Join us June 3-9, 2019 as we head to Ikaria for a Surf + Yoga Holiday!
About the Island of Ikaria
Ikaria is a Greek island in the Aegean Sea, near the island of Samos. According to tradition, it derives its name from the mythological character Icarus, who fell into the sea when he flew too close to the sun. I first heard about Ikaria when I read this article in The New York Times. It tells the true story of a man who went to Ikaria to die and ended up living over 30 more years. Ikaria has some kind of magic– it has been called the island of longevity because one third of this Greek island’s population lives past 90 years old. Keeping in theme, this is a holiday where we encourage you to relax a lot,sleep late and adopt an Ikarian go-with-the-flow pace. 🙂
