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.

view of Gatineau Park.
