Looking for a quiet escape? A visit to the Scandinave Spa Blue Mountain will leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed. Nestled near the Blue Mountain Village, the 25-acre property has some of the most beautiful views Mother Nature has to offer, and it's just a short two-hour drive from Toronto. Scandinave Spa's outdoor thermal pools are reminiscent of a trip to Iceland's Blue Lagoon hot springs without leaving Ontario.

Starting with a 15-minute stay in the dry sauna, the heat helps circulation and imparts a sense of calm to the body.

There are also outdoor thermal pools for an added area of relaxation.
