We cannot imagine a better location for FloYo’s first Camper Van Adventure Retreat than Sardinia, Italy.Situated in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, Sardinia is the second largest island in the Mediterranean and it amazes visitors with its natural contrasts- the mountainous interior and the gorgeous white sand beaches and characteristic coves the line the 2,000 kilometers of coastline. We’ve designed this unique retreat to give you a one-of-a-kind travel experience that you will never forget!
Traveling in a campervan means freedom to explore the unknown, to improvise. Allow yourself to step out of your comfort-zone and explore nature, challenge yourself physically and mentally, and engage with unique environments.
Each day you’ll wake up to the beautiful sunrise and sea views and you will be guided through 20 minutes of meditation and yoga before enjoying a fresh local breakfast.
Throughout our week we will travel in our vans from the north-east to the west of the island, stopping at some of the most beautiful spots on the island where you can experience the wild side of Sardinia and swim in the beautiful turquoise waters.
As with all of our FloYo Travels retreats every day will be filled with new adventures from daily paddle excursions, hiking, freediving, Via Ferrata, paragliding, city tours and wine tasting. Through the variety of daily activities you will get a true sense of the beauty that is Sardinia! Plus, every day will include workshops on various forms of yoga – acro & SUP – and we explore partnered movement through gravity, weight distribution, and one-on-one connection. Please note that this is an extremely active retreat- all participants must be physically fit and ready for adventure!

Sardinian food satisfies the most demanding palates with its simple and natural ingredients. Sampling traditional cuisine is a large part of this retreat. You will learn how to eat healthier, through first hand experience dining with locals and learning how they eat with moderation but always with extreme pleasure. You will be amazed to rediscover what “real food” looks and tastes like. We provide nutritious food to refuel your body with three daily meals which are designed to be a balanced and tasty diet. We focus on lean meats and fish with delicious fresh vegetables. All our meals will be locally sourced with the freshest ingredients for optimal nutrition. In Sardinia our meals will become more than just fuel- but time to relax, unwind and truly appreciate the Italian culture.
We have 4 Stylish VW camper vans reserved for you. Yes, you will be driving your own van! Our vans (Fanny, Anna, Charlie and Leo) combine the best of the old and the new, contrasting the legendary status of retro VW campers with updated features for a comfy, fun road trip experience. Synonymous of freedom and adventure, the VW camper vans have been tastefully restored to offer maximum comfort and amenities! Each camper van will sleep 2 people and has it’s own fully stocked kitchenette, linens, outdoor seating and everything you need to be comfortable for a week of exploration. The vans are manual- we will have a mini- manual driving lesson on the 1st day for anyone who may be a bit rusty when it comes to driving a manual!
All of our daily activities will be dependent on the weather and conditions. The beauty of this retreat is that when we travel in the van we have freedom to go where we want based on the weather. Our planned activities are hiking, paddling, freediving, Via Ferrata and paragliding. We will also have daily yoga classes and bootcamp style workouts. As with all of our retreats, FloYo Fitness classes will also be included. We will do at least one signature FloYo class, one FloYo Fit class and one SloFlo class during the week (weather pending).
