Antigua and Barbuda are inviting visitors and residences to immerse themselves in the destination’s enriching wellness experiences as part of Wellness Month, featuring a host of events and activities in January 2024.

Hosted by the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority, Antigua and Barbuda Wellness Month offers those seeking to enhance their quality of life a selection of carefully curated activities in resorts and in local communities, ranging from wellness retreats, spa experiences, hiking trail exploration, off-shore island excursions with yoga on secluded beaches, culturally immersive experiences and healthy eating options.

CEO of the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority, Colin C. James said: “Antigua and Barbuda has a wealth of natural attributes, and skilled wellness service providers. There is plenty to do and uncover in Antigua and Barbuda for those hoping to enrich their mind, body, and soul, and we cannot wait to wow in January.”

The Four Corners of Antigua and Barbuda Hiking Challenge, with Wadadli Trailblazers offers outdoor exploration within Antigua and Barbuda’s national parks and lush, rolling hills. Four hikes with varying degrees of difficulty will take place over the month with hikers trekking to the historic Fort Barrington, picturesque Gaynor’s Bay, and Signal Hill in addition to Barbuda’s unique Darby Cave.

Meanwhile, the 7 Minute Ice Bath Challenge organized by organic wellness haven, Wellness Footprints Antigua operated by Antigua and Barbuda 2023 Wellness Champion and Wellness Ambassador Tricia Greenaway will highlight the benefits of an ice bath.
