Welcome to Vikara Retreats. Vikara was born out of the idea to create a holistic community that supports a healthy lifestyle aligned with nature and the local environment. Together, we strive to make this your home and transform it into place of belonging where you can let go of daily worries and stress and completely focus on your quest of self-discovery. This is the opportunity to connect with like minded people, discuss all your deep, crazy and funny thoughts, discover a new country together, laugh with each other, and be the best version of yourself. Our space thrives on unique personalities, mutual respect, diversity and friendship.

We see the path of transformation as an important journey towards improving our lives and the lives of people around us. Through our own life learnings and refined through our experiences with multiple customers, we’ve singled out 6 essential elements of transformation that are offered within our retreats: Love, Exploration, body mind& spirit connection, healing, community, and Joy.

The retreats are designed for small groups which make your experience very intimate. The friendships developed on retreat creates a community (meaningful connections with other people healing through shared experiences). The goal is that you feel at home and allow yourself to be yourself.
