Unwinding at Spa Nordik, North America’s Largest Spa

If you find yourself in Ottawa or Quebec, run, don’t walk, to Nordik Spa Nature. This is North America’s largest spa, and it’s oh so worth spending every minute here. The spa is only 15 minutes away from Ottawa, making it super convenient if you happen to be in town. This massive spa gets it’s roots from Scandinavian countries. They have 10 outdoor baths, 9 saunas, a floating salt water pool (my favourite!) a panoramic pool and multiple restaurants. Paradise? Yes.

The layout

When exploring the spa, it helps to know a little bit about how it’s laid out. The Kaskad area is great if you want some peace and quiet. This is a silent zone. If you still want to chat, but don’t want to be too loud, the Borëa allows you to speak quietly. It’s called the whisper section and it’s perfect for couples. Finally, if you’re here with a few friends and you really want to celebrate the Panorama area is the place to be. Talking is allowed and you can even drink in some of the pools. (more…)
