How to Access

CURRENTLY CLOSED

Please note that as per the current guidelines, the pools, saunas, steam rooms, bistro, lounge area and locker rooms remain closed. Hydrotherapy access reservations through to May 31 have been cancelled. 

Due to the current regulations set by the Government of Alberta, we are not accepting any new bookings for Hydrotherapy Access. Bookings will reopen when new regulations allow us to fully reopen our sessions. Until then, we appreciate your patience and understanding and look forward to welcoming you back to our mountain oasis.

Massages continue to be available to enjoy some much needed rest and relaxation.

Due to current government regulations we’ve had to reduce our hours, as a result all massages through to May 31 are being cancelled. Along with our reduced hours of operation we ask that you visit our Massage page to submit a new request form. Thank you for your patience and understanding with our transition.

Kananaskis Nordic Spa is the go-to destination to find refuge from the demands of the modern world, just a short drive from Calgary.

Enjoy the rejuvenating effects of hydrotherapy as you move through hot, warm cold pools. Take a moment to rest in a hammock or Adirondack chair by the fire and repeat the cycle.

The benefits of hydrotherapy are invigorating. It is said to energize and rest the body, improve blood circulation as well as activate the lymphatic system to support the body’s natural detoxification process. Promoting the release of endorphins, the hydrotherapy cycle leaves you with an undeniable sense of well-being.
