January 2, 2020“People are expecting more personalized experiences all around, not just with travel — the more personalized an experience or product, the better,” said Alexander Timmons, owner of Mountain Trek, a luxury hiking and spa retreat company in British Columbia, Canada. Mountain Trek makes adjustments to hikes, based on a traveler’s goals, capabilities, and preferences, said Timmons. “The program is incredibly customized — hosting only 16 guests each week certainly helps.”

I Tried Nature Bathing in British Columbia for a Week — Here’s How Hiking Through the Mountains Helped Me Find MyselfI can’t pinpoint what it was exactly that made me do it. Was I overwhelmed by work? Burned out from the kids? Were my hormones out of balance, and eating too much processed food to compensate? Probably, yes — all of it. I just remember realizing, “I need a restart button.” I needed a place to get away from my day to day, to rebuild, refocus, and relocate the root of the person I had become.
November 5, 2019One- and two-week programs for just 16 guests encourage overall well-being, bringing hormones into balance, lowering stress levels, detoxifying bodily systems, and improving sleep with sunrise yoga, mindfulness lectures, and a healthy menu that’s more gourmet than granola. But it’s not all work. An on-site spa offers everything from infrared saunas and hydrotherapy pools to massages and soaks in natural hot springs.

October 16, 2019Plan a trip to beautiful British Columbia and spend quality time among natural landscapes in Canada. Mountain Trek Fitness Retreat & Health Spa is designed to help you lower stress levels, improve sleep quality, detoxify, strengthen mental health, increase your energy levels and, of course, stay in shape and increase muscle. The rustic lodge is located in the village of Ainsworth Hot Springs, 45 minutes from Nelson, and is also home to an indoor and outdoor spa and large yoga room overlooking the mountains.
August 24, 2019Ever wanted to hit pause on your life and program a major reset? If so, consider the all-inclusive regime at Mountain Trek, 45 minutes outside of Nelson, B.C. While hiking appears to be the main focus (you’ll be hitting the trails approximately four hours a day), fitness is but one of the five pillars here. Proper sleep, nutrition, detoxification and stress management round out their program dedicated to habit creation and living as optimally as you can.

August 5, 2019If spending just a few minutes in nature can have restorative effects on mind, body, and soul, what effect might six days of B.C. backcountry immersion have? Perched in the Kootenay Rockies, Mountain Trek fitness and wellness resort is a good place to find out. The daily hikes are spectacular, but the offering goes far beyond scenery and fitness to include an emphasis on nutrition (think world-class chef and holistic nutritionist), detoxification (you’ll be off booze, sugar, and caffeine), sleep, and stress management.
