Four Refuges to Connect with the Rhythm of Winter

December 9th, 2020 by Strøm Spa Nordique

STRØM NORDIC SPA — Winter lives in the heart of our dreams, somewhere between slowness and contemplation. When nature falls asleep, humans gather in a space where silence is king. Inside each Strøm spa, the cold season unfolds and is experienced in all the best that tranquility has to offer. Honouring the changing of the seasons by offering facilities inspired by holistic Nordic and Scandinavian life, our establishments have been designed to invite the outside inside. Canvases to become one with winter. An invitation to rethink our relationship with time and explore the art of slow living. Revisit our four refuges in winter mode.

Strøm Nordic Spa Old Quebec: A Spectacle of Ice

CAP DIAMANT

Cap Diamant is the edge of the Promontory of Quebec and the cliff on which the Citadel of Quebec is located. Situated between Cap Diamant and the St. Lawrence River, Strøm Nordic Spa Old Quebec lets you observe the cliff under its many attractions. As we move from autumn to winter, the cape is gradually covered with snow offering its spectacle of colours.

THE ST. LAWRENCE RIVER

A January morning. As the spa opens, silence is king. The sun rises on the other side of the river. The glaciers that meet and shatter echo. The St. Lawrence River reveals its Nordic charms, leaving us blissful and contemplative.

THE INFINITY POOL

In the infinity pool, the contrast between the warmth of the water and the surrounding cold can be observed and felt. The winter wind sweeps the steam above the water. The panorama offers a view of the glaciers in the river. The cold season has never been so vibrant.

STRØM RIVER

Strøm River is our most popular winter installation. The journey in the water starts in the warmth, indoors, then the circuit continues outside, meeting the winter breeze. A gentle immersion for those who fear the extreme cold.

ALL THE FACILITIES TO BE DISCOVERED

Outdoor whirlpools • Temperate and ice baths • Floating pool with Epsom salts • Infinity pool • Finnish saunas • Eucalyptus and essential oil steam baths • Thermal and Nordic waterfalls • Indoor and outdoor relaxation areas with fireplaces • Nord Restaurant • Terraces • And more

Strøm Nordic Spa Mont-Saint-Hilaire: A View of the Snowy Mountain

GAULT NATURE RESERVE

The Montérégie spa offers an experience in harmony with nature that changes with the seasons. The muse of Strøm Nordic Spa Mont-Saint-Hilaire is undoubtedly the Gault Nature Reserve, dominated by a dense forest, including some trees that are centuries old: the 500-year-old cedars populating the Dieppe cliffs. With its dramatic cliffs, its deep crevasses, and the myths and legends that have been told about it since its discovery, the mountain fascinates and intrigues. In the winter, its summit is covered with snow, offering a unique view of a rich and abundant forest.

THE SALT EXFOLIATION RITUAL

As winter arrives, the epidermis undergoes its share of transformations. To combat the dehydration of the skin, the Mont-Saint-Hilaire spa has added a salt exfoliation station to its circuit, which stimulates the senses while giving the epidermis back its radiance, softness, and vitality. The ritual begins in the sauna or steam bath, where you relax for about ten minutes. Then you are led to the exfoliation area for a salt scrub, skin massage, and rinse. A wonderful addition to the traditional thermal circuit.

THE PANORAMIC ROOM

The panoramic room has been designed to highlight the wild and abundant natural surroundings. From autumn to winter, you can watch as the mountain is gradually covered with snow. When the winter arrives and the wind blows the snow onto the majestic firs, the space with its sleek lines makes us feel like we are in the heart of the storm while staying warm. A unique perspective! In this place where flora has always been important, the large windows reinforce its charms.

THE REVISITED YURT

Our revisited yurts evoking the nomadic spirit transport us to a world where the tradition of our land and noble materials like wood have a place of honour. The subdued atmosphere that prevails there pays tribute to the unique character of the cold season. Wrap yourself up in a warm blanket there between thermal circuits to rediscover the

charm of the Quebec winter.

