Namaste from the mountains of Asturias; Spain's best kept secret and home to Hotel Fuentes de Luca, your perfect mountain retreat. Our dynamic yoga retreat in Spain, which combines yoga and hiking, will include twice daily yoga classes with certified instructors from around the globe and local hiking guides who all share their passion with us here in our oasis of serenity and calm. Surrounded by dramatic peaks, deep gorges and crystal clear rivers, there is nowhere better to breathe in the pure mountain air and stretch your limbs than at our tranquil restored farmhouse and purpose built yoga studio in our yoga retreat in Spain.
Hotel Fuentes de Lucia is located 5 kilometers from the small lake of Valdemurio, where you can paddle on a kayak, spend the afternoon on the shores with a fishing pole or take a quick dip on a sunny summer day. In the next valley over, walk through the mystical canyon of Las Xanas to Pedrobeyo for a hearty lunch of Fabada, a typical Asturian white bean and chorizo stew. The Inn can accommodate 16 people in 8 rooms, all with en suite bathrooms, and either a balcony or terrace. It is perfect for your next family reunion, birthday, anniversary party, retreat or just an excuse to escape to a mountain haven for a while.
We begin the day with an early morning yoga practice followed by a hearty breakfast in the main dining room, formerly a mill, before the day's hiking adventure unfolds. We walk beautiful mountain trails, averaging approximately 15 kilometers per day, accompanied by friendly and knowledgeable guides who will fill our days with a soulful blend of scenic hiking, historical insights, traditional experiences and wonderful food.
We also savor local Asturian cuisine, sample aromatic cheeses and sip the traditional beverage, Sidra Asturianu, a cider made from locally grown apples. Besides that, we also trek through scenic gorges and alongside babbling brooks; dine in local taverns; explore 10th-century churches and relax under Spain’s oldest yew tree, El Tiexo, planted more than 1000 years ago in a sacred meadow.
Late in the afternoon, we journey deep into yoga's restorative practice to rejuvenate our trekking legs before enjoying lovely home-cooked dinners prepared by the owners of Fuentes de Lucia.
Nestled in Quiros Valley, the casa rural is surrounded by dramatic peaks, deep gorges and crystal clear rivers, and ancient forests, a paradise for those who love the great outdoors. An intricate system of marked footpaths leads you from one small village to the next; up and over mountain passes; and through river valleys. Our guides are able to take our guests through our magnificent landscape via well trodden pathways visiting remote villages where life unchanged, continues much as it always has.
Close by is the Senda del Oso, a 30 kilometer trail from Barzana de Quiros to Trubia, which runs through these valleys following the track of an old railway line once used for transporting coal and iron ore. Taking a leisurely stroll along is a wonderful way for individuals, couples or families to spend the day whether by bike or on foot.
