As the #1 health retreat in the US and Canada, Mountain Trek has been a leader in the wellness space since it first opened its doors in 1991. Mountain Trek is an all-inclusive wellness retreat, nestled in the mountains of British Columbia, where guests can relax, reset and experience the latest in wellness, hiking, yoga, massage therapy, detox treatments, nutrition and more. Guests can experience five wellness trends we’ll be seeing this year at this one location.
Mountain Trek is always ahead of the curve with activities and amenities that fit into trends we’re seeing on the horizon for 2020:
- Carbon Tax – New for 2020, Mountain Trek will be charging a “carbon tax” for the Adventure Treks and donating the proceeds collected to plant trees in the destination to combat environmental damages done by simply having all of the guests fly out there. For an upcoming New Zealand Adventure Trek, 95 trees will be planted for every guest booking.
- Mindfulness Grass Walk – Walking meditation, a common tool in the Buddhist tradition, brings attention to the mechanical placement of the foot and the sensations felt by reawakening the millions of nerves on the bottom of the feet. Brain science has shown that going barefoot fires more neurons in the brain, and can even reverse early onset of dementia and improve libido
- Nature Bathing – Sensorial integration is the practice of sitting in nature and bringing one’s mental focus to each of the 5 senses, noticing as much information as possible. Dropping deeply into the senses is an effective practice to control stress levels resulting from our over-stimulated urban lifestyle. The result is an enrichment of ‘feel good’ hormones and lowering of stress hormones.
- Digital Detox – Guests turn off all tech access and power down for the week, to remove outside stressors, avoid burnout and allow complete relaxation and retreat
- Hot Springs Healing – The Ainsworth Hot Springs are just feet away from Mountain trek’s lodge, and have been healing visitors with their soothing and relaxing water for hundreds of years. The hot springs consist of warm mineral waters in a natural cave and pool, and serve as a perfect end of day treat for Mountain Trek guests to relax and sooth sore muscles after long days of hiking.
