At this private wilderness destination for two couples or larger family group, you may choose from a generous list of hearty adventures or perhaps we will create a Mindfulness Retreat with morning meditation and gentle yoga followed by activities whose core is the sublime peacefulness of the setting.
As a long time yoga teacher, I have special interest in meditation techniques and yoga philosophy. Mindfulness in wild nature is a soothing balm of stress release in today’s busy world.
Your visit might start with being picked up in Anchorage by a Homer float plane pilot. While more expensive that the commercial one hour flight to Homer it offers one of the world’s most spectacular wilderness flights. You will cross only one road on the flight over mountains and glaciers and wildlife. Brown and black bear, moose, mountain goat and Dall sheep and even wolves may be seen. This allows you to go direct to Loonsong where we will be awaiting your arrival. Michael will keep his floatplane with us for your duration for safety sake. Though he is a licensed commercial pilot, your flights will be with Homer Air Taxi Services.
Michael will be there with his float plane throughout your visit.
