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

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

I actually stumbled upon Mountain Trek and will be forever grateful for my experience at this fitness and wellness focused retreat. Was it physically changing? Absolutely. By design. However, different than previous hiking and fitness retreats I have been on around the world, Mountain Trek breaks their outings into 4 groups allowing for up and down days or simply a more achievable hike in the medium range. I learned so much about the correct use of poles and the correct form out on the trail. The guides were all beautiful people that truly cared about our execution of form and safety. Kirk and Cathy’s leadership, operational excellence and wealth of knowledge they impart to guests should be required in our education systems. I found this retreat to be multifaceted and effective

I highly recommend Mountain Trek. I wasn't quite 100% sure what I was signing up for, and I read all these TA reviews - and re-read them before I booked. The retreat really is amazing. You get a true break from day-to-day life and stress. The staff is incredible from Kirk and Kathy to each guide to the housekeepers that constantly keep the lodge AND all your dirty laundry clean. The spa cuisine is so healthy and fresh. You really never go hungry while you eat less calories than you are likely to eat back at home. I went with my mom on the trip, which was great. They accommodate multiple fitness levels, although I wish I would have trained a bit more before the retreat. I pushed myself to limits I didn't think I had, and it feels really rewarding. You also learn so much about

I loved EVERYTHING about the experience at Mountain Trek. My husband and I were looking for a wellness retreat for my 50th. We looked at Rancho La Puerta, Canyon Ranch, etc... but we wanted something more intimate and a little more unique, something off the beaten path. We found it. We are already fit and healthy but we wanted that extra push to get us to get us back on track and to the next level. That's exactly what Mountain Trek provided for us. We learned so much about nutrition, fitness, SLEEP, mindfulness and how our body functions best. And the team provided tools and strategies to keep us on track at home. Each meal was delicious, the lectures were enlightening, the hiking was stunning, the lodge fitness was challenging. And by the way... They make the hiking

My trip to Mountain Trek came at the perfect time. While I’s someone who likes to stay in shape and does exercise quite regularly I’d been recovering from a recent back injury and had not been able to do much for almost two months (a lifetime for me). This coupled with some long hours at work were really taking their toll and I was badly in need of some kind of reset. Mountain Trek turned out to be just what I needed in so many ways. I expected to be challenged physically and I was. However I was pleasantly surprised to find out that they cater to all different fitness levels and no one is made to feel bad or uncomfortable about what they can or cannot do. All of the hiking guides were so helpful and motivational, the fitness folks kick your butt in the nicest way possible,

I try to keep fitness and health a priority since it provides so many benefits. Like most of us, I can get consumed with work and let health take a backseat at times. This has been a crazy year and fitness hasn’t been enough of a priority. So, I invested a week to get back on track. The rewards from my one week investment with Mountain Trek are truly remarkable and go well beyond the physical improvements I experienced. This wasn’t a typical vacation. It was an investment in becoming more balanced in my health and I left feeling a lovely mix of exhilaration and well earned exhaustion. I also left motivated and with practical, actionable steps to help keep health a priority even during the crazy times. The team at Mountain Trek are outstanding. They’re very knowledgeable,

I came to Mountain Trek for a week in mid May and it was one of the best experiences I have had! I am currently living in the middle east but had just left my job and have a few months before I start my new role. I was keen to spend the time trying to get back the fitness I have lost over the last few years, lose the weight I gained as a result of various health issues (despite being fairly active and sporty and eating healthily), travel and see friends and family. Being British, I started by looking at fitness retreats in Europe. None however quite fitted the bill. They were either yoga or treatment based so not active, or army style bootcamps with lots of strapping men shouting at you whilst you crawl around on the floor! I love sports but I much prefer being outdoors to the

It is impossible to state what a life altering trip this was . The scenery is breath taking. The cabin/resort is spotless and set above a gorgeous glacier feed lake surrounded by snow capped mountains. I felt well cared for by the lovely staff. The food was delicious and I was never hungry. I lost more weight than expected. I was taught so much regarding health and well being. The lessons learned will be carried throughout my life. The hikes were challenging but so rewarding. I will be back again soon. It was a lifestyle reset.

I don’t normally write reviews etc but had such a rewarding time at mountain trek, I felt it warranted one. Just returned from a week at mountain trek and from start to finish could not have asked for more. The team, food, hikes, lectures were fantastic and all the team there are completely on top of their game. I learned so much during my week there and have come away feeling refreshed. I now know balanced health is not all about weight loss but it was nice that a trousers that prev did not fit now does!!! The group of other guests also were great, really nice team spirit. Feel v lucky to have experienced it all.
