Full Description

Arrive on Thursday afternoon in time for a welcome drink and dinner with the group. The holiday program begins on Friday morning with a gentle meditation and yoga class with Maria to awaken your body. After breakfast, walk for approximately 3-4 hours in the beautiful mountains surrounding the Sòller valley, led by your local guide, Nina who will help you connect with the nature and historical landmarks around you. Later in the day we will enjoy a session of restorative yoga guided by Maria and we round up the day with a tasteful dinner in the hotels bistro restaurant. Saturday's program is very similar to Friday's but today we will get a bus transfer from the hotel in the morning up in mountains where we then walk through a green valley and later on down the cobbled stone steps of stunning Barranc de Biniaraix. At the end of the walk we reach the city of Sòller and its time for a relaxing hot or cold drink at the plaza of this city. We can either pick the old style tram or the public bus back to Port d’Sòller afterwards. In the evening Maria leads another yoga session. On Sunday our wake up is a bit later and we enjoy our last breakfast before its time for our final yoga and goodbye session. Between the yoga sessions and the hikes on Friday and Saturday there is time to yourself and you may enjoy the splendid spa treatments that this modern-vintage hotel has got to offer, seek the sun in the garden or on one of the terraces, have a refreshing swim in the hotels pool or in the sea (for the brave ones).

Accommodation
Espléndido invites you to a cozy and relaxed "home away from home" where you won’t miss anything (the rooms have TV/DVD, WiFi, Nespresso). The hotel is located in the charming Port of Sóller (45 min drive from PMI Airport, less than 1 hour by public transport), and it is tastefully designed and refurbished in a Scandinavian style but with a Mediterranean touch. Between hiking and Yoga you may enjoy the spacious modern SPA (-20% discount on all spa treatments for our Walking and Yoga Holiday participants – book prior to arrival) , Sauna, indoor- and outdoor pools, innovative bar and restaurant, beautiful views over the sea and mountains as well as the harbor’s nice sea promenade.

Location
Port de Sóller is a small (former fishing) village located approximately 3km from the town of Sóller in the “Valley of Oranges”. This little harbor-village charms its visitors with its amazing natural shape (just

like a "u" letter), stunning nature and its friendly residents. Surrounded by mountains (some of them over 1000m) and turquoise sea, this bay has got a unique Mediterranean feeling and we therefore felt that it is the perfect base for a Walking and Yoga Holiday. The 2 hikes offered during the retreat are at a moderate level and offer a unique insight of the heart of the Tramuntana mountains, nature and its history.
