Award-Winning Spa Destination
We are often asked what makes Scandinave Spa Blue Mountain, Ontario different from other spas across Canada. Firstly, we are situated on a 25 acre natural forest of Ontario birch, Canadian maple and pine trees with expansive views of the UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve Niagara Escarpment. Secondly, being located in Ontario’s premier four-season region, South Georgian Bay means Guests can have a unique spa experience any time of the year. In the warmer months, explore our self-guided, certified Forest Bathing Trail and wildlife, like turtles, wild turkeys and deer. In the Fall, Guests are treated to views of colourful tree foliage on the Escarpment and in the winter months, soak in the outdoor Baths while watching Blue Mountain Resort skiers carve down the slopes under the night lights.
Scandinave Spa Blue Mountain has signed the Sustainable Tourism 2030 Pledge, to demonstrate our commitment to improving sustainability performance of our business between now and 2030.
The UN World Tourism Organization defines sustainable tourism as “tourism that takes full account of its current and future economic, social and environmental impacts, addressing the needs of visitors, the industry, the environment and host communities.”
Each year, Scandinave Spa Blue Mountain commits to measuring and improving our sustainability performance in each of the following ways:
- Reduce emissions year over year with newer energy efficient equipment.
- Expand sustainable purchasing policy by supporting local entrepreneurs & Blue Mountains community.
- Improve water conservation practices.
Guests can experience the Scandinavian Baths hydrotherapy circuit in a variety of ways for health & wellness benefits.
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
