About this trip

Join Amy Sullivan, for 6 days of Adventure and Wellness in the Azores, Portugal!


The Azores are a magical, volcanic land, full of natural, raw beauty, a temperate climate and endless outdoor activities. Truly an adventure lovers paradise, and just under 5 hours from Boston.


Our days will include {always optional} yoga classes with Amy, as well as hikes to some of the most incredible vistas on the island, soaks in natural hot springs, and exploration of neighboring towns and beaches.


There will also be plenty of time for relaxation amongst the beautiful gardens and fruit orchards of Quinta Minuvida, our home for the week. Our accommodations feature lovingly renovated suites, each unique and gorgeous, with its own private bathroom. All meals (with the exception of 2 lunches) are included, and will be nourishing, fresh, and delicious, so that you can get a true taste of Azorean fare.

Great yoga teachers and the group of women on this trip were a joy to be around for a week. The food was amazing. The resort site was more rustic then I was prepared for. Kristen and Ian were so responsive to any issues or questions I had.
The trip was fantastic and rejuvenating. All were helpful and accommodating.
A life-changing experience! Accommodations were great, food was amazing and the retreat was incredible. So grateful for both Heidi and Gretchen’s work as well as Kristen and Ian. You made it an awesome adventure!
Hi Kristin and Ian, Just wanted you to know how much I enjoyed the Nicaraguan GPY retreat and how impressed I was at the way you took care of all of us. The whole trip exceeded my expectations from top to bottom. Best wishes on upcoming trips. Perhaps you'll see me again with Gretchen and Nora on our next adventure. I look forward to recommending Solseed Retreats to any of your clients. Charity Folk

Excellent! Clean, delicious food in a remote setting that prioritized natural habitat over human luxury. It was a funky bungalow wonderland carved into the side of a hill overlooking a dramatic ocean vista. Turtles hatching, whales cruising by, monkeys feeding, cows on the beach, pelicans diving, are all straight up part of the scene at costa dulce. We did yoga looking out onto the deliciousness and then got first rate massage. No need to leave the compound, but when we did, it was an easy drive to the city for some culture and shopping. We surfed, hiked, fished, paddle boarded, salsa danced and sunbathed in our spare time. Surf was up, fun waves and a wonderful constant breeze made the warmth delightful. Solseed founders Kristin and Ian were on hand to ensure excellent service and offer many choices of excursions (I chose the city visit which included a stop at statue of Jesus de la Misericordia and zip lining). Their inside knowledge of the country and its people, their contacts with conscientious local providers and their enthusiasm made the trip a total success. This is my true paradise and I am still high from the experience. Lets hope America or capitalism doesnt get its hands on Costa Dolce or Nicaragua. If they do, I am confident Solseed will be exploring new pristine locations that maintain the integrity of their business!
