    The view from a spa tent at Paws Up Resort in Montana.

Make health and wellness a priority for your family. Here are five places where your crew can relax and recharge.

1. C Lazy U Ranch

Granby, Colo.

Slide out of the saddle and into a cozy robe at the Lazy You Spa where six luxurious, creekside tents await the sore muscles of active guests. Treat yourselves to a massage in one of two tents perched over the flowing water. Glass floors provide a clear view of the river, adding to the relaxing natural vibe. Treat your teen to a manicure or pedicure while you opt for the Cowboy Soak. Let your worries fade away as you steep in a deep copper tub and direct your attention to the stunning view of the Continental Divide just outside the folds of your canvas tent.

2. Well & Being at Willow Stream Spa

Fairmont Scottsdale Princess, Ariz.

Check in with a loved one and then check out the innovative treatments and programs ranging from Aerial Hammock Yoga to the Havasupai Falls Rejuvenation. The latter, described as the “ultimate Southwestern experience,” includes the use of desert salts infused with indigenous essential oils, promising a purifying scrub. With a focus on whole health transformation, nutrition and indigenous ingredients, you can get scrubbed, wrapped, rubbed, purified and acupunctured while learning new tips and strategies for healthier and more energetic living. Later, enjoy the relaxing rooftop pool, play golf or fish in one of three onsite lagoons.

3. Paws Up Resort

Greenough, Mont.

As a guest on this 37,000-acre ranch, you’ll spend your days horseback riding, fishing, biking, tackling the ropes course or participating in the many enrichment programs scheduled yearround. Families have access to a recreation center where kids enjoy games with newfound friends. The Kids Corp of Discovery also provides activities for youngsters. Timber and Wilderness Estate home stays, some with adjacent tent accommodations for youngsters, are also possible. Make your way to Spa Town where a boardwalk connects a series of luxurious treatment tents for soothing tired muscles. Youngsters can opt for treatments such as the Dirty Dawg Mineral Mud Wrap or the Fledgling Cotton Candy Face Massage. If your pup is in tow, he or she can get in the action with the Wag the Tail massage.
