What to Expect

 

This May and September we’re heading to Sardinia for our women only stand up paddleboarding and yoga holiday. We’ll be exploring the western coast of Sardinia, with 56 miles of coastline and varied terrain, from sandy beaches, secluded bays, cliffs, mountains, rivers, it’s the perfect location to explore by water and land.

Each day we’ll explore a new location by stand up paddleboard and foot. Paddling along the coastline on crystal clear waters and discovering hidden beaches. We’ll hike ancient trails, and get into the wildest sections of Sardinia for a true adventure in nature. 

We’ve combined our active week with yoga, Acroyoga and SUP yoga. Our fantastic yoga instructor will lead us in a daily practice, the Vinyasa based class is dynamic and tailored to the individual so it’s perfect for all level yogis. 

 
 

SUP AND HIKE

This weeklong adventure is all about exploring stunning wild locations by land and foot. Standup paddleboarding will be the main activity throughout the week, we’ll be paddling on the sea and river, to explore beautiful coastlines, weaving our way through sea caves, playing in secluded bays and discovering hidden beaches. 

This SUP holiday is perfect for beginners, we do recommend you have a few SUP sessions before joining us, but we’ll have great coaching to improve your technique throughout the week.

We’ll also be hiking throughout the week, getting off the grid to explore perfectly preserved wilderness locations, trek to incredible view points and be immersed in nature. 

Each day we’ll be doing 4-7 hours of activities, we recommend a good level of fitness to get the most from this experience. 

Yoga

Our fantastic yoga instructor Lohene will guide us in a daily practice, great for all level yogis. 

If you’ve never even set foot on a mat, no problem, there’s a common misconception that you have to be flexible to do yoga. Our instructor is highly experienced and will guide you through the practice, teaching you about breath work and adapting the postures for your body and level. 

Yoga is fantastic not only for improving flexibility, strength and balance (great for paddleboarding) it’s also a great way to unwind and reconnect with yourself. 

During this retreat we’ll also have an AcroYoga workshop on the beach, pairing up to explore new balance postures.

We’ll combine our yoga practices with SUPyoga; paddling to beautiful bays on the shoreline and taking in some beautiful sunsets.

Food 

Food as always plays an important role on our retreats, it’s a time for the group to come together and share their experiences from the day, to laugh and connect over a glass of great wine. 

We can’t wait to indulge in delicious healthy food, sampling Sardinian slow food specialities and traditional dishes all grown, produced and prepared locally. We’ll be eating in fantastic restaurants and with local host families for an authentic experience. 

We couldn’t go to Sicily without sampling the wine, we’ve arrange two wine tours and tastings with fantastic local vineyards, to learn about the history of wine in the region. 

Location 

We’ll be staying in Bosa, one of Italy’s most picturesque villages. This pretty medieval town, set along the river banks of River Temo, with pastel coloured houses stacked along the hillside below it’s own castle. During the week we’ll have plenty of opportunities to explore the cobblestone streets and lively piazzas teeming with people enjoying the Mediterranean sunshine. 

Our base will be a lovely 3 star hotel, with light and airy rooms. Choose from a private double room or twin room to share with another Gutsy Girl. Over 95% of our guests join our trip solo, with activity filled days and group dinners you’ll be in great company throughout the trip.
