yourself on the northwest shore of Great Slave
Lake, Northwest Territories, Canada. Slide back
in time to the formation of earth herself, and
enjoy the healing comfort of our wilderness
spa. Sah Naji Kwe offers the ultimate wilderness
spa experience. Clay is Mother Earth's own skin;
strong, supple and enduring. The clay deposit
at Sah Naji Kwe was created and cleansed by
the purifying forces of wind and water. This
natural deposit of marine glacial clay in its
pristine granite setting retains a nurturing,
therapeutic power to rejuvenate your body and
revitalize your soul.
Our summer days last up to 22 hours. Absorb
the flow of the natural world around you, and
bathe in the warm shallows of Great Slave Lake
as eagles and Arctic terns soar above. In the
evening, by late August, you can watch the spectacular
show of the northern lights.
