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.

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.

Food was amazing in its taste and being nutritionally dense to keep you fueled in all physical activity. The hikes were well planned and absolutely beautiful. The program is wholistic covering all aspects of your health and wellness. The staff was professional and customer centric. The yoga studio is the most beautiful setting ever and the instructor was so helpful in guiding me a beginner through the gentle yoga practice. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to radically change their health trajectory. I went in tired , out of shape and overweight. I came out of the week energized and ready to keep moving along with my metabolism kicked into to work properly. Now 5 months later I have continued to put into practice that which I have learned which has led to losing 20 pounds over that time and moving more than I have in years.

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!!!!

After a week at Mountain Trek I feel lighter, filled with more energy, walking taller, and brimming with enhanced positivity of body, spirit and mind. I feel that this should be on everyone’s ‘must do’ list in our busy and stressed out world—the experience was a game changer for me. with regards to a complete physical and mental recharge. The lodge and grounds are beautiful, overlooking the stunning lake. The day is fully packed but filled with such a wonderful array of balanced experiences. I loved starting each day with a yoga class, and the daily workshop(s) on a variety of health and balance related topics were so full of common sense and educational. As an avid lifelong hiker it was not the length or difficultly but rather, the quick pacing of the hikes that was for me was the most challenging part of the program. But they accommodate different levels and the hiking locations were all varied, stunning, and such a fine representation of the gorgeous natural surroundings in this precious corner of the world. I also loved the fitness classes each evening after dinner—terrific and energizing variety of strength and cardio training. The week included a very special ‘forest bathing experience’, along with a most welcome soak in the hot tub/steam room/sauna, complete with the ‘obligatory’ cold water soak each evening. Other little bonuses included a ‘retail therapy’ shopping experience at special small local community filled with talented artisans, and an opportunity to see the local salmon spawning and run. Thank you Katya for ‘making’ us take the full body glacier plunge in Kokanee Lake (certainly an experience to cherish and remember) and for your inspirational presence. Kudos to all the staff—to Kirk, to all the guides, the chefs, the fitness instructors, massage therapist (heaven three times a week) and the friendly housekeeping and grounds staff—you all helped to make my week so very special. Bonus to the week I was there was the close camaraderie that developed between 15 very special and supportive individuals from all over North America. This trip is an experience of a lifetime and a true investment in yourself.

This place is the real deal. No gimmicks or fads. They offer one of the best programs available. Not only do they provide a comfortable and beautiful place but also focus on a complete focus on total health and well being. They provide you with so much information and tools to take home with you to continue your health journey when you leave. These people know their stuff! The whole program is amazing from yoga to beautiful hikes as well as strength training. I can’t praise them enough. The food was amazing too. If you’re on the fence about going, please do yourself a favor and go. You won’t regret it!

If you are looking for a fantastic and unfussy way to reset your health, Mountain Trek is the perfect place to do it. The staff is outstanding and knowledgeable about a variety of health topics, the hikes are wonderful and geared towards all levels and speed, the food was delicious. I wasn't hungry at all in spite of being on a calorie restricted diet. I've done several other upscale spas like Miraval and Canyon Ranch, and I would not return to any of them. I will return to Mountain Trek. Its unpretentious approach to moving you towards better health was exactly what I needed.

This is THE premier place to go for a week of exceptional health education, fitness strengthening, and overall awareness of how to live a longer, more fulfilling, energetic, and happier life. The staff, food, facilities, and experiences on offer are top of the class, hands-down. For me, this was a genuine transformational experience that will affect the rest of my life. This is a program for people who like to walk and hike.

This was my second time at Mountain Trek and once again it exceeded my expectations! I love that they have 4 group levels for hiking. The last time I was here (about 10 yrs ago), I was at the top of my game for fitness and was in their group 1 hiking. This time (post the inactivity of the pandemic and a recovering sprained ankle) I was in group 4. I was a bit nervous since I was much more out of shape, but the group 4 pace for the hikes was the perfect balance of challenging and doable! I felt encouraged and supported the entire time. All the staff are incredibly knowledgeable and positive, the other guests were great to meet and get to know. With a max of 16 guests, it always feels intimate, and at the end of the week, I felt like I made new friends. The food was delicious, I never felt hungry. The lectures/talks were educational and inspirational with a focus on how to incorporate what we learned into the rest of our lives. Did I mention the 3 included evening massages!!! I left feeling clearer in my mind, stronger in my body, and lighter in my soul! 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.

Jalapin asked a question Dec 2017
Lunenburg, Nova Scotia7 contributions2 helpful votes
does it work for seriously obese seniors?
Answer from codoc324
Boulder, Colorado5 contributions6 helpful votes
Great question, Jalapin. I think that anyone, regardless of how obese he or she is, would benefit from the exercise, healthy diet, and lifestyle guidance that Mountain Trek provides. They make sure that each guest's hikes are appropriate for his/her own level and ability, even if that means guiding a guest 1:1. It's a wonderfully supportive atmosphere. Even more importantly, the education that they provide is straightforward and is designed to be incorporated into your life after you leave, so the benefits of going to Mountain Trek are not just week-long. But I suggest that you call them directly, and ask them your question(s) - they can also tell you what their experience has been with "seriously obese" seniors.
Answer from Paula P
Raleigh, North Carolina8 contributions10 helpful votes
There is no smoking allowed anywhere, as well as no alcohol nor caffeine. The classes/staff/daily activities are a great support for better heatlth and personal choices. It was literally life altering for me.
Answer from DayTravellers
NY28 contributions15 helpful votes
Yes! it's impressive how much time they spend making sure you are hiking in the best group for you---and all the guides have walkie-talkies to allow people to switch groups at some point during the day if you are feeling particularly strong or tired and need to change groups. There are many steep and challenging hikes, especially if you want them!
