Ladies Wellness SUP Elk Lake Weekend
with a Saturday night cooking class by Chef Bette of Well Traveled Fork
Elk Lake is one of Oregon’s most scenic summer destinations, and one of the best locations in Bend for stand up paddleboarding. Tumalo Creek’s Ladies Wellness and Stand Up Paddleboarding weekend combines healthy activities during the day with a little bit of indulgence at night. Enjoy a day of yoga, paddling and relaxing in the sun and then retire to your luxurious accommodations where you will participate in a cooking class Saturday Night taught by Chef Bette of The Well Traveled Fork, Central Oregon’s premier catering, teaching and culinary tourism company. Her philosophy on cooking is fresh, local, organic, seasonal, and sustainable, or FLOSS for short! She’ll pick up our ingredients at the farmer’s market, so dinners will be a surprise. Look forward to a few glasses of wine and laughs with your new gal friends along the way.
We’ll start each morning with a yoga fusion session overlooking the lake: this is the equivalent of a relaxation shower for your inner body. We’ll enjoy a group paddle around Elk with all abilities welcome. If you are new to the sport, you’ll pick it up in no time.
Long-time stand up paddle surf instructor, Sue Fox, will teach some intermediate and advanced skills for those looking to step up their game; others can enjoy a leisurely paddle around the lake, exploring the forested coastline of volcanic rock and hidden inlets and beaches.
Relax in the afternoon, or take a hike around the lake or up one of the historic trails just across the highway. Complimentary massages are included with this package, so make sure to schedule this during Saturday afternoon.
This weekend is guaranteed to be a fun, relaxing and action-packed weekend that will seem like you’ve vacationed for a week, but short enough to fit into your busy schedule.
