Shed your stress and soak up the views on a retreat atop New England’s highest peak. Symmetree Yoga starts its Mount Washington Yoga Adventure retreats this spring, led by yoga instructors and experienced mountain guides. Go on a guided hike or drive to the top of the 6,288-foot peak, practice yoga and meditation amid the mountain vistas, and then hike back to the car or down through White Mountain National Forest to Pinkham Notch. Two-night packages include daily breakfast and dinner, a boxed lunch, yoga instruction, a massage, and lodging at Peace With-Inn Bed and Breakfast (www.peacewithinn.com) in nearby Fryeburg, Maine. Retreats start at $390 per person (with massage) or $325 (without), based on double occupancy. 603-662-8664, www.symmetreeyoga.com
