A spa day like you’ve never seen

Nordik Spa Nature, the largest spa in North America, aims to seduce spa-goers with the Banyä treatment, inspired by thousand-year-old traditional Russian practices. Vodka shooters, exfoliation with salts and essential oils and a whipping ritual (!) with birch veniks will all be part of this invigorating – and unusual – 60-minute experience. This treatment is offered in the new Banyä sauna, a perfectly balanced environment of dry heat and steam, known to promote blood circulation, deep-clean the skin, eliminate toxins, boost the immune system and leave you with a profound feeling of relaxation.

Keep moving at Kenauk!

Take a big bite of nature at Kenauk Nature! Discover the beauty of the oldest protected domain in North America and follow the new 100-km-long (62 mi.) hiking trail, parts of which will be accessible starting June 24. Choose a glamping vacation and stay in a peaceful yurt overlooking the stream and marshland of the Needle Lake. Or for even more comfort, rent the new Les Rapides deluxe chalet, located next to the Kinonge River and ideal for a romantic vacation.

Elegant by nature

Discover a unique luxury boutique hotel: the O’Brien House! A stay to this sumptuous 1930s mansion, completely restored to its original splendour, is like a trip back in time. This haven overlooking Meech Lake was built for businessman Ambrose O’Brien, founding member of the Montreal Canadiens and founder of the National Hockey Association. This carefully restored hotel has 11 rooms in the main house and two tree-houses in the forest, each displaying a unique design and breathtaking view of Gatineau Park.
