Health & Wellness in Saranac Lake
Saranac Lake — where exercise and fresh air are a part of daily life

Ready to try SUP? How about Yoga SUP!?

Saranac Lake's tradition of revitalizing peoples' health and well-being began in the late 1800s when Dr. E.L. Trudeau recognized that the mountainous environment seemed to provide a cure for tuberculosis.  The development of a pharmaceutical remedy for the disease in the 1950s brought the cure era to a close, yet Saranac Lake's wellness movement continues.  

Today, a broad range of services and activities are available to help enhance your health and well-being.  Whether you come to historic Saranac Lake to seek out a professional for one-on-one personal attention, including yoga or a massage, or simply to immerse yourself in the majestic mountains, paddle the gorgeous lakes, and breath the fresh air, the Saranac Lake region is the perfect setting for rejuvenation.

Health and wellness affects every part of our lives. Participating in events like cooking workshops, yoga classes, or a guided hiking outing are all great ways to enhance your quality of life. Whether you want to dine on a fabulous meal or relax in a hammock, Saranac Lake is where it's at!
