This is a group trip for at least eight participants per day. week. The tour is possible from 12 - 26 June 2020 and you choose which of the weeks you want to go. If anyone wants to be away for both weeks then it is possible, but it is necessary to contact us.
Kalymnos is a gem in the Greek archipelago. A place where it feels like time is slowing down and everyday worries are even further away.
Our place is in the small town of Panormos tucked away behind cypress, orange and lemon trees - and flowers. The official name of the place is Hotel Elies and now the old walls form the framework of something new. A yoga retreat in Kalymnos, where yoga is practiced and enjoyed under the expert guidance of skilled yoga teacher Maria Cruz.
A week consists of seven nights with two yoga sessions per day. There is a swimming pool, fantastic beaches and offers of other activities around - such as hiking, scuba diving and climbing, for those who want to experience more. Breakfast is included at the hotel and for lunch and dinner you can go out and dine together at the many good restaurants in the area.
This trip is for everyone regardless of yoga experience. The only thing we recommend is an open mind and desire to join.

Built in 1989 in the middle of the town of Panormos on Kalymnos, Hotel Elies offers beautiful gardens, great views and an amazing 5-star diving center. The hotel also has a lovely swimming pool - which is part of the dive training - and a cozy bar. The hotel's rooms are comfortable, and they all have a veranda with garden view, fridge, and air conditioning. Within walking distance to the hotel, you will find some of the best beaches in Kalymnos, restaurants, ouzo taverns and climbing areas. The hotel is a little worn in some places, but the atmosphere and breakfast is very good.
You arrive at Kalymnos and Hotel Elies, where you are shown to your room. Now you have time to relax and enjoy the start of your holiday.
You spend the days doing yoga twice a day for six days and if your muscles are sore you can book a massage with Maria. In addition, Kalymnos has a whole lot to offer. For example, the island is perfect for rock climbing, scuba diving, beach relaxation, swimming and hiking. Remember to visit the neighboring island of Telendos, where the words "peace and quiet" take on a whole new meaning.
The retreat is over and it is time for you to return to Kos and fly home.
If you want a single room this is possible for a small supplement. Simply tap "Change my booking" on the booking form and change the room to single room.

The transfer from Kos airport to the hotel at Kalymnos is not included in the price of the trip. We have not included this because it is easy to do yourself - and much cheaper. Here's how:
1. You arrive at Kos airport, from where you take a bus (2 euros per person) or a taxi (15 euros per taxi) to Mastichari. You can also just tell the bus/taxi driver Kalymnos.
2. You buy a ticket for the ferry (about 8 euros per person). You can enjoy a nice boat trip in the southern Greek archipelago.
3.When you arrive in Kalymnos, you take a bus (2 euros per person) or a taxi (15 euros per taxi) to Hotel Elies in Panormos.
If you are unsure about anything along the way, you will be able to contact the hotel or Bering Travel for quick assistance. The numbers are on your voucher.
