This unique spa is located just minutes away from the resort. One treatment starts with a warm up in a Jacuzzi, dry or steam sauna, then cold plunge immediately into the river (which is often frozen). Then, rest by the fireplace until you are ready to do it again. The cycle usually lasts about 45 minutes, and you can repeat as often as you like. Skeptical? You'll feel extraordinarily relaxed after the process. Complete the experience and get a Swedish massage, lounge in the Finnish dry-air sauna or Norwegian steam room, soak in heated Jacuzzis, or take a swim in the river. Spa packages start at $45; (819-425-5524) or www.scandinave.com.
