An American Express survey on global travel trends reports that 78% of respondents indicate wanting to travel to uplift their health and relieve stress. With the influx of fitness and wellness trips opening around the world — from rainforest adventures to tropical vacations — it’s evident that the travel industry has come prepared. Those craving for a mental and physical reset can definitely treat themselves with any one of the trips on our list.
Check out 4 fitness and wellness trips to help you recenter…
#1. Rainforest retreat
When someone says rainforest retreat, you immediately think about sweeping treetop canopies. Though being amongst nature is healing in itself, resorts have taken to injecting a more holistic approach to luxurious wellness offerings. For instance, THE WELL at Hacienda AltaGracia has a mix of eastern and western therapies which include craniosacral facials, immersive riverside meditation, and lunar-going baths. Those who want more than treatments can opt to explore the rainforest and wildlife through guided excursions. As The WELL demonstrates, there’s an endless stream of activities and adventures that promote relaxation in rainforest retreats — of course, the lush setting doesn’t hurt, too.
#2. Digital detox
Most times, we ignore daily stresses until they begin to compound and burn us out. By that point, you may feel the need to just disconnect. There are hotels and resorts that allow you to do just that. One such hotel is Willka T’ika, which is located in Peru and surrounded by the vast Andes mountains. Willka T’ika prioritizes restoring their guests’ energy, and this is especially true with their newly-launched seven-day Essential Wellness program. Each day provides specialized Andes healing ceremonies, farm-to-table meals and immunity-boosting teas, and uplifting hikes. Because nature is central to the overall experience, you definitely won’t be missing your phones or laptop for the duration of your trip.
#3. Coastal vacation
Being near the water inspires a sense of solitude — maybe this is why so many people visit the sea. When you think of trips associated with the sea, beach resorts are the first to come to mind, and for a good reason. Beach resorts offer tons of activities, not to mention the stunning sunsets you get to see at the end of the day. However, they aren’t the only ones that foster a healing environment, as there are a lot of boat trips with a strong focus on wellness and fitness programs.
Cruise-based trips like Explora Luxury Cruises afford you the luxury of designing tailor-made fitness and wellness programs that will suit your relaxation needs. You have your pick among a wide variety of treatment rooms and fitness programs, though you can also opt to join group workouts if you want to socialize and have fun. Similarly, if you’re the type who thrives in group activities and wants to make new friends, consider signing up for In Adventures Sailing Retreats. Each day is packed with exciting water activities, healthy meals, and yoga classes that are set against picturesque beaches and crystal clear waters.
#4. Mountain hideaway
There’s nothing quite like taking in sprawling mountain sceneries. Something about their vastness urges you to take a minute and reflect. If you plan on heading towards the mountains for a secluded getaway, we strongly recommend Italy. The country not only has incredible architecture found in the likes of Venice or Florence, but it’s also home to some spectacular mountain views as well. The Dolomites, in particular, a group of mountains lying on the Northern Italian Alps, is a feat of natural beauty and diversity. It has become a popular wellness spot for those who want to reconnect with nature, so there are plenty of hotels to choose from. One we suggest visiting is the Miramonti Boutique Hotel. Nestled on top of a large rock 4,000 feet above Merano, you’re ensured an uninterrupted time for relaxation. Here, they offer forest therapy, organic treatments, and Nordic-style sauna centers. You can also enlist the
the help of a “body and mind coach” to create a unique wellness and fitness plan for you during your stay.
