My wife and I just returned from a week at Mountain Trek in British Columbia. After attending countless spas, fitness programs and health retreats, we believe this is the best experience available today - bar none. It is expensive and full immersive but if you need to make changes or a total health and body reset, this is the program for you. Alex, Kirk, Katya, their exceptional hiking guides and spa staff have spent 20 years perfecting their comprehensive approach to total health and wellness following a 7 point guided interactive program. You will leave with a complete plan and roadmap to continue on your progress which for me meant losing 11 pounds and reducing my chest and waist by 7 inches. We have now attended the Mountain Trek Program six times and it just keeps getting better. We plan to return every few years to reset and we have now extended the invitation to all the members of our family to benefit from this incredible program. For me the highlight of the trip was getting to dive into crystal clear Kootenay Glacier Lake without a cloud in the sky surrounded by a valley full of wildflowers and feeling like today is the first day of the rest of my life.

This was my first time at this sort of wellness resort and I was blown away. The whole experience was excellent from beginning to the final day. The staff were amazing, the hikes incredible, the massages heavenly and the food was out of this world. I went here for a physical and mental reset and got everything I wanted and more. Highly recommended.

This is not a 'hotel' ... it is a hiking retreat. I needed space to balance and reset both physically and mentally. This was just the recipe. I chose a 2 week option which, while pricey, allowed me to really go forward on a solid re-energized base. This is a physcially active program with beautiful scenery and fantastic food served up daily. AND you'll meet amazing people too. Highly recommend.

I’ve been going to Mountain Trek for seven years now (ever since I was 32). It truly is my happy place. After a week at Mountain Trek, i feel absolutely amazing. It’s like your body is functioning the way it was meant to. You are filled with energy and happiness and your body feels strong and accomplished. I love the hiking the best, but also the yoga, the delicious food, the nightly massages, the hot springs, the cold plunges(!)…and most of all the people. The Mountain Trek staff is just simply the best you will ever encounter. I know I will be going back for many years to come.

10 STARS if I could! I just completed a week at Mountain Trek, BC, and it is hands down one of the best experiences you can treat yourself to. It's a combination of exorcise entailing beautiful - yet as rigorous as you want - hikes through the BC wilderness, coupled with well prepared workout sessions, informative and practical health/wellness classes, complete body detox resulting from the BEST food and meal preparation/presentation you could imagine. All in the setting of a spectacular view over looking Lake Kootenay! Even with all the activities and following a schedule, you find yourself the most relaxed and detached from every day stressors. The staff and guides are very friendly and helpful, and the two lead guides - Kirk and Katya - are truly experts run their fields of heath/nutrition and all knowing of the wilderness and area. I can't say enough how awesome of an experience it was! Thanks to everyone at MT and I HIGHLY recommend!!

My wife and I were lucky enough to enter NZ a few days before the quarantine. The group ended up with us and another wonderful couple we met last year in Italy. We had Alex and Kirk to ourselves! They were the perfect hosts. Even in the changing world the Mountain Trek team are over the top on attending to any issue. We hope that this same trip is offered again next year......you had better sign up fast because the 4 of us are definitely going again. BTW, the side excursions, hotels and restaurants were everything we dreamed of. Thank you Alex and Kirk for a wonderful week!!!!

This resort might as well be straight from heaven. Wake up early for some sunrise yoga and then soak up the minerals in that natural mountain water. And of course, how could it not be on our list, without a spa?

Wow - thank you very much for your comments! The Kootenay Mountains are certainly heavenly, aren't they? We hope to have you back for sunrise yoga, and to earn that awesome hot tub soak at the end of the day. Be well.

I went with a friend to Mountain Trek. We were both looking for a health reboot for different reasons, but I wasn't totally sure what to expect. In the end, it was everything I was looking for. The hiking was outstanding, and there was something for every level. Despite having hiked my entire life, I learned a lot about pole technique, posture, and even foot care! I was challenged and got stronger. I felt like I really pushed myself, which was great. I'm not really a yoga person, but I even enjoyed that and I learned a lot about stretching and roller work. The food was wonderful. The guides, coaches, and massage therapists were also top notch. Cathy and Kirk really made the program come together. All of the lectures were well done. I already know a lot about health and wellness, but still learned a lot. I found the most important part to be the wisdom they imparted around goal setting and habits. I can't wait to see where this program will take me now that I'm back home. It has given me a lot to think about and I am already on track implementing my goals. Thank you Mountain Trek!

Two wonderful week - an investment in my health! No wonder this retreat program won so many awards. It’s a perfect place to do a reset, recharge, reflect and get fit. All of this while enjoying beautiful breathtaking hikes and views, surrounded by a ratio of 3 to 1 staff (max participants/wk 16), feasting on ridiculously spectacular delicious organic calorie-controlled spa cuisine and pampering yourself in the spa. The 5 pilar on which this program is based covered in the lectures, are designed so you walk away with a plan and small actions to enable you to reach your current and/or future goals. The overall aim is to systematically incorporate small new actions to live a balanced healthy life while dealing with the current fast pace of life today. « Keep progressing Not perfection »

My wife and I went to MountainTrek for our 30th anniversary, to reboot our health for the next 30 years :). We both now look at this as one of the greatest experiences of our lives. I came home feeling better and more energetic than ever. I had a significant caffeine and sugar fix, and didn’t miss either at all. The hikes are challenging, but the payoff is so worth it! The entire staff is top-notch and the food out of this world. My only advice would be that you wean off of the caffeine in advance, which I did to save my headaches for home rather than the gorgeous Canadian mountains. 🇨🇦 I’m very thankful to the entire staff at MountainTrek. They truly care for each person individually. This is not a “lounge around” holiday, but an incredible destination to reboot your health and your life.
