The couple could not stop in Copenhagen without visiting what has been named one of the world’s best restaurants: Noma, a Scandinavian restaurant known for eclectic and unique dishes that showcase every ingredient in the most natural form.

Noma has three menus that move along with the seasons. From September 23-December 18, the Game and forest season menu explores various avenues to taste meat, greens, berries and other natural produce. January 18-May 21 is deemed ocean season, for fans of seafood. It is also the only season with a lunch menu.


René Redzepi, Danish chef and founder of Noma, has been cooking since he was 18 years old. When he first opened Noma, there were only 12 tables inside. It has since moved to a new location but acquiring a seat remains to be difficult. Reservations open on the sixth day of every month, but be sure to book three months in advance.

Another famous location the duo visited is the Swedish Lapland, located in Northern Sweden and stretches across Finland, Norway, and Russia. Situated in the Arctic Circle, Lapland is the perfect snowy getaway with nature and hills to provide beautiful scenery and wonderful views from any angle.

Lapland isn’t fairly populated, but there are Indigenous people that have inhabited the area for hundreds of years: The Sámi peole, are the European Union’s sole natives with a culture that one can define as historical and distinct, closely connected with the land and nature that surrounds them. The Sámi people offer tours around their villages as well as attractions for travelers to gain a better understanding of their culture.

When visiting Lapland, be sure to have some fun in the snow and go skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, opt for a dogsled tour, or hike the mountains. Most importantly, you cannot miss the aurora borealis!

Another famous destination that the pair visited is the beautiful Treehotel in Sweden, where guests can stay overnight in a magnificently built treehouse immersed in the middle of the wild.

Treehotel consists of eight rooms one can stay in: The Mirrorcube, Bird’s Nest, The Cabin, 7th Room, The Ufo, Dragonfly, The Blue Cone, and The Guesthouse. Each is different from the other and all consist of particular features.

Treehotel is an achieved dream for Kent Lindvall and Britta Jonsson-Lindvall, who wanted to make a living in their home village in the Swedish Lapland. In order to generate some income, the pair rented out a guesthouse.

One of these people was filmmaker Jonas Selberg Augustsén. The film he was working on consisted of a treehouse, but when filming was over, the treehouse was no longer needed. Britta decided to rent out the treehouse to guests while Kent went on a fishing trip with a few friends around the same time, and these friends happened to be architects.

While they were away, they all came up with different potential designs for treehouses. Through this, Bird’s Nest, The Ufo, The Cabin, Mirrorcube, and The Blue Cone were born.

When staying at Treehotel, there are numerous activities available, including: fishing and discovering wildlife on a Moose Safari. Visit the Husky Home and see how they are trained as sled dogs. Get crafty in the kitchen with traditional bread baking. At Treehotel, you will never run out of things to do.

Arctic Bath

Another prominent location the newlyweds visited was the Arctic Bath in Sweden. Similar to Treehotel, Arctic Bath provides an authentically-designed place to stay while indulging in nature. In fact, Arctic Bath was inspired after Treehotel opened in 2010. The designer of the Bird’s Nest tree house, architect Bertil Harström, as well as designer Johann Kauppi, designed the Arctic Bath in 2013.

The building physically floats atop the Lule River, south of the Arctic Circle. It was built with timber used to represent logs building up in the river. Lule River was once a popular timber transporting river, but it is used less for that purpose today. Although, it is still regarded as one of Sweden’s most profitable rivers.

At Arctic Bath, not only will you have the chance to experience amazing views – or even the aurora borealis if you come during wintertime – you will have the chance to relax in the famous spa, go ice fishing, travel on a husky sled, or cruise on a Northern Lights snowmobile tour.

Holmen Lofoten

Holmen Lofoten in Norway is another destination that the two lovebirds visited on their honeymoon. Similar to Treehotel and Arctic Bath, Holmen Lofoten is a hotel that focuses on simplicity while featuring different experiences: Kitchen On The Edge Of The World and the bed and breakfast that runs from March through October.

Founder Ingunn Rasmussen wanted to share a piece of her upbringing and her love of nature with the world. Since she grew up living off of the land, you are given the opportunity to fish, hike, swim, and dine on gourmet cuisine at Holmen Lofoten.
