For over four decades, this seasonal hiking spa in Vermont has stayed true to its founding principles and flourished with tried and true methods of wellness immersed in natural surroundings.
Getting back to nature and using mountains instead of a treadmill, is what sets this wellness and weight loss retreat apart from the others. New Life Hiking Spa & Wellness Retreat is open during prime hiking season and encompassing the most beautiful hiking trails in the country!
Located in the lush Green Mountains of Killington, Vermont, New Life Hiking Spa is open mid-May through early fall — peak hiking season. Three levels of professionally guided hikes are offered every day to accommodate the varied needs of each guest’s fitness levels. That’s twenty-one weekly hikes and nature walks to provide guests an authentic Vermont hiking experience.
Professionally trained hiking guides who live, love, and breathe Vermont, are on hand to expertly lead guest on hikes to meet their needs. Nature walks wind through picturesque country settings, mountain streams, and waterfalls. The intermediate hikes are set along the diverse terrain of the Long Trail and famous Appalachian Trail. And for the advanced hiker or those up to the challenge, you’re offered the opportunity to summit some of the highest peaks in Vermont with breathtaking views and incredible vistas.
New Life Hiking Spa’s main programs revolve around the gorgeous beauty of Vermont. Known as the most affordable all-inclusive retreat in North America, each guest is provided private rooms with a private bath, three meals a day in the New Life dining room, indoor and outdoor fitness and wellness programming, and one massage or reflexology appointment for each three-night stay.
The theme of getting back to nature carries over into New Life Hiking Spa’s food philosophy. New Life advocates a respect for the nutritional value of whole food, as well as its origin, seasonality, availability, and freshness. Three meals a day are prepared fresh, on site, and created by a team of talented chefs who specialize in whole foods.
In addition to their award-winning hiking program, healthy food, fitness, and wellness programming, New Life also offers their guests massages set in a casual, accepting, come-as-you are environment. There’s a team of talented massage therapists available to meet your needs, many of whom have been with New Life for over 15 years! The massage services are often referred to as healing.
New Life Hiking Spa has become widely known over the past 40+ years as an unpretentious destination spa, but many return guests who know and love the program also refer to it as “grown up camp”.
Eating together in the dining room, bonding with the hiking guides who almost begin to feel like a positive “camp counselor”, and participating in carefree, outdoor activities, will make you feel like a kid again. Each day spent with Mother Nature—guests feel renewed, inside and out, and on track for the type of life they want to live.
