Today you will be welcomed and picked up at Inverness Airport (if you are flying in), alternatively you will rendez-vous at the main lodge area of Alladale Wilderness Reserve in Sutherland.

Alladale Wilderness Reserve is an area of over 23,000 acres of some of Scotland's most remote terrain - the perfect place to get away from the rest of the world on an immersive and educational learning experience with your Wim Hof Method workshop. The reserve is home to some of Scotland's most ancient and special species of flora and fauna. You will feel this on approach as you travel through some of Scotland's most precious forest - the last remnants of the once great Forest of Caledon or Caledonian Forest. Look out for Red Squirrels in the pine canopy or salmon leaping at the rumbling falls on the river by the road... 

On arriaval you will be met by the group leader and instructor of your course who will introduce you to the others on the workshop. Once you have gone through some initial breifing from your instructor Allan Brownlie, you will get ready for your first exciting challenge - you will be setting off to your accommodation and lodge, this is a 7km trek through a breathtaking Scottish glen. From here on in you are in for a treat - the rest of the weekend is a real eye-opening, learning curve where you learn some remarkable skills and gain a unique understanding of the capbilities of your own body when combined with the power of your own mind. 

Let the Wim Hof Method workshop begin!

Today you will wake up in the heart of the Scottish wilderness once more. Drink in the fresh air and take a ice bath in the melt water of a fast flowing burn only a few hops from your lodge. This morning you will be enjoying a final breakfast together as a group before some final guidence and instruction from your qualified Wim Hof Method instructor. You will then be setting off on your final challenge, a 7km hike back to the main lodge at Alladale Lodge.

Your experience is our priority

Everyone can participate to their own ability and level of comfort. It is all about fun, new experiences and learning. If you have any health conditions or concerns please contact us beforehand.

How to prepare:

If you are new to cold exposure, you can start practicing by finishing your warm shower with 30-60 seconds of cold water only. Begin with your feet and then follow with your legs, your stomach, shoulders, neck and back. Focus on calming down your breath.

Don’t put your head under the cold shower, it is better to skip the cold shower on the head for the first month. This way you will become more familiar with the way your body reacts to the cold.

Accommodation:

Participants will be staying at the wonderful yet simple Deanich Lodge, staying in shared rooms with bunk beds and single beds.
