Ice Hotel WHAT’S COOLER THAN COOL

a b c d e f g

The original and still the best – make the most of a unique opportunity to spend a night sleeping in the Swedish ICEHOTEL. As its name would suggest, the hotel is constructed entirely of snow and ice – a feat made possible due to its location 200km north of the Arctic Circle. First built in 1989, the hotel is rebuilt in a different way each year. Just like snowflakes, no two are ever the same.

h I j k l m n o p q

You’ll spend your first night tucked up in one of their signature ice rooms, where even the bed is carved out of the frozen landscape. Two slightly warmer nights will then be spent in a Nordic chalet taking in your beautiful surroundings while sat next to a fire. During your stay, learn about the world of ice sculpting and take on an ice sculpting masterclass. On your final evening, you’ll be whisked out to the wilderness for an unforgettable dinner followed by an opportunity to stargaze and perhaps catch a glimpse of the elusive Northern Lights shimmering above you.

Tomatina Festival A FOOD FIGHT FIESTA

a b c d e f g h i

Every August since 1945, the sleepy Valencian town of Buñol has hosted what is undoubtedly the messiest, and probably the most fun festival in Europe, La Tomatina. The riotous mayhem unfolds on the last Wednesday in August and involves a 9am scramble to snatch a ham from the top of a greased pole, after which 120 tonnes of ripe tomatoes are tipped from trucks and onto the waiting participants.

j k l m n o p

La Tomatina is a day of messy and raucous fun and you’ll be staying right in the middle of the action. Armed with some tomatoes, a GoPro and a fresh change of clothes stowed safely away in your hotel*, you’ll want for nothing. Just don’t pack a white t-shirt! * Swimming goggles are also highly recommended as it turns out tomato juice really stings your eyes.

To paraphrase a crab in a movie we’re not going to mention by name, life is better under the sea. A message that Atlantis, the Palm, has well and truly taken to heart with its underwater rooms.

And if aquarium views aren’t enough, the suite also comes with 24-hour butler service to cater to your every whim.

Volcano Banquet LAND OF FIRE AND ICE

a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r

Have you ever dined in the belly of an extinct volcano? A visit to Iceland offers you an opportunity to unlock this unique possibility. You’ll take a private helicopter over the startlingly beautiful Icelandic landscape before touching down and making your way into the cave-like magma chamber of a long-dormant volcano for a privately hosted BBQ. With white tablecloths, crystal glassware and some beers nestled in the ice, this experience is definitely one for the bucket list. Next up, you’ll have the opportunity to swim between two continents taking the plunge and diving between tectonic plates. And with five nights at the iconic ION Hotel (the best place to spot the Northern Lights), Super Jeep expeditions, whale watching and a trip to the legendary Blue Lagoon, this is a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience. *Sounds like the world’s most memorable trip? Why not let us send a camera crew to record the trip and make the Prize experience last that bit longer.
