Quebec, Canada, is known for its natural beauty, charming cities, incredible culinary scene, and rich cultural heritage, making it an ideal destination for those seeking a rejuvenating spa experience.

Luckily, it is also known for its luxurious spas that offer unique and innovative experiences to help visitors relax and rejuvenate (Quebec is home to over 125 spas, and most are open year-round).

With its countless lakes and rivers, Quebec is the perfect spot for spa getaways featuring water-based treatments. Relax in the city, on the river’s edge, or even in the heart of the forest. What could be better than a fabulous massage with Canada’s famous maple syrup?

Here are some unique spas in Quebec for your next wellness vacation.

Plan Your Visit

  1. Transportation: Quebec is a large province! So, you may need flights as well as ground transportation (taxi, car rental, train) depending on where you travel from and to. Check with the spa, the Quebec tourist board, and/or your travel advisor for details on getting here and around.
  2. Accommodations: Most spas on our list do not have their own accommodations, so you’ll need to book in at a hotel, resort, or other vacation rental option. Many of these and other spas have special packages or rates with local accommodations, so be sure to ask and take advantage!
  3. What to bring: Some spas offer robes, towels, lockers, slippers, and such; others offer some or none of these. Check with the spa to ensure you bring (or purchase) anything needed, such as a water bottle. You’ll definitely need your swimsuit! Quebec experiences four distinct seasons, and winters are cold, so be prepared with appropriate clothing if you visit during that time. Summers are generally mild and pleasant.
  4. Where to eat: Many spas offer incredible on-site restaurants or dining options. When not spa-ing, be sure to take in the incredible culinary options Quebec offers. C’est magnifique! 
  5. Language: French is the official language of Quebec, though many tourist destinations, including spas, have staff fluent in both French and English. That said, learning some basic French phrases can enhance your experience and show respect for the local culture.
