Revel in the ‘Island Way of Life’ at a New Nordic Spa, Yoga and Wellness Festival, and more on Prince Edward Island, Canada.
With 700 miles of tranquil beaches and Island-wide hiking, biking, and walking trails, Prince Edward Island is an open-air playground for travelers to restore mind, body, and soul. This year, visitors to PEI can revel in the “island way of life” with new and authentic wellness experiences.
From a new Nordic Spa and kaYOGA, to paddleboarding with beach goats, here are a few ways for travelers to relax and rejuvenate in Canada’s smallest province.
Mysa Nordic Spa & Resort (NEW)
Prince Edward Island’s newest and only Nordic Spa, the Mysa Nordic Spa & Resort is the ultimate wellness retreat. Nestled on the banks of St. Peters Bay, this calming space opened in December 2022 and features newly renovated rustic cottages with water views and propane fireplaces, perfect for cozying up after a day at the spa. The resort also offers an array of spa services, including thermal baths, essential oil steam rooms, a Finnish sauna, meditation sessions, and more. Inspired by ancient Scandinavian rituals, the Mysa Spa’s Thermal Experience alternates hot, cold, and rest to achieve a deep state of relaxation within the body and mind.
Nature Space Resort & Retreat Centre
A place to reconnect with nature, the Nature Space Resort & Retreat Centre is a four-season resort in Eastern Prince Edward Island, offering four authentic Mongolian Yurts. Each Yurt is outfitted with a queen bed, day bed with trundle, woodstove, and a private deck with a personal hot tub. The resort offers an array of wellness-based activities, including private and group yoga, mindfulness classes, wellness retreats, as well as sunset kaYOGA, a three-hour kayak trip that includes one hour of yoga on a secluded beach.
Island Tides Yoga and Wellness Festival