ALL THE FACILITIES TO BE DISCOVERED

Outdoor whirlpools • Temperate and ice baths • Swimming pool • Finnish saunas • Eucalyptus and essential oil steam baths • Thermal and Nordic waterfalls • Indoor and outdoor relaxation areas with fireplaces • Nord Restaurant • Skärgården summer kitchen • Terrace • And more

Strøm Nordic Spa Sherbrooke: On the Shores of the Frosty Lake

LE LAC DES NATIONS

Lac des Nations is an extension of the Magog River located in downtown Sherbrooke. Strøm Nordic Spa Sherbrooke’s unique vantage point on the body of water offers an enchanting spectacle during the golden hour, when the snow shimmers on the snow- covered lake. Later, once the sun has almost disappeared, the vastness of the sky reveals its flamboyant colours. This scene worthy of a winter fairy tale can be observed from the hot tub or from the outdoor fireplace area, wrapped in a warm fleece blanket.

THE BLACK ROOM

There is something fascinating about the darkness of winter. And the Nat (“night”) relaxation room at Strøm Nordic Spa Sherbrooke harmonizes brilliantly with it. Unveiling a starry sky, it lets you travel through time, whether in the morning or in the evening. An ode to darkness and—above all—a meditative and restorative space where silence reigns. For complete relaxation, stretch out on the heated black granite beds for about twenty minutes and unwind.

THE DRØM SUSPENDED CHAIR SPACE

This contemplative space invites you to reconnect with the quiet force of the setting. In chairs that seem suspended in space, a feeling of weightlessness lets you relax both body and mind. It’s the perfect place to allow yourself a moment of tranquility and connect with the infinitely slower rhythm of winter.

THE FIKA CAFÉ

A creative culinary space, the Fika Café offers boreal-inspired cuisine highlighting nordicity in all its forms. Because here, everything starts from the land and from privileged contact with nature. The Fika Café promotes local products and flavours. To be discovered: an ephemeral menu that evolves with the cold season.

ALL THE FACILITIES TO BE DISCOVERED

Outdoor whirlpools • Temperate and ice baths • Finnish saunas • Eucalyptus and essential oil steam baths • Thermal and Nordic waterfalls • Indoor and outdoor relaxation areas with fireplaces • Fika Café • Terraces • Dock • Beach • And more

Strøm Nordic Spa Nuns’ Island: The Shelter from the Snow

LAC DES BATTURES

Lac des Battures is an extension of an enormous wetland on the Island of Montreal that became a place of worship for the birds of the St. Lawrence River corridor. A jewel of biodiversity just a few minutes from the city centre. When the winter temperature sets in, the landscape is covered with snow, transforming the body of water into a truly magical refuge.

THE LARGE PANORAMIC SAUNA

An ode to the Scandinavian ritual. To revive the ancestral traditions of our European neighbours, the large panoramic sauna is the perfect facility. In the winter, the strength of the fire contrasts with the whiteness of the landscape, offering a majestic panoramic view of the lake of ice and frost.

THE RØD RELAXATION ROOM

In the winter, the Rød relaxation room also offers its panoramic view of Lac des Battures. The winter spectacle combines with the benefits of relaxing on the infrared beds. An experience focused on relieving tensions and overall relaxation: soothing muscle and joint tensions, reducing stress, lowering blood pressure, stimulating the immune system, firming the skin, improving blood circulation, eliminating toxins…its benefits are multiple.

MASSAGES ON PILOTIS

Combining the benefits of nature and massage therapy, massages on pilotis let you extend the relaxation experience outdoors. During the cold season, the heated rooms become veritable cocoons where being outside in the cold weather has never been so pleasant.

ALL THE FACILITIES TO BE DISCOVERED

Outdoor whirlpools • Temperate and ice baths • Finnish saunas • Eucalyptus and essential oil steam baths • Thermal and Nordic waterfalls • Indoor and outdoor relaxation areas with fireplaces • Nord Restaurant • Terrace • Docks • Pilotis • And more
