Our Canadian Spa Bucket List

We've declared January the month of rejuvenation at Province of Canada. We may not be faithful to every New Year resolution we set, but relaxing is one we confidently promise to keep. You can find us laying low at these spas across the country. 

Scandinave - Whistler, BC

Province of Canada - Scandinave Whistler BC

The vibe at this spa is right in line with our idea of what a staycation should look like. Escape the city for the mountains and test out the hydrotherapy benefits at Scandinave's Whistler location.

Drift is the perfect retreat for those interested in a more literal "getaway." Down the coast from Tofino on Vancouver Island is this resort that, like the name suggests, sits on rock and affords guests an Pacific Ocean view. Mix relaxation with fun and sign up for whale watching, surfing, or kayaking excursions following your massage.

Like everything at the Fairmont Banff, the Willow Stream Spa is a luxury escape. This sanctum within the Canadian Rockies comes with a grand indoor pool and individual hot tubs, each complete with a ceiling-height waterfall.

Thermëa is - quite literally - a Winnipeg hot spot. Curl up by the outdoor wood stove, soak in the hot pools, nap in the resting room, and sweat it out in eucalyptus steam. Guests here can forget about the -50°C temperatures for a day.

If lounging in front of the TV in your suite at the Shangri-La isn't enough, the Miraj Hammam health club offers poolside lounging with TV's mounted to the wall. Draw the curtain and call it a day.

Just like it's west coast counterpart, Scandinave Blue Mountain offers a hydrotherapy experience equally as beautiful in the winter as it is in the summer. Guests come here to embrace both the heat and the cold at Ontario's most popular ski resort.

Nap in a porthole, swing in a hammock, soak in the pool, and grab lunch on the rooftop terrace of Bota Bota, the docked ferry-turned-spa in the Old Port of Montreal. Guests, or "passengers", are able to experience water therapies while simultaneously experiencing the rocking of waves from the St. Lawrence River. City meets lake meets spa.

The Nordik Spa is famous for being the largest spa in North America. Unique to this spa is its Källa Treatment, an indoor salt-water pool dug from rock that is the second of its kind in the word (Switzerland being the only other location) and self-proclaimed as "better than the Dead Sea."
