This Magical Alberta Nordic Spa Has Transformed With A Brand New Look & 2 More Pools
Anyone up for a spa date?
If you've been meaning to check out Alberta's Kananaskis Nordic Spa, then you should go this fall to see its brand new look. The Kananaskis Nordic Spa opened last year but it has now completed its "Phase 2" by adding new elements and doing a redesign! This is the best place to go in Alberta to relax and recharge. It makes the perfect fall escape.
What is a "Nordic Spa"? Rooted in Scandinavian hydrotherapy traditions, it's essentially a cycle of hot, warm, cold, and rest. That means that you can relax in a hot pool or sauna for about 15 minutes, then take a cold plunge or shower for a few moments, relaxing until you're ready to start the cycle over again. You'll be amazed at how time slips away when you're in this blissful state of relaxation.
Many other Nordic or Scandinavian spas have strict silence policies, so you might feel a bit like a monk while you're there! The Kananaskis Nordic Spa flips the script and wants you to connect with your friends and other guests.
The newest additions to the spa include a two-storey bistro lounge and a relaxation deck, where you can chat with your friends and others from the spa.
The new look of the spa has made way for two new pools. The new Reflection Pool is a medium-temperature salt-water pool. Saltwater helps create a sense of buoyancy and lightness so it's way more fun than your average hot tub. Plus, the salt means that the water is full of magnesium, which is great for soothing muscles.
The second new pool, called the Elements pool, is going to be the most popular one, for sure, with its waterfalls and fire globe!
This adults-only spa makes the perfect getaway from Calgary. The indoor and outdoor spa has outdoor pools, saunas and steam cabins, winterized hammocks, outdoor fire pits and the new Two Trees Bistro.
It's not just a peaceful retreat, it's actually a fun interactive activity you can do all the time with your friends. It takes just over an hour to get to the spa from Calgary, so it's easy to fit into your weekend plans.
