The 6 Top Weekend Breaks in Spain to Rejuvenate

Spanish getaways have been a popular short break choice for Europeans and others for a long time now. And there is good reason for this. The weather, beaches, food and relaxed atmosphere account for most.

Wherever you go you will find a pervasive holiday ambience which will always support you in completely immersing yourself in an enjoyable getaway. Everything is on offer here – fitness, meditation, yoga, pilates, spa, detox, all types of retreats takes place in Spain.

So if you have the time then book a retreat, maybe grab a friend or two and make your way to some nourishing rejuvenation on a long weekend getaway to Spain, or week-long retreat. Flights within Europe are cheap and convenient so it’s not too much trouble to travel here. 

There are the Balearic islands off the east coast of Spain – popular destinations of Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza, and Formentera. Or there are the all-year round Canary islands near Africa, mainly Tenerife, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria and Lanzarote.

You can opt for a holiday on the mainland in urban Barcelona or maybe around Malaga, or consider Andalusia (a region in the south of peninsular Spain). You can always decide to follow the popular trail to one of Spain’s many beautiful sun-scorched islands.

1. 6 Day Yoga and Hiking Holiday Alicante in Spain

From $1250 ; Dates- Multiple months of the year

Morning yoga sessions focus on simple flowing sequences to stretch muscles and open joints whilst synchronising your breath with movement so that your practice becomes like a calming moving meditation.
Evening classes are more restorative where you will hold postures a little longer using the breath to move deeper within and reconnect with your inner peace.

The first walk is an easy 13k guided route through quiet lanes and country tracks close to the hotel. You’ll pass country houses, crops of oranges, lemons, olives, figs and avocados before heading towards the sea and back to the hotel. 

The second is a 4-5 hour hike on a mountain – the second highest peak on the coast. But don’t worry, you’ll not be climbing to the top. Instead you’ll be walking around the mountain to enjoy the full 360-degree views across the neighbouring mountains and down to the sea. 

There’s also a chance to do a 3rd self guided hike along the coast with maps provided by the team. All walks are of course optional.
When not hiking or doing yoga, the team has a few other optional activities you can join– there’s a guided bike ride, Spanish cookery workshop or, you can lay back and let the fantastic therapists pamper you with their soothing treatments and massages.

This retreat program includes -5-night accommodation, 7 x 90-minute morning and evening yoga sessions, meditation workshop with caring, experienced teachers, guided 13k ‘coast and country’ walk on your first morning, guided hike in the mountains with a picnic lunch, hearty buffet breakfasts, wholesome vegetarian evening suppers on all but 2 evenings, and daily herbal teas & fresh fruits to help you slowly awaken.

Plus well-being gifts to help you unwind and the services of an experienced retreat host who is constantly on hand to ensure you don’t have to lift a finger.

Yoga helps to stretch and tone your body muscles. Strong muscles protect us from conditions like arthritis and backpain. Daily Yoga helps improve posture and you will soon feel you walk taller and sit up straighter. Yoga prevents cartilage and joint breakdown as it helps take your joints through a full range of motions.

Yoga poses require movement backwards and forwards, with many twists which help to keep the spinal disks supple. Gentle Yoga positions fuel the metabolic system and help burn fat leading to weight loss. Daily Yoga also strengthens the mind body connection which is important to deal with emotions that are related to issues such as using food to suppress feelings.
