A Magical 'Blue Lagoon' Is Coming To Canada & Here's What It'll Look Like (PHOTOS)
If you've always wanted to visit the iconic hot springs of Iceland, this one's for you! A huge geothermal lagoon inspired by the Nordic pools is coming to Canada, and new photos have been released showing just how magical it'll be.
GeoLAGON is a plan for three projects in Petite-Rivière-Saint-François, a small town on the Saint Lawrence River in Quebec, that will rely on renewable energy. The project is by developer Louis Massicotte, the former president of Calypso Park.
New photos from geoLAGON show the Nordic-style design of the huge geothermal lagoon.
The open-air lagoon would be heated year-long at a comfortable 38 degrees, meaning you can enjoy the relaxing waters day or night.
The plan is for four resort villages to be built in Quebec, with locations in Charlevoix, the Eastern Townships, Lanaudière and the Laurentians.
Surrounding the lagoon will be urban-style waterfront cottages sold in doubles to investors, who will then be able to list them as short-term rentals.
According to Massicotte, the project is on track to be 100% energy sufficient, and will have "a significant potential surplus" of energy, which could "be put at the service of the community."
The site of the first geoLAGON location is under an hour from Quebec City and minutes away from attractions like Club Med Québec Charlevoix and the Massif de Charlevoix ski area, meaning visitors to the chalets will have tons to see and do.
Work on the project is expected to start before the spring of 2023.
