Many visits to the Canadian Rockies are action-packed, and for good reason with the abundance of outdoor adventure at our doorstep. But you should also make time to unwind with these relaxing spa treatments. Your tired muscles will thank you!
Spa Day in Canmore
Pamper your inner princess at spacious, upscale and boutiquey Rapunzel’s Salon & Spa. Settle in for hairstyling or a beauty treatment with natural Aveda products. Bring a friend to join you in the double massage room. After, relax in the cozy lounge area with mountain view.
Revive tired toes after a day of hiking. The Ultimate Ascent treatment at Willow Stream Spa at the Fairmont Banff Springs includes a foot massage, footbath and scrub. The soothing Lavender Dreams experience at The Spa at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise finishes with an oil-infused foot rub.
Extend Your Stay
The Rimrock Spa is a full service facility. After your massage or multi-treatment package, indulge further with a facial, wax or nail service. Work out in the fitness room, then relax in the indoor pool, steam room or whirlpool. Satisfy your appetite at the hotel’s Primrose or award-winning Eden restaurants.
Good complexions aren’t just for women. Treatments for men also cleanse, exfoliate and restore dry, weathered skin. Rimrock Spa’s 30-minute Micro-Zone Facial ($70) targets specific problem areas. The one-hour Refining Facial at Red Earth Spa (below; $145) includes a clarifying masque, plus hand, foot and scalp massage.
