PEDAL. STRETCH. BREATHE. TANTALIZING TUSCANY
16 to 23 June 2018 | 7 NIGHTS / 8 DAYS
Sometimes, it takes a special place in your life and the right setting to unravel and just let go. Soulfit Adventures offers an exquisite opportunity to do just that in Tuscany.
There is something about Tuscany. It has a way of enveloping you, of transporting you from the everyday and it makes you feel as if you are living life in slow motion. The rest of the world disappears. Tuscany has a magic, a special power, an unknown quantity that seeps into every part of your being and seduces in the best possible way.
Imagine weaving your way through the intimate and untouched cycling trails in and around Lucca, whilst immersing yourself in the essence of history and nature. Each day is different, taking you into the local off the beaten tracks to discover what waits. Your body being guided through yoga to prepare you for the bike, or a restorative yoga sequence late in the day to soothe tired legs. Fresh, authentic local foods prepared lovingly to nourish and delight you.
The bike is freedom. It allows you to travel the roads less travelled, taking in the sights and scents —the crunching of the gravel below your tires or the soothing hum as you glide over fresh pavement – you just don’t experience the world the same way by foot, car, or plane.
Soul Fit’s Tuscan cycling and yoga retreat offers you the chance to reconnect with your self and let go. Nestled in boutique luxury accommodation on a private estate, setting the backdrop for morning or evening yoga as you cycle the days into bliss. You will relish in cuisine of fresh local produce and wine, absorbing the sights – a pure delight for the senses – Tuscan style!

PEDAL. STRETCH. BREATHE. SPECTACULAR SPAIN.
Yoga & Cycling Retreat Girona, Spain | 29 JUNE to 6 JULY 2018 | 7 NIGHTS / 8 DAYS
Soulfit Adventures is heading to Spain – Girona to be precise – in 2018 with their signature yoga and cycling retreat – VIVA ESPANA!!
Why Girona? Because the city and it’s surrounding areas are some of the most romantic, gorgeous, unspoilt places in Europe. The ancient Catalan city Girona, with its warren of winding streets, perched on a hillside in northern Catalonia is all we could ask for. The roads are quiet, the landscapes are to die for and the city is alive with culture and art.
It’s a place where you can spend your days cycling alongside rugged pink rocks with the teal-coloured Mediterranean glimmering below, framed by grand, arabesquing pines on the Costa Brava or, on near deserted roads in gloriously wild parts and tastefully manicured in others. The region is also foodie’s paradise, not to mention superb, locally produced wines!
Leaving the world behind a picture postcard setting awaits you, settled in boutique farmhouse accommodation in the Catalan countryside, creating a glorious backdrop for morning or evening yoga after fantastic day on your bike. Arriving home to fresh local produce prepared lovingly by Soulfit’s own in house cook, and who could forget the wine!
Setting off on bikes to cycle the quiet back roads you will discover places steeped in history and nature, and absorb the sights, scents, tastes and atmosphere of Spain at handle bar level. Soulfit feels that by cycling, you get social, you get to chat (or not…), you get to have fun and be active in the outdoors. You get fitter. You get more toned. You get healthier. You get happier.
When you’re not getting behind the handlebars, or on your yoga mat, you’ll be in retreat-mode. Their main priority is your enjoyment, meaning you’re always in control of your level of participation.
Day 1 – Arrive in Girona, transfer to Cal Rajoler Estate, bike fit out, settle in, welcome dinner
