Adventure to the Azores Yoga + Hiking Retreat with Petra Ledkovsky van Aarem

April 23 - 28

**This retreat is now being sold per resort availability only. If you're interested in joining, please email with your room type preference and how many people you have in your travel group and we can assist in getting you registered.**

The greens and blues of these islands put a spell on us in 2019, so we are heading back for our second retreat at this magical location. Escape 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. 

A €500 non-refundable deposit is required to hold your spot on this retreat. The balance is due 120 days prior to departure.
