Reykjavik, Iceland

"It may seem counterintuitive to consider Iceland in winter, but hear us out. It's the off season and therefore surprisingly affordable. The mere 6 hours of daylight only up your chances of witnessing the majestic Northern Lights. And the 40-degree temps shouldn't stop you from taking a dip outside -- it's famous geothermal spa, the Blue Lagoon, offers mineral-rich waters averaging 100 degrees." -- Sara Gilliam, Senior Interactive Producer
