The latest wellness trend is to vacation solo and New Life Hiking Spa & Wellness Retreat makes perfect sense.

Situated perfectly in Killington, Vermont where the famous Appalachian Trail and Long Trail meet, New Life Hiking Spa has been catering to solo wellness seekers since 1978.  This highly rated wellness retreat offers "mountains instead of a treadmill" for exercise and includes three calorie-controlled meals and massages in its nightly rate.  Solo travelers describe it as a "camp-like" atmosphere where all meals are served at the same time and evenings can be spent around a fire pit.

Solo travel has been growing in popularity in the past decade, as have wellness retreats.  Everyone from burnt out executives to caregivers have been seeking rest and rejuvenation by traveling solo.  The global wellness market has grown 12.8 percent over the past couple of years, making wellness retreats one of the most popular vacation options for people wanting to go it alone on their vacation.

New Life Hiking Spa is open seasonally in the Green Mountains of Vermont and upwards of about 70 percent of the guests travel solo.  The founder and director of New Life, Jimmy LeSage says, "Much needed alone time is an essential part of wellness and we make it very comfortable for anyone to feel comfortable here, to recharge and return to life with a new outlook. Many of our solo guests are not only looking to take a break from their daily life, but to also figure out a way to go back home and incorporate what they learned on vacation into real life.  They pick up new, healthy habits while they are here." 

Spending time in nature is a big part of the program.  Each morning, at least three different levels of hiking are offered.  From beginner nature walks in the forest to hiking up some of the highest peaks in Vermont, New Life's wellness programming centers around professionally guided hikes.  The afternoon consists of a variety of wellness and fitness classes back at the hotel, a guided meditation walk around a waterfall or a holistic massage.  One massage or reflexology appointment is included with each three night stay.

New Life Hiking Spa & Wellness Retreat is often listed as one of the top wellnessretreats in the world by publications such as Town & Country, Travel & Leisure and Health Magazine according to articles that appear on internet searches.  Individual reviews and comments from Facebook, Google and other review sites collaborate it is a worthwhile retreat.  Amy Colletti from Florida commented, "I just booked by sixth trip back to New Life Hiking Spa. It is a treat I give myself for one week of every year. I usually go for one week, which includes two massages, daily hikes, food and a room. You just can't beat this place for the price. I always feel healthier when I leave. So happy I found it and plan to return every summer as long as I'm breathing!"
