As much as we hate to admit it, our return to normalcy is taking just as much of a toll on us as did our adaptation to the sheltered-at-home life. We are already craving a rejuvenating and de-stressing retreat away from the city chaos. And as if answering our woes, the popular wellness resort, Fairmont Banff Springs, announced its 3-week long Wild Wellness Retreat.

Picture this Hogwart-style castle (but several notches fancier) overlooking the blue waters of Bow River, curtained by tall Douglas fir trees and set against a backdrop of the majestic Rockies. Now, imagine replacing your boring ol’ gym and tiny enclosed meditation studios with this awe-inspiring serene set-up rife with the fresh mountain air. That, ladies and gentlemen, is the Fairmont Banff Springs for you!

Do we need any more reason to attend this retreat? Hell NO! But do we have one? Heck YES!

The Wild Wellness Retreat is straight out of our wellness vacay dreams. It’s a transformative retreat designed to be a holistic wellness experience for our body, mind and soul. From fitness to fire-side wellness and nutrition talks to meditation and spa treatments, it has everything we need our wellness retreat to be. And we haven’t even told you the best part yet.

Ready? Get this – the training sessions and talks will be conducted by Canada’s top fitness trainers- Tommy Europe, Brent Bishop and Tish Duffy- as rated by IMPACT magazine. Each week there will be a different trainer under whom you’ll achieve your fitness goals.

In addition to luxury accommodation, you can also access two training sessions each day, the fire-side talks with the trainers and 2 hours at the Willow Stream Spa.

Now, whether you want a whole week of wellness or just a quick weekend getaway to detox the city out of you, head to the Fairmont Banff Springs website to check out the deets of the retreat and book yourself in. And return back refreshed and renewed!
