ET Spring Training Camp SOLVANG – April 25–29, 2019




After four years of Spring Camps in Arizona, we are excited to announce Experience Triathlon’s 2019 Spring Training Camp will return to Santa Barbara Wine Country – one of the top wine regions in the world!  Camp will be held April 25– April 29 in the Santa Ynez Valley, located approximately 30 miles outside of Santa Barbara and about a 2.5 hour drive from Los Angeles.


Whether you’re looking for an active, fitness oriented vacation with plenty of post-workout relaxation time or a more intense multisport training and educational experience, ET Spring Camp is the perfect option.


Once again, we will be staying in the quaint and charming town of Solvang, designed to look like a genuine Danish village.  You will think you are in Europe as you savor the old-world ambiance and fragrance of fresh Danish pastries while strolling the streets of Solvang after a long day of training.  Join us as we enjoy scenic backcountry roads alongside sun-draped vineyards, oak-studded rolling hills, vibrant wildflowers, and majestic mountaintops – California wine country awaits!


New this year is our home base for Spring Camp.  We will be staying at the Hotel Corque (pronounced Cork), a luxury boutique hotel nestled in the heart of wine country.  From the hotel’s rustic but modern design, distinctive decor and courteous staff, Hotel Corque exemplifies the relaxed nature of wine country.  Setting the standard in lodging among Solvang luxury boutique hotels, Hotel Corque offers the ultimate in relaxation and comfort.  Conveniently located in downtown Solvang, you’re just steps away from enjoying the many bounties of the Santa Ynez Valley.
