Most resorts offer a retreat for relaxation and luxury, however, outsource their adventure to other companies in the area. One resort in Washington has made its name by providing the best of both worlds: R&R and on-site adventure. At Skamania Lodge, you’ll get to step outside of your comfort zone with high-flying zip lines and a thrilling aerial park and enjoy all your favorite spa and fitness experiences with a nature-inspired twist.
With several different zip lines ranging from 100-900 feet in length and three sky bridges, the resort’s 2.5-hour long Canopy Zipline Tour is a non-stop flying adventure through the rain forest. The tour will have you soaring over the scenic Columbia River Gorge and get up close and personal with the surrounding Douglas Firs. If you’re looking for something slower-paced, venture into the Aerial Park which features nineteen platforms with unique climbing features. The best part is that you can explore the park at the freedom of your own pace.
Spa Treatments with a Twist
Only 45 minutes outside of Portland, Skamania Lodge has embraced its location deep in nature by creating some nuanced spa experiences that reflect the region. Experience a relaxing massage with Columbia River Rocks that wind through the property. The spa also has the option to incorporate Portland-based CBD products like cool relief balms, oils, and facial cleansers in many of their treatments. They offer a spa special every weekday, so be sure to check out their menu to discover their latest promotional treatments.
Forest Infused Fitness
When you’re on vacation, sometimes the last thing you want to do is be cooped up in a gym trying to break a sweat. That’s why Skamania Lodge developed their Gorge Loop Fitness Trail, a 0.9-mile loop outside that features fitness equipment and strength and conditioning exercises. Now you can work out to the sounds of the Columbia River and feel the high of freshly oxygenated air from the surrounding greenery. Those looking for a zen experience can join in on Sunday Sunrise Yoga, where you can practice your poses against the backdrop of the Columbia Gorge Mountains.
Gorges, rivers, forests, and mountains make Skamania Lodge an ideal destination for nature-lovers looking to balance fun outdoor activities with the calming effects of Mother Earth.
