Hiking & Yoga Retreat, 7-15 May 18

Welcome to a Hiking and Yoga Retreat on the beautiful Greek Island, Karpathos. We will take you on a wonderful journey through the Island’s valleys and mountains, spectacular beaches, and traditional villages, and together we will enjoy our morning yoga practice suitable for beginners and advanced practitioners alike.

During the Retreat, you will be surrounded by warm spring sun, magnificent nature, turquoise sea and clear blue sky. It is very hard not to fall in love with Karpathos in the spring, which is why most of our guests come back for more year after year.

We care about our health and our bodies, so we have a strong focus on healthy eating. Still, the food needs to be tasty and exciting! Our wonderful chef will prepare lovely Mediterranean dishes which we will enjoy under the shade of pine trees or on the terrace overlooking the ocean. There will be a variety of food being served, but always with vegetarian options for those of you who wants that.


There will be plenty of opportunities to spend time alone if you need this. There are several hammocks between the trees around the Retreat, or you can relax by the sea, which is just a few meters away from where you live.

There will be time for swimming and sunbathe too. We have two beaches within walking distance from the Retreat.


Our physiotherapist will be at the Retreat whenever we need him;

a massage from him is highly recommended. The massages take place outside, under the shade of beautiful pine trees, and it is a wonderful experience! The massage treatments are not included in the price.


This Retreat is perfect for people who wants to enjoy nature and peace and who need to recharge their energy. The walks will take around 3 to 4 hours (clear time of walking). You will need proper hiking shoes. Hiking sticks can be borrowed.
