Mallorca Yoga & Hiking Retreat
All Yoga Levels
Feb. 3rd- 10th 2018
We would love to spend some quiet time with like-minded people, enjoy hiking and yoga and the company of old & new friends.
Lluc is not a monestary, but a sacred forest of Prehistory and the first Sanctuary on the island of Mallorca that was dedicated to the Virgin Mary, dating back to the 13th Century.
Here the faithful will rediscovery the distinctive identity of our local Church, whilst non-believers can find the origins of the Mallorcan people, because Lluc is more than a sanctuary, it is a secular national symbol.
The place and accommodation are an unexpected oasis of tranquillity, of spirituality, of artistic heritage and most of all, of unspoilt countryside: the Tramuntana mountains and the near by and also the beautiful Botanical Garden.
The Sanctuary of Lluc is the perfect place from which we set out and explore the Tramuntana Mountains on foot. It´s just an amazing place and we can start our hikes from Luc every morning without any transfers.
Close to the Sanctuary you will find some of the best know peaks on the island such as the Puig de Massanella, the Puig de Tomir, the Puig d’en Galileu and the Puig Roig, all of which will delight those who love heights. There are also a number of caves and torrents (dry river beds) nearby including the well know Torrent de Parais and the Torrent de Mortitx. Another enjoyable way to explore the surroundings is by following one of the old pilgrim trails that link Lluc with Inca and Pollensa.
The accommodation consists several rooms, all of which have private bathroom.
The rooms are simply furnished – no chi chi at all, but bright and spacious. You choose: single or double room.
But whichever you choose you are sure to have an unforgettable experience, imbued with the peace and tranquillity. The rooms with views of the mountains allow to experience unique sensations: the scent of the countryside at dawn, the beauty of sunset and the silence that reigns in the mountains at niqht. The rooms overlooking the lovely central courtyard are just as appealing. In either of these room types you can appreciate the beauty of these emblematic buildings and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of this important religious and cultural centre.
The Karmahike-Trip includes breakfast, all other meals have to be purchased individually.
We´ll picnick in the mountains for lunch and dine in one of the restaurants back home at Luc.
The dining options offer something for all tastes and budgets: a simple sandwich or a paella in the recreation area of Ca s’Amitger or the Centenary Meeting Place, or a set menu or a la carte in one of the restaurants.
There are also some Shops at Lluc. You will find a bakery to serve basic needs. It is said that at Lluc you can drink the purest water.

What to bring:
The Balearic Islands are a beautiful destination all year around. In March its usually dry and sunny, hiking is also easily possible. But of course, you never really know how the weather in the mountains can change. In the Tramuntana mountains we can expect 15-20 degrees. Which is perfect for hiking so we´ll definitely enjoy our hikes!
Please bring the following items:
- Warm jumper/pullover
- Hiking/trekking shoes, proper grip necessary (No sneakers or running shoes!)
- Wind & rainproof jacket
- Backpack (daypack) and drinking bottle
- Hair dryer, if needed
- Your own yoga mat

Airfares and transportation to and from the airport need to be booked individually. The closest airport is Palma de Mallorca (PMI). Many Airlines offer affordable tickets to Palma. The airfares and transportation costs to and from the airport (needs to be paid on the bus) and are not included in the package. That said, karmahike does not organize the transfer to and from the airport of Palma to Lluc. But it is very easy to take a bus after arrival from the airport and getting to Lluc. If you have any questions, please don´t hesitate to contact us – we´re happy to help you.
Mon-Fri buses leave at 10 AM and 4.15 PM from the center. The trip takes around an hour.
