Wild Wellness Fire and Ice Walk

Discover wild wellness through fire and ice.

Here’s your chance to experience what Wild Wellness is about through journaling, meditation, mountain water dipping and connecting to nature. Discover the wonders of kunanyi / Mt Wellington like never before. Listen to the stories of the mountain’s history and unique plants and animals all in the care of knowledgeable local guides. Be coached through Wim Hof Method breathwork and icy river plunge (by Piet, trained by Wim Hof himself) followed by writer-led journaling beside a roaring fire and mountain stream.

The small group experience visits North West Bay River which collects its crystal waters from kunanyi’s alpine plateau. We’ll head off along the Cathedral Rock Track following the gurgling mountain river for about 2km. Once we’ve settled in on the river bank we’ll have an extended break for our breathwork and cool river plunge (not compulsory but will ignite every sense!) After returning along the track fully refreshed, enjoy a gourmet burger lunch. It’s a hearty Tasmanian affair with plump burgers and local flavours on the menu including East Coast cheeses and Pigeon Hole Baker treats to keep you going.

Not sure what to expect. Read about our 2021 retreat in the SMH and 5 reasons why you should join us on the mountain!

If you are intending to participate in the ice bath please bring your own towel and spare thermal top and long johns.
