Terra & Tu Unveils New Style of Wellness Travel

Wellness adventure company Terra & Tu has unveiled details of its new wellness adventure, shifting the focus from the activity itself—such as the intensive yoga retreats and restrictive fasting schemes of wellness trips—to being present in a destination and experiencing the variety of physical and mental fulfillment a place has to offer.

“While traditional wellness trips often focus on deprivation meant to lead one to wellness, we take the opposite approach believing that true wellness is not about denying yourself the pleasures of life, but enriching your mind, body and soul with positive experiences,” says Finlay Bressler, founder and president of Terra & Tu. “Focused on creating meaningful connection with the culture and heritage of Tuscany through guided exploration, having outstanding culinary experiences, and measured but impactful yoga, meditation and spa sessions, in the most beautiful settings, here at Terra & Tu our wellness adventures are about fulfillment.”

The eight-day “Tuscany Wellness Adventure” guided tour departs from Florence, spending two days at Terme di Saturnia Spa and Resort, famed as the location of the medicinal hot springs of the ancient Romans. Next, guests will make their way to Terra & Tu’s private Tuscan villa near the hilltop village of Asciano. From this location, guests will enjoy six days exploring medieval hilltop villages and hiking trails with local guides, tasting the region’s wines, and relaxing at the villa with yoga mornings and culinary afternoons that feature a range of cheeses, honey, pasta and local produce.

Far from the typical tourist route, the “Tuscany Wellness Adventure” offers the right balance of activity and relaxation leaving travelers rejuvenated, enriched and energized. Guests who want more self-guided meditation or relaxation time may opt to forgo excursions beyond the villa on most days.

Departure dates available this year: September 2, 9, 17, 24 and October 7, 14, 2023. For more information, visit www.terraandtu.com.
