Vale de Moses, in the stunning Portuguese mountains, is one of the top five yoga retreats in Europe – as recommended by National Geographic Traveller and the Guardian. Located in the foothills of the Serra de Estrela mountains, one of the largest wild pine forests in Europe, Vale de Moses offers soulful, restorative yoga retreats all year round.
Retreat for a week of inspirational yoga, healing massages and nourishing plant-based food. Practice yoga daily in a wooden and glass shala floating above herb gardens with incredible views down the valleys; explore the surrounding pine forests with the family’s pet pigs and dogs; wild swim and mud bathe in rivers, and immerse yourself in the healing tranquility of nature.
Start each morning with a guided silent forest-bathing meditation walk before yoga class. Bodywork therapies are an essential part of the Vale de Moses retreat experience, with a massage included in the price of almost every retreat. The competition winner will stay in a large Soulpad glamping belle tent in the heart of the forest, decked out with a comfy bed, cotton sheets, duvets, towels, a wood burning stove, carpets, drawers and electricity. Outside, hammocks and sun loungers invite you to rest in the shade from the heat of the Portuguese sun.
