During 3 days, you can benefit from expert advice to improve your trail skills. In addition, you will get extra benefits from yoga: breathing, postures, mental preparation…

A complement of the journey will be the moments of wellbeing, with free access to the hotel spa. In particular, there’s an indoor pool, a hammam and sauna). You also have access to the Saisies aqua-fitness center. Furthermore, you will enjoy a recovery massage to make the best of the stay.

The trail outings in general will not be longer than 2 hours, ensuring an active but pleasant stay.

Performing well depends on listening to yourself and respecting your body. Therefore, yoga is extremely useful for trail practice. Yoga is a life philosophy and a complete tool. Both to complement trail practice and for everyday life!

The highlights of the trip are the following:
– An accessible trip for beginners

– The possibility to come with the family

In the ‘extra’ section below, you’ll find information about the required trail running level you need to have. You will also see the equipment that you need to bring with you.

During these 3 days we will run on average 10-15km a day and go up from 500 to 1000 meters. We will mainly be on large paths and non technical terrain.
