About New Life Hiking Spa
Situated in the lush Green Mountains of Vermont since 1978, New Life Hiking Spa is an authentic, affordable, all-inclusive destination spa renowned for its personalized weight loss, wellness and fitness programs. Open each season from mid-May through the beginning of October, New Life will reopen for its 40th anniversary at the newly renovated Killington Mountain Lodge.
New Life is one of the oldest and most established destination spas in the U.S. and was named the #1 Travel and Destination Spa in 2016 by Travel + Leisure Magazine. It has also won numerous Spafinder Wellness Travel awards for fitness, affordability, outdoor adventure and activities, nutrition and healthy cuisine, and yoga, as well as being voted “Best for Men.”
The New Life program accommodates up to 55 guests at a time, and each year people travel from around the world to attend 21 night extended wellness vacations, eleven-night weight loss retreats, five-to-ten night jump-start getaways and two-to- four night mini-wellness escapes.
Located in Killington at the Appalachian Trail and Long Trail, New Life offers diverse terrains that will challenge hikers at every level. Because the number of guests is limited, each visitor is able to focus on his or her individual needs with the support of New Life’s superb staff, who help guests change eating, exercising and living patterns over time.
Three levels of hiking are offered each day. A nature walk, an intermediate hike and an advanced hike are provided and staffed with expert hiking guides who have extensive knowledge of the Vermont trails. No other destination spa offers the level of guided hikes that New Life Hiking Spa does. The cooler temperatures in Vermont's Green Mountains allow for hiking during the daytime hours.
New Life was also named one of the three best summer stays of 2015 by Rand McNally, one of four great weight loss spas by Health Magazine, and one of 2016’s “Affordable Spas for a Rejuvenating Getaway” by Travel + Leisure magazine.
Plan ahead and secure your spot for 2018, as New Life Hiking Spa often sells out months in advance. The 2018 dates will be May 17 - October 1.
