The Great Escape: Canadian Wellness

Herbal wraps, clay packs, Yoga classes and spa cuisine may not be typical guest ranch fare, but then The Hills Health & Guest Ranch in British Columbia is not your typical guest ranch. Situated in the rolling plains of the Cariboo, about 4 hours north of Whistler/ Blackcomb, The Hills is one of Canada's most comprehensive wellness centers. Get your fix of the great outdoors hiking the 94-mile trail system, riding the range on horseback or trolling for fish on one of five nearby lakes.

Then follow up outdoor activities with supervised weight training, aquatics, spa treatments, beauty care, physio-therapy, and nutrition and relaxation programs. There are also various culinary offerings, compliments of Executive Chef Anna Tanner. Enjoy Swiss-style gourmet and low-calorie spa cuisine, or try how-to shopping and cooking workshops. By stay's end, you'll look and feel as fit as a fiddle.

Packages abound here, from two-night weekend "run-aways" ($193) to five-night golf-and-ride holidays ($422-$476) to comprehensive 30-night weight loss specials ($2,517). Access is via Vancouver.
