The archipelago of Sommarøy and its surroundings drives you feeling good by nature .
This is a great opportunity to discover the sophrology in a context of invigorating and rejuvenating outdoor activities.
The group includes 10 people maximum + a guide for outdoor activities and a sophrologist.
This stay is designed for lovers of wild nature who want to enjoy space and time, without rush. It takes place in stars from our eco-lodge, base camp and starting point of daily activities.
Sophrology is a discipline that can be practiced on a daily basis. Thus practiced, it makes it possible to act preventively on many functional disorders. Physical and mental health is a natural thing that is increasingly difficult to maintain in our societies. Our Western conditioning pushes us to use the techniques of well-being when things go wrong. You make an appointment with the doctor when you’re sick, don’t you? The tools of sophrology practiced on a daily basis, make it possible to anticipate and find a balance between body and mind, to know oneself better, to accept oneself as one is. This global approach promotes the general balance, clarifies our needs and frustrations while removing this unpleasant feeling of being bogged down and not getting out of it. Compromises are assumed, blocking points pointed out. We no longer sweep the dust under the carpet. Thus, the choices are easier. This holistic approach can avoid the damage of excessive stress that always arises from a conflict between reality and what we would like it to be. It is never too late to start 🙂 This is a vast program that it is illusory to be able to accomplish in five days. This introductory course in psycho-behavioral sophrology allows, thanks to the first tools, to start the path.
Every day, the guide will offer you a new adventure. You will discover the surrounding massifs and fjords by sailing kayak, bike or hiking depending on the weather and the aspirations of the group.
The small island of Sommarøy, on the west coast of Kvaløya, lies in the heart of a beautiful area protected from offshore swell by natural barriers to turquoise waters. At the edge of the fjords and the open sea, it is the domain of otters, puffins and fish eagles. The white sandy beaches give a curious tropical touch to these steep and wild landscapes.
The hiking possibilities are vast. There is something for all tastes and all levels.

From Saturday to Wednesday, the program is not fixed and will be decided in real time according to the conditions of the moment in order to optimize the discovery of the immense and generous surrounding nature. Sophrology activities are scheduled at the center but can also be integrated into a day if the conditions allow the practice of sophrology in the field. Whether by kayaking, cycling or walking, you can enjoy walks, viewpoints or moments of contemplation that will undoubtedly leave you with unforgettable memories.
We are also planning a day off where everyone can go about their business freely. During this day, there will be the possibility, for those who wish, to join the activities of the center, to return to specific points in sophrology or simply stay at the lodge or around to read or stroll.
