Open Year Round

NORSK is Unique

There is no spa quite like NORSK in the United States.

NORSK is outdoor orientation. NORSK is the only outdoor-oriented thermal spa in the northeast. Many places have swimming pools and hot tubs as part of a hotel. This experience is different; it is all about being outside in and out of water and steam.

Our focus: NORSK is about whole-body wellness using a thermal cycle. You won’t find myriad traditional skin and beauty treatments here and you won’t find multiple forms of entertainment.

Our model: NORSK is based upon the Scandinavian hydrotherapy method, the process of experiencing both high and low temperatures to invigorate the body. Strom, Scandinave, and Groupe Nordik Spas, all highly successful in Canada, use this method.

Our proximity: Across the country, NORSK is the only exclusively outdoor-oriented spa an hour’s drive from a major metropolitan area. Others in the west depend on natural springs and are destination trips. Click here to read The New York Times article, Napping Away Winter in Montreal’s Nordic Spas

Affordability: For under $100, you will find a full day of soul-satisfying relaxation and quiet entertainment for adults, age 21 and up.

Our Location

NORSK location in the Hudson River Valley is a natural.

There are many reasons fifty million people visit the Hudson River Valley annually. It is an outdoor mecca for hiking, skiing, biking on rail trails and single tracks, and exploring state parks. It boasts quaint shopping, wineries, breweries and cideries, and agritourism. Quaint, revitalized communities such as artistic Beacon, historic Hyde Park, and scenic New Paltz are a short thirty-minute drive from NORSK.

These and other towns contain local breweries and distilleries, wineries, orchards, and farmer’s markets. Newburgh’s Front Street on the Hudson River and its Walkway over the Hudson, Hyde Park’s Culinary Institute of America, and the FDR and Vanderbilt Estates are but a few examples.

A visit to NORSK can be combined with other local attractions within a day or over a weekend. See more on the Dutchess Tourism website and the Dutchess County NY Parks and Trails website.
