About this trip

Join Cat Lynch and Diane Simpson for 5 nights / 6 days of healing, yoga, meditation and outdoor exploration 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 the east coast. 


Our days will include yoga, meditation and mindfulness sessions with Cat and Diane, 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.  For all of the foodies in this group, you'll have free time to explore the tiny villages and delicious regional cuisine. 


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 (except for 2 lunches on free days) are included, and will be nourishing, fresh, and delicious, so that you can get a true taste of Azorean fare.

Second time around and was wonderful again, good food, great activities and fabulous exercise every day!
Great time., great food. Few room changes. Add tissue and waste baskets to bedrooms. Also, instructions for things like a/c.
This was my second time traveling with solseed retreats and I couldn't be happier! Kristin and Ian are so knowledgeable and kind which makes traveling so much more relaxing especially for someone like me who has been doing it solo. This trip Janel was also present and she added to the experience by being just as friendly and helpful. I enjoyed all of our planned adventures as well as the unplanned ones that came upon us as we enjoyed our time together. Our Yoga instructor Stephen was amzing and the people that followed him there all had something to contribute to the group. I am looking forward to planning my next retreat with Solseed!!
I had a wonderful experience, fantastic service and food. Beautiful relaxing atmosphere right on the ocean. Excellent and peaceful accommodations. I could not ask for a better vacation.
Wonderful, relaxing trip.
