If you are in Ottawa in winter and can afford a full day for pleasure you must plan and visit the Nordik Spa-Nature in Chelsea. Beware that you should go there in the morning preferably around 9:30 and plan for staying there until the very evening like 9 or 10 pm or until they are closed at 11 pm. The location is easy to get to by car: just 15 minutes driving from Ottawa downtown across the river. For those who are not familiar they offer what they call "thermal experience" that includes combination of saunas, baths, whirlpools and pools in a very relaxing environment. Most of the pools and whirlpools are outdoors and in winter they offer a great experience of hot and cold water treatments accompanied by complete relaxation but I guess would also be enjoyable during summer may be with less contrast. I went there on a Valentine's day and so far it's been one of the best experiences and I will go there again for sure.
