June 9 - 16, 2023  |  The Islands of Santorini and Crete, Greece

Wellness in Crete & Santorini
A mindful retreat into the rich and ancient culture of Greece.

Combine Culture & Self-Care on the Greek Islands

This 7-night culturally immersive retreat offers the perfect blend of guided exploration and self-care as you soak up the beauty of all Greece has to offer.

Spend three nights at the Cresanto Luxury Suites on Santorini and four nights at the Enagron Ecotourism Village on Crete while enjoying daily mind/body wellness sessions led by Lindsay plus guided excursions that highlight the rich culture and natural beauty of Greece. 

Nourished for Life

Nourish body, mind and spirit as you experience two of the most vibrant islands in the Mediterranean.

Our 8-day journey will start in Santorini, one of the most famous islands in the Mediterranean and end in Crete, Greece’s largest island with any array of historical and natural wonders:

 

  • Enjoy a guided scenic hike on Santorini and free time to explore this picturesque island.

  • Learn about the volcanic winemaking process and partake in an onsite wine tasting.

  • Wander across the forests and fields of Crete through a majestic network of botanical paths as your guide teaches you about vegetation that has been linked with myth, worship, and pharmaceuticals from the ancient times until today.

  • Engage in a local and authentic cooking class, learning about the ingredients and recipes as you enjoy your creations.

  • Visit the 3,500-year-old Minoan palace of Knossos, a sprawling maze of royal chambers, grand staircases, storerooms, and workshops thought to be Europe's oldest city.

  • Experience a 3-hour catamaran cruise to take in a fresh perspective of Crete and its beauty from the majestic blue waters.

While soaking up all that Greece has to offer, you will also be invited to nourish body and mind via daily wellness sessions guided by Lindsay, in a beautiful outdoor setting, weather permitting.

 

Drawing on the unique energy of Greece, Lindsay will combine mindful movement, meditation and breath work practices to help you feel aligned in body, mind and spirit, supporting you in feeling fully present, alive and well on your tour of the Greek Islands.
