Forget about the sun, just for a few moments. It’ll still be there when winter is over, but there’s something truly magical about winter travel. The best winter destinations offer snowy mountain tops, Christmas markets, picturesque cities and hot tubs, which are never more appreciated than when it’s -3° outside. Whether it’s skiing, Aurora Borealis spotting or just sitting by the fire with some cocoa, according to research conducted by Focus Clinics, these “hot” winter destinations are captivating travelers, gaining more Instragram posts than any other winter destinations. There must be a reason, right?
