Sept. 24th to 29th 2017          |          Nov. 5th to 10th 2017

This retreat is an adventure that will give you thrilling moments and exciting memories to last a lifetime. Our Adventure & Yoga Retreat includes daily Pranayama classes, Ashtanga classes in the morning, exciting activities in the beautiful settings of Cadiz (kayaking, stand-up paddle, horse riding, hiking, cycling), restorative yin yoga classes in the early evening, evening workshops and three delicious vegetarian meals per day.

Each activity is varied and different; we do not set a strict daily itinerary because we like to choose the right activity for the right day. Each activity will take around two and a half hours.

Horse riding day.
Our stables sits on the edge of the spectacular natural park of La Breña y Las Marismas del Barbate Natural Park, which consists of forest, salt marshes, steep cliffs and miles of sandy beach. La Breña y Marismas del Barbate Natural Park is the second largest coastal reserve in Andalusia and a major attraction for equestrian lovers. We will ride along the edge of the forest and down onto the long sandy beaches of Cape Trafalgar.

SUP day (Stand-up paddle).
The district of Caños de Meca is dotted with quiet and clean beaches whose shores are gently touched by green and blue waters. Beautiful small bays are hidden all along the coast from Cape Trafalgar to La Breña y Las Marismas del Barbate Natural Park. The best way to enjoy these waters and reach these remote beaches is by taking to a kayak or SUP board.

Kayaking day.
El Palmar is an endless stretch of white sand beach that goes on as far as the eye can see. There are no high-rise concrete hotel blocks. The blue and limpid waters, fine sand, chilled out environment and great surf conditions have made it the most celebrated beach in all of southern Spain for kayakers.

Hiking day in the countryside.
The rolling hills of the countryside offer fantastic views to walkers, as we hike over ancient drovers’ roads and cattle tracks. We will pass old monasteries and walk through the sleepy Andalusian hamlet of San Ambrosia, which has remained untouched for centuries. According to archaeological sites found so far, the hermitage of San Ambrosio dates back to Roman times. We will also visit El Palomar de la Brena, the largest dovecote in the world.

Cycling day.
Each cycling day will be varied and different, as we like to choose the right ride for the right group. One trip includes a ride to the fishing town of Bolonia, famous for its giant 30-metre-high sand dune and its 4km long beach. With Roman ruins and grazing cattle nearby, this secluded beach is stunningly beautiful. On the sunniest days, you can even see the African coast.

A small adventure group (never more than six people) will be accompanied at all times by our experienced guides.
There could not be a better way to experience all that Cadiz’s magnificent nature & culture have to offer!
