After an Elegant Wedding, Virushka Honeymoon in Rome & Finland
Indian men's cricket team skipper Virat Kohli and Bollywood actor Anushka Sharma made all of us swoon over their wedding photos and videos all through the last one week. They tied the knot in a private ceremony in the Borgo Finocchieto in Tuscany, Italy, and headed to Rome from there.
After Rome, the couple took off to Finland, where they are spending their nights trying to watch the Northern Lights.
Picture glass igloos, the Santa Claus Village, sledges and the Northern Lights above the roof over your head. That is how Virat and Anushka are currently celebrating their time away from the hustle-bustle of Mumbai.
After Anushka shared a photo from their honeymoon, with the caption "In heaven, literally," people got to work. Turns out the couple is in Rovaniemi, on the Arctic Circle, the official hometown of Santa Claus. Now famous for its link to the most famous symbol of Christmas, the town of Rovaniemi was nearly destroyed during the Second World War.
The Santa Claus Village is where fairy tales meet reality, and seems in tandem with Virat and Anushka's dreamy wedding in Tuscany, Italy, in an 800-year-old heritage resort. Rovaniemi is the capital of Lapland, and is home to Santa Claus. The village is known for some unforgettable views of the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights), which are visible for about 200 nights in a year from Rovaniemi.
Finnish media reported from Lapland that Virat and Anushka's honeymoon in Rovaniemi was organised by the Luxury Action company, which specialises in private and luxury travel, tailor-made experiences in the Arctic and Nordic regions.
On Virat's beanie, in the photo from their honeymoon too, the words 'Luxury Action' can be seen.
"We create high-end experiences and expeditions across the Arctic, Lapland, Finland and the rest of the Nordic region, including Greenland and even the North Pole. All our tours are highly customized according to our customers' wishes," says the official website of the company that custom-made Virat and Anushka's Arctic honeymoon.
And with Christmas right round the corner, Virat and Anushka couldn't seem to have chosen a better place for their honeymoon after Rome!
The report on the Finnish website also states that the popularity of Lapland soared moments after Anushka's honeymoon photo made it to Instagram.
Virat and Anushka are expected to return to India in the coming week. Their Delhi reception is on December 21, which will be followed by a bash in Mumbai on December 26. After that, the couple will fly off to South Africa for the next leg of their honeymoon, which will take place along the sidelines of the Virat-led Indian cricket team's test series against South Africa.
