Some people travel all the way to Scandinavian countries to enjoy special Nordic baths, Finnish saunas and other spas and steam rooms, but visitors taking tours of Ottawa just need to drive 10 minutes outside the city to indulge in Canada's finest relaxation techniques at Nordik Spa-Nature.
This haven is located in the midst of some of the finest outdoor scenery visitors will find during travel to the region around Ottawa, just outside Gatineau Park. Visitors can unwind in the spa's Nordic baths and waterfalls, or take a steam bath. The facility also boasts a Finnish sauna and other relaxation areas, plus massages and body treatments as well as meals and a wine and cheese service.
A retreat to this spa is a perfect option for a romantic weekend getaway, but could also be a great addition to a girls' weekend away. Depending in which spa options guests choose to partake, the visit to Nordik Spa-Nature could take as little as two hours - leaving plenty of time in the day to head back toward Parliament Hill or set off on a wintry hike through Gatineau Park.
