Get Active at New Zealand's Pumped Up Wellness Retreat
At Aro Hā, a wellness retreat in New Zealand’s Southern Alps, you’ll find that being in a remote wilderness makes everything more appealing— even raw food and hours-long hikes. The day begins with the hum of Tibetan singing bowls, which rouse you for sunrise yoga. After a delicious gluten- and dairy-free breakfast, you can take part in vegetarian cooking demos, enjoy a therapeutic massage, practice meditation, or head out on a three- to four-hour hike through Mount Aspiring National Park. By dinnertime you’ll be asking for seconds of carrot tacos with “living” green chile corn chowder. Five-day stays from $2,970, all-inclusive.
