Wellness Retreats

The Girls’ Getaway


MAY 31st - JUNE 2nd, 2019

We’re on our way to Le Baluchon’s unique and beautiful Eco-resort for the ultimate women’s wellness getaway. For 2 nights and 3 days, you’ll be nestled in the serenity of 1000 acres of nature; taking time to slow down and relax as you indulge in some serious self-care.





Whether you’re a hard-working professional, full-time mom or busy student, this weekend provides the opportunity to take a well-deserved break. Come with friends (or enjoy some solo time) with thoughtfully planned out fitness classes, workshops and wellness activities to help you feel more connected to yourself and restored. The goal for each woman is to leave feeling motivated by the support provided from actionable tips and ideas as to how to move forward into a more vibrant and healthy lifestyle.



2019 Location


Le Baluchon’s Eco-Resort is located in the beautiful Mauricie region of Saint-Paulin, Quebec, only an hour and 45min drive from downtown Montreal. Set alongside rolling hills and the Rivière du Loup, waterfalls, enchanting forest trails and peaceful meadows, it’s often described as a place that offers ‘a sense of freedom… ‘a time to call your own’.

This approach aims to support sustainable development and integrates local artwork as well as furniture made with renewable resources to minimize the ecological footprint.

Here, we’ll enjoy exclusive access to a hot tub, sauna, a separate lounge area to rest, a conference room for workouts and an outdoor pool (weather permitting). A short walk down the path takes us to the main lodge with restaurants and access to the fitness center, indoor pool and Health Spa. (Please remember: spa services are extra)

This is your weekend to unplug and relax so if you want to stay in your pjs all day, no one will judge!
