When the sun shines and temperatures rise, we’re often tempted to explore and fill our days with all sorts of fun activities, which is why it’s so important to also allow yourself time to take a breather and relax in an environment that’s conducive to rejuvenation. A spa day – combining relaxation, gourmet delights and nature – is an excellent way to stop for a moment and catch your breath. With five locations in different regions of Quebec, Strøm Nordic Spa is the ideal place to take a break, contemplate the landscape and enjoy the best of summer.

Five wellness destinations to discover

As the brand’s latest addition, Strøm Nordic Spa in Saint-Sauveur joins a long list of Scandinavian-inspired spas already established in the Laurentians. It is actually located on the very spot where the first Nordic spa in Quebec opened in the 1960s. The proximity of the spa buildings to the Simon River that runs through makes it easy to move between the hot and cold facilities as part of the thermal experience.

The Strøm Nordic Spa in Old Québec City offers a setting that blends the tranquillity of the St. Lawrence River with the ambiance of a place steeped in history, to create one of Quebec’s grandest spas, renowned the world over. The infinity pool and Laga flotation bath are just some of the facilities you’ll love to escape to, lulled by the soothing power of water.

The Strøm Nordic Spa on Nuns’ Island, just minutes from downtown Montreal, is a haven of peace that will make you forget how close you are to the metropolis! This establishment, Strøm’s very first, invites you to enjoy an environment between nature and the city and to admire the majestic view of the lake, sparkling under the summer sun.

The Strøm Nordic Spa in Mont-Saint-Hilaire, built at the foot of the Gault nature reserve, has been designed to enhance moments of contemplation. The panoramic room impresses with its large windows that turn the natural landscape before your eyes into the star of the show. This popular spa in the Montérégie region boasts an outdoor pool, salt scrub area and innovative relaxation rooms.
