This newer spa in Quebec City also has one of the best locations, just a five minute drive from the city centre with a perch along the Saint Lawerence River. Strom Spa is based around the thermotherapy ritual, where guests alternate between hot, cold and relaxation areas like Nordic baths, eucalyptus steams, Finnish saunas and waterfalls.

There are also tranquil pools, including an indoor/outdoor one, an infinity pool overlooking the river, and the Laga floatation bath with a salt content so high it mimics the Dead Sea

Get toasty in front of one of the roaring fireplaces, chill out while hanging in a hammock inside one of Sibéria’s yurts, or grab a good book and curl up in the igloo (no need to be alarmed—it’s heated!).

Le Monastère des Augustines

The Quebec City spa resort Le Monastère des Augustines grabs a spot on the list of unique spas thanks to its location in the Hôtel-Dieu de Québec monastery. Located in the historic heart of the city, the monastery just so happens to be one of the first hospitals that was built in North America north of Mexico. It has since been converted into a beautifully appointed hotel, and the entire centre is now a haven for serenity and wellness.
