Kenauk Institute Annual Conference

Kenauk Nature is proud to partner with the Kenauk Institute whose mission is to support scientific research and create environmental education programs on the property, all with the goal of long term conservation! At the end of September, we have once again hosted the Kenauk Institute’s annual conference. This is always a great opportunity for researchers and students to share their projects, exchange ideas and marvel at the discoveries found at Kenauk throughout the summer. With dozens of Universities and Conservation Organizations in attendance this is a great time to celebrate the uniqueness of Kenauk, the diversity of research being conducted on the property and a chance to improve our conservation mandates moving forward.

Healthy Holidays: floating sauna and zenitude

This autumn, treat yourself to the benefits of a Finnish sauna… that floats!

A stay at Kenauk Nature is comparable to an experience in a health center or spa, especially if you take the opportunity to rent the floating sauna. With the regular movement of small lapping waves, the relaxation and detoxification of the sauna will take you to new levels of serene. In addition to providing a feeling of total well-being, the sight of the explosive fall colors will make the experience that much more special and will allow you to leave with peace of mind. If you want our opinion: the sunset is a perfect time to try it!

Suggested use of the Kenauk Nature floating sauna:

1. Enjoy the sauna for relaxation, detoxification and softening of the skin, to relieve sore muscles after sustained physical exertion and to soothe mental fatigue, tension and stress. Please note that it is very important to hydrate throughout the detoxification process.

2. Jump into the fresh lake water to stimulate blood circulation, restore muscle flexibility and improve sleep. The alternation of hot and cold is essential to maximize the benefits of the wood sauna. Do not be reluctant to dive!

3. Repeat as many times as you want!

The floating sauna works like a regular sauna, with a wood furnace, the only difference being that it is on a floating barge.

It is delivered to your chalet fully equipped and with detailed instructions. It has a waiting room and an outdoor seating area. With a capacity of 6 people, this sauna is ideal for couples, large groups and families.

The sauna is available only for chalets located on Papineau Lake, which includes Papineau Chalet, Cedar Chalet, Commandant Chalet, Hidden Chalet and FairLight Chalet.
