Following the tenets of nordic tradition, the highly-rated Siberia Station Spa is located adjust outside of Quebec City in Canada. An expansive piece of property, there are private spaces that allow you to feel alone with yourself. With limited capacity and certain areas being silent or whisper-only zones, guests will be able to unwind in peace.
Founded in 2005 by Julie Panneton and Michel Carrier, the Siberia Station Spa is a popular destination supported by a team of over 100 employees. Hoping to give back to the community as part of its mission, the spa often asks for suggestions for new causes they should support as part of their ongoing contribution efforts.
Changing with the seasons, the Siberia Station Spa is known for its flowers in the spring and fire pits during the fall. Meanwhile, during the winter, the breathtaking pristine snow doesn’t hinder services as nearly all areas are connected by heated pathways.
Siberia Station Spa Services
Boasting a range of services and treatments to help you relax, the Siberia Station Spa follows a Scandanavian concept of rotating different heats with relaxation. This means that services at the spa are broken into hot, cold, and rest categories as well as including normal spa services like massage therapy.
Several hot options await you to start up your hot-cold-rest circuit.
- Hot baths – There are eight hot baths to soak in on the property, all of which are private and amidst inspirational natural landscapes. You’ll find relaxation and peace against the sound of a soft breeze, chirping birds, and running water.
- Steam baths – The high humidity of steam baths eases tension and opens the pores. The addition of eucalyptus essential oil creates an environment perfect for invigorating the respiratory system.
- Dry sauna – At the opposite end of the humidity spectrum as steam baths, dry saunas promote blood circulation, de-stressing, and a good sweat.
- Infrared therapy – Infrared therapy is designed to target and reduce inflammation, chronic pain, and fatigue and has many other positive benefits.
After a hot soak, head to one of the cooler pools to bring your temperature back down. On-site, there are three cold-water baths with waterfalls that are ideal for activating your nervous system and renewing vitality. Moreover, you can take a dip in the Jaume River, which has varying temperatures depending on the time of year.
With 50 massage therapists on staff, there’s no shortage of expertise. With numerous techniques available, some of the most popular massage options include the Californian, Amma or “acupuncture without needles”, Swedish, momentum, lomi-atsu, sports, Thai, lomi-lomi, and deep tissue.
Additionally, those in unique life stages can benefit from prenatal massages or heart-to-heart for anyone fighting cancer. Spa entry and pool access can be purchased for the day or evening only. Massage packages that include spa entry are also available. Sunday mornings, special occasions, and school breaks are set aside specifically encouraged for children and their parents.
Take a pause in your day and rest in one of the many options designed for recovery.
- The ÜPÉ Pavilion – The Upe Pavilion allows you to take advantage of the sounds of the river while being warmed in by a fire in a comfortable chair. Take in some fresh air and nature.
- Siberian Yurt – Kick back in a hammock inside a yurt next to a roaring fire to find peace. The gentle sway of the swings will lull you to sleep.
- The Lodge – An A-frame lodge provides the coziness of a wooden cabin with a full wall of windows looking deep into the forest. Soft chairs provide support as you relax.
Heated terraces, outdoor fireplaces, and other restful transition areas with hammocks and Adirondack chairs, and blankets are scattered throughout the property. Additionally, the Viva room is equipped with books and magazines to relax into another world.
If you find yourself needing to recharge between soaks, head to the Sibéria Café for a healthy, gourmet meal. Ranging from breakfast sandwiches and chai lattes to charcuterie plates and grilled cheeses, you won’t walk away hungry. Set in a former chapel surrounded by forests, enjoy breakfast, lunch, and dinner inside a beautiful piece of history.
