Many people dream of getting away from the cold in Winter, but if you win a huge jackpot you could jet off to a Winter Wonderland instead. We’ve picked out five of the top destinations you could head to – just don’t forget a warm jacket!
You’ll be in the mood to celebrate after a big lottery win, so why not go to Lapland and tell Santa the good news? It’ll be a dream come true going on a four-day trip to Lapland where you can have a delightful husky and reindeer sleigh ride experience. Even better you’ll get a private meeting with Santa himself and meet all his hard-working elves. If you have kids, then this is the perfect present before Christmas Day itself.
The four-day adventure takes place in Pyha, which is deep in the fells of a National Park. The luxury Pyhatunruri Hotel can be booked from £1475 a night, easy to pay for after your big lottery win.
After your lottery win you can treat you and all your friends to a ski holiday. The Chalet Ottawa in Megeve is situated in the delightful French Alps. It sleeps 14 people for $5,286 – $13,423 / night and what a time you could have there.
This dream destination is just minutes from the luxury resort of Domaine du Mon d’Arbois. Spend your day skiing or just relax in the private al-fresco hot tub, have a swim in the pool or pop in the home movie theatre.
Perhaps with your lottery win, you want to head to Whistler in Canada. It’s a fantastic mountain-resort with so much to do.
