Award-winning vacation, established in Vermont over 40 years ago

New life hiking spa is a lot like “summer camp”, but with a room instead of a sleeping bag

Remember “Summer Camp” in your youth?  For many, those were the best days of our childhood.  Waking up to an exciting day fill with outdoor activities, bonding with your camp counselor, coming back to eat lunch with the new friends you met while on the hike, taking a class in the afternoon, and getting back outdoors with kayaking or just enjoying nature.  The feeling of invigoration from hiking and nature will come back at New Life Hiking Spa, even if it has been decades!  However, instead of coming back to a cabin or tent with a sleeping bag, you will enjoy your own private room at a Vermont lodge.  Your freshly prepared meals will be served in a dining room instead of around a campfire.  Best of all, one of your afternoon activities can be a massage.  It’s like summer camp, only much better.

The highlight is the great outdoors and hiking is the focus

With one-of-a-kind access to Green Mountain National Forest, the Long Trail and the Appalachian Trial, New Life Hiking Spa is all about reconnecting with nature and finding balance in one of Vermont’s most beautiful regions.
