  • Join us for a fun filled weekend in Ottawa during Winterlude, including an optional spa visit.

    Stay at the

    Residence Inn & Conference Centre

    , 150 Hazel St, Ottawa, ON K1S 5T8.  The rate is $99 per night for 2 rooms with a kitchenette and bathroom between them.  The place is not fancy, but it's well located and the price is right. *

    On Feb. 3, don’t miss the Winterlude Kick-Off party! Taking place at Confederation Park amongst the beautiful ice sculptures, you can enjoy live music and an exciting outdoor dance party! This event is FREE.

    And then there is The Nordic Spa, located at the entrance of Gatineau Park, only 10 minutes from downtown Ottawa, Nordik Spa-Nature is the largest spa in North America. Take the time to unwind and reenergize and take advantage of their unique installations: 7 outdoor baths, 8 unique saunas, infinity pool, restaurant and lounge. Treat yourself to a massage, a body treatment or our new Källa treatment, the second salt-water floating pool in the world!  I spent a day there last year, and I LOVED it!  The base price for admission to the entire facility is $61, + an additional charge for the Kalla pool.

    In addition to the Thermal experience you can add massage and body treatments, book early for these options.

    Grab your skates or rent a pair when you get here and glide along the Rideau Canal Skateway! This is the world’s largest naturally frozen ice skating rink. Most Winterlude activities are held on the weekends.

    Or spend the day in

    Gateneau Park

    , hiking, snowshoeing or skiing.

    Join the group on Saturday night for a great meal in Byward Market, at a restaurant yet to be decided.

    * I have reserved 7 suites under the name of The Kingston Social Club, you can write to me for details and a reservation number.  The suites are $100 a night for 2 rooms with double beds (bathroom and kitchenette) and there is a $10 fee for parking per night.

    Dear Joan,

    This sounds like a fine outing. I would like to join the group. Can you please send me the reservation reference number? The conference centre said I need that number to go on their booking website to pay for one of the suites you have on hold for the club.

    I have a good car and can take 3 folks comfortably or 4 a bit tighter with three in back seat of my Toyota Camry. I would like to leave Kingston on the Friday anytime after 2 pm and see some galleries as well. I would likely plan on leaving on the Sunday in the mid to late afternoon. I will let you know once I have a suite booked. I will have a room for anyone without one. Thanks,

      Thanks Lisa, we can share a suite. We can arrange cars as we get closer. I am also fine to drive. Take care,


  • Joan

    I will be going up early on Friday so that I can visit museums and art galleries.

      I had no problem getting through just now. Their central reservation number is: [masked]-9722. Then you have to choose which city. When I got Ottawa, I pressed 0 to reach reception.

    The spa is very popular, it is a day long event. In order to gain entrance, one has to line up early.

    November 28

  • Joan

    The only way people are going to get into the spa at all is to arrive early (8-8:30 am)
    So no, it's not possible to ski first.

    I just booked a massage for myself during our visit to the Nordic Spa. If you want a massage and/or special body treatment, then I recommend you book it now.

    I am definitely adding the Källa treatment to my day which is a large salt water pool filled with water saturated to 12% of Epsom salt where you float peacefully. I did this last year and LOVED it. The extraordinary experience of weightlessness in the quiet atmosphere of its underground location, was amazing.
