In light of the current international situation we would like to reassure you regarding the location of our retreats in Turkey. We are more than 1000 km from the Syrian border (similar to travelling from London to Oslo) and 800 km from Istanbul.
As those of you who have visited us before know, we are in a peaceful rural area and even our local town is not a tourist ‘hotspot’ resort, so very unlikely to attract any potential problem. We are carrying on as normal, as confident as one can be in these times.
Here is a website with an update and some good objective advice regarding travel in Turkey
Monday (and occasionally Saturday) is travel day and yoga courses start on the following morning.
Huzur Vadisi: The transfer to Huzur Vadisi is 45 minutes. We can arrange transfers for you. The transfer cost of £20pp each way is based on 5 group transfers on travel day. If you arrive or leave very late, or on another day, you may be charged the full transfer cost of £45 one–way.
The Pomegranate and Suleyman’s Garden: The transfer is 1.5 hours from Dalaman airport. We can arrange a minibus or taxi transfer for you. The price depends on your arrival time and numbers. It can be between £20 to £50 pp each way. It may involve linking up with or waiting for others to arrive.
We let everyone know the most convenient and least expensive options for travel when we have all the flight information for your group. It is worth checking with your teacher before booking your flight to see when others are arriving to keep your transfer costs down.
There are several companies flying to Turkey. Due to most charter flights from UK to Dalaman being on a Monday, generally that is our travel day (with a few exceptions).
Prices vary according to time of booking or season. It is advisable to book early to get the best prices.
