Thanks so much for stopping by. We hope to get to know each other a bit better so we thought we would tell you a little more about what you’ll find and why you will want to make TFT a daily destination.
Founded in 2014 by Skye Gilkeson, The Fit Traveller is an online platform for inspirational, aspirational and informative coverage of luxury travel, health and fitness, wellness, conscious culinary coverage, fashion and profiles of game-changers from around the globe.
Want to know how it all started? Read this first.
Don’t judge The Fit Traveller by our name alone. While we love health and wellness, we are not strictly about wellness travel. We focus on luxury travel, family and adventure travel and culinary travel too. Even better, when luxury, wellness and fabulous food come together in one big healthy holistic package, that’s perfection. At The Fit Traveller we believe in balance.
KNOW WHAT YOU’RE LOOKING FOR?
Here you will find everything from travel guides to foodie guides, packing guides, and travel itineraries for a particular destination. You will also find personal stories and anecdotes from our contributors and general interest stories relevant to customs, cultural considerations or current events happening around the world.
Looking for somewhere to relax and recharge on your next weekend getaway or longer luxury holiday? This is where you will find our featured luxury hotels and resorts. Each feature is divided into the elements we find important in a 5-star or boutique luxury property – the accommodation, the food, the amenities and what you will find if you can pull yourself away from your villa.
These are all properties we have personally stayed at. We take you there by way of a beautiful experiential narrative of our own stay, with all the information you need to book your own stay and imagery we capture ourselves while we are there.
We are very particular about who we work with because we think you should be picky about where you stay; just like us, you are busy and your time is precious.
This is where you will find features on international wellness retreats we have road-tested around the world; from grassroots, electricity-free yoga and meditation immersion in Cambodia to a luxury wellness escape in Thailand, France or Mexico. You will find first-hand authentic, experiential reviews of specific retreats and hotels and resorts that offer bespoke retreat programs for those looking for the perfect balance of both.
This section is home to those luxury touches we love. You will find beauty tips, fashion features, and gift guides, featuring the brands we love. We also feature photo gallery stories, interviews with photographers you should know and tips on how to take better photos and which cameras and accessories you should add to your travel camera kit.
We want to help you stay moving while at home and on holiday. This is where you might find interviews with fitness experts, inspiring stories, health hacks and workouts to help you stay on track to meet your health goals in the lead up to a holiday.
You will also find ways to get moving while you are travelling; from hiking to bike riding or other outdoor adventure travel activities. Exercising on holiday shouldn’t be something you dread. We help you hack it; to make your pre-trip fitness fun and something you look forward to continuing while you are on holiday.
Here you will find simple, healthy and nourishing recipes that you can try at home, your Airbnb kitchen or hotel room under Nourish.
The Fit Traveller Shop is in the process of being expanded. Currently, we feature a quarterly edit to help you pack for your next trip – pieces are wear and pieces we are lusting over, right now.
Under Tech, you will cameras, accessories and other travel tech must-haves. This is travel gear we love and a few items we currently have on our own shopping list.
