What is Wellness Travel? What is the Wellness Vacation?

The new and increasingly popular Wellness Travel niche is travel for the primary purpose of achieving, promoting or maintaining maximum health and a sense of well-being. It begins with The Intent.

Taking a Wellness Vacation is about being proactive in discovering new ways to promote a healthier, less stressful lifestyle.

It's about finding balance in one's life. The Wellness Vacation can include spa treatments, healthy eating and culinary events, activities that involve physical participation (hiking, walking, paddling, yoga and many others), inspirational outings and adventures that clear or expand the mind, and educational programs that teach us how to incorporate healthy habits into our everyday lives.

It can be as simple as taking off for a weekend to relax, refresh, re-energize and rejuvenate. Think of it as pulling off the road of life to admire a sunset when you're stuck in a traffic jam, or tearing yourself away from your laptop to water the garden, when you're up-to-your-eyebrows in deadlines.

Wellness Travel is the pause that re-energizes and rejuvenates. The Wellness Vacation is an annual tonic for body, mind and soul.
