Lake District in May 2024
2nd - 5th May 2024 May Bank Holiday Hiking Lake District
Springtime of fun on our Lake District yoga retreat with hiking and visiting the beautiful Lakes. Yoga twice a day and vegan food.
May is such a beautiful time to experience a hiking and yoga retreat in the Lake District. The mountains have had all winter to receive lots of rain, which regenerates the lush greens of mountainsides each year and the colourful wildflowers in bloom are a sight to see. Start the day in our beautiful yoga shala with views out to the local hills, a dynamic practice to warm and bring energy into the body and mind.
With our qualified and very experienced mountain guides on hand to lead the day hike, and your yoga teacher to lead a more gentle yet equally as stunning walk to Tarn Howes directly from our retreat centre, immerse yourself in nature and feel the benefits of this, being away from the frenetic and urban landscape of your day to day living. Take a packed lunch and just sit and watch the world go by, or enjoy a bit of forest bathing and meditation. Enjoy a massage and take time for yourself to unwind and connect to nature.
After a day’s excursions, unwind with evening yin and restorative yoga and yoga Nidra followed by a vegan and vegetarian feast.

Men & Women
Fantastic venue. Beautiful house and gardens, tastefully decorated and quiet. The food was delicious, healthy but filling as well. Not tempting me to eat snacks in between! Tried horse riding for the first time in a perfect setting at a good price. A good mixture of quite a difficult hike and optional activities with relaxing yoga.
Philippa – Lake District
The perfect balance of relaxation and adventure. A weekend full of memories and experience that I will never forget. The AdventureYogi team are fab!
Sarah – Lake District
AdventureYogi offered me much more than a retreat. They gave me space to return to myself and reconnect with my wants and desires. I can’t thank the team enough for reviving my batteries, stimulating my curiosity and re-invigorating my passion for life – each and every day.
