Beyoncé knows you need something to look at when you want to get away from your family this holiday season. That’s why she’s sharing photos of her family.

On Christmas day, the singer, 33, posted pictures to her Instagram of her recent trip to Iceland for husband Jay Z‘s 45th birthday.

The couple celebrated with champagne in the snow and a helicopter ride.

According to the local news outlets, the pair stayed at Iceland’s ritzy The Trophy Lodge, which is billed as a “private luxury resort and spa” that is “fit for a king.”

Bey posted even more photos on her website, showing the pair relaxing in the famous Blue Lagoon geothermal spa and participating in a little social activism by posing in the “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” gesture from the Ferguson protests.

One thing’s for sure: Beyoncé makes one hell of a snow angel.
