Wellness TRIPS by Culture Trip: What to Expect

Our Wellness itineraries are all about rest and relaxation – whether it’s paddleboarding on the Hudson River, ambling along the shores of Lake Tahoe, or sipping cider in the English countryside after a morning of meditation.

We’ve all experienced that exhausting holiday routine. You hurriedly book a last-minute trip and hope for the best, only to return as tired as ever, looking and feeling as crumpled as your unpacked laundry. Time to rethink your next break. TRIPS by Culture Trip offers a carefully thought-out collection of small-group adventures designed for every travel taste and personality. Our cherry-picked network of expert Local Insiders will get you under the skin of a destination, meaning you don’t have to worry about planning ahead. All you have to do is turn up, join in and enjoy.
Our wellness-focused getaways are slightly different: shorter and designed to detox. Freeing you from the wears of your daily routine, they take place in more remote areas of natural beauty, with activities such as meditation, paddleboarding and hiking. We promise you’ll return refreshed and reinvigorated, ready to face the world again.
1 . Escape the bustle of NYC in the leafy Hudson Valley
Step away from the urban thrill of nearby New York City – this trip does just what it says it will. You’ll spend days engaged in mindful, active and creative activities surrounded by the leafy farm-to-table communities of the Hudson Valley. Learn about yourself – and others – with beginner-level guided meditation, join an Inner Artist workshop, and try stand-up paddleboard yoga on the Hudson River – not forgetting to take scenic strolls by scene-stealing waterfalls in the High Falls Conservation Area. You’ll spend downtime chatting over casual dinners at your industrial-chic boutique hotel – a charming blend of rustic and urban – and browsing the local antiques and vintage stores. Our physical ratings reveal at a glance if our trips suit you – this one is graded easy, with leisurely walks.

2 . Swim and walk in the shadow of snow-tipped mountains at Lake Tahoe
Fancy a foray into rustic wellness? Join us for a four-day California getaway beside the clear waters of Tahoe, one of the loftiest lakes in the USA. The serene sight of the snow-tipped Sierra Nevada mountains alone will lower your heart rate, as will a gentle guided walk among their granite peaks – this trip’s physical rating is easy, so exertion won’t extend beyond ambling speed as you inhale lungfuls of fresh air. At the end of each day, after returning to your mid-century-modern mountain lodge base, take a tranquil dip in the swimming pool or hot tub before toasting s’mores – and your health – by the crackling fire pit.

3 . Try yoga on a stand-up paddleboard in rural England
Relax your mind and body on this four-day trip, which attracts our easy physical rating. Based in the rural Thames Valley, west of London, you’ll learn the valuable mindful practice of meditation in a serene riverside setting before hiking the Chiltern Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that is rich in wildlife. After a stand-up paddleboard yoga session on the River Thames, you’ll have earned a few sips of prize-winning local cider and a good natter around the dinner table. A day of mindfulness and fresh air will be the perfect prequel to dinner and sleep at a 17th-century riverside spot with rustic dining spaces complementing plush rooms.
