Not for the faint of heart: the Canvas Hotel, featuring extreme cycling in Norway. Founded by a Norwegian mountain bike aficionado, the resort offers guided biking (for all levels) throughout the neighboring granite hills and forests. After a day of biking, guests can enjoy one of the portable soaking tubs or take a quick dip in the lake before retiring to the comfort of a yurt. Bare bones luxe, duly earned. For more, go to Canvas Hotel.
