5 reasons why you (and a friend) should join us at Mountain Trek this fall

Fall Hike at Monica Meadows in BCMountain Trek is half-way through its 2013 season and what an incredible one it has been. The majority of our weeks have been sold out, we’ve had unprecedented press coverage (we’ve been featured in everything from the National Post to CNN), our guests have met most of their fitness goals while making life-long friends and the weather has been absolutely stunning: we’ve enjoyed lots of sunshine with clear blue skies and stunning views of the mountains, lakes and rivers in this beautiful area of British Columbia.

Not only is August is a chance to look back at the year thus far, it’s also a month for recreation, relaxation and retreat. You’ve worked hard all year and now it’s time to consider taking some space for yourself: start thinking about leaving behind the stresses and worries of your job, your child-rearing, or whatever it is that occupies so much of your time, if even for a little while. Whether you need to do this on your own, or you’re happy to have your spouse, family or friends join you, it’s time to treat yourself to a Mountain Trek experience!

Here are five reasons why you should book a two-week “Lifestyle Renewal” program or a one-week “Metabolism Reboot” program in the late summer and/or autumn months at Mountain Trek.

#1. We’re offering even more!

As many of you already know, a week or two at Mountain Trek is a life-changing adventure. Nowhere else offers the unique combination of spa, vacation and boot camp that is the Mountain Trek experience. With our luxurious alpine lodge as your comfortable home base, you’ll experience world-class hiking, and nutrition and lifestyle guidance that will boost your metabolism and shift you into a lasting, healthy state of body and mind for the rest of the year, and beyond! And now, in response to some of our guests’ requests, we are offering even more workshops including the Cooking Remastered course with Chef Laurie Hartland.

#2. The kids are away. Time to play

As our children head back to school now’s the perfect opportunity to get away from your day-to-day and spend some much-needed time on yourself getting fit during the day and getting pampered at night with our massages, saunas and world-famous hot springs.

#3. ‘Tis the season for wildlife

Late summer and autumn is the time when we spot even more animals: the moose, deer and elk are wandering the wilds looking for mates; the marmotspikas, chipmunks and rabbits are stockpiling; and the osprey, eagles and innumerable songbirds are all in flight, passing south to their winter abodes.

#4. Have the outdoors all to yourself

Can you imagine having the mountains all to yourself? Late summer and autumn are the perfect time to visit the south-central region of B.C. because there are fewer tourists on such iconic hikes as Idaho Peak and Fry Creek. It will be just you, your new-found fitness friends and some of the most stunning mountainous views in the world.

#5. Get back on track

Summer is typically the time when we set aside some of our healthy routines and indulge in drinks on the patio, french fries at the festivals and staying up late into the night. Come to Mountain Trek, eat delicious healthy meals, boost your vitality and metabolism, get more active and then take everything you’ve learned back to your daily life again.

Book now! We look forward to seeing you soon!
