The past one and a half years were particularly tough on everybody on the planet. Confined in four walls of the home with a whole family with no way out for relief has been a tough journey. Although this time has been great for reviving relationships and getting back to your roots but it has definitely made everyone eligible for a vacation. Especially couples as being cramped up with family in a house does not give much privacy. The traveling restrictions are being uplifted now so, it is the perfect time for a romantic getaway for couples that are dying for some alone quality time. Fortunately, this vacation season is colliding with a most romantic time of the year that is winters. The Winter season has the most romantic and cozy vibe and is the best time to travel in most of the places in the world. As many parts of the world are in a festive and celebratory mood.
Candlelit feasts, fireside embraces, and nighttime stroll beneath street lamps while snow dusts your sleeves are all part of the romanticism of winter. You won’t find a better way to attract your significant other than with a spectacular trip to a winter wonderland. So grab your significant other and head to one of the following nine locations, where the Most Wonderful Time of the Year is even more breathtaking
FINLAND is where winter truly shines, whether you’re hoping to immerse yourself in Sami culture, bask in the eerie brilliance of the Northern Lights, or just seek a white Christmas in the birthplace of Santa Claus. The European arctic is home to one of the most romantic winter destinations on the planet. If you and your special someone want to see the northern lights, Finnish Lapland is the place to go. Snuggle in a glass igloo at Hotel Kakslauttanen while colors dance across the sky overhead, ensuring one of the most fascinating experiences in the world.
The breathtaking Eagle’s View Suite, perched high above the freezing woodlands of the Syöte National Park, is arguably the most stunning site to take in Finland’s snowy, unspoiled beauty. The crown gem of Hotel Iso-Syöte is spread over two-story and features a stunning design with a tree growing through the middle, as well as glass walls and a roof for breathtaking Northern Lights views. The suite is great for couples, with romantic features like a comfortable fireplace, a panoramic Jacuzzi, and a glass-enclosed circular bed viewing the sky.
The Arctic Snow Hotel & Glass Igloos, located on the banks of Lehtojärvi Lake outside of Rovaniemi, sets the tone for an unforgettable subzero trip. Accommodation ranges from elegant snow and ice chambers to cozy and attractive glass-domed igloos specifically constructed for viewing the Northern Lights (think motorized beds and an alarm that alerts you when the lights are visible). A magnificent snow sauna, an awe-inspiring ice restaurant and bar, and a myriad of exciting arctic activities round out the experience.
These trendy Glass Igloos, which are part of Santa’s Hotel Aurora in the lovely village resort of Luosto, offer visitors a one-of-a-kind sleeping experience. They cocoon visitors in authentic rustic luxury, with sheepskin rugs and throws, natural furnishings, and many regionally inspired accents, and are designed in eye-catching Scandi style. Glass ceilings and walls bring the outdoors in, providing visitors 360-degree views of the Arctic skies and the magnificent, ever-changing natural surroundings. As if that weren’t enough, all glass-roofed buildings have flat-screen TVs and luxurious restrooms.
Quebec, Canada, is without a doubt one of the most romantic places on the planet. Quebec City gets our selection for the most charming place in this French Canadian province; its Historic District is so historic that it’s a UNESCO World Heritage site. Wander down cobblestone streets past snow-covered centuries-old buildings, stores, and bistros. Check into the Fairmont Le Chateau Frontenac for a luxurious extravagance (or simply enjoy its views of the Saint Lawrence River over wine and cheese at 1608).
Montreal is a second Quebecois city that is ideal for winter romance. Relax with a spa day at Bota Bota, a repurposed ferryboat that floats atop the river. If your vision of a winter wonderland is more rural than urban, Banff National Park is the place to go. Try your toes at a triple Salchow atop Lake Louise, or buckle in for unmatched airborne views on a heli-snowshoe tour. Relax with a couple’s massage or a bath in Banff Hot Springs after a day of adventure – an experience that is unquestionably romantic no matter where you are in the globe.
It’s difficult to imagine a more magnificent location than the Amalfi Coast in Italy. Despite the low winter temperatures in the mid-50s, the picturesque seashore in Italy’s Campania region is surrounded by winding roads and towering cliffs, offering the perfect backdrop for romance. Positano, noted for its vividly colored architecture, is a must-see destination in the region. If you’re seeking for a more budget-friendly option, consider staying in Amalfi or Praiano.
During the winter, the magnificent city of Venice is a wonderful destination to visit. During the winter, the sights and sites are calmer, and the air is cleaner than during the summer when pollution and people can distract from the scenery. Venice has something for everyone, from gondola rides to stunning baroque architecture and delectable food and wine. At the very least, sit back with a coffee in St Mark’s Square and watch the world go by in Italian style.
Turin, the northern city that serves as a gateway to the Alps, should be your first stop. Many skiers visit the city before heading to the slopes for their ski excursion. Turin, on the other hand, is a paradise unto itself. The annual Luci d’Artista, an event that celebrates art via light, is a major feature, with the city illuminated up in a variety of unique and creative ways. If you enjoy food, Turin is the place to visit because it is home to the original ‘Early’ store, which features the best Italian produce.
Sandals South Coast in Jamaica offers an all-inclusive luxury experience that allows guests to relax and unwind.

