Within Peterborough & the Kawarthas are several resorts whose luxurious spa treatments are part of their guest experience. But we like to think of our region as a spa in itself. After all, the word “spa” is derived from the Latin solus par aqua, which means “healing by water.”

And with 134 lakes at your disposal, Peterborough & the Kawarthas can’t help but soothe the soul.

Think of the four elements of the spa. Every one of them is found in abundance here:

  • Physical: Keep active. With miles and miles of walking and cycling trails, great fitness clubs and lots of places to paddle, Peterborough & the Kawarthas is a natural for anyone seeking physical fitness.
  • Psychological: “Getting away from it all” is a big part of the spa philosophy and where better to do that than in our region?
  • Nutritional: Peterborough & the Kawarthas has a vibrant food community. From farmers’ markets to chic restaurants, it’s easy to find fresh farm food that has only travelled minutes to get to your plate or picnic basket.
  • Care of the skin and body: From massages to wraps, and facials any of our region’s day- or resort spas are fully equipped to provide essential treatments.

You’ll find lots of opportunities to indulge your personal approach to health and wellness here. It may be at a spa or you might simply absorb the benefits of being in the great outdoors. Sometimes, serenity is just about picking up a book that you just haven’t gotten around to reading yet.
