Program

Program

With the mountain bike and yoga package you will enjoy guided mountain bike tours and yoga lessons for 5 days.

You will start your days with a morning meditation and gentle yoga classes, which aims to prepare your body and mind for the challenges to come. The energy needed for your mountain bike ride will be given during the healthy and delicious organic breakfast.

After breakfast, you will go for a mountain bike ride in the Serra de Sintra and its surroundings. The rides are versatile and can be adjusted depending on the group’s fitness and skill levels. You will enjoy breathtaking impressions of the nature surrounding the place.

During the mountain bike riding, you will find a nice cozy place to rest, pause and refuel by enjoying the lunch package or having a quick Portuguese coffee, the so-called bica (espresso), in one of the favorite cafes.

After mountain biking, you can relax and stretch your muscles and ligaments during the early evening yoga session. This will help you recover quickly from the efforts of the day biking and start the relaxing part of the evening.

Then everyone does as he / she prefers, dining all together during the sunset on the terrace, relaxing with a soft drink or tea by the pool, lounging at the couch and reading a book in front of the fireplace, or just hanging out in the hammock. You will find a variety of options that can make you happy.

Saturday (arrival / departure day) and Sunday can be used to explore the surrounding area (e.g. sightseeing in Lisbon, Sintra and Cascais), lounging at the beach, the pool or enjoying one of the many recreational activities possible nearby, such as surfing, horseback riding, golfing, rock climbing, mountain biking, scuba diving, and many more.

At the end of the week, you will have experienced fantastic mountain bike trails, improved your yoga skills and met some new like-minded people. You are going to return fit, relaxed, and can cope easily with you everyday live back home, taking lots of good memories and looking forward to your next stay.

Retreat location

This retreat will take place in a comfortable villa with a pool and sea view in a picturesque mountain village called Malveira da Serra, nested in a paradise-like garden on the slopes of the Serra de Sintra with a breath-taking view over the Atlantic coastal region. The south-facing location guarantees sun all day long.

The beautiful location of the property invites you to spend time outdoors, enjoying and letting nature soak into your soul. The nearby Praia do Guincho, and the mystical forests of the Serra de Sintra are particularly magical places full of positive energy. There are of course numerous beaches with waves waiting to be explored.

The mountain bike rides take place in the nature reserve Serra de Sintra (mountain range) and its surroundings (fields, forests, and rugged coastline). It is probably one of the few undiscovered jewels among mountain bikers. Although the mountain range elevates just 530 meters above sea level at its highest point, the area offers numerous trails for all skill levels.
