Your Guide to 15 Winter Glamping Sites Around the World

Winter’s here and the Arctic wild is calling us near. We’ve been around the world searching for the most creative igloo hotels, the most extravagant snow castles and glaciers that are so huge you can actually walk around inside them. We’ve stayed in hotels and canvas tents, we’ve camped and we’ve glamped, we’ve slept in frozen environs and warmed ourselves in saunas. Now it’s your turn. Get to arctic adventuring, stake out in an igloo waiting for the Aurora Borealis to light up the sky. And hey, who knows, you might even spot a reindeer on the horizon.
