Program

Highlight activities

  • Morning yoga and pranayama prepares your body for an active day outdoors
  • Yin and restorative yoga restore and revitalize your body after a long hike in the mountains
  • You can travel solo and you will find new friends

Yoga is for everyone. You do not need to be very experienced in it, but if you are, good for you! The morning yoga will be a traditional Hatha yoga class. The pace of the class depends on the group level.

There are almost always some beginners and some more experienced practitioners together on the retreat and it is a good thing since then we can learn from each other. The morning yoga class is usually 75 minutes with pranayama and relaxation.

After the morning yoga class, you will eat breakfast. After breakfast, we will walk or drive to the starting point of the hikes. Sometimes it is close by but for some hikes, it can be up to 45 minutes to drive to the starting point. Hiking in Norway can be different from some other countries.

The definition of hiking is a long, vigorous walk, usually on trails, in the countryside. So, it is not walking in the park or on flat land. It is walking uphills and downhills on different terrain. In Norway, it can be forest, grass, or stones, usually a combination of all three.

Sometimes you have to use your hands to help yourself. We will have hikes 3 to 5 kilometer one way. The elevation is 480 m.a.s.l. until 1200 m.a.s.l. The difficulty level of the hikes is moderate. We will start with easier and shorter hikes. You have to be moderately fit to participate.

However, we are walking fairly slowly and taking breaks on the way. The purpose is to enjoy the journey, not to hurry up and down. Walking slowly can give you the experience of a meditation walk. One of the purposes of hiking is to enjoy the stunning views over the fjords and mountains of Norway.

They make you speechless. Silent is the best companion to sit on the top of the mountain and eat your lunch. Or you may want to take a lot of beautiful photos. Usually, people say that although the hike may not be easy, it is worth it!

The sunrise hike has been a popular option among our hiking yogis and yoginis. If the weather allows, we will walk up to see the amazing sunrise over the mountains. Words can hardly describe the simple, profound, and breathtaking magic of watching the sun emerge from the horizon in the stillness of the early morning.

After hiking, we are walking or driving to the yoga studio again to stretch and relax. A combination of yin and restorative yoga or one of them will help to recover your muscles for the next day.

Dinners consist of delicious and fresh seafood bought from local fishermen, vegetables, and healthy desserts like banana bread, fruit salads, raw chocolate, or bliss balls.

During or after dinner we will have some discussions about the essence of yoga and eight limbs of yoga.

The weather in Norway may change rapidly. If it is raining heavily there is an option to spend a day in a local water park Moldebadet, visit the museum or have a raw chocolate workshop.

Please be aware that it is a very active holiday. If you need a more relaxing holiday, you are still welcome to participate, but we strongly recommend you to skip some hiking trips and yoga classes. Walking in the mountains every day for 3 days can be physically demanding.

If you have some injuries or knee problems, please take your walking sticks with you. The most important things are good walking shoes, a positive mind, and the ability to listen to your own body.

Sample daily schedule:

  • 07:30 - 08:45 Morning yoga
  • 09:00 - 10:00 Breakfast
  • 11:00 - 12:00 Commuting to the mountains
  • 12:00 - 14:00 Hiking
  • 13:00 - 14:00 Lunch
  • 14:00 - 16:00 Hiking
  • 16:00 - 17:30 Restorative / Yin yoga class
  • 18:30 - 20:00 Dinner
  • 20:00 - 22:00 Free time or bedtime

In the last morning we have a yoga class and breakfast altogether. Then you have time to pack, take the walk in the city and say goodbye to your new friends.

Transfer to the airport is between 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. If you leave on your own, taxi to the airport costs around 250 NOK.
