If you can keep a secret, this four-day getaway in the Hudson Valley will show you around one of the most secluded vacation spots in the US, right near one of the most crowded cities in the country.

Your creative soul will come through your renewed essence during an inner artist workshop. By the final day, you’ll be ready to return to city life with your baggage unloaded – literally and spiritually.

2 . Utah and Colorado, for rejuvenation by the rocks

Utah and Colorado prove that some of the most secluded places in the US are also some of the most stunning. See the epic rock formations in Arches National Park and the forest-covered mountains of Colorado during this eight-day trip. You’ll hike, wild swim, raft and explore the secluded backcountry. Not that it’s entirely secluded; you may spot a few black bears lounging in the living room that is Rocky Mountain National Park.
