Leave Iceland on your bucket list, but make way for one more destination where the water is hot and relaxation is inevitable. This week, photos of the up-and-coming geoLAGON in Petite-Rivière-Saint-François, Canada were released and to say that we’re excited is an understatement.

As we reported earlier this year, this incredible blue lagoon will be large, in charge and something to gawk over when it finally opens in the future.

Inspired by the pools of Grindavík, this 120,000-square-foot geothermal excursion will be built about 45-minutes from Quebec City and remain at a steady 38ºC all year round.

While construction isn’t set to begin until the spring of 2023, geoLAGON Canada could be one of the largest in the entire world – but somehow, it gets more impressive.

In addition to the open-air pools themselves, Canada’s Nordic-style spa will also have a reception pavilion, restaurants, and waterfront cottages – all of which will run off of self-sufficient energy described as a “showcase for geothermal and solar energy use.”

From panels and biomass energy to hydropower, the goal is to produce more energy than it actually consumes – which sounds unreal but is totally possible – according to the company behind the attraction.

“We believe that geoLAGON projects provide host communities with an opportunity to support and promote the use of renewables in the attractions industry, an energy-intensive sector where viable models of a greener, cleaner way forward are urgently needed,” they write on their website.

“We believe that geoLAGON projects provide host communities with an opportunity to support and promote the use of renewables in the attractions industry, an energy-intensive sector where viable models of a greener, cleaner way forward are urgently needed,” they write on their website. 

“We know of no other aquatic attraction in Canada with a goal as ambitious as ours: to use 100% renewable energy.”

Honestly, it sounds (and LOOKS) incredible, so we’ll be on the edge of our seats waiting for this one.

in the meantime, why not soak in one of Canada’s other toasty spots? You’re looking a little tense.

Enjoy and happy chilling.
