Relaxation in the Heart of Nature
Explore the Uniqueness of this Ontario Spa
We are often asked what makes the Blue Mountain location different from other spas and even our sister Scandinave Spas across Canada. Firstly, we are situated on a 25 acre natural forest of Ontario birch, Canadian maple and pine trees. The Spa also has expansive views of the UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve Niagara Escarpment. Secondly, as the seasons change, the experience here as well as in the South Georgian Bay region changes. In Spring & Summer Guests can explore our certified Forest Bathing Trail, hike or cycle before their visit on the many trails and routes or take a short drive to the impressive shores of Georgian Bay. Visitors in the Fall are treated to colourful tree foliage on the Escarpment as well as the occasional turtle, tree frog or wild turkey. In the winter months, Guests soak in the Baths and can see Blue Mountain Resort skiers carve down the slopes under the night lights.
Important to Know
Weekends and Holidays are busier times at Scandinave Spa; once we reach capacity, we will start a wait list for access to the Scandinavian Baths. We strive to maintain the integrity of the experience so the number of Guests checked in at one time is monitored. There is no guarantee that all Guests on the list will be checked in; we do our best to estimate wait times but that is dependent upon checked-in Guests leaving.
For wait list updates, please visit our Twitter Feed (@Scandinaveblue).
All Guests must be 18 years of age or older, and may be asked to show identification.

A Tranquil, Phone-Free Environment
Scandinave Spa is a quiet, tranquil environment and we ask all Guests to be mindful of others. Phones, cameras and other electronic devices are not permitted in the Scandinavian Baths activity.
The benefits of hydrotherapy and how it works on your mind and body are a part of our core values.
The first stage includes heating the body up which dilates the blood vessels on the surface of the skin, reduces blood pressure, and increases blood flow to the skin and muscles. The increase in body temperature causes considerable perspiration, which helps cleanse the skin and release the body’s negative energy.
- Eucalyptus Steam Bath
- Finnish Sauna
- Infrared Sauna
- Hot Baths
The second stage includes closing the pores of the skin with a brief, but, highly beneficial cool rinse. A dip in the cold plunge helps to release endorphins, and increase your heart rate. This stage is where you will receive the most benefit of the hot-cold-relax circuit.
- Nordic Waterfall
- Cold Showers
- Cold Plunge Baths
- Roll in the snow
The final stage is designed to allow the cardiovascular system to regulate itself. After spending time in hot and cold environments, it is recommended to rest the body to help stabilize blood flow and heart rate. This is a time for body & mind rest and relaxation.
- Muskoka Chairs
- Outdoor Fireplaces
