The schedule opens four months in advance, to the day. Depending on time of year, availability is best 2-3 months in advance for weekends and holidays.


Why is it so important to be quiet while visiting Scandinave Spa?

Scandinave Spa Blue Mountain is a place for our guests to come and experience the peace and quiet. While in the heart of nature, our guests have a chance to enjoy some me-time and disconnect from the stress and noise of everyday life. We also ask visitors to ensure that they are quiet during their visit, in order to respect the other guests.

For more information on the importance of quiet at Scandinave Spa, please visit our Blog post.

What should I bring?

Proper bathing suit attire is mandatory. A plastic or stainless steel water bottle, as well as sandals or flip-flops are recommended. These items can also be purchased at our boutique.

Robes are available for rent or purchase, or guests are welcome to bring their own. Upon check-in, all massage guests receive a robe rental for the duration of their visit.

Each guest receives two towels, a locker and a key. Water fountains are available on site.

Since your facilities are outdoors, what happens in rain or poor weather?

The Scandinavian Baths are open year-round, rain, shine or snow. Our facilities are designed so that you can enjoy the hydrotherapy experience regardless of the weather. In the case of lightning during a thunderstorm, the Baths may close temporarily. On days where there are extreme weather warnings, please call ahead of your visit, or check our twitter page for more information and updates: www.twitter.com/scandinaveblue

Can we eat on site?

Scandinave Spa does have a bistro on-site. We offer a daily selection of soups, salads, sandwiches, cookies, fruit juices, tea and coffee. Please note that outside food cannot be brought into the spa activity and guests do not have in & out privileges.

Are alcoholic drinks allowed?

We advise strongly against alcohol consumption during a hydrotherapy experience, but a guest can enjoy beer or wine from the Spa Bistro after they are done. Management reserves the right to prohibit access to clients who appear to be under the influence of alcohol or other drugs.

Are children allowed on site?

Access to the spa is reserved for people 19 and over. Guests may be asked to provide identification upon check-in.

Do you accept US dollars and US third party gift cards?

We accept US dollars for payment and provide a fair exchange rate. This rate may not be the same as bank rates. We can redeem US dollar third party gift cards (i.e. SpaFinder, Way Spa etc). Any remaining balance will be transferred to a Scandinave Spa Blue Mountain gift card in Canadian dollars.

I am pregnant. Can I have a massage anyway? Is it possible to experience the Baths?

All our Registered Massage Therapists are trained to give massages that are safe for pregnant women. Please mention whether a guest is pregnant when reserving a massage appointment.

The Scandinavian Baths are not recommended for pregnant women because the temperature changes could lead to complications. Please consult your health care provider.

Can I receive care if I am under medication or suffering from certain health problems?

We recommend that you discuss any issues with your health professional. If you are taking medication or have particular health problems (such as cancer), therapeutic treatments are sometimes best to avoid. A note from your doctor may be requested by your massage therapist. All guests are asked to fill out a health form which asks specific questions about one’s health. The Massage Therapist will review this form with you before your treatment.

Are the facilities accessible to guests with disabilities?

The Scandinavian Baths & massage pavilion are accessible to people with disabilities. We also have a policy for guests that require a support person while they are here. Please call (705) 443-8484 for more information.

What clothing do I wear during a massage?

Our therapist team is professional and respectful. Our massage therapists are trained to use sheets to keep you covered while being massaged & to respect your privacy. Only the area being massaged is uncovered. It is more comfortable to receive a massage when no clothing is worn, but we respect the choice of our clients who prefer to keep clothes on.

Do you accept groups? Do you have special group rates?

Scandinave Spa offers advantageous rates for Baths access to groups of 12 or more people, Monday-Friday. Depending on availability, up to 16 people may receive massages at the same time. For more information, please fill out our Group Form online, or contact Lena, our Group Coordinator at 877-988-8484 ext 219 or lenag@scandinaveblue.com. Please note that effective November 1st, 2017, we are unable to accept WaySpa or SpaFinder gift cards for payment.

Do you provide lodging packages?
