About this trip

Join Eliza and Jeannette for 6 days of adventure,  wellness and relaxation 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 and New York.

Our days will include always optional Pilates Mat and Stretch & Release classes with Eliza, 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 property of our oceanfront, 4-star eco-beach resort. 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. 


A €500 non-refundable deposit is required to hold your spot on this retreat. The balance is due 120 days prior to departure. Payment plans are available at no additional cost. Please email Tina@solseedretreats.com to request one.


Please note that while the official start date of this trip is April 5th, you will need to take a red eye flight from BOS (Boston) to PDL (Azores) on the evening of April 4th.  We will send you flight recommendations upon booking.  If you choose to book flights other than these recommended ones, you will be responsible for paying for your own airport transfers, which will run you roughly 20 - 25 EURO each way.

Such an amazing trip! Well organized, wonderful people, great times! Forever grateful 🙏
Most amazing experience I’ve had to date. We went hiking, to natural hot springs, took a cooking class in a locals home, went horse back riding, practiced yoga with an incredible view, and ate delicious local food. The island and resort are beautiful. I met so many amazing people and made friendships that I am so thankful for. Everything was planned for us it was so nice. I highly recommend this company & retreat. I’m already thinking of signing up for another!
Again, another great retreat. Very well organized with great excursions...a real value. Takes traveling with a group to a new healthy level! Always look forward to their retreats.
The Azores retreat with CC and Carolyn was a fantastic trip! Their classes were amazing and they worked hard to feel out the group, customizing the schedule and tempo accordingly. The resort was in a stunning location and the staff kind and accommodating. Sol Seeds provided us with knowledgeable guides who clearly loved to share the many adventures to be found on the island! The itinerary was well thought out and organized, and the team worked very hard to make sure everyone was getting the most out of their experience!
It was a great trip, the Azores are amazing. Carolyn and CC are fabulous, top notch teachers, fun and great people. I expected more from SolSeed. I had a friend who raved about Kristen and Ian but they weren't on our trip. There were miscommunications with scheduling changes and planning excursions on free days that easily could have been avoided. Also, more information could have been provided about the resort so we knew what to expect. Nothing earth shattering but, for example, it would have been helpful to know that the staff spoke limited English so if we requested something (like towels or face cloths) we wouldn't always be understood (or get the face cloths!) The staff was always very nice and again not a big deal but would have been nice to know in advance. Fun Activities gets an A+ and all your tours should go back to the farm to table restaurant (one of the best meals I've ever had!) and the wine tour.
