When you least expect it, winter will be here enveloping us all in her brutal and blustery cold, dead limbs. But before you throw in the towel and hastily book a one-way ticket to Costa Rica for the next five months, consider how awesomely comfy it would be to spend the season holed up in one of these remarkable cabins.
Tucked away in the world's backwoods, from Norway to New Zealand, these humble lodges prove there are certainly worse places to be caught in a white-out. Have a look, and stay warm out there.
