ARCTIC EXPERIENCE
Alternating hot and cold is said to be a great vascular workout and immune booster – so book yourself in to the new Arctic Living Package in Swedish Lapland for a private and traditional three-hour Nordic sauna followed by invigorating ice river plunge. The package also incorporates a three-night stay at Sweden’s Icehotel (one night in an Ice Room), a winter wilderness survival course, plus cross-country skiing and an Arctic Feast packed with healthy Swedish dishes such as smoked reindeer consommé, Arctic char and hot cloudberry soup.

Available December to March 2016, from £1,533 per person including flights from Heathrow to Kiruna : 01737-900605, www.discover-the-world.co.uk

DURHAM DELIGHT
Seaham Hall’s Serenity Spa has been awarded Five Luxury Bubbles – one of only six UK spas to receive this rating – by the Good Spa Guide. The hotel, on a clifftop on Durham’s Heritage Coast, has undergone a £2.5m refurbishment, and the 44,000 sq ft spa has a 20-metre pool, 17 therapy rooms, a hammam, ice fountain, sanarium with crystal light therapy, black granite steam room with amethyst crystal and outdoor hot tubs. Therapists offer a wide range of treatments, many based on ancient principles from Asia, such as Ayurveda, and using organic products. For example, the Abhyanga Massage, £85 for 60 minutes, is said to clear stagnant energy and restore the flow of ‘Prana’, the life force that stimulates your body’s vital energy.

From £169 a night per person, based on two sharing, throughout January 2016. Includes breakfast and full use of spa facilities: 0191-516 1400, www.seaham-hall.co.uk
