32. Oslo, Norway
Why you should go: Oslo’s daylight temperatures hit average highs in the 30s from December through March—warmer than you thought, right? It’s the perfect climate to play outdoors: Cross-country ski the miles of trails around the city; fly down Korketrekkeren, the area’s most popular toboggan run; and learn about 1,000 years of ski history at Holmenkollen Ski Museum & Tower, under the famous Holmenkollen Ski Jump, the oldest of its kind in the world.
Why it’s a steal: The median airfare to Oslo is $560 between December and March, while hotels go for an average nightly rate of $177, a savings of 10 percent over the fall months.
Where to stay: You can’t get closer to the city’s main attractions than First Hotel Millennium, just around the corner from Karl Johans gate and Parliament. The 114 rooms start at $103, and, in true Scandinavian style, are clean, bright, and roomy, with lots of natural accents.
