CHRISTMAS AND COZY MOMENTS ARE JUST AROUND THE CORNER
Should you want to make a run for it to another country, enjoy the wonders of Iceland during Christmas. This is the darkest time of the year in Iceland in terms of daylight hours − but it's lit up with countless Christmas lights and possibly brightened by a blanket of snow, although it's not a given… especially if you're spending Christmas in Reykjavík. Christmas in Iceland lasts for 26 days, from the 11th of December until the 6th of January, and has 13 Santa Clauses, or Yule Lads. Just as in Denmark, you’ll find Christmas markets, ice skating rinks, countless concerts and Christmas buffets where you can taste some delicious Icelandic Christmas food. The most “prestigious” sweet treat is the “Sarah.” This almond macaroon is biscuit based, chocolate cream-filled and dipped in chocolate, and is affectionately named after Sarah Bernhardt, the famous French actress. Although Danish, they have become synonymous with Christmas in Iceland. What matters most is that they are absolutely delicious.
Still waiting for that special Christmas feeling? If you could use an extra dose of Christmas, you’re in the right city. There is nothing like Copenhagen’s streets dressed in their finest Christmas attire, which infectiously spread the atmosphere among the city's visitors and locals. Get the most out of your stay at the Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel, Copenhagen, where Christmas is the epitome of coziness!

Aarhus has really come into its own in recent years, and no longer sits in the shadow of the Copenhagen capital. Located close to sea and forest, it's also been named one of the most attractive shopping cities in Scandinavia, notably for its charming cobbled streets that wind through the Latin Quarter. And if the many petite boutiques aren't enough: a host of Christmas markets will make sure you don't leave town empty handed.
