When it’s cold you just want to snuggle in front of the fireplace and enjoy a glass of mulled wine (or hot chocolate!) But it can get even better. Just imagine staying in these a-ma-zing winter chalets and lodges. Find out where you can book them!

Chalet Zermat Peak, Switserland
In at number 1 is this amazing chalet that sleeps up to 10-12 people and has a full staff catering (with a personal chef!), a large hottub and like every good chalet, it has a fireplace. This luxury chalet, located just minutes away from the centre of Zermatt, enjoys breath-taking panoramic views across the entire village and mountain ranges. If you sleep here you’ll be welcomed with champagne and you get a laptop for you to use. Prices are not available on the website, so that says enough.

4. Wrangell St. Elias National Park Lodge, Alaska
Voted as one of the best places to stay in Alaska, this lodge is surrounded by the most amazing nature and wildlife parks.
You can hear bears roam, wild moose graze and birds tweet. It’s the ultimate lodging experience for the adventurous traveler.
To get here, you must travel by a small plane and it’s not an easy destination to book. This needs to be planned. But the reward is one of a kind. The best wilderness experience you will get.

Ooh how we always try to find something that special, convenient and of course not too expensive place to stay whilst traveling.
The perfect accommodation. Thanks to companies like Airbnb and Nightswapping, we can sleep in some of the most fantastic places and areas in the world. There are countless hotels, hostels, bed & breakfast to rest your head, but sometimes you come across that very special one. To give you some inspiration for your next adventure, we’ve listed our top 5 wanderlust hotels:

2. 727 Fuselage Home in Costa Rica
Imagine waking up in a luxurious plane without the fear of crashing! (that’s my daydream) A refurbished vintage 1965 Boeing 727 which in its prior life shuttled globetrotters on South Africa Air and Avianca Airlines. It has been build into this amazing treehouse. This accommodation is quite famous nowadays so expect to pay about 400 dollars per night.

3. Free Spirit Spheres, Canada
These are treehouses for adults. Which is great because no matter how old we are, we always want to sleep in a treehouse! Tucked away in the rainforest of Vancouver Island in Canada, here you will find yourself one with nature. Write it down, it’s for your bucketlist!

4. Das Park Hotel in Germany
Maximum comfort in minimum space. Yes, it can be done! 
Here you sleep in “use to be” rain pipes. Guests can request a key code online and pay whatever they can afford, which gives that extra friendly touch to it.

5. Poseidon Undersea Resort in Fiji
This one is for the honeymooners. Or the the extreme traveller. Or the rich kid. Well, it’s just a very cool underwater hotel and it should be for anyone! Poseidon Mystery Island comprises approximately 225 acres and is about a mile long. Surrounded by a 5,000-acre (Holy moly!) lagoon, sea life will surround you. It’s still not ready and it’s not clear yet when it will open but an estimated 150,000 potential guests have registered to stay there.
