About this trip

B/SPOKE is hosting its second OUT OF STUDIO retreat in the AZORES ISLANDS OF PORTUGAL.


We had such an amazing experience & group participate in our first retreat in Guatemala that we are thrilled to plan our next OUT OF STUDIO experience & adventure. Join us for 5 nights / 6 days of unforgettable excursions, countless adventures, 4-star beachfront accommodations, and daily TRAIN, TRAIN X and Yoga classes. 


The Azores are a magical volcanic land, full of natural, raw beauty, a temperate climate and outdoor activities. Truly an adventure lovers paradise, and just under 5 hours from Boston, 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 days will include hikes to some of the most stunning vistas on the island, soaks in natural hot springs, and exploration of neighboring towns and beaches.  


Daily TRAIN, TRAIN X and Yoga classes will be offered, as well as 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. That said,  we can certainly set-up a monthly payment plan for you if you are interested in exploring this option. Please email info@solseedretreats.com to inquire about payment plan options. 


**All retreat pricing is in EURO. The most updated exchange rate is 1.10 USD to 1 EUR.**

We had an awesome time. Everything from the hostel, food and excursions were great. Janelle, our guide, was absolutely fantastic. She went above and beyond to make sure everyone was taken care of. She even took a group for a morning run along the water and offered some history tidbits along the way!
The retreat was fantastic, Jessie and Laura were wonderful retreat leaders who really took into account the groups vibe and edited the days based on that. Extremely enjoyable experience that I would 100% do again. The retreat home was also lovely and very easy to work with. They took great care of us and fed us SO well, amazing breakfast and dinners and super kind staff. If you're thinking of doing a retreat, do it- you won't regret it!!!!
I had such an amazing vacation traveling with Steph and Jamie to Lake Atitlan in Guatemala. They put tremendous thought into planning our daily fitness sessions together, and managed to incorporate movement, meditation and a sense of community into every class. The hotel at Lomas de Tzununa was beautiful and accommodating, and the food was simple and delicious. I cannot think of a better tribe than Hustle and Flow to travel with, and would definitely accompany Steph and Jamie on another fitness adventure! Thank you both so much!!!
I had a great time. This is my second trip with Kelsey and Solseed. The group had the entire guesthouse to ourselves, which really made it feel like family. Fresh, healthy meals cooked to order everyday. The staff at the guesthouse Friends to Be was superb. Our tour guides were born and raised in Columbia, and there was a sense of pride during the information shared during the different tours. Janel was always available for any suggestions. I always felt safe, even if alone for short walks during the day. Though this area is very much considered a city, I was able to pet a sloth and feed monkeys in the local park! The boat ride excursions to the islands were an adventure for sure. Kelsey's yoga classes were exceptional, designed in a way to offer something for all levels of practice. I met people from Denver, Idaho, Maine and New Hampshire, I reconnected with 2 friends from the trip to Guatemala last year as well. I can't explain the feeling after one of these trips, you will just have to experience one yourself! Thank you, Kristin and Ian for putting your heart into creating these adventures.
