If you are looking for something a tad bit…cooler, then visit Sweden, and especially its capital, Stockholm, which is as cool and beautiful, as its architecture, design and inhabitants. Hop on a ferry and explore the 14 islands that make up the archipelago of the city, visit the Moderna Museet as well as the National Museum. Wander the streets of the lovely old town of Gamla stan. And after you unwind at one of the dozens of cafes in the capital, grab a ski uniform and go skiing in the mountains for the ultimate experience.
Where to stay:
At the chalet Copperhill Mountain Lodge created by American architect Peter Bohlin, which is filled with fireplaces and furniture, bearing the signatures of Tom Dixon and Patricia Urquiola. Make sure you book an appointment for a Samezen massage and then enjoy the mountain views from the heated pool.
