Wim Hof Method Scottish Breaks - Join the Movement!

Wim Hof Method Scottish Breaks - Join the Movement!


Optimize your body and mind using cold exposure to practice breathing techniques and change your mind set!


The world famous Wim Hof (a.k.a. The Ice Man) Method is based on three pillars: cold therapy, breathing and commitment. Mastering these pillars and learning how to combine them, will result in a multitude of benefits, such as increased energy and focus, enhanced mental and physical performance, sleeping soundly, greater cold tolerance and a creative mind.

Alladale Wilderness Reserve in the heart of Sutherland, northern Scotland, is the perfect place to learn all about this popular method. You will be staying at one of the UK's most remote properties, a recently refurbished but simple 150-year old lodge set on the 23,000 acre Alladale Wilderness Reserve. Here you are a world away from the norms of life, the perfect setting to take on board this fascinating set of new life skills.

You will not find anything like it anywhere in the United Kingdom, these workshop style weekends and short-breaks are unique in many ways, not least the skills you are learning.

Master this incredibly powerful, life-enhancing way of living, through either one of our 3-day fundamentals workshops, a 5-day WHM adventure, or a very challenging 8-day retreat. On your WHM escape at Alladale Wilderness Reserve, you will surely experience something unlike anything you've done before!


Find your Inner Fire with the help of certified WHM instructor Allan Brownlie. The Edinburgh-based Scot and certified WHM instructor (Allan has been taught by Wim Hof himself) will guide you through the process of optimizing body and mind, using cold exposure to practice breathing techniques and change your mind set. He will also teach you how to implement these techniques into your daily routine and highlight the benefits which fast become obvious. 

You will learn:

– How to be the manager of your energy

– How to feel energised and full of life within minutes

– How to boost your body’s alkalinity for super fast recovery
