Located on a small island outside of Vancouver BC, Canada.
In terms of destinations, it’s hard to beat Vancouver and the Howe Sound region in terms of beauty, cleanliness, convenience, and safety.
The primary medicines we work with (5-MeO-DMT, and 3MMC) are unregulated substances in Canada so you can relax knowing you aren’t breaking any laws by joining us for retreat. However, we always recommend discretion about your activities when crossing the border.
Once you book your retreat, we’ll have detailed recommendations, and information to plan your trip. Our concierge and operations team can help you with anything specific you might need. For now, the information on this page will help you get a feel for our location.
A short ferry away from the world.
Enfold is located on a small island outside of Vancouver, BC. There is a public ferry that runs every 60-90 minutes out of Horseshoe Bay ferry terminal to get to us. You can walk or drive on the boat. Horseshoe Bay is a 20-30 minute drive from downtown Vancouver, or ~60 minutes from Vancouver International Airport (YVR).
There are dozens of rocky beaches, hiking, cute coffee shops, and restaurants. It’s a lovely place to decompress and enjoy the beauty of British Columbia. We recommend spending a few extra days before or after if you have the time. There are hundreds of AirBnBs on the island to choose from.
BC is a temperate part of Canada, with weather similar to Washington and Oregon state. We rarely see winter weather below 5℃ (40℉), and summer usually peaks around 25-30℃ (77-85℉).
Vancouver BC — An international destination.
Vancouver is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. It has a number of world-class restaurants, beautiful parks and beaches, and it’s surrounded by the ocean and mountains.
If you want to spend additional days in Vancouver, we’ll be happy to provide you with recommendations for restaurants, hotels, activities, and anything else you need to make your trip amazing.
Whistler/Blackcomb BC — World Class winter and summer paradise.
Whistler is one of the world’s premier locations for skiing, boarding, mountain biking, kite surfing, hiking, and pretty much any other adventure sport you can imagine. When you step off the ferry in Horseshoe Bay, you’re at the foot of the Sea To Sky Highway, which takes you up to Whistler in about 90 minutes. Squamish is also halfway to Whistler and offers incredible rock climbing, hiking, mountain biking and many other outdoor activities and is a little more of a low-key town.
Traveling by air.
There are direct flights from most major Canadian cities, and dozens of cities across the United States, Europe, and Asia. We’re 5 hours from New York, 3.5 hours from Chicago, and 2.5 hours from Denver, Los Angeles, and Salt Lake City.
Flying In (Retreats start on Wednesdays @ 6pm)
While you can typically fly in on Wednesdays and make it to Enfold in time for the start of the retreat, we encourage guests coming from farther away to fly in a day early and spend the night in Vancouver so that they can have some time to relax and decompress before the retreat. This is most relevant if you’re flying in from the lower Eastern seaboard of the US or coming from a smaller city that requires one or more stops along the way. Often guests coming from the East Coast enjoy an extra day before the retreat starts to adjust to the time zone as well.
Flying Out (Retreats wrap on Saturday @ 10am)
You can typically make it to the airport by about noon on Saturday. Generally flights leaving after 2pm are safe. However we encourage you to enjoy the weekend in BC if you feel the call.
