Eidsbugarden Hotel
Eidsbugarden, 2985 Tyinkrysset, Norway – website: www.eidsbugarden.net
Perhaps the simplest of our recommendations in this line up – but arguably the ultimate hideaway; this mountain lodge is exclusively accessible by snow trac (by pre-arranged appointment only) offering nothing but an open snow covered mountain landscape. The kitchen offers simple yet hearty meals, you can hang out in front of the fireplace or if you’re feeling adventurous… you can channel your inner explorer and go on a guided mountain expedition. Peacefulness like never experienced before – a moon like landscape with the spectacular Northern Lights lighting up the sky.

These are three very different but all truly spectacular options. Let us know if you have any ultimate hideaway hotels to recommend. Or, if you decide to go (or have been to) any of these places – please share your experience.

As half the pleasure with a holiday is looking forward to it we thought we’d give you a head start! Happy holiday planning! x
