Sophie Benge



Bathe in mud and mineral water, unload your stress in the banya, pick mushrooms in the forest and visit sanatoriums unchanged since the Soviet era. The wellness traditions in this region are powerful, rooted in nature and wrapped up in cultural history.

My tours take you off the tourist grid and introduce you to unique experiences and passionate experts, thanks to the months I spent on the road for my book, Healing Sources - Spas and Wellbeing from the Baltic to the Black Sea.

The next tour will go to Latvia in Spring 2019. If you'd like to know more click here

What a fun, interesting and enlightening few days to explore a small part of a really beautiful country. The warmth of the local people was obvious in their affection for Sophie and took us into their hearts and looked after us. We were welcomed everywhere we went and the days were filled with sightseeing, good food, great facts but more importantly extraordinary traditional unique spa experiences. I cannot wait for my next trip with Sophie.
