Looking for a one-of-a-kind winter getaway?

Check out the boldest -- and coldest -- vacation destinations around!

Where better to begin your chill-out than a country named Iceland, which is known for its otherworldly landscapes and the Blue Lagoon Geothermal spa.

It's a luxurious hotel and spa featuring a hot spring world-renowned for its therapeutic properties.

Next on our list is the Park Hyatt Resort at Beaver Creek in Colorado.

The accommodations at 9,600 feet will leave you feeling elevated, with activities that include skating, skiing, snowmobiling and dog sledding.

Finally the Ice Hotel in Sweden makes our winter vacation list.

Each 41 degree "hibernation chamber" is unique -- and features a bed that's a slab of ice.
