Wim Hof Method

Find your inner fire at Alladale

October 2019 trough April 2020

The world famous Wim Hof (a.k.a. The Ice Man) Method is based on three pillars: cold therapy, breathing and commitment. Mastering these pillars and learning how to combine them, will result in a multitude of benefits, such as increased energy and focus, enhanced mental and physical performance, sleeping soundly, greater cold tolerance and a creative mind.

Alladale Wilderness Reserve is the place to learn all about this method, and you will not find anything like it anywhere in the United Kingdom. Either through a 3 day fundamentals workshop, a 5 day WHM adventure, or a very challenging 8 day retreat, you will experience something unlike anything you have done before!

Find your Inner Fire with the help of certified WHM instructor Allan Brownlie. This Edinburgh-based Scot will guide you through the process of optimizing body and mind, using cold exposure to practice breathing techniques and change your mind set. He will also teach you how to implement these techniques into your daily routine.

Learn more about the WHM and its creator through a series of videos here.


Deanich Lodge, one of the most remote buildings in Scotland, will be our base for all events. Deanich is the perfect spot for a true off the grid experience with an inward focus. Located 7 miles from Alladale Lodge, the bunkhouse’s setting is absolutely stunning and will help you to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
