Kananaskis Nordic Spa is located in a woodland setting, behind the Delta Lodge Kananaskis Hotel. To get to us via car, take the Kananaskis Trail/Highway 40 South Highway from the TransCanada Highway, turning right at the Kananaskis Village/Nakiska Road intersection. Travel 1.0 km, turn left and proceed up the hill to Kananaskis Village. Follow posted directions to the Delta Lodge at Kananaskis. Driving time from Calgary International Airport is approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes. On-site parking is available.
We are open 365 days a year, rain, snow and/or shine. Regular hours are 9am to 9pm.
The outdoor pools at KNS are either hot, warm, or cold – and you’ll want to cycle through them all to get the full hydrotherapy experience. KNS has two hot pools, two warm pools, and one cold pool.
- Hot Pool + Elements Pool: Celsius 35 – 40 ºC | Fahrenheit 95- 104 ºF
- Gathering Pool + Reflection Pool: Celsius 32 – 38 ºC | Fahrenheit 90 – 100 ºF
- Cold Plunge Pool: Celsius 5-10 ºC | Fahrenheit 41-50 ºF
At Kananaskis Nordic Spa, we honour a same-day return policy for our guests, but please note, this is based on availability at any time. Once guests have vacated the spa facility, they are welcomed to return that same day, providing we have the space available – and there is no waiting list at that time. All spa users must check-out at the reception desk and return their robe, slippers and locker key before every exit.
As a guest of the spa, you are welcome to stay with us as long as you like (during regular hours of course!). Wind down, reset and let your mind and body achieve complete relaxation. Kananaskis Nordic Spa supports independent rejuvenation on your own terms and getting the most out of the hydrotherapy experience — and we don’t think there should be a time limit on that. To be Nordic, is to be good to yourself, and to forget the notion of time for a while.
