Why hike the St. Croix Valley in the winter? Spectacular views are enhanced by dustings of white glitter. Gone are the pesky insects and thick, stifling mugginess of summer. Crisp and cool air infuses the soul with energy and invigorates the body in a way that only the cold-weather months can inspire.
What is "Hygge"? Think wool socks and sweaters, candlelight, sheared blankets, mulled wine and hot chocolate, coffee with friends, sitting by the fire, small gatherings with simple, wholesome foods, sharing a rich dessert or glass of cognac, being happy and content. Read on to explore how you can experience "hygge" in the St. Croix Valley.
