Mountain Mindfulness: Guide to Wanderlust 2019

Running from August 1-4 Wanderlust is one of our favourite events of the year. Use this guide to prepare for this year’s event and how to include our spa experience to make this year your best Wanderlust yet.

Featuring four full days focused on health, mindfulness and self-care, it’s no surprise that Wanderlust weekend is one of our favourite events of the year. Running from August 1-4 Whistler Village comes alive with mindful visitors and locals alike, all united by the common goal of seeking ways to care for their bodies and nourish their souls. The festival’s schedule of events offers a little something for everyone, including an exclusive event here at Scandinave Spa Whistler. To help you prepare for this year’s event we’ve put together a guide on how to include our spa experience to make this year your best Wanderlust yet.

IN THE VILLAGE

While our spa is located a short trip from Whistler Village, in the quiet west coast forests beside Lost Lake, for Wanderlust we’re also coming to you. In between your scheduled workshops, classes and talks be sure to stop by our pop-up info booth in Olympic Plaza. We’ll be there from August 1-4 to make it easy to come and learn more about our hydrotherapy experience, get discount coupons for bath access or massage and baths packages, even get a massage from one of our incredible therapists. Massages are first come, first served, and are $10 for a 10-minute massage. Just enough time to refresh before your next Wanderlust session.

END YOUR DAY THE RIGHT WAY

Your days at Wanderlust can be pretty action-packed. Often your daily schedule can be quickly filled with back to back sessions, hikes and delicious meals. Don’t worry about having to fit a visit to the Scandinave Spa into your daytime schedule, because we’re open daily until 9 pm. Stop by for a post-dinner decompress surrounded by sunset alpenglow. It’s the perfect way to rest and reflect after a day of mindfulness in the mountains.

MAKE YOUR PRACTICE PART OF OUR PROCESS

Our spa experience is based around hydrotherapy. If you’ve never experienced it before, it’s essentially cycling between hot, cold and relaxing experiences on our spa grounds. When relaxing you can drift away in one of our hammocks or fireside seats, or you can enjoy active relaxation in our lower solarium studio space. It’s fully equipped with mats and blocks, so you can stretch and move in between rounds of hydrotherapy.

EXCLUSIVE EVENT

Don’t forget to join us for our partner event with Wanderlust Whistler. On August 2 we’re opening our doors early for an exclusive yoga class in our hammock haven from 8 am-9 am. Perched above the spa with views overlooking the surrounding mountains and lush west coast forests, it’s an event you won’t want to miss. Event entry includes a 60-minute yoga class, exclusive post-class bath entry, towels and locker. $99+tax.  Get your tickets at wanderlust.com.

If you’re looking for even more ways to care for your body, we recommend adding a massage to your spa experience. Appointments with our onsite therapists fill up quickly, so we recommend booking in advance to secure your preferred time. Online booking now available here!
