Return to the

Science has proven time spent in nature has a meaningful impact on our wellbeing. At arcana, we invite you to reconnect with the wonder of the outdoors and the super powers of nature. 

Bridging wellbeing
and the wild

We’re on a mission to create experiences rooted in
science and good for the soul.


For Body
and Soul

Your stay will be filled with moments that are mentally and physically nourishing. Time in nature decreases both the stress hormone cortisol as well as blood pressure.

Backed by Science

We offer science-based experiences that maximize the calming and restorative benefits of nature. Research shows interacting with the wild is a critical component of our mental and emotional wellbeing.

In Solitude, Together

The arcana experience is designed to be enjoyed in solitude. While you won’t need to interact with anyone during your stay, you’ll return home feeling more connected than ever.

What’s included in my stay?

Your booking includes everything you’ll need to experience the wild. We provide fresh linens, plush towels, toiletries, running water, cooking essentials (olive oil, salt, pepper), complimentary coffee and tea, and yes, even wifi. Outside the cabin, you have access to a private deck with a fire pit and outdoor seating, as well as a sauna and over 15km of trails.

Is there a minimum length of stay?

We have a minimum stay of two nights because we strongly believe you need at least a couple nights to unwind and really sink into the magic of the wilderness.

Is it safe to stay at your cabins during the pandemic?

The safety and wellbeing of our guests are our top priority. We’ve designed an easy self check-in experience to promote social distancing and solitude during your stay. We’ve also implemented deep cleaning practices in accordance with CDC guidelines to ensure our cabin is thoroughly sanitized between guests.
