Portugal - Bering Travel Surf, SUP & Yoga Retreat 2020

This tour is a group holiday, which we run all summer long and every week we have room for 12 guests in The Mansions. Each week there are three days of surfing, two days of Stand Up Paddle and four mornings of yoga. You can participate in as many activities as you wish.

All weeks are guaranteed and in 2018 all weeks except for one were sold out!

You should expect a social experience, where you meet and have fun with new people while you learn to surf (or improve), stand up paddle and do yoga.

Breakfast is included every day, lunch is served on the beach when we go surfing (not SUP) and two evenings pr. week, the cook Rachel serves delicious dinners. The other evenings we usually go out together in various restaurants (great ones!).

The average age varies from week to week, but is typically around 30-35 years. However, we often have guests who are both younger and much older than this - and everyone is welcome. It is usually about half of the group, who are solo travelers.

Lagos in the Algarve is an amazing town. Here you will find everything you could want from an active holiday, such as amazing surf spots, beautiful beaches, great yoga shala, excellent restaurants, a great place to stay, and of course the great weather and happy people. Here you will find everything you want regardless if you are looking for relaxation or if you want to have fun in the evenings.

Highlights on this tour

  • 3 days of awesome surfing 
  • 2 days of cozy SUP-tours 
  • Rejuvenating yoga
  • Rachel's fantastic home-made food
  • Relaxation and socializing with the other travellers

Accomodation

The Mansions

We simply couldn't find a better place to stay in Lagos. The Mansions are located on one of the small narrow streets in the old part of town. From here you have everything at your fingertips. The property consists of two apartments with two rooms each and two external rooms (12 beds in total). All of this is connected by a small courtyard where we eat breakfast, relax and have fun. All rooms are double rooms of which three have twin beds and three have doublebeds. In the ground floor of each apartment there is a fully equipped kitchen.

Fishing trip with a local, dolphin watching, wakeboarding, hiking, see the end of the world (Sagres) or if you just want to relax on the most beautiful beaches in the Algarve. There is lots of options. We are more than willing to help you.

Day 6 SUP

Today it is the first SUP- lesson, this is a sunrise tour in the grottos of Lagos. It is an early departure to the beach, but it is worth it. In summer there is usually no wind in the morning and there are no crowds/ boats or people in the water. We get picked up around 6.40am and breakfast will be after. We suggest eating some fruit or nuts before and bring water. The tour ends around 9-10am we get a lift back to The Mansions where breakfast is ready.

The rest of the day is free to explore the area.

This is depending on the conditions! We might have to cancel the sunrise tour if there is waves on the south-coast. Then we might have to drive to a river further north.

Today we start with yoga at 7:30am, breakfast at 8:45 am. Pick up for SUP river tour (depending on the tide) after 10am the tour will be around 3h. There is no lunch or water included.

This evening we have a farewell dinner together.

Food & drink

Daily breakfast is included in the price and lunch is included with all surf-trips (not SUP). That means that lunch is included on sundays, mondays and tuesdays. Our great friend, the chef Rachel makes us two amazing dinners at the surf house were we eat with the other surfers- including free home made sangria. All other evenings, everyone who wants to, goes together to specific great restaurants. Expect that an evening meal incl. drinks cost around 20-25 euro. It is no problem if you are a vegan, vegetarian or have any other dietary preference.

Accommodation

The Mansions is located smack in the middle of the old part of Lagos - within the old city walls. That means that restaurants, bars, shops ect. are literally located 50m from where you will be staying. Four of the six rooms have ensuite bathrooms and the last two rooms share one bathroom/toilet. If it is important for you to have your own bathroom then you select it on the booking form. If rooms with private bathroom happen to be sold out for your chosen week, we will contact you.

Three of the rooms have twin beds and and three rooms have double-beds. In the booking form  you can select which type of room you prefer. If your choice is not available, we will contact you. Notice that the double-beds are big, so two friends will not have any problem sleeping next to one another.

Yoga is taught by Maria, she has many years of experience with retreats and surf and yoga. She is amazing at feeling and listening to the group and will prepare the yoga lesson so it will best suit your needs
