Adventure tour operator Mountain Travel Sobek is launching a series of five wellness trips with a focus on combining adventure with yoga, relaxation and mindfulness.

The five itineraries are in Morocco, Bali, Mexico's Baja California, Italy's Dolomites and Laos/Cambodia.

The trips combine challenging physical excursions such as hikes, with immersive cultural experiences and revitalizing yoga sessions and soothing spa time.

The first trip will be this November, a six-day Baja Wellness Retreat in conjunction with spa company Canyon Ranch. Guests will stay at the Los Colibris Casitas in Todos Santos, Mexico, before cruising to Isla Espiritu Santo, where they will stay in well-appointed tents at Camp Cecil. The itinerary includes yoga classes, surfing in Los Cerritos, swimming in the Sea of Cortez and opportunities for stand-up paddle boarding, bird watching, and hikes to lagoons and desert beaches. Prices start at $4,995 per person.

News of the wellness program comes one week after Mountain Travel Sobek announced a partnership with The Outbound Collective, an online adventure travel platform and app.

Users search The Outbound for hikes, campsites, after-work runs, waterfalls, swimming holes and vistas. Content is crowd-sourced from the platform's community of outdoor enthusiasts and travelers.

Under the partnership, influencers from The Outbound will participate in Mountain Travel Sobek adventures. Cobranded outings and events will be organized, and Mountain Travel Sobek's adventure travel content will be featured across The Outbound's various channels. 

Mountain Travel Sobek will also take part in The Outbound's Pursuit Series events by providing expertise on international adventure travel to The Outbound community through blog posts, trip introductions, gear kits and guide profiles.
