How about ditching your evening gowns and the fluorescent-lit ballrooms in exchange for a private island banned for men?

It turns out that a women-only island where ladies from all over the world can get together, socialize and take care of their body and soul without any formalities is actually a thing. Hidden away in the Baltic Sea, off the coast of Finland, it’s called SuperShe Island and it is the headquarters of an international women society lead by entrepreneur Kristina Roth.

The island

The 8.4-acre island fitted for ten ladies is home to four newly renovated Nordic-style cabins, spa facilities and green forests where you can pick blueberries. All of this only 90 minutes from Helsinki.

The daily wellness activities include yoga, meditation, farm-to-table dining, cooking classes, fitness classes, nature activities.

“Women need to spend time with other women. Being on vacation with men can be draining and demanding. We want SuperShe Island to be rejuvenating and a safe space where women can reinvent themselves and their desires. A place where you can recalibrate without distractions,” says the founder of SuperShe Island, Kristina Roth.

The founder

Kristina Roth is an entrepreneur turned kiteboarder and world traveler who believes her mission is to bring successful women from around the world together.

“My biggest fear is not living up to my own idea of what I should be and how I should act and where I want to be at a certain point in time.” If you hear your own words in Kristina’s quote, this might be your place.

How to get there

To get there, first you need to apply for a membership to the SuperShe society and wait until June 2018 when the island will be open for its (exclusive) guests.

    This is wonderful idea.  I have felt for years that if we could just send all women to their own island, the world would be a better place.
