Empty your busy mind with meditation
Time to tuck away your to-do list! After one of Echo Valley’s meditation sessions in their Baan Thai (Thai home), you’ll be sinking into a harmonious state that leaves you feeling like you can fully experience each moment, as it happens.
Sip hot cocoa while stargazing
Appreciate the absence of urban light pollution under the gorgeous night sky, tucked in a cozy blanket with a cup of hot cocoa or tea in your hand. All you have to do is look up!
Snowshoe or hike through forest trails
Strap in for a low-impact walk through the winter wonderland around the ranch, or half-day hike through wooded trails, wonderful vistas and the historic remains of the Reinhardt Shipping Company.
Learn wilderness survival skills
This half-day course with Echo Valley’s expert guides will teach you a series of survival techniques, like finding a water source, building a fire, scavenging for edibles and even building a shelter. The end of the day caps off with a lesson on finding your way back home, using the sun and landmarks for directions.
Bond with Echo Valley’s herd of horses
You’ll be pleasantly surprised just how fast you can build a connection with these beautiful animals! Accompanied by a guide, you can get familiar with the herd of horses enjoying the winter out in the pasture, learn how to read their body language and communicate with them through intuition.
Channel your inner lumberjack with some axe throwing
After an introduction on how to safely handle and throw an axe, it’s time to spark your competitive nature and hurl as many one-handed or two-handed bullseyes as you can!
Also available for an additional charge are Echo Valley’s spa services, inspired by both classic European and authentic Thai therapies.
