19th February 2018

Capturing the hearts of Prosecco lovers

“The weather outside is fearful” – you’ve heard this line sung by a great variety of singers all over the holiday season and it didn’t stop being true even today. For many, winter is too cold, too snowy, too gloomy, too cold… while there are many others who embrace its powdery beauty, the beautiful views and enjoy every bit of it. They are the ones who prefer to discover new places in winter and it’s still the perfect time to enjoy a glass of bubbly. So, without further ado, here are our destination ideas: Europe’s perfect winter cities to visit before the snow melts.

Kemi, Finland

Kemi is a town in Finland, close to the Italian city of Torino, famous for its chromium mine (the only one in Europe) and its paper mills. Oh, and its snow castle, the largest one in the world. Each winter, the SnowCastle of Kemi is built to accommodate visitors from all over the world. Make no mistake, it is huge, with a surface that has varied between 13,000 and over 20,000 square meters (more than 3 to almost 5 acres) over the years. Where better to enjoy a glass of bubbly than in the SnowRestaurant with seats covered in reindeer fur, an ecumenical SnowChapel, and a SnowHotel with a choice of rooms, including a Honeymoon Suite and it’s home to a series of special events and performances over the months it stands.

Interlaken, Switzerland

There are many places in Europe that are worth a visit both in the summer and the winter and Interlaken is one of them. It is a small town with under 6,000 inhabitants, but it serves as a base from where the surrounding areas – the Swiss Alps, the lakes Brienz and Thun, the Jungfrau Park and the many other opportunities to have fun in the snow – like skiing and snowboarding and what better way to end a day in the snow than with some Après ski and a glass of bubbly in hand as you take in the stunning views.

Reykjavik, Iceland

Reykjavik bears the distinction of being the world’s northernmost capital and has long winters. The Golden Circle route is the most popular sightseeing route in Iceland it contains the highly active Geysir Hot Spring Area, probably the most beautiful waterfall in Iceland. Enjoy jeep, snowmobile or skiing trips on Iceland’s second largest glacier Langjokull. Then if you get the chance, watch The Northern Lights with a glass of bubbly in hand it truly is a fairytale experience.
