Winter is in full swing and it has us feeling a little tense. The cold air isn’t good for the face, the heavy jacket isn’t great for our shoulders, and the lack of sun isn’t good for our mood. We could definitely use some R&R to make up for last week’s cold weather, and you could too! Here are 5 must-hit spas in Alberta. We all deserve a little “us” time.

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 further 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.

When: Monday – Sunday
Where: 1 Centennial Dr, Kananaskis
Time: 9 AM – 9 PM
Cost: Varies by service

Solara Resort & Spa

Guide: 5 Must-Hit Spa Escapes In Alberta

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!

Time: Mon-Friday 6 AM – 8 PM, Sat-Sun 7 AM – 7 PM
