Canada’s new geothermal lagoon will be an epic weekend escape from Toronto
A Canadian company is planning to build the world’s largest geothermal lagoon just hours from Toronto, and the renderings look out of this world.
Quebec company geoLAGOON is inspired by Iceland’s famous Blue Lagoon to offer Canadians a breathtaking open-air lagoon featuring a patent-pending thermal reservoir heating system.
The state-of-the-art lagoon will combine a water bath with an insulated sub-reservoir that will maintain the waters at 38°C all year round. The massive 130,000 square foot lagoon is set to be built in Charlevoix, Quebec, just an hour northeast of Quebec City.
The geoLAGOON village will also include hundreds of chalets that will encircle the serene lagoon.
The first phase of the project consists of the presale of more than 100 double wooded cabins, starting at $819,000. Cottages can be purchased for living in or can be rented out to tourists for vacation.
Besides the lagoon, the village will also offer art galleries, ski resorts, golf facilities, restaurants and whale watching experiences.
The unprecedented and globally stunning lagoon will be constructed in the second stage, which will be built to pool level standards with no discharge to the surrounding environment.
Construction should begin in March 2023 and other lagooning projects are already underway in the Laurentians, Lanaudière and the Eastern Townships.
Although you might have to wait a while to visit this stunning lagoon, you should definitely consider adding it to your to-do list.