Overwater bungalows with outdoor bathrooms and glass floors are among the opulent suites available. Rates vary based on the season, however the Sandals South Coast website frequently has special offers and packages. Summer romance is well and dandy, but when it’s freezing outside, a romantic journey to warmer climates is even more appealing. Jamaica is one of our favorite places to visit with a special someone, and these nine resorts make finding romance in paradise a breeze.
The Hibiscus Lodge Hotel is off the main road from the closed-off tourist resorts, yet rubbing elbows with locals for a more real trip to the Caribbean island is a pleasant travel experience. Check out the Jamaica Inn if you’re looking for something a little more expensive with all the comforts of home. Take a stroll to the Almond Tree Restaurant in the Hibiscus Lodge at sunset for amazing views of the ocean. The lobster feast is delicious, and their cocktails are fantastic.
The Maldives is made up of 26 natural tiny islands that are encircled by a beautiful turquoise lagoon. This winter holiday resort is quite pricy to visit due to its remote position in the Indian Ocean. Due to its solitude, crystal blue waters, and breathtaking sunrises and sunsets, the romantic environment is unrivaled. Book an overwater house at one of the several luxury resorts that call this archipelago home if you’re wanting to splurge.
The Maldives, located in the Indian Ocean, is home to over 1,000 coral islands spread across 26 atolls, as well as numerous luxury resorts that offer not only excellent accommodations and magnificent vistas, but also unique activities and attractions. The award-winning five-star Como Maalifushi’s location is one of its most appealing features. It is the Maldives’ most remote resort, and as the only resort located in the turquoise waters of the southerly Thaa Atoll, guests genuinely enjoy the pleasure of avoiding daily life. Guests are drawn to this resort’s calm and tranquility, as well as its luxury over-water villas, which are considered some of the best in a highly competitive market.
Zurich transforms into a winter paradise, encapsulating the spirit of the holidays through Swiss traditions. It’s one of the most gorgeous winter getaways, and it’s a great trip for couples to spend quality time together. Zurich is one of Switzerland’s most beautiful cities. In the winter, the medieval old town, or Altstadt, is extremely lovely. Streets, stores, and tourist attractions are all decked up with festive lights. Zurich’s Christmas markets are among the best in Europe. Stop by the largest market, which is located at the major train station, before continuing on to other parts of Switzerland. The gigantic Swarovski Christmas tree, covered with dazzling lights, is the show-stopper.
The picturesque village of Zermatt appears like something out of a storybook. Zermatt will warm your heart with its backdrop of the Matterhorn, the beautiful Alps peak, and quaint alleyways and cafes.
The Jungfrauregion is located in Switzerland’s Bernese Oberland area. It is famous for the Jungfraujoch, one of Europe’s most beautiful summits. The ‘Top of Europe,’ the continent’s highest railway station, is even more popular, drawing visitors to the region.
This small country is still unknown around the world. Some consider it to be the most beautiful country on the planet. Those who have heard of Croatia are unlikely to find it on a map. Croatia, on the other hand, is rich in magnificent spots. The amazing sunsets in Rovinj will make you fall in love, the picturesque Vara din is the perfect place to taste the greatest coffee, and the impressive cultural legacy in Trogir will leave you breathless.
While the port city of Dubrovnik, Croatia, is bustling with visitors throughout the summer, the winter months leave this lovely city eerily empty, despite the fact that temperatures remain in the mid-fifties. Relaxing strolls through Old Town’s limestone alleyways, romantic dinners along the seaside promenade, and “Game of Thrones” tours, if you’re interested, are all available in Dubrovnik.
Trogir’s old town has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Because it is a well-preserved Romanesque island town. Trogir, a little but very remarkable town, is suitable for endless walks and daydreaming, and is rich in cultural and historical value. It is an essential ‘taste’ for all senses, with its lush flora, sea aroma, and outstanding Mediterranean cuisine.
Croatia’s capital is situated on the banks of the Sava River, at the foot of the Medvednica mountain range. Zagreb is well-known for its numerous parks and picturesque streets, which draw visitors from all over the world.
The white and pastel-colored buildings that line the sides of Santorini’s cliffs provide a lovely backdrop for romance and enjoyment. Boating, stunning ocean vistas, and superb Greek restaurants attract couples to this Greek island. Santorini’s winter temperatures may only reach the 50s and 60s, but you’ll have more of the island to yourself because the location sees fewer visitors at this time of year.
Santorini has a lot of reasons to make you fall in love… When you’re surrounded by sugar-cube perfection in villages like Oia, Fira, and Imerovigli, or in the traditional village of Pyrgos, you’re on the beaches with all those magnificent volcanic colors.
• COSTA RICA
The dry season runs from mid-November to mid-May, making it the ideal time to enjoy little rainfall and wonderful beach days in the midst of a volcano-studded terrain. Zip line through the rainforest or go horseback riding on a gorgeous track for a thrill. The Margaretville Resort is located in the Guanacaste district on the northwest Pacific coast. Try the Occidental Grand Papagayo, an adults-only all-inclusive in the Gulf of Papagayo, for a laid-back experience.
Costa Rica is the ideal romantic destination, with the Caribbean on one side, the Pacific on the other, and miles of protected rainforest in between.
