Holiday program summary: Thursday 9thNovember to Sunday 12th November 2017

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. Our first day walk is graded as easy. 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. After dinner on Friday we include a relaxing Yoga Nidra session before going to sleep. Saturday's program is very similar to Friday's but today we will get a bus transfer from the hotel in the morning up to the Túnel de Monnàber where our walk towards "Coma de Son Torella" and the famous Barranc de Biniaraix starts. Todays walk is a medium walk and requires a little bit more of stamina. Our walk rounds up in the picturesque town of Sòller from where we will be taking the classic old style tram back to the port of Sòller and our hotel. In the evening Maria leads another yoga session. On Sunday our wake up is a little bit later and we enjoy our last breakfast before its time for our final yoga and goodbye session - this time we do our yoga practice on the beach below the hotel. 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 direclty with the hotel) , 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 easy and moderate level and offer a unique insight of the heart of the Tramuntana mountains, nature and its history.

Transport to and from Hotel Espléndido in Port d’Sòller

The hotel is located approximately 33km from Palma airport. On Thursday 9th of November a private minibus will leave the airport at 4:00pm and pick up in central Palma at 4.20pm before driving to the hotel in Port d’Sòller (included in the price of the holiday). Alternatively you can travel by public transport to Port d’Sòller by first picking bus number 1 from the airport to Plaza de España and from here bus number 211 to Port d’Sòller. If this is your preferred option please let us know in advance so that we can send you the timetables. Please note that this alternative option is not included in the price and you would have to pay for this apart. You can also take a taxi directly from the airport to the hotel in Port of Sòller (not included in our price).
