Health and well-being in the widest sense have been a dominant trend in Sweden, especially over the past decade.
One result of this strong movement is that a multitude of new gyms, spas and other health facilities of every style imaginable have opened all around the country, and in particular in the south. The selection of day spas, gyms, classic spas and all manner of wellness facilities is impressive not only in and around the major cities, but also in many smaller towns and villages, and throughout the countryside.
Many leading hotels have built first-rate spas, offering favourable deals for weekend getaways. A large number of new establishments have also opened, offering spas and wellness, cozy accommodation and fine gastronomy, all included in holistic experiences that often also include nature, as many of these new facilities are housed in splendid natural settings. Most of them stay open through the off-season as well. Spring and autumn are ideal seasons for a weekend visit for those who wish to savour Sweden´s unique mix of calm, quiet, exquisite and meditative natural experiences, and pleasures for body, mind and soul, whether your desire is the the open landscape and long white beaches of Skåne, the barren, dramatic scenery of the islands of Gotland or Öland, or the deep, fairy-tale forests and lakelands of Västergötland, Dalsland, Småland or Östergötland

If you think adventure and learning are two things that always go hand in hand, get out your hiking boots and some sun screen because more than 45% of New Mexico is in public ownership, meaning there are endless recreational opportunities for you to enjoy.

The Camino Real de Tierra Adentro (The Royal Road of the Interior) was an 1550 mile road that linked Mexico City to San Juan Pueblo, north of Santa Fe. For over four hundred years, it provided a vital transportation corridor for the Spanish Colonial exploration and settlement of what is now New Mexico. It served as an international trail of commerce. Remnants of the road are still visible in places. In other places, the old road has become part of the State’s modern highway system

The Swiss Riviera enjoys a particularly mild and pleasant climate thanks to its privileged location on the shores of Lake Geneva and at the foot of the Alps.
The diversity of excursions, be it by bus, train or boat, and of sports (water sports, tennis, golf, horse-riding, hiking) as well as of entertainment offered by the region allows each and everyone, no matter what age, to spend their time ideally.
There is always something happening on the Swiss Riviera, whether it be the international events punctuating the year: the Jazz Festival in July, during the winter season the theatre performances and the classical music concerts, and the Christmas market and the “Festival du rire”.
Between lake and mountain, we wish you a pleasant stay !
