Itinerary

Day 1 - The Wild West Coast!

Fresh Adventures will take care of everything on this yoga and surf retreat, so you can relax from the moment you are picked up. Meet everyone on day 1 of your retreat and then take a scenic drive to Tofino, the little surf town at the end of the road.

Gettled in your hotel room, right on the edge of Mackenzie Beach and enjoy a dinner cook out on the beach, consisting of a healthy spread fo plant based food. During the evening, unwind with a gentle yoga practise on the beach with the setting sun shining on you.

Day 2 - Surf and rejuvenation

Wake up to the sound of the waves lapping on the beach and the sweet, salty smell of the ocean air. Start your day off right with a meditation on the beach, and follow it up with a delicious breakfast and locally roasted coffee.

Today you will hop on a boat and catch a quick ride over to Meares Island, where you will hike along the Big Tree Trail, winding your way through an ancient rainforest, and seeing the "Hanging Garden" one of the largest and oldest trees on the West Coast.

Watch for the seals and sea lions, as well as bald eagles perched high in the trees. You have some time to explore Tofino in the afternoon, and then head back for some relaxation and fun at the beach. You can opt to participate in a pant based cooking class, crafting up an inspiring dinner.

During the evening you will do a yoga practise on the beach and get into your bodies. Finish off the perfect day on your retreat by sitting around a campfire and watching the stars come out.

Day 3 - Surf's up!

Wake up feeling refreshed and head down to the beach for a morning meditation or yoga practise, welcoming in the new day. Once you have nourished yourself with a delicious breakfast and a steaming cup of coffee we head out for a day of adventure and surfing.

Today is your chance to try surfing out in a fun and gentle way, learning from a professional instructor in waves that are perfectly tailored to beginners. Getting out on the water is the perfect way to connect with nature, feeling the rhythm of the ocean beneath your board.

After your surf session, go for a walk on Long Beach, in search of sea life and letting your minds calm and let go of stress. Perhaps take a moment to sit on the beach and relax, easing into a state of complete mindfulness and focusing on what we are grateful for.

Feast on a spread of nourishing food and push yourself on an Ashtanga yoga practise on the soft sand of the beach. After such an active day it's time to rest your body, soaking in the hot waters of the outdoor hot tub.

Day 4 - Recharge in paradise

Welcome the day during some morning sun salutations, or a de-stressing sit on the beach. Sit with new friends during breakfast, enjoying the healthy spread and talking about the day. Today you have the option to do another guided hike, or rent surf boards and head out for another surf session.

It may even be possible to do both if you fear missing out. During the last full day of your yoga retreat, Fresh Adventures will aim to make it special. After a day of adventure and fun, return to the beach and try a yoga practise on stand-up paddleboards!

This is totally optional, and a likely activity to get you wet, as you try out your favourite postures while floating on the ocean. (You'll have a wetsuit and be close to shore, so it's the perfect chance to try this out!)

Once you're dried off, eat a heart warming meal and relax on the beach. Tonight, there will usually be a group circle, as well as meditation where you are welcome in new goals and dreams. Hang out with your retreat friends in the hot tub and make plans to reunite in the future!

Day 5 - A rejuvenated return

After another calming morning practise on the beach, hop in the van and begin your journey back to where you were picked up from in Nanaimo or Victoria. Fresh Adventures can't wait to see you for another retreat soon!

Retreat location

Stay right on Mackenzie Beach in Tofino in an ocean view room! Each day you can stroll out of your rooms right onto the beach for sunset, daily yoga practise, guided meditations and to swim in the ocean.

Soak in an outdoor hot tub beneath the stars! During your retreat, you go on two guided hikes in the rainforest, try surfing and walk on Long Beach. Expect sunsets, beach fires, clean ocean air, massive old growth trees, and wildlife to spot!

Food

Enjoy a delicious selection of healthy and fresh whole food in our retreat menu. Your retreat leaders craft up three mouth watering meals per day (plus snacks), and kick start your morning with a steaming dose of locally roasted coffee and tea.

Fresh Adventures provide a healthy, plant based menu, that is cooked and enjoyed outside at the beach. You can partake in an optional cooking class during your retreat and bring home some inspiring new plant based meal ideas!
