Karmahike - eine Symbiose aus Wandern und Yoga
About Karmahike

Karmahike offers hiking & yoga trips that last 4 to 7 days. The primary focus is on easy- to medium-level day hikes, while daily yoga classes are also part of the package.  

Greece, Mallorca (Spain), the Alps (Germany, Austria and Italy) as well as the regions of Brandenburg and Uckermark (in the countryside, an hour from Berlin, Germany’s capital) are Karmahike’s primary destinations.

Daily hikes will last from 3 to 6 hours, with additional time for a daily yoga class. Karmahike’s group size is capped at 8-10 people travelling together.

Ayurvedic vegan and vegetarian meals are provided at some of the destinations. All organic products are carefully chosen, while an experienced Indian chef creates delicious and healthy meals for the group.

As well, Karmahike accommodations are artfully selected: in remote places surrounded by nature, with stunning views, and close to the ocean or in the mountains.

Who Are KarmaHikers?

Adults who love to hike four to six hours daily, who are comfortable with high elevation and uneven surfaces (mostly in the Alps). Some experience with yoga is appreciated, but not a precondition for travelling with Karmahike.

KarmaHike trips are ideal for nature lovers and people who care about a healthy and balanced lifestyle. People who want to recharge their batteries, who need a break and who want to relax actively.

KarmaHike offers trips for active people, who care about their impact, consume consciously and honor the simple things in life. KarmaHikers want to actively let go, and seek to get away from the usual distraction of TV, mobile phones and the Internet. People who book KarmaHike trips want to feel lighter and freer.  They enjoy flowers, trees, fresh and clean air, silence and the quiet power of nature. KarmaHikers are aware of their surroundings, love shared experiences, have perhaps traveled widely and are open-hearted and minded.

Singles, friends, couples and smaller groups, such as work teams, are welcome at KarmaHike. Smartphones, however, will remain at home. We want to be as we are and leave our busy career or family lives at home, at least for a couple of days.

UNSERE PHILOSOPHIE

Karmahike steht für Authentizität, für Ehrlichkeit und Offenheit. Für Naturverbundenheit und Inspiration, für Freiheit und Herzlichkeit, für Spiritualität und Genuss. Wir glauben, dass die Gedanken in der Stille zur Ruhe kommen. Dass wir durch die Bewegung und Anstrengung in der freien Natur Kraft schöpfen und uns stärken können. Dass wir uns durch das Naturerlebnis in einem neuen Verhältnis zu unserer Umwelt und unserem Umfeld setzen. Dass wir uns im „Hier und Jetzt“ bewegen und so mehr Energie und neue Ideen entstehen.

UNSERE PASSION

Karmahike ist mehr als nur Wandern und nur Yoga - es ist unsere gemeinsame Passion.
FINDE DEINEN AUSGLEICH AM BERG UND AUF DER MATTE. FINDE KRAFT IN DER NATUR. FINDE ZU DEINER INNEREN MITTE.

Über Karmahike-Wanderungen


Unsere Wandertouren variieren in Anspruch und Länge mit Wanderzeiten zwischen drei und maximal sechs Stunden täglich. Die Wanderungen sind keine Sonntags-Spaziergänge, sondern Halb-Tagestouren ohne Klettersteige, die für jedermann mit etwas Fitness gut zu bewältigen sind. Geführt werden die Wanderungen zumeist von Claudia. Sie ist passionierte Bergsteigerin und hat über zehn Jahre Erfahrung im Führen von Wandergruppen im In- und Ausland.
