About Your Trip

Desperate to escape the city for four days of wild swimming, cider tasting and yoga? Kick back at our countryside retreat in Streatley-on-Thames, where an expert instructor will introduce you to meditation. You don’t need to be an expert, these meditation sessions are aimed at beginners. However, this trip isn’t just about calming the mind. You’ll hike the Chiltern Hills, enjoy stand-up paddleboard (SUP) yoga on the River Thames, and sample award-winning local cider. Come nightfall, expect lively conversation around the dinner table while you tuck into sourdough pizzas and an Aperol spritz.

Covid Safety

Your safety and wellbeing are our top priority, so we’ve put the following measures in place on all our TRIPS:
  • Our average group size is 10 people (max 18), which gives you all the security of being in a group whilst avoiding a crowd.
  • Our private vehicles have daily assigned seating, and every day they undergo deep cleaning of all surfaces.
  • Where possible, we use small/ boutique accommodation – this means fewer guests and reduced exposure to other travellers.
  • We require all accommodation providers to share protocols around the extra health and hygiene measures they are taking.
  • Included activities are exclusive to our group wherever possible, to minimise contact with others.
  • Covid-19 negative test results or vaccine certificates may be required. Please check the entry requirements for the destination you are travelling to. Our travel experts can assist you in finding this information.
  • We recommend you confirm all guidance on official government sites and check that you are able to travel with your travel insurance issuer. Your travel insurance may be invalidated if you travel against government advice. Our travel experts can assist you in finding this information.
