An amazing experience but not for the faint of heart. This is first and foremost a serious hiking trip. Four hours of hiking up and down mountains every day - take the 30-day preparation seriously to avoid injury. That said, the staff are amazing and you can hike at your own pace. Afternoon fitness and yoga are excellent. Massages are done by trained sports therapists. We weren't sure what to expect with a vegan menu - meals and snacks are delicious. For those that need more than 1400 calories/day, extra snacks and servings are available. You just have to ask. I don't think we ever heard the word "no". Of note - cell service is non-existent on property. Make sure you're set up for wifi calling if you need to make calls. Most guests take a break from technology, but there's always that time when you need to reach home. For our week, nearly half were return guests. I understand why. It is a transformational experience.
