Seven nights in this little-known Portuguese island chain

Azores Yoga Retreats

 Yoga + Dramatic Landscapes + Geothermal Pools + Great Cheese & Wine

The Azores…if you haven’t heard of these islands in the Atlantic, one  quick Google will have you registering for this retreat! A part of  Portugal, these special volcanic islands are still relatively unknown  to tourism.  An autonomous region of Portugal, where lush tropical  vegetation overlaps with trim pastures, we will soak up the natural  beauty, take great hikes, and enjoy yoga in our hotel’s 31-acre  botanical garden! Our retreat will be centered in Furnas, on São  Miguel island, which will allow us to walk into town and to local  sights, and be within 1-1.5 hours driving of all major sights on São Miguel. 

Hot Springs & Caldeiras

Part of Portugal, but the Azores have their own culture, food, architecture and hospitality.

Where you'll stay...

Art Deco hotel with botanical gardens: 7 nights

Terra Nostra Hotel and  Spa (the top-rated hotel in all of the Azores) is  located right in the center of the charming town of Furnas, and as  guests we have 24/7 unlimited access to their 31-acres of botanical  gardens and multiple geothermal pools (which are rich in iron, and only  have a very light sulphur smell). Our location will  allow us to walk to  many of the other gardens, hot springs and calderas within Furnas.
