In Western Montana, relaxation, restoration and rejuvenation come in many forms. One of the best ways to add a health and wellness element to your Glacier Country adventure is spa time. Spas entail much more than indulgence and pampering; they offer a holistic approach to nurturing your mind, body and spirit. And when you pair spa time with the beauty of a place like Glacier Country, you’ve reached a whole new level of tranquility. Treat yourself to a restorative massage, body treatment, infrared sauna, float therapy, facial and more at one of our resorts, lakeside escapes, boutique day spas or wellness centers. We’ve got some of the best spas in Montana right here.

Flotation Therapy

While we often talk about floating the rivers out here, a flotation tank offers a whole different float experience. These sensory deprivation tanks are filled with a salt solution that transforms the tank into a zero-gravity environment. Floating helps you relax, recover and rejuvenate. Get your float on at Cloud 9 Float Spa in Kalispell, which also offers infrared sauna. At Float Missoula, float your cares away. Float Missoula also offers infrared sauna, massage, an apothecary and on-tap kombucha.
