"See what all the buzz is about - join a Bee the Wellness adventure retreat!"

I’m a new Bee (buzz buzz) and was a first time wellness explorer on the New Zealand adventure . What an adventure it was! Vanessa and Adam introduced us to something new and exciting every day. They even managed to throw in a few unscheduled adventures. I’m pretty sure we hiked, rafted, jet boated, caved, imbibed, smelled, ate and soaked up more of the country than most New Zealanders! If it was possible by land, air, river, sea or raft - we did it!

The accommodations and dining were A+. The planning and scheduling were smooth. And the cherry on top - when I arrived in New Zealand to begin my adventure with 18 ‘strangers’ – I ended up returning home with 18 new friends. See what all the buzz is about - join a Bee the Wellness adventure retreat!

"All you do is show up, make new friends and have fun."

I went on the Bee The Wellness New Zealand adventure vacation, and it was incredible. Our group went on an adventure everyday, including white water rafting, beautiful hikes, tubing in caves, riding in a speed boat, exploring rock formations in thermal waters, swimming under a warm waterfall and more.

The food was healthy and delicious, and Adam and Vanessa took special care of everyone's dietary needs and preferences. The hotels were great, and the people on the trip were awesome. I made many friends on the trip. I highly recommend Bee The Wellness trips to everyone who wants to have a great vacation. Adam and Vanessa take care of all the details. All you do is show up, make new friends and have fun.

"The Bee the Wellness New Zealand retreat was one of the most exciting, well put together retreats I have ever been on."

You will experience so much of the amazing fun and beauty that New Zealand offers.

This adventure was action packed with activities you most likely have never done or even thought of doing in your lifetime. The entire event was planned flawlessly with nothing left to chance. Show up with your gear and a great attitude and that's it.

The people you will meet on a Bee The Wellness retreat are some of the finest people you will meet anywhere. Everyone is like minded in the sense that they are all trying to experience life to the fullest. You can’t ask for a better group of people to spend a week with and I always leave forming lasting bonds!

"It would have taken me months to do all the planning for this trip"

This trip was a perfect balance of beautiful scenery, fun adventures of all sorts, great food, great wine, and the added bonus of quality humans to share the experience with.  Everything was seamless, organized and according to plan, and carefully researched to ensure we got the absolute best of the best.  It would have taken me months to do all the planning for this trip, so I really appreciated being able to just show up and fall into step with the well executed plan, which far exceeded my expectations.  I feel so lucky to have been a part of it, and made wonderful friends that I still keep in touch with.

"There is no better way to vacation/explore than with this group."

The very best thing about the Bee The Wellness events are the quality of people that they attract to them. The settings are always beautiful, but the other attendees are really what makes it so all special. By the end of the event, you are feeling better in both mind and spirit. There is no better way to vacation/explore than with this group.
