6 Day Hiking And Yoga Retreat In Spain

  • 6 Day Hiking and Yoga Retreat in Spain

Summary

Bring some fresh air into your practice on this 6-day yoga and hiking retreat in lovely coastal Spain. 
The daily yoga sessions are designed to complement the hikes combining the deep stretches of Hatha with the warming flow of Vinyasa and some deeply restorative and relaxing Yin Yoga.

Morning yoga sessions focus on simple flowing sequences to stretch muscles and open joints whilst synchronising your breath with movement so that your practice becomes like a calming moving meditation.

Evening classes are more restorative where you will hold postures a little longer using the breath to move deeper within and reconnect with your inner peace.

The first walk is an easy 13k guided route through quiet lanes and country tracks close to the hotel. You’ll pass country houses, crops of oranges, lemons, olives, figs and avocados before heading towards the sea and back to the hotel. 

The second is a 4-5 hour hike on a mountain - the second highest peak on the coast. But don’t worry, you'll not be climbing to the top. Instead you’ll be walking around the mountain to enjoy the full 360-degree views across the neighbouring mountains and down to the sea. 

There’s also a chance to do a 3rd self guided hike along the coast with maps provided by the team. All walks are of course optional.

When not hiking or doing yoga, the team has a few other optional activities you can join– there’s a guided bike ride, Spanish cookery workshop or, you can lay back and let the fantastic therapists pamper you with their soothing treatments and massages.


This retreat program includes -

5-night accommodation

7 x 90-minute morning and evening yoga sessions

meditation workshop with caring, experienced teachers

guided 13k 'coast and country' walk on your first morning

guided hike in the mountains with a picnic lunch

hearty buffet breakfasts

wholesome vegetarian evening suppers on all but 2 evenings

and daily herbal teas & fresh fruits to help you slowly awaken.


Plus well-being gifts to help you unwind and the services of an experienced retreat host who is constantly on hand to ensure you don't have to lift a finger.

All guests coming on their own are given their own ensuite double room.

Location

Alicante, Spain

Altea is without doubt one of the most charming towns to be found on Spain’s ‘White Coast’, located in the region of Alicante on the Costa Blanca. Retaining its own unique Spanish charm in spite of its increasing tourism and popularity, it lies directly by the sea in the midst of a beautiful bay and is surrounding by rugged mountains - really picturesque! 


Situated on a steep hillside a short walk from the sea, with stunning views over the Bay of Altea, it is a town steeped in history and has long been a popular retreat for artists, sculptors and writers. With the recent addition of the University of Culture and Fine Arts and a new concert hall Altea has been bestowed the official title of the 'Cultural Capital of the Valencian region'.


The city centre is a treasure trove of shops, craft galleries, restaurants and little white-washed buildings adorned with flowers - all waiting to be discovered in the winding and cobbled medieval lanes, look for the famous blue-domed church of the Virgin de Consuelo at the top of these lanes; it is well worth the walk, the views from the top overlooking the bay of Altea with the mountain backdrop are nothing short of spectacular!


Altea is located a ten minute drive North of Benidorm, about 1 hour from Alicante along the N-332 and is one of the most memorable coastal towns of the Costa Blanca. Alicante El Altet Airport is the closest one. Alsa Buses runs services from the airport to Altea. The town is also a stop in the Alicante Tram system.

Food

Guests have a superb buffet breakfast after morning yoga which includes a wide choice of hot & cold dishes (not all dishes are plant based at breakfast) and we dine at the hotel on all but 2 evenings during retreat where Chef prepares 3 course tasty plant based dishes for us. The retreat also includes a picnic lunch on the day we go for a walk in the mountains.

Located in the coastal town of Altea and hour along the coast from Alicante airport, this lovely little hotel has a country setting with amazing views to nearby mountains and the sea and yet, is an easy 10 minute walk to the 'old town' of Altea - considered to be one of the prettiest in this area - and just 25 minutes to the beach. 

The building is over 300 years old and began life as an olive farm before being transformed into a really special peaceful venue perfect for our yoga retreats. The 22 spacious rooms are spread over two floors and have wonderful facilities to help you unwind and relax. 

The first floor is accessed by the lift or the stairs and has single rooms, double rooms, twin rooms, a disabled friendly room, a Superior Double room with a canopy bed and a Junior Suite. Designed to enhance guest comfort and satisfaction, the hotel has balconies offer breathtaking views over the enchanting surroundings. The second floor has 7 double rooms with terrace or balcony and views to the garden, pool, mountains and surroundings.

There is a small gym and sauna, a spacious yoga studio with lovely mountain views and a restaurant that creates delicious vegetarian and fish dishes for guests whilst Vincenta – the hotel owner – brings fresh eggs from her happy hens and bakes a delicious breakfast cake for us every day – heaven!


To join this retreat, fly to Alicante Airport and from there you can join a private group transfer service with other retreat guests. Transfers to the yoga hotel take an hour & are €40 each person, each way. For flights outside of the transfer times can be organised a private taxi for guests to share or book you onto a local airport shuttle bus (€30) that calls at a stop 10 minutes easy walk to the hotel.
