Arctic honeymoons

Our verdict:

The snowy landscapes of the Arctic have an ethereal quality that lends itself to romance. Artisan Travel arranges wintery honeymoons in surreal and deeply romantic hideaways. Stay in a glass igloo and marvel at the Northern Lights above or chill out in a luxury tepee with private hot tub after a day's husky sledding or ice fishing.

Artisan Travel says

Winter honeymoons are simply magical – imagine snuggling up together in a hotel made entirely of ice and snow or in a cosy log cabin surrounded by dreamy snowscapes and peaceful woodland.

We provide unique, hand-crafted holidays which marry expertise and local knowledge to provide unforgettable year-round experiences for adults. Destinations include Scandinavia, Iceland, Greenland, Canada and Alaska.

We believe there is absolutely no substitute for local knowledge which is why we work with local partners to create experiences that allow you to really get beneath the skin of your chosen destination and see the very best of it, whether it’s for a minimoon or longer stay.

Here are some of our most popular winter honeymoon ideas.

For something really special, there’s a range of ice and snow hotels – for example, you can stay in a glass igloo marvelling at the Northern Lights while lying in a warm bed.

In Finnish Lapland, we offer a thrilling adventure honeymoon, staying in cosy cottages and a wilderness lodge and heading out on a snowmobile or husky safari. You can also try your hand at ice fishing, cross country skiing and snowshoeing.

We provide warm weather clothing for all our winter trips so you don’t need to worry about buying special gear.

If your honeymoon is in the summer months, check out our amazing stays at the unique Treehotel in Sweden and our year-round range of wildlife holidays in the Arctic Circle for example.

The Aurora Borealis is undoubtedly nature’s most spectacular light show – we offer a wide range of Northern Lights honeymoons in Iceland, Norway, Greenland, Finnish Lapland and Alaska.
