A magical getaway awaits couples amidst the beautiful Lapland scenery in Finland. The Hotel Kakslauttanen and Igloo Village offers first-class wood cabins, glass Kota teepees, snow igloos and glass igloos. Guests will ride in a reindeer-driven sleigh across the snow to their humble abode for the night. For an eerily beautiful winter wonderland vacation spot completely surrounded by snow, couples can snuggle under their fur comforters and relax under their glass dome igloo while gazing at the stunning panoramic views of the Northern lights. Watching the aurora borealis lights turn the sky into glowing pinks, blues and greens is certainly a romantic trip, if not breathtaking!

Travelers yearning for a more intimate outing than the average bus tour can experience the beauty of Central Park in a unique and historical way. After bundling up in fur blankets, pairs will ride through the winding trails of the park admiring the trees, rolling green hills, famous movie spots and the unforgettable culture of New York.
