Where are the best yoga retreats in Europe?
Europe is massive and while there are plenty of retreats across the continent, these destinations offer the most retreat options.
Portugal is a hot spot for yoga retreats because many combine surfing and hiking with yoga. These activities are superb to complement yoga and vice versa.
Add in that Portugal is absolutely stunning, and is the cheapest country in western Europe…it makes it an extremely popular destination for a yoga holiday. Book early!
Spain’s Canary Islands attract people to yoga retreats for relaxation and beautiful views. You can find retreats in Spain from Barcelona to Ibiza and even retreats that are hosted on a sailboat.
Since Italy is on the coast, many yoga retreats in Sardinia and Sicily combine activities in the water with yoga. Add in some Italian food and a relaxing atmosphere, in Tuscany, and you’ve got a top destination for yoga retreats.
Greece entices visitors not just for its scenery but because the country has so much to offer. Here you can find retreats across many of the Greek Islands and on the mainland in the hills for a relaxing holiday.
The UK is a great spot for countryside cottage retreats and to be immersed in nature. Many retreats in the UK are shorter, making them ideal for weekend getaways.

Where should I book yoga retreats?
My go-to, BookYogaRetreats is where I do my research to find the best yoga retreats based on location and reviews.
I love the search functions and details they give upon first glance, like what language the retreat is taught in and if multiple booking dates are available.
Plus, you have more flexibility when it comes to cancellations.
My second option is BookRetreats, which offers a diverse mix of meditation, and overall wellness retreats too. I love the option to choose what kind of atmosphere I want, for example, couples, families, or solo travelers.
Why not just book directly? You can! But I recommend looking through either of these sites to read reviews first. They have great search options and they can help you find retreats you may not ever know existed!
