Day 1, October 10
We will have a 6-course welcome dinner in a small Austria village in the Alps at our European wellness resort! The accommodations are beautiful, and you will feel like you are in a storybook as you see the traditional houses flowing with flowers and the spectacular Alps towering around us. The wellness resort has a pool, outdoor swimming pond, whirlpool, sauna, steam bath, infrared light booth, and lots of amazing treatments for you to choose from (treatments not included). This is a complete wellness resort.
Day 2, October 11
Breakfast at the resort is spectacular with locally sourced and organic food! A full European breakfast with freshly baked bread, smoked meats, fresh local butter, cheese and milk, fruit, eggs, sausage, muesli, fresh fruit and more! We will have a retreat session with Robin teaching us about how to face unhealthy fear and renew and refresh our bodies and souls. We will then take a gondola up the mountain that is a 5-minute walk from the resort and watch the paragliders run off the edge of the mountain and fly away over the valley below! You can do this in your free time with an expert instructor in a tandem jump! We will then hike a rim trail that is fairly even to a 500-year-old farm that is now an Alm, a rustic restaurant that serves mountain food (soups, sausage, bread, and of course beer). The scenery is breathtaking! We will eat lunch at the Alm where all the ingredients come from the farm. If this sounds too adventurous for you have no concern. You can ride up the mountain and eat at the Alm where the gondola lands, watch the paragliders, take in the view and take the gondola down and hang out by the pool with a book or take a sauna and whirlpool!! The resort offers a light afternoon fair of soups, salads, sandwiches, fruit, coffee, and cake. We will have our 6 course locally sourced dinner at the resort.
Day 3, October 12
Full European Breakfast buffet. Then we will meet with Robin for a session on Choice, Chance & Change. Today we will journey to the end of the valley and take the gondola up 10,5oo ft to the top of the local Glacier. Have a snowball fight in July! Then come back and enjoy all that the European wellness resort has to offer! The resort offers a light afternoon fair of soups, salads, sandwiches, fruit, coffee, and cake from 1:00 to 5:00 pm. Enjoy all the wellness resort has to offer with activities, spa, sauna, whirlpool, indoor pool, and outdoor and swimming pond. We will have our 6 courses locally sourced dinner at the resort.

We will have a one-hour historical tour of beautiful Innsbruck and we will then explore its wonderful shopping, cafes and medieval alleyways! We will head back in time to have our wonderful 6 course locally sourced dinner.
Day 5, October 14
Another day enjoying the beautiful valley. We will have a session with Robin after breakfast. Over breakfast, we will plan our day’s activities, depending on group interest. Then we can hike a waterfall trail, explore a small local village, or hang out in the spa. The village church built in 1510 and rebuilt in 1770 by the Hapsburgs is a treasure. The exterior is simple but the interior of the church is magnificent with frescoes by renowned masters. If you are adventurous, we can arrange for you to paraglide off a mountain (additional fee applies)! The women on the tour who have done this say it is a life-changing experience! We will have our 6 courses locally sourced dinner at the resort.
