No Photoshop here! When a friend sent us this picture we definitely did a double-take (then a triple-take). The Polar Bear Habitat in Cochrane, Ontario has redefined the concept of the cold water Polar Bear swim.

Safe behind a thick protective glass divider, adults and kids can swim alongside 24-year old Nanook and young twins Nakita and Aurora all summer long. The bears were each rescued after their mothers were killed in the wild.

This certainly qualifies as an unusual holiday escape. Would your kids be brave enough to try this?
