Wellbeing Escapes Fitness and Hiking Retreat in Greece

Dikastika, Greece

Overview

We have teamed up with retreat company Nefeli Nine to bring you a taste of the real Greece. The concept is based on emulating the lifestyles in 'Blue zones' where people live longer and better lives. The main pillars of the retreats are a healthy, mainly plant based diet, daily guided hikes exploring the flora and fauna of the beautiful Greek countryside and coastline and stress release practices such as yoga or massage. Plus there are some special treats like a visit to a traditional Greek fish taverna and an organic farm for a real taste of Greece. This retreat is for those who want to experience the sights, sounds and smells of Greece while keeping active and relaxing the mind. There are limited spaces so contact us to register your interest.

** Please note that retreat runs in 2021 on 18 - 24 April , 9 - 15 May, 30 May - 5 June, 20 - 26 June**

Highlights

The retreat has been designed to keep you moving and invigorated but without including endless routines of tedious exercise.  You will start your day with a yoga session to wake up your body in a gentle way and after a healthy breakfast head out for a 3 - 4 hour hike taking in the breathtaking scenery.  After lunch there is an optional fitness class with a personal trainer if you want more targeted fitness. Afternoons are free for you to enjoy - have a nap, read a book by the pool, or just simply do nothing. 


All the activities are suitable for any age or fitness level as the programme can be modified for those who need it.  This is not a bootcamp, so if you want to opt out of any of the activities and relax around the pool or take a dip in the sea the choice is yours. 

The food is wholesome and healthy and wine is available with dinner if desired.


Maximum group size is 10 participants per retreat. Minimum is 4.
