Active Adventure

Appalachian Trail Adventures (ATA) has a unique approach to health and fitness, with hiking as its core activity. Our guests are hikers who do not feel comfortable hitting the trails alone and those seeking a healthful living vacation. Our programs offer day hikes, kayaking and excursions to the most scenic Vermont villages in small group settings.

For fitness activities other than hiking, we offer excise and yoga classes. À la carte activities include Registered Dieticians, cooking demonstration, Personnel Trainers, horseback riding, canoeing, fly fishing, clay shooting, bird watching, rock climbing, caving, cycling and mountain biking.

We provide an all inclusive vacation with affordable accommodations, spa cuisine and experienced guides that will maximize this unparalleled Vermont vacation. Unlike other spas where guests spend a good deal of their time on the spa property, we encourage our guests of all physical abilities to explore Vermont.

ATA has two Registered Dietitian on staff, Rosa Donohue MS, RD, CND and Jill Corey MS, RD both have a Master of Science in Clinical Nutrition. They have created our delicious spa menu and work daily with our chefs. Our meals are a healthy balance of carbohydrates, proteins and healthy fats. We offer a vegetarian option at every meal and cater to special diets, such as vegan, wheat and dairy-free options.

HIKING PROGRAMS: The majority of our hikes are in the Green Mountain Nation Forest along the Appalachian Trail and Long Trail, the oldest long distance hiking trail in the country.

Our PEAK BAGGING PROGRAM is for those advanced hikers will have the opportunity to hike all five of Vermont’s 4,000 foot mountains. Those who summit all of Vermont’s 4,000 footers are awarded with a certificate of accomplishment. This accomplishment in the hiking community is referred to as a peak bagging.

Our VERMONT'S VISTA and VILLIAGE VACATION takes intermediate and novice hikers to Vermont’s most scenic vistas, to a waterfalls, a historical mine, or to a beautiful crystal clear lake.
