About this trip

  

GLO Sun & Soul Wellness Tour Croatia 

Zadar, Dalmatian Coast

6-Night, 7-Day


Overview

An Adventure in Culture, Movement & Mindfulness on the Dalmatian Coast  


If the soul could sing, it would surely be a song about the Adriatic Sea! This seven-day wellness tour & retreat on the Dalmatian Coast will have you second-guessing your departure date from the moment you land in Zadar. 

After a sunrise yoga session and a leisurely day on the grounds of Villa Premasole (literally translated to Towards the Sun), you will explore Historic Zadar City to take in the sounds of the famous Sea Organ and sights of the Salutation to the Sun. 

You will be guided around the serene landscapes of Zadar County. Here, you’ll have ample time to saunter through the welcoming village and historic towns. You’ll be taken off-the-beaten path with a local to explore the secrets of Dalmatia, tour the karst islands, taste exceptional local Mediterranean food, organic olive oil and wine, trek your way through the hills of Velebit Mountain and turquoise waters of UNESCO Plitvice Lakes. 

You will visit the famous crystal-clear waters and beaches of the Adriatic Sea where you’ll enjoy mindful movement, or test your inner balance with playful AcroYoga for the adventurous!

A dip in the healing thermal mud bath along with delicious daily GLO meals, and nightly guided meditations will nourish your body and mind, and leave your soul singing until your next visit to beautiful Croatia.

*It is important to note that in Europe, all guiding is based around local guides all of whom are licensed to work only in a particular city. As such, our leaders are able to provide orientation walks which will show you the layout of each town, city and parks, suggestions on things to see and do, including great local eating venues, introduce you to local friends, as well as the location of local services such as post offices and stores, but are unable to legally share historical facts and figures in public places. Your Group Leader will be able to provide general knowledge of Croatia, including historical, cultural, religious and social aspects.

**Please note: This retreat does NOT include cost of meals for excursions out. The total of meals eaten out at local, fresh, farm-to-table restaurants is 3 lunches and 3 dinners. This gives everyone the opportunity to eat what they want (vegan or non-vegan). Of course, Grace is available and on-hand as a Registered Holistic Nutritionist + Cellular Nutrition Coach to advise anyone on eating healthy while travelling if they desire.

Grace is the most down to earth person i've ever encountered in my life! Her story is so inspiring and she was able to challenge me to be a successful entrepreneur. She will always try to accommodate the best she can and make sure that you are comfortable at her wellness centre. Her food tastes amazing that will keep you satisfied while you're there! Her place is sooo beautiful. You will feel at peace being surrounded in nature. Her intern, Lexy, who taught yoga every morning was the sweetest person. She also did Reiki and Crystal healing which was also a really bizarre experience. Chris, Grace's business partner, was very knowledgable in myofascial therapy and gave the best massages! 10/10 recommend!!

Another incredible adventure with Gracious Living Lifestyle! I guess that's why this was my 8th retreat with Grace!
Amazing retreat with great facilitators! Grace never disappoints. Fantastic location with wonderful food and company; great group of people. GLO for the WIN! :)
This was an experience of a lifetime. I was educated on how to run retreats and form a business plan. I was given opportunities to grow and gain confidence... in the kitchen, working the land, teaching yoga classes. The food was all fresh, healthy and delicious. The space was beautiful, inspiring, relaxing and comfortable. Grace was the perfect host and teacher. I would highly recommend this retreat.
