Summer Expedition 2020
Journey to the heart of the Spanish Pyrenees for our coveted annual training camp slash holiday retreat!
The Summer Expedition is a Wim Hof Method deep dive and summer getaway rolled into one. Often characterized as the little brother to the Winter Expedition, the summer iteration is not quite as intense, but has all of the insight, growth, fun, friendship & love.
Over the course of 5 days, Wim Hof teaches you the power of the mind, and all the benefits that come with it, through his patented breathing technique and various trials of the cold.
Extensive, immersive breathing sessions take place under a lush canopy that shades from the mediterranean sun, with a vibrant turquoise lake as backdrop. Fill your lungs with boundless fresh mountain air as you lose sense of time and place to Wim’s hypnotizing voice.
Makeshift ice baths supplement excursions out to fresh meltwater streams, which together ensure that you are consistently spending time with the cold, conditioning mind and body.
WHM Instructors assist Wim in managing what has grown to an event numbering upward of 100 participants each week. Groups of 25-30 are assigned a lead and assistant Instructor, and each group undertakes various activities that reinforce Wim’s teachings.
The gorgeous hills, valleys, rivers and falls of the Pyrenees are explored through hikes, swims, canyoning and white-water rafting. Evenings your mental and physical energy is replenished with locally sourced, traditional Catalonian cuisine. You’re free to cap the day with cervezas and tapas at the bar, or opt for an early night’s sleep.
When you sign up for something like this, you have something to prove, something to improve, or something to remedy. While each individual has their own unique story and background, everybody is united in their belief in the power of nature, and of the human mind to rise above. Over the course of five magical days, you grow together to form an extraordinary, lasting bond, through your journey to find comfort in discomfort.
A detailed program is sent out to all participants close to the start of the event. Remember that this remains highly subject to the weather and Wim's whims.
A pack list is sent out upon registration.
