Hydrotherapy pool at Tyst Tradgard

Friends sharing a hydrotherapy pool at Tyst Tradgard.

Tyst Tradgard is a new style of Scandinavian spa just 30 minutes from downtown Quebec City that combines hydrotherapy treatments and massage into an exquisite unforgettable spa experience.

The Duchesnay Resort sits on a hilltop overlooking the famed Ice Hotel (Hotel de Glace), but tucked away in the hillside below the chalet is Tyst Tradgard, a Scandinavian-style spa at the resort offering an experience you'll not soon forget. Beautiful in the rolling green hills of summer or amid the changing colors of the fall foliage, the winter experience is one of the most unique you'll find anywhere.

The spa treatment rooms themselves are unforgettable, each with a themed setting:

  • Egyptian temple
  • African temple
  • Prehistoric cave
  • Temple of light

The outside spa stations, however, are the crowning glory that make the experience at Tyst Tradgard so unique when it's experienced in Canada's sub-zero winter temps. With the deep snow surrounding the steaming water, there's no better way to relax. The concept of the Scandinavian spa guides you through two to four private hydrotherapy stations of half an hour each. With your spouse, a small group of friends, or alone, you always enjoy your sessions without strangers. Top off the hydrotherapy session with the icy cold plunge pool, a dip in the snow bank, or a run under the cold waterfall, followed by a session in the dry sauna, and all of your senses will be alive and your body cleansed.

Reservations are required and now is the time to start planning your trip for those chilly fall days or the cold winter months when the snow adds that extra air of mystery to the baths of Tyst Tradgard.
