If you haven’t been indoctrinated into hygge
(pronounced hoo-gah) — the ultra-satisfying lifestyle choice that’s essentially a winter-long permission slip for staying in and curling up — prepare to have your mind blown. The Danish philosophy is all about creating an environment of contentment and coziness
, preferably with your closest friends and family, and most often when the temps outside make you want to light some candles and find your nearest throw. Really, say the Danes, it’s just about making any moment feel special. Want to take your hygge practice
to new heights? How about a hygge holiday? These 50 hideout spots around the globe take the spirit of warmth, coziness, and embracing simple pleasures to a whole new level.
