 ALPINE ADVENTURE & NATURE RETREAT

The home base for our yoga adventure in Julian Alps is a little town called Bovec located in Soča Valley, Slovenia. This tiny hidden gem lays in the valley next to the pristine river and at the base of several stunning and majestic mountains!

Our package is designed for active travelers, who are looking for a unique nature experience in a stunning alpine setting! Moreover, our team of locals with extensive firsthand experience will lead you through real-life Narnia!

  

Local knowledge

Not only, will you have the opportunity to truly experience the local culture through active, adventure sports, immersing yourself in the beautiful nature and enjoying local cuisine that will leave your taste buds tingly! But also, we will spend a week living like the locals and exploring the best this valley has to offer. Afterall there is the benefit of traveling with a local, as we know all the spots that are still a well-kept secret…no geotagging!

  

Everyday yoga practice

Our philosophy is that yoga is for everyone, even if you’ve never tried. Lindsey specializes in yoga for the active person, focusing on keeping your body strong, stretched and healthy so you can enjoy all of the adventures in Soča Valley. We will offer a variety of yoga styles and workshops. Those will include meditation, Acro Yoga, power yoga and vinyasa! Again, no previous experience necessary.

Also, there will be a wide array of extra activities each day based on your preferences, activity levels, and passions! So many different activities to choose from, that will make your holiday a memorable one! On the other hand, if you prefer to take it easier, you can spend the free time down by the emerald river, get lost on the mountain trails, or sip coffee in the main square of our quaint village.

  

Accommodation in Slovenia

We will be staying in a modern, fully renovated villa in the village. Open floor plan and clean accommodations provide a comfortable atmosphere for evenings on the patio, and a cozy ‘home base’ to come back to after a day of adventures.
