Scandinave Spa in Whistler
Escape your routine and come visit this traditional Scandinavia Baths Spa in a peaceful and natural environment. While they may not have accommodation on site, there are plenty of fantastic accommodation nearby!
The spa’s rustic installations nestled on the edge of the Lost Lake Park spruce and cedar forest will both relax and invigorate you and provide an escape from daily stress. We believe that silence is essential to the enjoyment of the Scandinavian baths experience. By embracing silence, one finds inner stillness, leading to complete relaxation.
The facilities offer many hot, cold and relaxation areas to work your way around. The first stage increases your body temperature which dilates blood vessels, reducing blood pressure and increasing blood flow to the skin and muscles. This helps cleanse the skin and release the body’s negative energy.
Follow this up with the 2nd step by jumping in one of the cold installations to close the pores, flush the toxins and release endorphins. This stage is where you will receive the most benefit of the hot-cold-relax circuit.
The final stage is designed to allow the cardiovascular system to regulate itself. Rest the body for 15 minutes to stabilize blood flow and hear rate! This is a time for the mind, body and soul to rest and relax. Contact Vacayou for passes to this amazing spa!
The Kingfisher Oceanside Resort & Spa – Courtenay on Vancouver Island
