Scandinave Spa, Whistler
Best for: Fresh air and serenity
Located a five-minute drive from Whistler Village, Scandinave Spa is popular with locals and visitors alike. While massages are available, many people come simply for the hydrotherapy bathing ritual. You can easily spend a few hours cycling through the outdoor property’s saunas and steam baths, including the open-air baths, bracing Nordic waterfall, and cold plunge pools.
In between, you can warm your toes next to a crackling outdoor fire, gaze at the mountains, and inhale the scent of the surrounding spruce and cedar forest. Silence is encouraged, so you can look forward to a serene, contemplative experience.
