Day 1 - winter retreat

Day One: Gathering and Afternoon Exploration

We’ll begin our retreat in the afternoon at Northern Edge Algonquin retreat centre (arrival between 1-3pm), where we’ll settle into our cozy cabins in the forest before gathering for a welcoming orientation. Spend the afternoon getting into the winter groove, going for a skate on the lake, heading out for a leisurely snowshoe or cross-country ski, exploring the local backcountry, or simply relaxing with new friends. Then we will enjoy a gourmet dinner and following, you may choose to unwind in the wood fired sauna by the lake, settling in for a weekend of winter bliss.

*Note: Although not part of the official WWE program in 2017, if you are interested in a half-day dog sledding excursion, there is the option to join a public departure at 10am on Day 1 at Sugardogs Adventure Company before your arrival at the retreat centre.  $175pp + HST.

Day Two: Fall In Love with Winter – Snowshoeing and Cross Country Skiing

On Saturday morning, after a light breakfast we’ll start the day off with a gentle yet invigorating yoga class to warm-up our bodies. We’ll then head outside for a fun-filled day of winter adventure in the beautiful woods of Algonquin. Whether it’s a cross-country ski or snowshoe trek, or a skate on the lake, the choice is yours. After that, there will be plenty of free time to relax, self-pamper, visit the wood fired sauna and unwind. Dinner will be like an extra-special dinner date, sharing a delicious candlelit meal and divine dessert with a group of wonderful wild women!

Day 3 - winter retreat

Day Three: More winter fun!

On Sunday morning we’ll start our day once again with gentle yoga followed by a scrumptious Sunday breakfast and then head outdoors for a morning of snowshoeing or skiing on the lake. We’ll enjoy a nutritious lunch and then you will have the afternoon to enjoy your last couple of hours as you please.

After lunch, our retreat will formally wrap-up, we’ll say our farewells and you will be ready to head home by 2pm.
