About this trip

Join Rebecca Soule, PhD for 5 nights / 6 days in Catalunya’s Costa Brava, a majestic stretch of Spain’s Mediterranean coastline, which stretches from the France-Spain border, south towards Barcelona. Visitors love the region for its picturesque Medieval-era towns, beautiful rolling hills, and gorgeous beaches, and is the perfect place to retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city!


During this itinerary, we will spend time exploring the beautiful coastline, both directly below the retreat center, and on a short hike on the nearby coast. We’ll get beautiful views from up high on cliffs, of the beautiful blue sea water. We’ll take our shoes off and cross soft, sandy beaches. We’ll end with a chilled glass of wine and some delicious Spanish tapas at a seaside cafe!


Speaking of wine, the region has its own Denomination of Origin, and several wonderful wineries. Included is an afternoon visiting two local wine cellars, with lite bites, and an educational tour. Wine isn’t all we’ll learn about however! The great Spanish painter, Salvador Dali, was a Costa Brava local. We will spend a day visiting his famous museum in Figures.


Of course, we also leave ample free time to simply sit by the pool, read a book, visit a nearby village, or practice yoga with Rebecca in our gorgeous studio. The town of Begur is a 30 minute walk or 10 minute drive from the retreat property, and features wonderful little shops, restaurants, and ruins of a Medieval Castle. Can’t get enough of these quaint, historic villages? Grab a taxi, and get a ride over to Pals, a meticulously restored Medieval maze of streets, shops, and ruins.

  1. The host government forbids us to visit as tourists.
  2. The host government forbids our vendors from hosting us as tourists.
  3. The US government forbids us to travel to the host country as tourists.

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.


The purchase of travel insurance is required for this trip, most policies protect you against potential trip delays or cancellations due to airline issues, family emergencies, illness, injury, etc. The travel insurance will also demonstrate to the host country that you are able to pay for any emergency services which may be necessary during your stay.


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 www.insuremytrip.com has put together. 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


If you refuse to comply with the 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. Registrants are personally responsible for complying to local laws, at their own expense. Such expenses may include, but are not limited to:

  1. Proving adequate vaccination status
  2. Providing a negative PCR test(s)
  3. Providing proof of adequate travel insurance

Passport Requirements + Immunizations

You must have a valid passport to travel to Spain. Please check your passport expiration date and make sure it is valid for at least 3 months after the end date of your retreat. 


SolSeed is uncertain exactly what the VISA and Immunization requirements may be at the time of your retreat.
