Breathtaking Hiking and Yoga holiday in Montenegro, 7th – 14th October
Breathtaking Hiking and Yoga holiday in Montenegro
If you are a lover of the great outdoors then this hiking and yoga holiday in Montenegro is for you. We have planned a week to showcase all that this untouched area of the world has to offer!.
You can expect a relaxed yet exhilarating itinerary, with breathtaking hikes, water sports, boat excursions, beautiful day trips and more, with 3 hours of yoga per day.
We are based in a beautifully renovated olive mill 10 minutes from the spectacular coast, a short walk from the traditional old town and with its cosy restaurants and shops, so if you choose to have a day to relax by yourself, this is fine, too!
If you haven’t visited Montenegro before, you are absolutely in for a treat. Unlike its neighbour Croatia, Montenegro is relatively untouched by tourism but shares the same stunning coastline, scenery and friendly people, we have planned a week for you exploring all that Montenegro has to offer!
Montenegro is half the size of Wales, but in a relatively small area you will be lucky to find an incredible coastline with unspoilt beaches, clear lakes in the national parks for wild swimming, rivers fit for kayaking, and mountains that are begging to be conquered. We can arrange day tours, hiking, cycling and more for you so that you can take in all there is of this incredible country.

Amy’s style of teaching comes from a place of nurturing. She wants you to feel free to explore the capabilities of your own body, respect your boundaries and learn how to heal and protect it.
By blending strong, grounded hatha practises with the freedom found in Scaravelli and vinyasa she believes that each practise can help create the perfect balance between flexibility and stability in both body and mind.
About the Yoga
Our 1.5 hour morning classes are designed to help you awaken your body, focusing on energising and invigorating your body, ready for an exhilarating day exploring the stunning scenery.
After your day hiking, exploring or relaxing at the beach, return to the olive mill to unwind and relax tired bodies with a restorative evening yoga class. This gentle session will vary each evening and include pranayama and meditation to help mind and body really let go and allow you to enter a state of deep relaxation.

How to get there
We can support travellers with arranging this transfer as we know it’s sometimes nerve racking organising transfers in an unfamiliar place. We will book the transfer and pass on the details to you, but the fee must be paid in euros to the transfer company on arrival. It will be approximately 50 euros return and 25 euros single trip depending on the number of travellers.
The journey takes 2.5 to 3.5 hours from Dubrovnik to the retreat depending on the time it takes to exit the airport and general traffic.
If you want to arrange flights outside these times, there are 2x Buses a day 11am and 20.30 from Dubrovnik to Bar which is approximately £20. Click here for more information. Please check these transfer times before booking your flights though.
Activities – yoga, pilates, wellness program etc
Easyjet, Jet 2 and flybe all fly to Dubrovnik, Croatia for return flights from as little as £80. We can organise a group return transfer for you from Dubrovnik to the venue if you get flights arriving into Dubrovnik before 2pm, and flights departing out of Dubrovnik after 2pm. The transfer will be at an extra cost. You can use Skyscanner to search for the best deals.
