There are some languages that have words for which there is no single or defined translation. In Danish, hygge (pronounced “HUE-gah”) is one such word. It’s basically a word for enjoying life’s simple pleasures. During the winter, especially, we embrace the feeling of hygge as we seek cozy spaces and meaningful time spent with family and friends. Hygge promotes emotional wellbeing and gives us a sense of togetherness and contentment whether we are at home or out, doing something ordinary or extraordinary.
At Bluefin Bay Family of Resorts, we’ll help you get into a hygge state of mind. Imagine a day spent enjoying winter fun: carving out the fresh powder at Lutsen Mountains, gliding along freshly groomed cross-country ski trails, or exploring a local frozen river followed by a cozy dinner at the Bluefin Grille. Afterwards, curl up with a good book or jovial conversation with loved ones around a warm fire while listening to the waves of Lake Superior just outside your window.
Check out all the complimentary resort guided activities and entertainment available during your stay – We even have complimentary cross-country ski, snowshoes, and ice skate rentals. Indoors, you’ll enjoy upscale accommodations, fireplaces, and breathtaking views of Lake Superior. Everyone will be able to create their perfect recipe for hygge!
Here on Minnesota’s North Shore of Lake Superior, we are so into the embracing of hygge that there’s even a festival to celebrate it! Check out some fun local events happening February 9-15 during the Hygge Festival.
