What may be the largest thermal lagoon is being built in Canada, and it promises to keep things warm all year long. 


Located in the Charlevoix region of Quebec, the geoLagon is set to be 130,000 square feet. For reference, this puts it at 37,000 square feet larger than Iceland’s famous Blue Lagoon. 

Looking destined to be a new spa retreat, a village of chalets is slated to be constructed around the human-made lake. 


The enormous geothermal pool will be kept at a simmering 102 degrees Fahrenheit all year long, which promises a great escape on wintery nights. Or it could also be a great place to relax the body even on balmy summer evenings.

A reservoir of thermal heating is embedded under the lagoon, which captures and stores heat generated from the biomass, geothermal, and solar panel systems. This network of heating models will essentially make geoLagon self-sustainable.


In an interview with New Atlas, CEO, and founder of geoLagon, Louis Massicotte notes that the project will be able to produce energy in surplus, which it will then distribute to surrounding areas. 


Adding to the eco-friendly efforts, the wooden chalets that surround the lake will also be solar-powered. 


Construction for geoLagon will happen in three phases, the first of which begins in March of next year when half of the cottages will rise before the lagoon is erected, followed by the rest of the houses. In total, the entire project will take 18 months to complete.
