All meals included

Recharge, reconnect, and re-center on a wellness-oriented fitness retreat at the heart of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.

Embrace your inner wild with our uniquely exuberant blend of fitness and adventure activities designed to help cultivate a deep sense of vitality, radiance, and well-being. This immersive and holistic approach to building strength, fitness, flexibility and body awareness is centred around the idea of Nature as a playground, an outdoor gym and a place of infinite possibility for exploration and mindful movement!

Take an invigorating plunge on a coasteering adventure, a full-body experience traversing the intertidal zone where the land meets the sea. Catch the wave of your breath in a calming, grounding, and restorative outdoor yoga class with fresh Atlantic sea air and the soundtrack of birdsong through the valley. Exercise balance and control as you learn to paddle and pop on peeling beach breaks with expert surf tuition. Stimulate the senses and uncover the meaning of thermogenesis and thalassotherapy, the profound healing effects of wild sea swimming!

Preseli Venture is fully-qualified, friendly and professional fitness instructors and adventure guides are there every step of the way to make sure each individual meets their appropriate edge, gets a healthy dose of endorphins and, most importantly, leaves feeling invigorated, inspired and positively effervescent!

Adventurers return to our beautiful marshmallow pink eco-lodge, a welcoming sanctuary tucked into the folds of the Abermawr Valley, where healthy home-cooked meals await. Gather around a bonfire under the stars or curl up in front of the flickering wood-burner; Preseli Venture is the perfect retreat to relax and unwind after an energetic day.

Program

From the moment you arrive, you will be in the safe hands of your dedicated fitness instructor who has lovingly curated every element of your fitness and adventure journey, and will be with you every step of the way, so that you can feel confident to dive right in and experience the pure, soul-nourishing freedom of the Pembrokeshire Coast. You will arrive on Friday evening in time for a delicious welcoming meal, followed by a dynamic two-day itinerary including wild sea swimming, coasteering, surfing, yoga, woodland trail running, and coastal path power walking.

Daily Itinerary (may change in accordance with tides and conditions)

Friday

Arrive at the eco-lodge as early as 5:00 p.m., stretch your legs with a short walk or run down through the woods to Abermawr, the secluded local beach, and breathe the fresh Atlantic sea air. Return and settle into your cozy lodge with a welcoming evening meal at 7:30 p.m. and relax, ready for tomorrow’s adventure.

Saturday

In the morning, you will be boosted by a fresh fruit smoothie, greet the day, and work up some heat in the body with a lively woodland run through the ancient wooded valley and down to Abermawr, the local beach where they encourage you to wake up the senses with a refreshing wild sea swim in crystal clear, aquamarine waters. Run or walk back to the lodge for a full Welsh breakfast then head off to a wild coasteering spot for your first adventure. Swim, scramble, climb, and leap, encountering rushing gullies, whirling plunge pools, and spurting blow-holes.

Coasteering is a full-body workout and you will be working muscles you never knew you had. Warm-up back at the lodge with some cawl (a Welsh soup) and warm crusty bread before they drop you off on the Pembrokeshire Coast path for an afternoon Power Walk back to the lodge. From this up and down the well-traversed trail, swathed in sea campion, yellow gorse, and pink thrift flowers, you can spot inquisitive grey seals lazing on the rocky shoreline, pods of harbor porpoise and Atlantic sea birds fishing, peregrines diving, and kittiwakes nesting.

Breathe deep the Atlantic sea air and feel the wind on your face, a wonderful mental health tonic. Once you arrive back at the lodge, hop into something comfy, take it down a notch, and re-center yourself with a calming, grounding, and Restorative outdoor yoga class. Catch the wave of your breath as you flow through this gentle Vinyasa.

Create inner space and expansion using your inhale and allow your exhale to guide you more deeply into the stretches. Let go of any expectations about yoga shapes, get curious and surrender to the sensation, finding what feels awesome for your body. The evening is yours to gather around a bonfire for some stargazing or chill out on the sofa with a book.

Sunday

After a full breakfast to fuel you up, you will seek out the swell for a revitalizing surf adventure. Warm-up and stretch it out on the sand before paddling out and practicing your pop. Navigate past the breaking waves and hone your wave selection, find your feet, turn, and trim, all under expert guidance. With some of the best sand-bottom beach breaks in Wales, crystal clear waters, and clean summer swells, you will be riding waves in no time.

After a healthy lunch, you will leave the lodge feeling enlivened and rejuvenated having experienced the transformative power of the ocean and Atlantic sea air. As an indulgent finish to the weekend, book yourself a spa or well-earned massage treatment before you head off home.
