Crisp fresh air, glorious views and not another soul in sight for miles.

Sound tempting?

If this January has already found you hankering for an escape from the daily grind (we hear you), a stay in a remote log cabin could be just the answer.

Hidden among spectacular vistas, from Norwegian glaciers to Scottish mountains, and furnished with cosy beds and sheepskin rugs, these cabins provide the perfect antidote to city life. 

So switch off your phone and settle in for a rare moment of peace and quiet.

La Petite Cabane, Switzerland

Situated in the middle of a sloping field above a tiny village in Morges, Switzerland, cabin holidays don't get much more remote than this. Hike or bike your way around the beautiful landscape or visit the nearby Lake Geneva before retiring to the simple but charming "petit cabane".

Basecamp Nordenskiöld, Norway

If you are looking for an extreme level of escapism, Basecamp Nordenskiöld could be the answer. A five-bedroom hotel resting at the base of the Nordenskiöld glacier, it is the northernmost cabin in the world and the last point that motorised vehicles can reach before skis or dog sleds become a necessity.

You will have to wave goodbye to WiFi and prepare yourself for no electricity or running water, but in their place you will find an authentic wooden sauna, drinking water made by melted glaciers and an unforgettable adventure.
