Wander Women loves adventuring in all seasons and all types of weather, so we designed a cozy winter getaway at the beautiful Log House located within Whiterock Conservancy. Join us for an all-inclusive weekend full of relaxation, delicious in house cook-prepared meals, hikes, fire, and connection.
About the Trip
This winter getaway will take you to Whiterock Conservancy, “a 5,500 acre non-profit land trust that balances sustainable agriculture, natural resource protection and public recreation on the landscape. Located near Coon Rapids, Iowa, along seven miles of the Middle Raccoon River valley. “ Whiterock shines just as much in the winter as it does during the other seasons.
While there we will be staying in a beautiful and remote log cabin surrounded by wilderness. The roomy cabin has plenty of room to find quiet spaces to rest, read, meditate, and get away from it all. It’s the perfect winter getaway.
This all-inclusive trip includes delicious chef-prepared meals, guided hikes, fire circles, sleeping accommodations (see below for options), and much more! We do all the planning so that all you have to do is show up ready to relax, have fun, and adventure.
This trip is limited to 10 participants in order to create an intimate getaway.
