Let us guide you

New experiences and adventures push self-perceived limitations, build confidence and show you that exercise doesn’t have to be boring. We hear from so many guests who are unsure of how to explore the outdoor world and intimidated by the unknown. They feel left out and wish they’d developed recreation experiences when they were younger.

At Skyterra, we know that adventure is for everyone. New skills can always be learned. You are never incapable of learning a new hobby, and it’s never too late to try something new.

Wellness means lifelong adventure

Our entire program supports a holistic view of wellness that helps you stay ready and resilient. Through fitness, you'll learn ways to stay strong, mobile and injury-free, so you're always ready to tackle the adventures that bring you the most joy.

During meals, our culinary team creates nourishing food that’s designed to not only taste delicious, but provide the energy you need to stay active. During our recreation outings, you’ll learn the skills of adventure.

We aim to connect you with the outdoors during your stay so you’ll leave Skyterra balanced, mindful, and enlightened with a drive to continue exploring and adventuring.
