A female-only community is opening this year on a beautiful private island retreat, in the Baltic Sea just off the coast of Finland.

SuperShe Island will open in September 2018 and offers women of all ages the opportunity to care for themselves through fitness, nutrition, creativity nurturing and more. In essence, it's a wellness utopia for women that focuses on health, innovation and self-care.

What is SuperShe?

SuperShe is a worldwide network of women that come together in a community that centres on thought, collaboration and growth. The organisation hosts many events and meetings throughout the world but the Finnish island is the first permanent physical space where the women can come together and recharge. It's the official headquarters of the SuperShe society.

The founder of SuperShe, Kristina Roth, said: 'The island was created as a place where members of our community could gather, our very own bat cave.'

Women from all walks of life are involved and welcome, from adventurers and pioneers to artists and athletes. The only requirement is a desire to want more, for yourself and for your community.

Non-members of SuperShe can also book time on the island depending on availability.

The island, which is open all year round, covers 8.4 acres and can host 10 people at a time. There are four newly renovated cabins, which were featured in Vogue, all equipped with spa amenities, Finnish saunas, and facilities.

Daily activities available on the island include yoga, meditation, farm-to-table dining, cooking classes, fitness classes, and nature activities.

'Women need to spend time with other women. Being on vacation with men can be draining and demanding,' Kristina said.

'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.'

A stay on the island start at $3,500 (£2,500) per week and include meals, accommodation, and activities.
