"Great experience!"

Rare opportunity too enjoy hiking in Norway coupled with yoga (I was more attracted with the location - Norway - and hiking around yoga classes)

The hikes were amazing - some of the most beautiful sites in Norway

Loved the food - excellent dinners

Overall good value for money - for Norway!

Lots of activities packed in just 6 days - i enjoyed the pace

Pille does it all: she is a yoga instructor, hike leader, tour guide and (sometimes) cook. She really makes you feel welcome and makes you feel like you are personally looked after from the moment she meets you at the airport. Considering the different skill and experience levels of the participants, Pille made sure that everybody was able to "build their own adventure". The food was excellent, the yoga was varied, the hiking was enjoyable (in all weather conditions), and we were a diverse group of participants. The days are full, but that's what I wanted. To be clear, the hiking is not technical, but still we were climbing mountains -- that is, several hundred meters of elevation gain to the summit. Again, it was what I expected, but not everybody came with the same understanding.

"Full and active program in beautiful Molde"

Pille has a great energi and is a skilled and caring yoga instructor and is justa lovely person. The food was excellent and I really liked the family like feeling that blossomed within the group. I liked that all meals were shared together in one if the flats... that made it very homesey. The hikes were so so so beautiful, if maybe a little too challenging for me personally since I am not in very good shape. I survived though and really feel proud now for having done it all. All in all a week that has made me stronger, healthier and more positive and it was a week that gave me new friendships. Will never forget it.

"Magic on the Mountain"

I am so grateful to have had such an incredible experience with Pille as our yoga instructor and hiking guide. She has created the retreat with such care and thoughtfulness that you are truly being taken into her world of wonder. The yoga is a perfect balance to all of the hiking, the food was beautifully prepared and the magnificent hikes we went on had breathtaking views. Pille was open to a flexible schedule and tailored our experience to our group's needs/interests, I would excitedly go on another retreat with her!

"Incredible Molde trip"

I could not recommend this trip enough! Prepare to be astounded by Moldes beauty that is literally everywhere you turn. Pille was an incredible host has a true genuine passion for Norway, hiking and yoga, and you can’t help not wanting to leave! The accommodation was good, the schedule was flexible if you wanted it to be, the food sensational and the company you meet- awe inspiring and simply life changing. I went solo on this trip and the sense of community that very quickly develops very on this trip made you feel very much part of a family. GO on this trip. You won’t regret it!

"Amazing Yoga and Hiking Retreat "

The whole program: itinerary, schedule, flow yoga in the morning and Yin yoga after hiking; accommodations, food preparation with other participants. Outstanding hiking sites

"Awesome hikes in lovely Molde"

The hikes were awesome! Pille did a great job at discovering very beautiful tracks and put together a great plan: good mix of tracks, always different scenery and every day becomes better and better!! As a plus, the mountains you see are really cool, but the hikes are not too tricky (of course some are a bit demanding, but there are no scary parts and are not extremely long). Also, Pille organized groups of different speeds so that no one would feel pushed to hike faster than s/he wanted. I also loved yoga after hiking: I usually get sore muscles, but this week I almost did not!! In sum.. I loved this retreat and if you love hiking and yoga you should definitely go!!!

"Amazing and breathtakingly beautiful "

Pille is a great yoga teacher, hiking guide and fantastic woman. Having lunch on the mountains each day while being surround by breathtaking views was something I've never experienced before, and I'll never forget. The daily schedule was perfect and having the flexibility to change it meant we could tailor it to our liking and rest when it was needed.

I feel fortunate to have shared such a memorable experience with everyone in my group and have left making some lifelong friends.

Thank you Pille for such an enjoyable experience!

"Discover Norway"

This retreat was fabulous from top to bottom. Pille structured the day brilliantly and I felt balanced, challenged, and engaged the entire time. This is a unique way to see Norway and I’m so very glad I came. Pille is an amazing instructor and leader and I’m so grateful for this experience.

"Wonderful experience "

The program offered exciting hikes in beautiful nature, some of them more challenging than the others, balanced with energizing and nourishing Yoga classes in the mornings and afternoons. The accommodation was very good, the organization of all activities was smooth, Pille Mitt was opened for suggestions given from the group and flexible regarding the plan. There was a very nice community feeling in the group, we were preparing the breakfast together, doing the clean up afterwards, making lunch packages for the hikes... the dinner was great! We had the pleasure to eat the super delicious food cooked by Eva :)... in short - taking the retreat with Pille was one of the best decisions I've made as it turned out to be one of the best experiences I've ever had.

