Escape to Nature with these Truly Zen Travel Experiences
Yoga, free diving, hiking, glamping. The reset you need in 2021.
The simple joy and freedom of nature, physical activity and abundant space have never felt so valuable as now. The ultimate new luxury is being grounded and appreciating nature in its raw, most beautiful form. Here are three such experiences for your Australian travel bucket list in 2021.
Glamping & Hiking, Margaret River
Hike the stunning Cape to Cape Track, a 124km coastal track that runs the length of the world famous Margaret River wine region, meandering through towering forests, dreamy white-sand beaches, six hundred-million-year-old granite cliffs and marble. The scenic coastal paths are lined with over 7,000 endemic species including iconic orchids and wildflowers. Sleep under the stars in bell tents on pads made from local limestone, helping to balance your alkalinity while you sleep. The furniture and fittings are made from hand-crafted timber. Unpowered tents provide the perfect opportunity to switch off and get back to nature. Find out more at Cape to Cape Explorer Tours.
Freedive & Yoga, Exmouth
Freediving fuses mindfulness and zen, some say it is a moment without time. Where better to freedive than one of the earth’s most beautiful underwater playgrounds, Ningaloo Reef. Learn the fundamental knowledge and techniques of freediving, interspersed with restorative yoga. By night, a stunning AirBnB by the ocean is the place to share tales with new, likeminded friends. The four-night retreat runs twice in 2021. Align your retreat with the June to September whaleshark season and extend your visit for the unique opportunity to swim with these majestic ocean giants.
