      About this trip

      Join Julie and Lucia of Watershed Co. for 5 nights / 6 days of coaching, wellness and adventure in the Azores, Portugal!

      Breathe in fresh air, be in the present moment and experience the raw and rugged beauty all around you as we deepen our inner and outer connections through inner and outer exploration.

      Daily workshops with Julie and Lucia will help you chart a course amid uncertainty. Give yourself permission to find clarity on what is next for you with other multi-dimensional women, and open your senses to take in the majesty of the Azores! 

      This beautiful location in the Azores will provide us a stunning back drop to be in nature, to learn more about ourselves and to have fun! Whether you’re coming to unwind, revitalize, or to see more of the world, you will have a wonderful time with like minded people.

      About the Azores:

      The Azores are a volcanic land, full of natural, raw beauty, a temperate climate and outdoor activities. Truly an adventure lovers paradise, and just 5 hours from Boston and New York, these islands are known as the "Hawaii of the mid-atlantic" and are not to be missed!

      We will be staying on the "Green Island" of Sao Miguel, home to vibrant blue volcanic lakes, black sand beaches, lush natural preserves, and panoramic cliffs. Our two excursion days will include hikes for all levels to some of the most stunning vistas on the island, soaks in natural hot springs, and exploration of neighboring towns and beaches. 

      There will also be plenty of time on our two free days for relaxation amongst the gorgeous and quiet grounds of our 5-star 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.

      Required Travel Insurance

      The purchase of travel insurance is required for this trip.

      SolSeed is not authorized to sell travel insurance. Any offer to purchase travel insurance that you encounter during the checkout process are third party offers. You are free to select your own policy provider. If you would like to review options in a convenient online marketplace, we like what has put together. We have also had great experience with Trawick International and their customer service, and heard very good things from AAA and AMEX Members who have purchased their travel insurance through those respective agencies.

      We strongly encourage you to speak with a travel insurance agent to discuss your specific coverage needs, and to clear up any questions you may have relative to travel insurance coverage, including questions about COVID-19.

      Please make sure you purchase a plan that includes coverage for COVID-19 related trip cancellations and trip interruptions as not all do.

      If SolSeed must further postpone or cancel the trip for any of the above reasons, all registrants will receive a refund of all deposits paid less €200.

      If you refuse to comply with the entry laws of the host country, region, town, etc; SolSeed will not consider this a valid reason for receiving any refund. SolSeed will ensure to the best of their abilities that all registrants comply with all then current laws and regulations.

      It was an amazing experience with great people. The activities and accommodations were wonderful! Highly recommend a Solseed retreat!
      By stephen l for SEEK & DISCOVER: RETREAT TO LAKE ATITLAN WITH 3 BRIDGES YOGA on 21 Mar, 2023
      Traveling with SolSeed was a seamless and priceless experience. I could not be more pleased with how organized everything was and the quality of the events. I am forever grateful to Kristen and Ian (with SolSeed) for creating such an incredible and memorable trip. I cannot recommend them highly enough! It is because of them that our Flourish retreat was simply outstanding, but we could not have done it without the thoughtful and intuitive guidance from Amber Campion. Her spirit and presence were a true gift, and I will eagerly wait to experience more from her.

      This was one of my top favorite vacations. Ian & Kristin from SolSeed were more than helpful throughout the process. They treated our group like we were all lifetime friends from the very beginning. They answered all questions and help facilitate changes to our schedules. Those that wanted to stay longer or come early, they helped set up accommodations. I will definitely book my next trip with SolSeed. I give them infinite stars!!!
      By Simon N for FLOURISH: Retreat to Lake Atitlan with Amber Campion on 21 Mar, 2023
      I had an amazing time. I never had to worry about anything because Kristin and Ian took care of EVERYTHING and answered all of my questions. They even provided a shuttle on a day a few of us decided to go off schedule. Many of us commented to each other about how this will become our preferred way of travel from here on out. Thank you Kristin and Ian and the Isla Verde staff!