"Wonderful mountains bookended by relaxing yoga!"

The scenery around Molde is some of the most amazing I have seen anywhere - a wonderful mixture of sea, mountains, and beautiful architecture. The retreat location was perfect to take advantage of this, with diverse and spectacular hikes only a very short drive (or even walk) away. Pille made a great effort to make sure we saw a fantastic sample of the area, and that everyone's hiking capabilities were accommodated.

"Wonderful yoga and hiking retreat"

Pille is a great yoga instructor, give a very good instruction to do your best, and always help you to strive your best. Every hiking trip took me to places that take my breath away. Every place was so unique, beautiful and different to the next. The food were great, healthy and delicious.

"G.Toher"

The views were fabulous, out of this world. I enjoyed the yoga classes with Pille immensely. I chose a hotel room which was a lovely retreat at the end of a busy day of activity. I had best of both worlds, great company at the meals and time to recuperate at the hotel in the evening.

"Excellent retreat in beautiful Norway."

I really enjoyed everything about this retreat. Great people and lots of outdoor activity with some much needed yoga to help keep us from getting too stiff!

Pille took us to some amazing parts of Norway and we definitely got to experience far more than I would have had I tried to plan all the hikes myself- I don't think I would have been able to find most of them anyway!

Pille was warm and welcoming, as was her daughter Maria who was with us for the majority of the trip. The group of people on this trip were also incredibly warm and friendly which made it even better.

I would definitely recommend this retreat to anybody!

"perfect for a wandered and yogi at all levels"

Pille hosted the entire week and a definite highlight is her experience of all the hiking routes and contacts in the area. Pille has been living in the area for 5 years so helped us experience the area like a local.

Unexpectedly a few of us went on a morning fishing trip with a local fisherman and we took a boat trip to an amazing local island. Actuvities that can only be experience for by those "in the know".

Each hiking trip offered adventure and physical challenges for hikers of all levels. Different routes were offered for all to enjoy, each location was beautiful. The yoga sessions were not the same style everyday but was a great selection for preparation for the day ahead or wind down for the hours of hiking before.

One thing to note - the accommodation. It isn't a room in a local family home. You do not accommodate a room with a family. It is shared accomodation (with a private room) with others on the retreat but is leased out by a local. We had a great place with a terrace facing the water and mountains and all rooms were double bed sized. This again was a great unexpected bonus.

"Fantastic retreat. Fantastic location. Fantastic people."

This retreat was simply fantastic, it exceeded my expectations. We had great weather for the time of year, which we took full advantage of by flexing the schedule.

My expectation for this trip was that it would be an activity packed, no frills, participation required retreat with like-minded people. I got that and a little extra.

Pille arranged for us to stay in a locals' home. I shared a house with 4 other people and we had a blast. We really bonded on this trip which, as far as experiences go, is more than I could ask for. The people I met made this trip unforgettable.

Food was good, breakfast was amazing. This is not the kind of the retreat where a chef prepares your food and that's reflected in the price.

Pille has a very personal hosting style. We even ate dinner at her house one day. Her daughter joined us for hikes and to help with cooking. I feel like I got a very authentic experience. Far more so than had I planned my own trip.

I came in with no hiking experience but by day three I felt comfortable enough to do the Romsdaglseggen hike. I came in with good health and a fit body so that really helped.

If you're reading this and wondering if you'll be able to do it: I practice Ashtanga yoga six days a week, no hiking experience and this trip was totally doable for me.

"Yoga in Norway"

Excellent, professional yoga classes and hikes with amazing scenery. Though you have guidance, you can opt for walking in your own rhythm and enjoy nature.

The vegan food is fantastic and if you are a meat eater, you can choose to eat somewhere else else in town as food is not in the package.

Nice and clean appartment.

Perfect organization of 7 wonderful days!

The accommodation was fine and cozy - I shared a local's house (and a car) with 4 lovely people. The Yoga studio and the cafe, where we had our breakfast, were well located to reach easily and fast.

It was also great to spent the evenings with the whole group preparing and having dinner together.

The hiking trips were my personal highlight - especially the one to the Romsdalseggen ridge.

Both during the Yoga classes and the hiking trips I felt always comfortable and in good hands. The restorative Yoga classes were amazing and perfect after the long walks and hikes.

Altogether - it was my best experience this year! And Pille - and also the sweet people around her, who supported her and us - you are an admirable and lovely person! I hope to come back and meet you again one day :-) Love you all!
