No-one does winter cosiness like the Scandis. Whether they’re draping their homes in furry throws, scenting kitchens with fresh-baked buns or setting up fireside feasts in snowy glades, they excel at Christmassy cheer.

ARCTIC BATH, NORRBOTTEN COUNTY, SWEDEN

And, we’re looking to the north of Sweden to find fantastical lodgings – like the otherworldly Arctic Bath, new to Smith this month. Here you’ll find the cosiest glass-fronted cabins and hearty Nordic dining, and invigorating ice bathing and icier intrigues (moose safari, anyone?) if you’re chasing chillier thrills. It’s an utterly unique stay for a winter break that feels like a big warm hygge

TREEHOTEL, NORRBOTTEN COUNTY, SWEDEN

Treehotel, Arctic Bath’s predecessor (a mere 10-minute drive away), has graced the pages of many a design magazine for its otherworldly treehouses, which are shaped like bird’s nests, mirror cubes and even a UFO. It’s MO is acquainting guests with the play of the land, with day-trips spanning from sledding to canoeing, wildlife photography to fikas in local villages. All wonderful, but mostly, it’s those magical forest dens you can curl up in at night.
