Type of Event
Spanish Steps meets & greets you in Oviedo at 5 PM on June 2. We drive to the retreat center, Fuentes de Lucia, for 8-days of yoga & daily hikes. June 9, we'll have you back in Oviedo by 10 AM.
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, Fuentes de Lucia.
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.
