There’s nothing better than sleepily swinging in a hammock held by giant evergreen trees on a sunny day. When I decided to check out the Scandinave Spa Mont-Tremblant, I had no idea what to expect.
The spa is beautiful, with different pools, tubs, relaxation areas and showers. Talking is discouraged, but that’s okay because you’ll want to take everything in and just zen out. So how does it work?
First, you spend 15 minutes in the warming your body in the hot baths, followed by a dip in the cold baths for a refreshing rinse. After that, relax in the resting areas and start all over again. (For a detailed description of these sessions, click here.)
What I love is the variety of areas. For the hot cycle, you can choose to go into a hot tub, stretch out on a chair by the outdoor fire pit, or visit the Eucalyptus steam room.
For the refreshing rinse, you can go into the cold pools, swim in the lake or take an outdoor shower.
The relaxation areas are my favourite. Giant couch pods (pictured in second pic) big enough for two overlook the lake. A solarium with large glass windows allow you to relax and see what’s going on in the spa below. Down by the water you can sit on the deck and take in the lake. Scattered throughout the trees are large hammocks that can fit two people. I loved staring up at the blue sky and breathing in the mountain air.
Hydration is important, and there are water and tea stations throughout the spa. There’s also a cafe where you can get a healthy lunch. You can easily spend the entire day here! A day in the baths cost $48.00 per person. To complete your experience, you can add on a massage or choose from a long list of pampering services.
