Cold plunge lovers, this one’s for you. The Fairmont Pacific Rim is launching a brand-new Nordic spa experience, which consists of hot and cold plunges, heated relaxation lounges, guided yoga classes, and much more. So let’s dive right in!

The outdoor thermal spa launches on November 15th, now open daily from 8 am to 8 pm. The experience promises to be transformative and healing, offering unparalleled full-body rejuvenation and restoration, according to the spa’s website.

The Nordic Spa Experience

Located on the hotel’s sixth-floor pool deck, The Nordic Spa invites guests to submerge themselves in one of two state-of-the-art cold plunge tubs, followed by a warm “plunge” in the therapeutic cedar plank sauna.

After visitors indulge in the cycle, they are welcome to relax in heated rest areas with sofa lounges, surrounded by fire pits and patio heaters.

Whether you’re a pro or looking to try out your first Nordic spa experience, there are numerous reasons to take the proverbial and literal plunge.

“Combining exposure to hot and cold environments in a circuit has numerous benefits to your body and overall well-being,” says Fairmont Pacific Rim’s Spa Director, Kim Carmichael. “A few key benefits include stress reduction, detoxification, muscle and joint pain relief, improved circulation, skin health, enhanced immune system and improved sleep.”
