Program

Day 1: Welcome

Guests are picked up from the AES airport to the accommodation, getting to know the area and following the welcome dinner, free evening and city walk.

Day 2: Sunnmøre Museum

Morning yoga starts at 8:15 a.m. at guest house. Breakfast at 9:30 a.m.

Here, at the site of the old Borgundkaupangen trading centre, active from the 11th to 16th centuries, over 50 traditional buildings have been relocated. Ship-lovers will savour the collection of around 40 historic boats, including replicas of Viking-era ships and a commercial trading vessel from around AD 1000.

Yin yoga or Daoist yoga practices in the evening, to soften the muscle and help regulate the flow of energy in the body, as a good recovery in the middle of the itinerary.

Day 3: Kniven Viewpoint

Morning yoga starts at 8:15 a.m at guest house. Breakfast at 9:30 a.m.

Climb to the most famous viewpoint of Aksla Hill, where the best view over Ålesund and its fishhook-shaped peninsula, as well as the mountains and islands beyond, head up the 418 steps to the summit of Aksla Hill and this panoramic viewing point. On a sunny day it's a cracking scene indeed, and it looks pretty special when the town lights start to twinkle at twilight, too.

Restorative yoga in the evening, as a warm-up for this week, with a goal to experience relaxation and restoration.

Day 4: Goodbye

Breakfast in the morning before the departure.

Kindly note that the program is flexible due to weather, closed roads, or other personal preferences.

Retreat location

The far northern port of Ålesund might be far from the bright lights of metropolitan Norway, but it's rich with some of the country's finest examples of Jugendstil (art nouveau) architecture – a legacy of a huge rebuilding project that took place after a devastating fire in 1904. Set out over a hook-shaped peninsula, the town is now the home base for Norway's largest cod-fishing fleet, and it's an attractive, lively town and unsurprisingly has some superb seafood to try.
