About this trip

Dreams do come true!! Join Nancy Wind, Certified Health Coach and founder of PeaksandPoses Trail Yoga and Outdoor Adventure for an amazing retreat in one of the most beautiful places in the United States. PeaksandPoses is heading into the wilderness of Glacier National Park, otherwise known as the Crown of the continent. Rugged mountains, pristine forests, spectacular views, and over 25 glaciers await us. Glacier has been known as a hiker’s paradise and our memories and photos will reflect this. This trip will revolve around hiking, yoga, connecting, and allowing ourselves to spend time in nature to transform us in ways we don't even know yet! We'll hike daily and practice yoga, either at home or in the park.  We'll also find time to meditate, explore the area around Whitefish and chill out by the river or our fire pit. 


Oh, yea! This is gonna be the trip of our new decade!!! 

I'm so excited to be planning this trip as it was canceled in the summer of 2020 due to COVID. 


Accommodations

I always try to find the most magnificent homes. This summer our contemporary home is in the town of Whitefish (a well-known ski town) and nestled at the edge of Glacier National Park. Our home covers 2,200 square feet and is situated on 70 acres of open fields and on the bank of the Stillwater River. We also have expansive views of the mountains. Bedroom occupancy varies and one bedroom has an attached bath.  Our home has a fully stocked kitchen with an open floor plan. This year our stove sits on an island so we can hang and watch Majid our chef, cook if that interests you.  Our home also hosts a common room and an in-home theater. It is situated on a river that we access from our private dock where we can fish, swim or boat (we have a raft with an electric motor!!). We can also relax in our secluded outdoor hot tub (becoming a trademark of PeaksandPoses’ retreats) or make some campfires in the fire pit. 


Dining

All of our meals will be prepared on sight by our chef Majid. Lunch will be taken on the trail. Our meals are plant-based with inspiration and creativity from the wisdom of Ayurveda and Majid's mom's Persian cooking. We will also focus on locally sourced food when possible. Dietary restrictions can be accommodated. 


Itinerary

More details will follow once you sign up. 

The closest airport is Kalispell, Montana. 

Yup, Montana. Woohoo!!!


Hiking

There will be a daily advanced beginner to moderate hike. You should expect at least 5 miles of hiking a day. Surfaces will vary with rolling or mountainous terrain with some steep ascents/descents and uneven trails. Elevation gain will also vary. 


Trip Cancellations and Refunds

I know this is a common question people think about when signing up for a trip. It can be a big expense and you have the best intentions but somehow it's not going to work out. I want you to know that my heart and soul goes into planning our trips and I have payment deadlines to meet. Also,  as it gets closer to the retreat it's challenging to fill your spot.  For these reasons, I have established the following cancellation/refund policy.  Please make sure you can commit to this date or just sign up as it gets closer to the date (just cross your fingers that there is room). 


1. With notice of at least 90 days prior to the scheduled arrival date, you will be entitled to the full amount already paid minus your deposit of $500.

2. With notice of at least 60 days prior to the scheduled arrival date, you will be entitled to a refund less 50% of the total cost already paid.

3. With notice of 31 days from the scheduled arrival date, you will be entitled to a refund less 75% of the total cost already paid. 

4. With notice of 30 days or less prior to the arrival date, there will be no money refunded.

I am a four season peak bagger in New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine. I am exploring the Adirondacks of New York as well as Colorado 14'ers. My longest backpacking trip was 18 days on the John Muir Trail with a grand finale hiking Mt. Whitney! I am a Certified Health Coach and yoga instructor leading people to uplevel their health and reinvent themself. I am the most content outside hiking with my friends. I enjoy staying active through yoga, biking, x-country skiing and cooking seasonal plant based food.

Spring has spring and my adventure to Shenandoah State Park in Virginia to hike was amazing. Three days of hiking with beautiful scenery at White Creek Upper Falls Canyon and views of Stony Mountain Loop. Four women experienced hikers used our upper and lower body strength, and foot work to cover a vast range of boulders to see the amazing views from the top of Old Rag Mountain. We stayed in a camp site that had high end cabins to stay in. Beautiful early morning walks around the camp site. Daily yoga to keep our bodies stretched out for the next hike. Wonder full plant-based meals were prepared for the group. I came away with seeing seasoned hiking women who shared the love of nature and each other’s friendships. Thank you, Nancy, for a great hiking trip. Experienced hiker from Boston.

Nancy is an absolute fantastic organizer! Her expertise as a personal coach is admirable. Had a great experience hiking daily, feasting on Majid’s delicious meals, daily yoga, calming meditation, nightly campfires and great company. Highly recommend Nancy & PeaksandPoses outdoor adventure company!!!

Fabulous trip! This was such a well-planned week by the organizer, Nancy Wind of Peaks and Poses. I had heard about PeaksandPoses through a friend and signed up for the Colorado hiking trip having never met Nancy! It was so easy to get to know the other hikers and Nancy has the perfect combination of knowledge, experience, patience and optimism. The accommodations were spectacular. The house was clean, spacious and met all of the needs of the group. Nancy and Magid had the very best meals planned each day and they made that part seamless. We went on a variety of hikes with different terrain. I had some hiking experience and the group made me feel comfortable. During one of the hikes, I needed to take a break and Nancy's gentle guidance and pace kept me going. I highly recommend any of the hikes, classes or workshops with Peaks and Poses.

I’ve been on several weekend trips in New England with Nancy (Peaks and Poses), and when I saw that she was offering a longer retreat in Colorado, I knew I had to sign up! The trip was amazing, exceeding expectations. The home we stayed in was gorgeous with sweeping views of the Colorado mountains, the people were wonderful, the meals were delicious and healthy, and each day we had a perfect blend of outdoor physical activity plus yoga and quiet time.
