Full Description

Asturias, Spain’s best-kept secret and home to Hotel Fuentes de Lucía, your perfect mountain retreat. Our dynamic retreats, which combine yoga and hiking, will include twice daily yoga classes with certified instructors from around the globe and local hiking guides who all share their passion with us here in our oasis of serenity and calm. Surrounded by dramatic peaks, deep gorges, and crystal clear rivers, there is nowhere better to breathe in the pure mountain air and stretch your limbs than at our restored farmhouse and yoga studio.

Begin the day with an early morning yoga practice followed by a hearty breakfast in the main dining room, formerly a mill, before the day’s hiking adventure unfolds. We walk beautiful mountain trails, averaging approximately 15 kilometers per day, accompanied by friendly and knowledgeable guides who will fill our days with a soulful blend of scenic hiking, historical insights, traditional experiences and wonderful food. Savor local Asturian cuisine, sample aromatic cheeses and sip the traditional beverage, Sidra Asturianu, a cider made from locally grown apples. Trek through scenic gorges and alongside babbling brooks; dine in local taverns; explore 10th-century churches and relax under Spain’s oldest yew tree, El Tiexo, planted more than 1000 years ago in a sacred meadow.

In the late afternoon, we journey deep into yoga’s restorative practice to rejuvenate our trekking legs before enjoying lovely home-cooked dinners prepared by the owners of Fuentes de Lucia. No matter what your level of fitness and yoga experience you are welcome on this active holiday.

Fuentes de Lucia has a permanent laybrinth in the garden. The labyrinth is built on the same scale as the Chartres Cathedral labyrinth in France. Enjoy.

The focus of this retreat is disconnecting in nature. There will be a yoga teacher to lead us through daily asanas in our lovely yoga shala. Come and celebrate nature on this 8-day journey of being outside in the wonders of Asturias. Our yoga retreat center is located in the national park of Ubiñas de la Mesa in the Quirós valley of Asturias, Spain.
