KILLINGTON, Vt. May 9, 2017 – Every May since 1978, New Life Hiking Spa has run a hiking spa and wellness retreat in the Green Mountains of Vermont. Over the past 40 summers, it has grown from 12 guests to one of the top-rated destination spas in North America. Guests from all over the world flock to New Life Hiking Spa every spring through fall for this affordable getaway.
Combine world-class hiking with three freshly prepared meals a day, one massage for each three-night stay, fitness classes, and a private room in a Vermont ski-country inspired inn; and experience New Life Hiking Spa’s reinvigorating destination spa.
Thousands of guests have come through New Life’s doors and left relaxed, rejuvenated and healthier while getting an excellent value for decades. New Life typically has a return guest ratio of approximately 42 percent. “Guests return year after year because New Life Hiking Spa has the best programming and the best pricing of any destination spa in the country. It really is like summer camp for grown-ups, but with a hotel room, delightful massages and bodywork included,” stated frequent guest, G. Maxwell from Florida.
The 2017 season begins May 11th and will run through October 2nd. Reservations can be made online or by calling 802-353-2954. All-inclusive prices range from $229-$269 per person/per night.
New Life Hiking Spa coined the term “hiking spa,” so it makes sense that New Life provides the most comprehensive hiking spa program in North America. Each week, there are 21 different hikes offered in the beautiful and breezy Green Mountains. The terrain is hiking level appropriate that challenge each guest according to their fitness level. The Nature Walk is along flat or rolling hills 2-4 miles in length capturing Vermont scenery at a more relaxing pace. The Classic Hike is typically 4-6 miles on wooded trails, beautiful lookouts and serene waterfalls. The Advanced Hike covers steeper more challenging terrain and longer distances at a more vigorous pace. Some elevations are over 4000 feet. The hiking guides are expertly trained, know every inch of the terrain and are attentive to their hikers' needs. After hiking each morning, guests return to the inn for a freshly prepared lunch and can spend the afternoon in additional fitness classes or just relaxing by getting a massage or holistic spa service.
New Life Hiking Spa is currently the titleholder of the # 1 Destination Spa in America Award by Travel + Leisure Magazine. In addition, it has been listed as the #1 Destination Spa by Spas of America for 2014, 2015 & 2016.
