    Yoga holiday in Portugal
    From
    €800
    excluding flights
    Although clichι, I would say this was one of the best holidays I've been on, hand on heart. Why? All the categories that I can think of which make for an enriching and joyous experience were there: excellent quality of the treatment, yoga lessons; the beautiful location, the friendly and committed ethos of the staff and owners; wonderful and eye-opening food; outstanding company of fellow travellers; the vision of the project and its execution (more)Ben Moss
    I loved my holiday and I am very thankful to have shared this experience with a brilliant group of people. I highly recommend this retreat. (more)Helen Butler

    Portugal Vinyasa flow yoga retreat
    From
    €800
    excluding flights
    Memorable parts? Going down to the river and behaving like a hippopotamus.....by this I mean wallowing in the mud. It was not only fun but made the skin feel good too. Tips? Don't worry about what stage you are at in your yoga practice. The teachers are highly skilled and can guide you regardless of your level. I was a beginner and therefore enjoyed the afternoon sessions that focused more on pair yoga. Also buy some of their honey if you can......it is simply divine. Local benefits? Yes,...

    The most amazing week away...It has opened my eyes to Yoga and the benefits of massage and Acupuncture. (more)sarah dunnill
    A great break from a mad city life. A great combination of people and therapies to recharge...great space for yoga, great teaching. Wonderful massage and acupuncture - totally restorative. (more)Joanna Benn
    Excellent...perfect in so many ways. . There is an energy that runs through the place and you feel connected every waking moment; as you find a quiet moment by one of the water pools, or take a walk with one of the dogs, attending a yoga class, enjoying a good night’s sleep. It’s a healing place like no other. (more)sophia Hannay

    Memorable parts? My most memorable part of he holiday in Portugal was cycling along the high cliffs of Alentejo by the sea with 60 km winds at my back, even though one needed to be mindful with the wind on cycling so close to the edge of the cliff on a sandy track! The 10 percent grade for seemingly endless kms from Alejur to Monchique was a challenge that I felt really good about having accomplished in my 80th year. It made me feel blessed for the health and strength that I have. Tips? Feel... (more)Arnold Nickel

    From
    €600
    excluding flights
    Memorable parts? Discovering the Vicentina coast and its marvellous beaches and blue sea for the first time. Marvellous landscape, kindness and smiles of the people met all along the trip. Spotless accommodation, very charming small hotels. Tips? Local benefits? Yes, it did because we were always staying at small hotels run by Portuguese - in most of the places, they could hardly speak in English or French. Overall rating? Perfect, even better than expected (more)Muriel Deladriθre

    excellent, great guides and great variety - I was never bored, but had some down time too, which I wanted. (more)Mary Murphy
    As a single mum looking for activity and adventure for my 12 year old son, it was the perfect choice. The guides, Sergio and Monica, were second to none and nothing was too much trouble for them. They really seem to enjoy their job and are both extremely knowledgable. (more)Tracey Davies

    From
    €800

    Memorable parts? I had such an amazing time at Yoga at Moses, I don't think I could pinpoint my favourite moment, but the things that stood out the most were: the beautiful morning walks and yoga sessions overlooking the valley, the copious amounts of delicious, nutritious food, with loads of variety at every meal, the completely horizontal feeling of relaxation at Moses and the welcoming and accepting attitudes of the Winter family. Tips? Just come as you are and be open to being... (more)Holly Parker

    Absolutely wonderful. We enjoyed every moment of it and will treasure all the memories we have been getting. We are already discussing when we can come back and do other trails along the coast. (more)Inger Westerlund
    Wonderful holiday! More Canadians (North Americans) should know about Portugal and it’s walking tours. (more)Jeffrey Fish

    From
    €600
    excluding flights
    Memorable parts? Dramatic cliff top scenery with rare aromatic plants growing in the sandy soil round the paths. Watching surfers in the beautiful bays and fishermen perched precariously on the cliffs. Unspoiled countryside and forests inland. The fantastic non-light polluted night sky at one of the places we stayed; we saw the milky way and a shooting star. The warmth of the local people. Other walkers we met en route from many different countries. Very good locally produced food. Tips? Meals... (more)Denise Anne

    Memorable parts? Swimming off the Atlantic coast of Portugal after being towed on a rubber ring by the yacht Tips? Check the cabin accommodation and what it entails. Local benefits? Yes, we visited many small villages both in Spain and Portugal and helped with their economy. We recycled most of our rubbish and deposited some in the appropriate bins on shore. Overall rating? I had a great time. It would have been easier if I spoke more Spanish, but my vocabulary... (more)Jill Brasch
