Pictures from last year’s adventure retreat!


We will take in the vast desert landscape of Western Colorado by foot, exploring several trails in the area over the long weekend. There will be options for all levels including a more challenging “summit” of Mount Garfield with breathtaking views of the valley floor.

The highlight of our weekend includes a special clinic + SUP outing on the Colorado river! We will soak in the landscape as we glide down a mild stretch of the river. At the end there will be the option for a dip in the water (aka guided cold water therapy)!

Our expert local instructor will guide us through a SUP yoga session for all levels designed to relax, energize and empower us.

Did someone say Wine?!?

After a long weekend we will un-“wine” with a biking tour of Palisade stopping at various wineries and meaderies in the area for tastings and to soak in the laid back lifestyle of this small community. You will also have the opportunity to grab some fresh produce, honey and other items produced in the area by local farmers and ranchers.

Other activities:

While our schedule is full with a variety of options, you can choose which activities to participate in. If something doesn’t interest you there is plenty to do in the area including:

  • Unwind: Massage therapist and spa services will be available. We will provide details on how to schedule a therapeutic treatment.
  • Play: The Inn has a lovely outdoor pool and hot tub, bring your suit!
  • Explore the town: Pick-up some fresh produce at nearby farmers stands, pickup some local honey or famous Palisade peaches!
  • Relax: Read a book by the pool or grab a local Colorado brew, cider or glass of wine from the bar.

About the venue:
