Santorini is a stunning Greek island located in the Aegean Sea, known for its breathtaking views, unique volcanic landscape and beautiful white-washed buildings with blue-domed roofs that have become a symbol of Greece.
One of the most iconic features is its caldera – a large, submerged volcanic crater that provides awe-inspiring views of the sea and surrounding islands, which can be seen from Oia and Thira.
This scenery provides the perfect backdrop for a yoga retreat in Santorini, with views of blue-domed churches, turquoise waters and burnt orange and black sandy beaches creating a serene and peaceful atmosphere.
During downtime, you can sit in stylish cafes and enjoy a meal or drink and watch some of the most spellbinding sunsets you will ever see and return back from some evening yoga in our private Santorini villa.
An enjoyable afternoon, once the heat has died down, is to walk 10km from Oia to Thira. Few people know that this mythical volcanic island is a real haven for hikers due to the numerous trails crisscrossing its land. This picturesque destination perfectly combines comfort with adventure and relaxation with exercise. Along this walk, there are views of the Caldera the whole way and you can end up on Skaros rock in Thira for sunset…which has a whole history of itself and was a garrison to protect the local people over hundreds of years. This trail is a must-do when on holiday in Santorini.
There are a lot of vineyards in Santorini as it is known for its wine. Try a wine-tasting experience with a selection of wines or even add on a pairing menu and some of the vineyards are situated with views of the Caldera and some are amongst the vines.
Another must-do excursion whilst on your yoga holiday in Santorini is an afternoon on a luxury catamaran…obviously! Enjoy sailing around the Caldera and visit the red and white beach, the hot springs at the centre of the Caldera and a seafood BBQ lunch with drinks. his can also be enjoyed at sunset but we recommend the daytime more.
