The Best Yoga Retreats for Hiking

Yoga and hiking in Mongolia

As the number one retreat company for remarkable locations, Reclaim Your Self naturally delivers the best yoga retreats for hiking. We figured out long ago that epic hikes over mountain ranges and glaciers are the perfect complement to yoga classes, adventure activities and ultimate relaxation.

No longer just the domain of ramblers groups and Boy Scouts, hiking is enjoying a resurgence right now, and with good reason. The benefits of explorative walking are plentiful. Hiking is a fantastic workout alongside your retreat yoga classes, you gain a wonderful sense of accomplishment and gratitude when you reach the zenith of a mountain peak or make it across a vast glacier, and it’s a fantastic way to get the real health benefits of nature!

There really is no better way to explore the boundless wonder that is Planet Earth than by lacing up your hiking boots and hitting the trails.

Journey with us to the Arctic Circle to claim the dramatic mountains and beautiful fjords of North Western Norway as your hiking playground. Our motto for our Norway retreat is get out and explore! And you will be spoilt for choice with opportunity to get your hiking boots on and see all Norway has to offer in the best way: on foot!

Earn some serious hiker points with a day trip to Husfjellet mountain. We travel there by boat through the fjords before embarking on a guided ramble through wild nature and beautiful flora. With a stop along the way for a healthy lunch picnic, we will climb to the top to enjoy the prize of our exertions: an unparalleled view over the Norwegian mountains and out to sea. Nearby Sukkertoppen mountain is another hikers’ paradise and makes for an epic climb.
