Keto Spa Retreat

The Keto Spa Retreat is a one of a kind event that combines amazing presentations and education about the Keto and Carnivore Lifestyles with relaxation and nature. Too many conferences are stuck in windowless rooms and we wanted to change that. The Keto Spa Retreat is at the world renown Sundara Spa in Wisconsin Dells. This facility has amazing grounds and pools to enjoy and we made sure to give you time to enjoy them or get a special spa treatment.

We also have VIP tickets that give you access to a VIP dinner on the first night and a VIP hiking tour of Devil’s Lake (Maria’s favorite hiking spot) on the last day.
