How to Enjoy Winter to the Fullest
In Manitoba, winter can span across six months of the year. For a season that takes up nearly half of our lives, it makes sense to try and find ways to enjoy it to the fullest – or at the very least make our peace with it! If you’re looking to lift your spirits and find joy in the winter season, we’re here to help. Read on for inspiration on how to make the most of the cold weather at the spa!
Embracing the cold doesn’t mean you need to go straight for a polar dip. (Although you can if you want – we have pools for that too!) May we suggest starting out slowly with a heated hammock? It’s your favourite summer pastime, reinvented for winter. Climb in and inhale deeply; breathe in the fresh air and feel the juxtaposition between the chilly air on your face and the warm hug of the hammock. You may even relax enough to be lulled to sleep by the gentle swaying back and forth – your first outdoor winter nap!
A Meal with a View
If you’re not quite ready to step outside, start by taking in the beauty of the winter landscape from our Restö or Lounge. Savour a delicious meal by the crackling fireplace and gaze out onto the evergreen trees softly blanketed in snow. At night, there’s a special kind of magic to this experience, as the trees across the site are lit with warm, white lights to gently illuminate the sparkling snow. It might even make for a romantic date night with the one you love.
Is there any better way to enjoy winter than sitting in a hot tub during a snowfall? We don’t think so. It’s the perfect balance between indulging in the desire to feel cozy and warm while also enjoying the fresh air and relaxing in harmony with nature. Give into your inner child and catch a few snowflakes on your tongue while you’re at it! Tapping into the childlike wonder of winter is the best way to find joy and delight in the season.
Get into the Festive Spirit
Everything’s better when you’re spending time with people you care about, even the cold weather. Gather your family and friends to reconnect around the outdoor fireplace in Flam. Cuddled up in cozy blankets by the heat of the fire, you can lounge on our Adirondack chairs, roast marshmallows, and make s’mores! Take advantage of our Festive Spirit period at the spa, from December 26 to January 5, where our guests will be permitted to talk across the entire site. Enjoy the best part of winter – the holiday season – together.
