Mindful walking in Somiedo Natural Park, Asturias, Spain

Walkinginspirit is a 7-day, mindful walking retreat. It’s an opportunity to take time out of daily life and completely immerse in the tranquility of Western Europe’s most prisitine natural ecosystem. Relax, learn and thoroughly embed a mindfulness practice as you walk paths still used by bears and wolves in the breathtaking forests and mountains of Somiedo Natural Park, Asturias Spain.

Join us for a restorative week of relaxation, mindfulness and walking. 


The retreat includes accommodation, transport within Asturias, breakfast and lunch as well as guidance in all retreat activities. See other pages and Practicalities for more detailed information.

2015 and 2016 retreat dates are listed on the Reservations page. Please have a good look around the site and do call or message me if there is anything in particular you would like to know.

Walking in Asturias, walking in Somiedo.

I very much look forward to walking with you.
