#Outaouaisfun experiences to live in 2016!

Published on January 5 2016

At this time of the year, everybody has taken good resolutions. We all have good intentions ... which only last a few days or even weeks to the most persevering.

Being a new mom to the most beautiful little baby boy on earth, my perception of life has changed a bit. And that is why, in 2016, my resolution is to spend quality time with family and with my friends because life goes by so fast. And that is my wish for you too.

To help you keep this resolution for 12 months, here is a list of #Outaouaisfun experiences that you ABSOLUTELY have to live in 2016. Whether with your children, your extended family or your friends, the important thing is that you spend this time with those you love.

Källa Treatment

Give yourself a moment of absolute relaxation in the only salt-water floating pool in North America. The Källa treatment is a large salt water pool dug 5 meters deep into the rock. Filled with water saturated to 12% of Epsom salt, Källa invites you to an extraordinary experience of weightlessness in the quiet atmosphere of its underground location.
