The Hiking – Nordic Fitness Trekking
Each 3-4 hour fitness hike is unique, and we’ve picked the very best the area has to offer, taking full advantage of the local Provincial Parks and trails. Guests are divided into three to four fitness-based groups and led by experienced hiking guides trained in Wilderness First Aid. Lunch is eaten each day at a convenient spot along the trail – usually a scenic location such as a waterfall, alpine lake, meadow or glacier-fed river. In addition to being a highly rewarding health program, we’re one of the most amazing hiking vacations in Canada – you will love our gorgeous hikes!
Picnic Lunch on Trail (12:30pm)
The chefs prepare all your snacks and your delicious and hearty lunch – exactly what you’re looking for in a fulfilling meal on the trail.
Return to Lodge (3:30pm)

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.
As seen above, 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.
