THE FINER DETAILS
Travel day and transfers
Travel days are the beginning and end dates of the programme (arrival Sunday 19th May, departure Sunday 26th May). Your holistic bootcamp programme will begin on the morning following your arrival.
We can arrange for our minibus driver to transfer you from Dalaman airport to Huzur Vadisi. The transfer cost of approximately £40pp return is an average guide price. The price can vary depending on numbers of transfer trips and passengers so you may wish to check with The House of Yoga about flights to keep your transfer costs down.
It is worth considering flights that include 1 stop as the prices are often far less. We advise you to arrive at Huzur vadisi no later than Sunday afternoon/early evening, as the programme will begin early the following morning.
Please make sure we have your flight number and arrival time so that transfers can be arranged well in advance and everyone informed. It’s important for us to have your flight number in case of delayed flights.

Venue HighlightsIn a secluded mountain valley, surrounded by pine forest, the yurt accommodation nestles amid olive and fig groves. It is an oasis of peace in natural surroundings, simple and rustic with shared bathroom facilities, yet comfortable and beautifully maintained with all conveniences in the yurts.
At night the valley is dark, revealing all the beauty of the night sky. At full moon it is truly magical to see the forest and valley bathed in moonlight. Huzur Vadisi’s setting brings a deep connection with the natural world that immeasurably enhances the benefits of yoga practice.
The combination of great yoga, stunning unspoiled location, welcoming experienced staff and legendary food creates an experience for which teachers and guests have been returning year after year.
The spacious yoga shala has room for up to twenty-eight to practice and is fully equipped with mats, belts, blocks, bolsters and blankets.
The natural stone swimming pool is the perfect place to relax, as is the ‘kosk’ a traditional Turkish ‘treehouse’ which is the natural spot for a siesta. There is also a bar where you can help yourself to a drink (honesty system) or take a book from the library.
AccommodationsHuzur Vadisi can accommodate up to a maximum of thirty in twin, triple and single bed yurts, with plenty of showers and loos in the spotless shared bathroom facilities. See the stars from your bed at night through the ‘eye of heaven’ at the apex of the yurts.
There are plugs for your hairdryer in the yurts! Turkey has 2-pin plugs, so you will need to bring an adaptor.
