Yoga and Walking week in Lykia

1-8 April, 15-22 April, 6-13 May, 4-11 November, 25 November-02 December 2018

A Yoga holiday with a difference! The combination of walking in an ancient natural environment and relaxing Yoga allows one to come back to oneself. With nature`s bounty all around, tapping into your own energies and meeting other like-minded people all combine to make this the perfect holiday. The magical Lycian Way passes our door, and is considered one of the ten most beautiful walks in the world, it makes sense to bring the two together.
