Powering the Adventure Revolution

Coastal Hiking & Yoga Escape 28 - 30 July

  This summer escape to the beautiful Gower peninsula to discover breathtaking coastal views and ancient monuments along the clifftop trails, with time to relax on award-winning beaches and the chance to unwind with optional yoga sessions.

On the first day there’ll be an early morning yoga session for all abilities on the beach before breakfast (or you can lie in if you prefer!). Then we’ll set off on a guided walk round the stunning Rhossili headland taking in magnificent panoramic views - on the way you might even see the Helvetia shipwreck. After a picnic on the beach we’ll spend the afternoon making our way along the cliffs past Rhossili Down and up past Llangenith to discover more of the northern end of the Gower peninsula, including the famous Blue Pool.

We’ll start the second day with another optional outdoor yoga session, before heading off with our guide following the coast round towards Three Cliffs Bay, where we’ll see the beautiful Grade II-listed ruins of Pennard Castle. You’ll then have the rest of the day to practice your yoga skills on the sands or explore the other beaches around Gower.

In the evenings we’ll have exclusive use of cosy group accommodation, nestled in the sand dunes only 100m from the beach. Expect home-cooked meals and lots of space to hang out with like-minded people in the leafy and tranquil grounds. You don’t need to have any previous hiking or yoga experience as we’ll be accompanied by qualified guides and instructors.

If you've never come on an EC Adventure before, they're informal, friendly and great fun. We generally have singles, couples and small sets of friends coming along, from outdoor enthusiasts to adventure professionals - what we all share is a love for adventure. Ages tend to range between mid 20s and mid 40s but anyone over 18 years old and young at heart is welcome.
