Winter Wilderness in the Adirondacks is Paradise : The Ultimate Luxury

For some time a new definition of luxury traveling has been emerging. It is something so rare and exclusive that not many places can offer it.  Places where you can experience exceptional silence and calmness. Five star yoga retreats, in tropical surroundings are always a nice choice, but they don´t offer a chance to open up thoroughly to the healing power of nature itself, to conquer yourself and enjoy it all in luxurious surroundings. The Adirondacks offers this luxury like no other.


While you enjoy a hot toddy in front of the fireplace, in your luxurious cabin at The Point Resort, or fall asleep wrapped in your cashmere blanket, on the porch at the Lake Placid Lodge, you might not realize it right away, but it is the pace of nature that makes you calm.

In the Adirondacks, nature surrounds you. For an urban person, the lack of artificial light or the absence of other people might be quite distressing at first. In the winter, nature is silent and the thick snow absorbs almost all sounds. But then again, have you heard the wind whistling the snowy tree branches or the ice singing on the lake, as the locals describe it? Even the sounds are soothing and inevitably you will calm down and relax.

Take a snowmobile trip and drive deep into the snowy forest, take a midnight hike in snowshoes to see the moon and the stars, catch your fish of the day by ice-fishing,  or even better, go ice-swimming in a lake that is so pure that even the thought of it cleanses your body. The combination of the Adirondacks and relaxation practices is not only the core of the new luxury, but also amazingly empowering!                                        


The desire for calmness and silence is on the rise and  The Adirondacks is one of the last hidden places where nature itself will lead you to calmness. Yes, it is cold and harsh, but as the wise people say: “It is not the mountain you conquer, it´s yourself.”
