CopenHot, Copenhagen

CopenHot is more than a little unconventional. Yes, you can cruise the Copenhagen canals in a private hot tub boat, and get a prime view of all the city's sights at the same time. You can also indulge in its hot tubs on Refshæløen, enjoy their waterfront sauna and jump into the clean harbour to cool off too. It's certainly an experience to remember.
