Adventure to the Azores with Petra Ledkovsky van Aarem

April 14 - 19

Retreat to Sao Miguel Island in the Azores, Portugal, this spring for an unforgettable week of outdoor adventure, relaxation and yoga with Petra!

With their striking beauty, sub-tropical climate, pristine beaches, gorgeous green mountains, waterfalls and hot springs, this mystical Archipelago of islands are jewels in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. Add casual, laid back European culture and cuisine and gorgeous upscale oceanfront eco-lodge accommodations, this retreat is bound to be a very special experience. 

Twice daily yoga classes taught by Petra, two hiking excursions, airport transfers, meals (with the exception of 2 lunches) and accommodations are all included in the cost.

Other optional excursions and activities include:
Visit to the geothermal hot springs
Whale and dolphin watch excursions
Kayak and SUP rentals
On-site massage and spa treatments 

Direct 4.5 hr flights from Boston to Sao Miguel are reasonably priced and our retreat center is only a 15-minute taxi ride from the airport. Super easy stress-free travel, phenomenal accommodations, adventures, yoga, cuisine, and company... Amazing, right?  We do hope you can join us!
