It might be the darkest and coldest time of year, but here at Not In The Guidebooks, we believe that the shortest days represent the perfect opportunity to discover some incredible Winter experiences, whether that’s a winter wonderland, or a spectacular mountainous landscape made all the more beautiful by the northern lights or frozen waterfalls.

It could be a winter break to snowy Lapland, where you can gaze at the Northern Lights by night and enjoy husky safaris by day in the beautiful, quiet wilderness, or it might be a trip to the explosive island of Iceland to take in waterfalls, volcanoes and geysers – whatever your choice, with Not In The Guidebooks you can guarantee that your trip will get you off the beaten track and help you discover your chosen destination like a local.
