The Experience

Ready. Set.

Hit pause on your busy life and relax into this beneficial experience for body and mind. Centred around the age-old Finnish tradition of sauna, our Nordic circuit consists of moving between areas of hot, cold, and rest to offer temperature contrasts that boost immunity, improve mood, and jump-start circulation. Bathing suit on, cell phone off, relaxation assured.

Take a cold water shower to invigorate

The Circuit

Leisurely move through our Nordic circuit on your own time, at your own pace. Try out the Finnish sauna, steam room, cold plunge pool, salt lounge, outdoor patios, rinse station, Nordic bucket shower, and lounge. Alternate between hot and cold, then relax and repeat the circuit again.

Our Finnish-style, traditional, high-performing basswood sauna delivers dry heat up to 90°C. Ladle a splash of water on the rocks to bring up the humidity. Double stoves keep the room hot, low lights keep the mood relaxed.


Cold plunge pool at Ritual Nordic Spa

Cold Plunge

Step into our 42” deep cold pool for a full-body chillout. Try to submerge part (or all) of your body for a minute or more. Cool your core temperature, breathe through the icy amazingness and feel endorphins release for a physical reboot. We keep it ice-water chilly at 9°C.

Relax in the Ritual Nordic Spa Salt Lounge

Salt Lounge

Bask in the glow of Himalayan salt blocks, known for anti-inflammatory properties and properties that help fight infection. This subtly warm room offers a peaceful recovery moment between cold and hot cycles of circuit. Put your feet up, close your eyes and breathe.


Private Suites

If you’re craving a quieter sauna escape, book one of our amazing sauna suites.  These private suites offer a chance to relax and sauna by yourself, as a couple, or with up to 4 friends.

Get your glow on in a private infrared sauna. Our Birch Suite has its own infrared heat sauna plus a shower for a relaxed rinse-off and an unhurried experience. Infrared offers a less intense heat and is known for eliminating toxins, improving circulation, and aiding in weight loss. Bookable for 1- 2 people. 1 hour booking.


A private alpine oasis. If you love traditional sauna, welcome to the sauna and cold plunge combo of your dreams. Our cedar suite features a large, four-person, two-bench sauna, with a separate cedar soaking tub right beside. Move from hot to cold as often as you like, then relax on the nearby patio. Go nude if you like! Bathing suits optional in the suite. Bookable for 1-4 people. 2 hour booking.



Massage helps your body recover after a strenuous day — whether you’ve been paddling the ocean, hiking the hills, or hunched over your computer. We follow a recovery-focused philosophy: our Registered Massage Therapists and Spa Practitioners are professionally trained to get your body feeling great. RITUAL RMT Massage will focus on specific issues, such as healing an ailment or muscle recovery, whereas Swedish Massage promotes a sense of relaxation to help you unwind and de-stress.

Add on a visit to the Nordic circuit before your massage when booking for the ultimate Ritual experience (add-on one hour for $35).
