Kananaskis Nordic Spa

We’ve got two words to describe the Nordic Spa: alpine sanctuary. Sounds pretty good, eh? They’re all about “facing the elements” here, but this experience couldn’t be farther from roughing it. From the massage services, to the Eucalyptus steam cabin, to the state-of-the-art saunas, this place has the whole relaxation game down pat.

Where: 1 Centennial Dr, Kananaskis
When: Monday – Sunday, 9 AM – 9 PM
Cost: $70 Daily Rate

My Oasis Spa Calgary

Solara Resort & Spa

The award-winning Solara Resort is a great place to treat yo’ self. It’s luxurious, warm, and nestled right in the mountains, so there’s really no way you could have a bad time. We recommend their cupping treatment to release tension (and for some really B.A. bruises), or the ReVersive Anti-Aging Facial if you want to look extra fresh!

When: Monday – Sunday, 6 AM – 8 PM Mon-Fri; 7 AM – 7 PM Sat-Sun
Cost: $50 Wellness Day Pass
