For more than four decades, New Life Hiking Spa’s mission has been to allow guests to immerse themselves in a nature-based vacation that offers complete wellness programming at an affordable, all-inclusive price.
Founded in 1978, New Life was one of the country’s original wellness retreats and has regularly been recognized for being authentic, affordable, and all-inclusive. The hiking spa, located in the Green Mountains of Vermont, has been open 20 weeks a year during the peak hiking season in the Killington Region until the pandemic. During the pandemic, many of our staff and customers have turned 50! There is something special entering this decade and as we come back from the pandemic, you will find programming and hikes specifically geared towards the 50 plus guest. We have been a long time favorite of AARP (and have been included in their magazine twice). Now we will offer specialized weeks dedicated to this age bracket. As we move forward, we will be running date-specific, one-week retreats as New Life did in the 1980s. Please sign up for our Wellness50Plus newsletter to receive updates on future offerings. We will have exciting news for the 2023 season!
Over the last 40 years…
New Life has received countless accolades and been featured in articles from hundreds of news outlets, including Shape Magazine, SELF Magazine, AARP, Huffington Post, MSN, Washington Post, Washingtonian Magazine, the Boston Globe, and New York Times. It was also listed as the #1 Destination Retreat by Travel + Leisure Magazine in 2016 and featured on the Today Show. New Life Hiking Spa was named one of USA Today’s 10 Best Wellness Resorts & Retreats, placing in the top five for 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019. Despite being closed for the season the past two years, New Life was still in the top ten for 2020 & 2021 as a result of the incredible reputation garnered throughout the last forty years of business.
