You will start the days with pranayama and Vinyasa flow yoga. After yoga, it is time to enjoy breakfast and prepare yourself for hiking. Every day is slightly different. You will have some shorter and some longer hikes, 5-8 km, about 500-700 m.a.s.l. with amazing views. During the hikes, you will find cozy places to rest and refuel, while enjoying the lunch package. Yin and/or restorative yoga after hikes helps you to stretch your muscles and recover after hikes.
Delicious and fresh seafood bought from local fishermen and organic salads and vegetables will be prepared for dinner. You will treat yourself with freshly squeezed juices and raw chocolate that will be made together on spot. The daily yoga you do during the retreat provides a good start for the day and helps you regenerate from the physical challenges of the hikes.
This helps you stay fit and will make you return home completely relaxed after your hiking and yoga holiday. After this week, you will have experienced fantastic hiking trails, improved your yoga skills and met like-minded people. You will take lots of good memories with you and return home looking forward to your next trip.
