Wellness Travel

To boost your well-being and sense of purpose, get away to one of Maine’s many retreats. From elegant world-class resorts and luxurious boutique hotels to rustic cottages, there’s one that will suit your needs. Simply tap into your favorite pastime or guilty pleasure so you can relax, unplug and celebrate your spirit.

Yoga devotees will rejoice in the plentiful seminars offered in restful settings. Bring your partner, spouse or make it a mother-daughter weekend and enjoy the bliss together. You’ll discover packages with wellness treatments, fitness classes, meditation, and heathy vegetarian meals. Namaste.

If skiing, ice-skating or snowboarding invigorates you, the mountains of Maine have welcoming upscale and romantic resort hotels. After a day on the slopes, head to the lodge and warm up by the fire. Wind down in your palatial suite and soak in the oversized jetted tub. Mountain resorts boast year-round activities like golfing, hiking and festivals so you can head to the hills any time, leaving your stress behind.

To expand and empower your mental horizons, sign up for a themed inspirational workshop. These are set in gorgeous lake, mountain and oceanside locations, and you’ll be treated to thought-provoking classes, sumptuous rooms, gourmet meals, water sports, and nature walks. Take along a friend and appreciate the journey together.

How about a pampering holiday to soothe what ails? If ocean breezes settle you, there are luxurious coastal spas offering salt massages, facials and mani-pedis–the indulgences are limitless. You’ll find gorgeous accommodations, fine dining, seaside and indoor pools, and hospitable staffers ready to please. Bring a gal pal or if you’re betrothed, treat your bridesmaids to a calm spa day or weekend.

For those who kick back by pursuing outdoor adventures, Maine is your playground. Try a sea kayaking expedition with overnight camping on an ocean island. Thrill in a wildlife and moose safari tour. Get an adrenaline rush from whitewater rafting down a fast-flowing, wavy river. To really unwind, combine a few incredible adventures, call a rugged cabin home for a few days and you’ll have an experience you won’t soon forget.
