Are you currently being crushed into a pulp by the weight of life's problems? If so, there's a magical place where you can escape reality for a temporary while and recuperate before facing the world again.
Nordik Spa Nature is the biggest luxury biggest spa in Canada. Situated at the edge of Gatineau Park, it's only an 18 minute drive from Ottawa and a four-hour drive from Toronto. It is tucked away in a forest of the cozy town of Old Chelsea and perfectly mixes the beauty of nature with the tranquility of an oasis environment.
The spa has three main sections: Borëa (Whisper), Kassandra (Silent) and Panorama (Social). Each one is tailored for specific services that provide multi-sensory experiences, including saunas, steam rooms, massages and ritualistic therapies.
With 9 outdoor baths, 9 saunas, 4 restaurant services, a panoramic pool, a saltwater pool, a yoga and meditation room, outdoor massage pavilions and plenty of lounging space, Nordik Spa-Nature is truly a resort for relaxation.
One of the coolest features of the spa is their Källa treatment, which takes place in their large saltwater pool. It's only the second of its kind in the world, with the first being in Switzerland. The waters of the 1,200-cubic-foot pool consist of 10 tonnes of Epsom salts, so you can easily stay afloat. The purpose of floating is to relax your body and mind so you come out of it in an invigorated state.
A day pass to the spa costs $64 per person, and it gives you access to all of the spa areas. The Källa treatment costs extra, but it is highly recommended.
