Every November and March, Mountain Trek brings its award-winning program to our sister lodge in North America’s oldest mountain range. We’ve carefully selected the Appalachian Mountains as a destination for you to find balanced health and reclaim functional fitness. The deep blue mountain tops, lush forests and paintable valleys are both energizing and grounding—the ideal landscape for your physical transformation. And with the lodge being just 35 minutes from the local airport, which has direct flights from 18 cities, this escape is as convenient as ever.
Note: At this time, we do not have any pop-up retreats planned for The Appalachians. Please consider joining us at our primary lodge, where the program is best experienced, in British Columbia
Imagine an all-inclusive luxury retreat that not only takes care of your every need but also ensures you improve your health and wellness at the same time. At Mountain Trek, it’s easy to reverse the effects of aging, stress and overworking, and rediscover your energy, creativity, and vitality.
For the week (or two) you spend with us, you will follow a program specifically designed and proven to dramatically improve your health, both physically and mentally. Each day you’ll do morning yoga, hike deep into the lush nature of the Appalachian Mountains, eat nutritious chef-prepared spa cuisine and detox in the spa.
You will increase your energy and confidence, improve your sleep, reduce stress, and lose weight. You will return home revitalized and ready to conquer the world.
What you will gain
After a week of living healthfully with Mountain Trek, you will leave feeling lighter and younger, both physically and mentally. Additionally, our guests enjoy:
Igniting Your Metabolism
Mental Clarity & Stillness
Mountain Trek’s Sister Lodge, Hotel Domestique, is a European-style boutique hotel tucked at the base of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. Rustic architecture and luxury blend to transport guests far beyond the routine of ordinary life, and with only thirteen rooms, this intimate setting will make your stay one to remember. Newly built infrared sauna and hot tub complete the package.
Classically-trained Chef Nick Graves will prepare Mountain Trek’s spa cuisine to nourish you throughout the day and reboot your metabolism. Each day, Nick and his team of renowned chefs, who are dedicated to using only local, seasonal ingredients, will craft six energizing, balanced meals. These meals are properly portioned and timed to optimize your energy levels and metabolism.
Each day, we will explore a new trail in the oldest, most breathtaking terrain in the United States. We will wind our way through oak forests dotted with rhododendrons, and bath in nature’s beauty, regaining an appreciation for ourselves and the world around us. Employing Nordic style fitness hiking, Mountain Trek hikes will ignite your athleticism and metabolism. To see a sample of our hikes, visit our Guide To Exploring The Blue Ridge Mountains.
Spa & Fitness
To support and balance our fitness hiking, each day will start with gentle hatha yoga and end with a functional exercise class followed by relaxing in the spa and therapeutic massages. Three 50-minute therapeutic massages are included with your stay.

Is Mountain Trek Right For You?
The Mountain Trek program has been designed, delivered, and evolved over the past two decades to help guests reclaim their fitness and health. We carefully and intentionally share and implement science-based methods that raise your metabolism, balance key hormones, reduce cellular inflammation, and modulate your endocrine and nervous systems. The result is lasting, genuine health improvements.
Our guests attend because they are serious about improving their health, physically and mentally. They understand that while sitting by the pool with cucumbers on their eyes and a cocktail in their hand sounds relaxing, it won’t result in a happier, healthier life beyond that immediate moment.
Our retreat follows a specifically designed schedule and has some key inclusions and exclusions. Please email, call, or request more information below if you have questions.
How Does This Experience Vary From The Primary British Columbia Retreat?
Our primary goal—to offer you a life-changing transformative health reset—remains unchanged. However, when operating away from our lodge in B.C., there will always be some small differences. If you are familiar with our program in B.C., you can expect the following:
Easier Transportation / Closer To Airports
Massages are in-room vs. in a treatment room
Evening exercise classes are held at an adjacent resort (5 min drive)
The restaurant is open to non-program guests for dinner
