Well, winter’s here, and we’ve got plenty to keep us busy. The holiday season has us feeling a little tense, so we definitely need some R&R. Keep reading for all the must-hit spots in ON for maximum rejuvenation!

Scandinave Spa

Scandinavians might’ve been Vikings, but they definitely knew how to unwind. Case in point: their tradition of hydrotherapy. At Scandinave, they’re committed to the ‘hot-cold-relax’ system, which is proven to release endorphins (AKA: make you feel amazing). Plus, the Blue Mountain backdrop isn’t too hard on the eyes, either.

Where: 152 Grey County Rd 21, The Blue Mountains
When: Monday – Saturday, 9 AM – 9 PM
Cost: $60 Bath Access

The Briars

If you’re looking to explore Lake Simcoe, The Briars is a great option to experience whirlpools, body wraps, holistic treatments, and more. It’s high quality and relatively easy on the wallet (depending how boujee you get), so head here for some feel-good vibes without the guilt-inducing prices.

Where: 55 Hedge Road, Jacksons Point
When: Monday – Sunday, 10 AM – 6 PM
Cost: Varies By Service

Grail Springs

Located 2.5 hours from Toronto, Grail Springs is a great place to treat yo’ self. It’s luxurious and conveniently located alongside an alkaline spring-fed lake, so there’s really no way you could have a bad time. We recommend their Craniosacral Therapy to release tension, or their Mangosteen Radiance Booster facial if you want to look extra fresh!

Where: 2004 Bay Lake Rd, Bancroft
When: Monday – Sunday, 8 AM – 9 PM
Cost: Varies By Service

The Millcroft

Countryside views + hot spring pools? Sounds like the perfect opportunity for some off-the-grid R&R. The Millcroft is surrounded by quaint villages with gorgeous views of the rolling hills of Caledon… but if that’s not already enticing enough, this place’s hydrotherapy methods are said to increase circulation, relieve arthritic pain, and cleanse the body of negative energy.

Where: 55 John St, Alton
When: Monday – Sunday, 8 AM – 9 PM
Cost: Varies By Service

Elmwood Spa
