At Destination Direct, we realize the need to relax, to unplug and to think, if only for a few hours. That’s why we have scheduled a treat for our Hosted Buyers, with a short trip to Nordik Spa-Nature in Chelsea, QC, in the Gatineau Hills just 10 minutes outside Ottawa.

Nordik Spa-Nature is everything but an ordinary spa. Based on the thermal bath concept typical of Scandinavia, it is a sprawling village dedicated to relaxation, with stone paths leading to outdoor pools (both hot and cold), and timber lodges with saunas (with varying temperatures), steam rooms (some with scented oils), relaxation areas (most with fireplaces) and even two restaurants.

Visitors from outside the Capital may be surprised to know that this wonderful spa operates year-round – indeed the best time to visit may be in winter when spa-goers lounge in hot pools sporting tuques, steam rising from everyone as they saunter to their massage appointment!

Nordik Spa-Nature is about business too and many organizations have used the venue for team building, strategic planning and even board meetings. “We understand the meetings business and we are always happy to assist with the organization of spousal or delegate programs, or for an extraordinary social yet relaxing experience after a busy schedule,’’ says Marianne Trotier, Account Executive at Nordik Spa-Nature.
