KURHO­TEL SKODS­BORG, DEN­MARK

Twin Scandi-style heal­ing with hardy out­door chal­lenges at Kurho­tel Skods­borg. With five-star in­te­ri­ors and de­li­ciously fresh, sea­sonal menus, the real high­light is the spa, fea­tur­ing an in­clu­sive menu of fa­cials and body ther­a­pies, daily yoga (Sva­roopa yoga is great for creaky backs) and 16 wa­ter-based cool­ing and warm­ing ex­pe­ri­ences. Par­tic­i­pat­ing in the Sau­naGus is a must as the Gusmester cooks up a po­tent blend of herbs and oils on the hot coals, be­fore hyp­not­i­cally flick­ing a muslin cloth over your body to cre­ate an in­tense heat. Then, wrapped in a fluffy robe, you are led across the snow and into the Baltic Sea. Not for the faint-hearted, but that eu­phoric feel­ing is ad­dic­tive! De­tails: The ho­tel is a 20-minute drive from Copen­hagen Air­port. Three-night in­clu­sive spa breaks from £999/€1,100; heal­inghol­i­days.co.uk; skods­borg.dk/en
