LET’S GO

Get ready to explore the South Island of New Zealand for 8 days. If this isn’t something to look forward to I don’t know what is! This retreat is packed full of adventure, you won’t want to miss it. 

New Zealand will blow you away at every turn. Just when you think you have had the most incredible day, just wait! It doesn’t stop.

Every detail of this retreat is carefully considered so you can experience as much of this beautiful country as possible. Unlike previous LPY Retreats, this trip will not focus on yoga and workouts, but instead we will prioritize daily activities and experiences in New Zealand.

Daily activities are always optional, so you can make this retreat as adventurous or chill as you want.

This retreat is limited to only 10 people. Don’t wait to reserve your spot, this one will sell out fast.

 

SOUTH ISLAND

Our adventure will begin in Queenstown where we will get adjusted to the time zone and explore this lakeside city and amazing views of the Southern Alps.

Our private driver will then take us into Fiordland to Milford Sound. This breathtaking location is a must-see. Our accommodations include Riverview Chalets at Milford Sound Lodge!

Our next destination will be Monapouri, at the south coast of the island overlooking Doubtful Sound.

Continuing on our adventure we will take time to explore the Catlins. This region of New Zealand is remote and untouched. We will hike to waterfalls and caves. You can expect to discover sea lions, penguins and seals right on the beach!

Finally we will finish our retreat in Dunedin. This urban city is a drastic contrast to the rugged landscape of the southern part of the island.

Hotels are carefully considered for this retreat! We will be moving through the South Island staying no more than 2 nights in any one place. Breakfast will be provided daily.
