A short 10-minute drive from downtown Ottawa is a blissful paradise and North America’s largest spa: Nordik Spa-Nature. This indoor-outdoor oasis located in the quaint town of Chelsea, Quebec, has all the relaxing features you need including hot and cold pools, numerous saunas, specialty treatments and delicious dining. No matter the season, you’ll want to set aside a few hours, an entire day or even an overnight stay to soak up this epic spa in Canada’s capital region!
Nordik’s world class facilities are inspired by the benefits of Scandinavian traditions like thermotherapy which relaxes the muscles, boosts the immune system and eliminates toxins from the body.
The Nordik thermal experience includes access to the numerous outdoor baths and pools (including an infinity edge pool with a stunning view), different types of saunas, as well as indoor and outdoor relaxation areas. The outdoor areas are extra special in the cold months when the site is surrounded by vibrant fall colours or winter snows!
Add on a specialty treatment like a massage or facial, or unique experiences like Källa (the only salt-water floating pool in America) and Banyä (a festive experience inspired by a Russian tradition).
Dining and drinks
No need to change out of your bathing suit and bath robe while visiting any of the four restaurants and lounges on site – they’re open to spa guests only! Enjoy relaxed fine dining in the cozy Restö; coffee, pastries and other treats in the Mëzz|Café; tapas and drinks in the Panorama Lounge; and craft beer and snacks with breathtaking views from the Biërgarden terrace.
Whether you’re planning to fully immerse yourself in the Nordik experience or explore Gatineau Park and other spectacular attractions in the Outaouais region, the on-site lodges are the perfect home base. The charming, rustic cottages feature multiple bedrooms, modern amenities and breathtaking views.
