in a bubble-shaped glass dome to the view of the surrounding forest. Discover Iceland’s hidden gems including the Secret Lagoon and the splendid food and interior at Hotel Ranga.

9) Coastal Voyage on board Hurtigruten, Norway
Take to the seas, and enjoy a voyage along Norway’s stunning coastline. The fleet of Hurtigruten Express Ships has been sailing these ports for many decades and we think a night or two on board the ship as part of a tailor-made holiday is just perfect and romantic too. There’s plenty of space to enjoy time together as you watch the views pass you by, and little extras like fizz and chocolates in the room make for a very special romantic voyage before your arrival to port.

Join a thrilling high-quality dog-mushing experience you two will love to reminisce for a long time.
