Belengas Island 
BoatTrip  + Meditation


On both Monday & Thursday afternoons when we have no yoga classes scheduled... it’s time for a boat trip to one of the best-kept secrets in Portugal – Berlengas Nature Reserve. The islands are located 10 km offshore from Peniche, made famous for its bird watching, caves, snorkeling and nature. On the island we take you on an easy to moderate hike around the best sights on the Island and finish the trip with meditation right on the clifftop. This activity will be one of the highlights of your stay with us and shouldn't be missed. 


Obidos Tour


Looking for an authentic Portuguese experience, visit the Unesco heritage medieval town of Obidos, there’s no excuse not to see one of the loveliest towns in Portugal. With its whitewashed houses, narrow cobbled streets, castle, fortified walls and local ginja tastings. This activity is an optional extra but well worth a visit !
