Welcome to Renew Retreats: holistic hiking retreats and outdoor education for womxn. We are excited that you’re here! You’re one step closer to waking up in the mountains, hiking with confidence, and enjoying good food with new friends. 

Whether you are a new hiker or a seasoned adventurer, Renew Retreats has an outdoor adventure designed for you. Our holistic hiking retreats will empower you to be brave in the outdoors, connect you with like-minded womxn, and help make hiking part of your lifestyle. We also want you to relax in style! Our retreats are a chance for you to explore the outdoors, without roughing it. Cosy cabins and comfy beds included.

We launch in Vancouver, BC this month and would love to see you at an upcoming event:
