In your free time, you will have an opportunity to explore Goa and try a variety of activities!
Our Programme includes three exciting excursions:
Sunset Boat Trip
A trip on a local motor fishing boat on the Arabian sea to visit nearby beaches, admire the sunset and dolphins
Three-day Trip to Dandeli National Reserve
We will spend three days and two nights in a remote, secluded homestay in the middle of the jungle, run by a lovely local family. The food served here is locally-grown and prepared by the hosts with the best ingredients. There will be 3 meals per day and 2 snacks with tea or coffee (all included in your package price). Accommodation will be shared in simple, but clean and comfortable tents or bungalows.
The first day will be arrival day. On the second day, after the morning yoga class, we will go on a nature walk and explore the local area, while on the third day you will have time to relax or go rafting (optional, not included in the price). Surrounded by nature and isolated from the hustle and bustle of your every-day life, you will have a chance to relax, wind down, meditate and explore Goa in a different way. We will return to Palolem in the evening of the third day.
Old Goa and Spice Farm
After the morning yoga class and brunch, we will head to North Goa, visitng Sakahari Spice Farm and the world heritage sites of Old Goa and Panaji (the capital) with its Portugese-style architecture.
On the way back we will stop at Dona Paula, a famous view spot, to watch the sunset.
If you have visited these places before or have attended the previous Gorgeous Goa Holiday, and you would like to join us again, there is a possibility of adding a 5-day trip to Hampi with yoga instead of the three excursions listed above. If you are interested please let us know at least 2 months before the retreat start date. The trip happens with minimum 4 participants and may include an extra charge.
A variety of other activities and excursions can be arranged upon request (these are optional and not included in your package price):
Dudhsagar Waterfall trip
Trip to Gokharna and/or Murudeshwara
River Crab fishing
Saturday night market (Arpora, North Goa)
Saturday night headphone party
Above are some photos for your reference. Please let us know if you're interested in any of the activities listed and we will let you know the cost and arrange them for you (please note that there's a specific minimum number of participants required for canyoning, so let us know early in case you are interested).
