Just 10 minutes from downtown Ottawa, Le Nordik is located in a natural environment, at the entrance of Gatineau Park. From cedar-walled huts to pristine outdoor waterfalls, the spa's designers looked to its natural setting for inspiration. That feeling is carried through in all the spa treatments you'll receive at Le Nordik. The result? A head-to-toe relaxation experience, naturally.
Nordic Baths in Small Town Quebec
Le Nordik is a Scandinavian-style spa, and uses extreme hot and cold techniques that originated in Finland more than 2,000 years ago. First, you'll go in a Finnish sauna or steam bath to cleanse the toxins from your body. Cool and refresh your skin by then stepping under the Nordic waterfall. Finally, relax in one of the spa's many calming areas. In true Nordic baths, the process is repeated three to four times. Your mind and muscles will feel relaxed, you'll sleep better – and you'll be eager to try Le Nordik's many other treatments.
Swedish Massage and Hot Stone Relief
Bring a group, because up to 17 people can receive massages simultaneously. Try a Swedish massage, which improves blood circulation and eliminates stress. Or take in a California-style treatment, where fluid motions are used to clear your mind and relax your entire body. Le Nordik also offers hot stone massage therapy, in which warm stones are placed in strategic locations for deep muscle and intense joint relief.
And Finally, A Break from Relaxation
After a day of focusing on your mind and self, turn your attention to your appetite. Sample from the extensive wine list, or select a light meal from the health-conscious menu: it features everything from fish, to creamy soups, and gourmet sandwiches. No detail was spared on the cafe settings, either. Bring your wine glass by the fireplace, or sit on the terrace and enjoy the view. It's the perfect way to end an afternoon with close friends or business colleagues – or better yet, all on your own.
