Thermea by Nordik Spa-Nature
It’s like stepping into a little slice of Scandinavia when you step into the icy waters and steaming saunas at Thermea by Nordik Spa-Nature. This spa focuses on the four elements and their healing properties, and you can feel the power of nature at this winter oasis.
The spa is built into the side of a hill with the entrance at ground level and its outdoor pools nestled underneath towering fir trees. The thermal circuit is the star attraction, a ritual that involves alternating hot and cold temperature changes that shocks your circulation. After warming up in a steam bath or sauna, you plunge into the cold pool or stand under a waterfall, then rest and recover. This is a centuries-old European technique and it’s proven to be very effective.
Another highlight of the spa is the Aufguss ritual, where you immerse yourself in a hot tub while a Turkish-style scrub is applied to your entire body. Then, you’re rinsed off with a sand-infused eucalyptus spray.
For something a bit more luxurious, head to the Ten Spa on the 10th floor of The Fort Garry Hotel, one of our top picks for hotels in Winnipeg. The spa is known for its extensive list of beauty and wellness treatments, and is especially acclaimed for its facials. Their “illuminating” facial addresses issues such as hyper-pigmentation, scarring, and uneven skin tone. Their anti-aging and hydrating facials are also popular with customers.
The spa is open year-round, and is a must for those looking to relax and rejuvenate in the heart of downtown Winnipeg. The spa has a hamam, saunas, and a treatment menu that includes facials, body treatments, foot care, and lash and brow services. They also offer a number of package deals and even offer a loyalty card so you can save on your next visit. There are also many great spa packages available for couples and groups!
