YogaCruising is certainly one of the most enticing ways to travel around the Greek İslands and the Southern Turkey.
Our yachts provide from 6 – 20 cabins with twin beds or 2 single beds. Each cabin is equipped with WC, shower, air condition and a hair dryer. These yachts are “Gulets”. Traditionally crafted wooden sailing boats, of a length ranging from 25 to 50 meters, with 2 or 3 masts.
Each meal is freshly cooked on our YogaCruising tours and we serve a healthy, vegetarian, Mediterranean cuisine. Already the traditional Mediterranean Brunch breakfast consists of a plethora of locally Organic produced, high quality ingredients from the honey to the cheeses and vegetables. For dinner the meals are composed out of a variety of traditional vegetable dishes and salads, accompanied by bulgur, rice or potatoes. We always serve fresh fruit of the season as a dessert or as a snack for in between meals.
The Yoga sessions will be given by experienced yoga teachers , mostly on the sun deck, at some occasions on the beach. During the trips there is plenty of time to relax, to read or chat under a shady sail, with a quieting view over the sea. Twice daily (mornings and evenings) you can enjoy our modern yoga sessions, giving you physical exercise and deep relaxation.
A choice of excursions on land will give you plenty of opportunities to get to know the nature, the culture and the history of this region. Exquisite jaunts to historical, archeological sites, herb hiking tours, or a visit to a nomadic village or a traditional Turkish bath – a hammam. They all share enriching insights into the wealth of the eastern Mediterranean culture.

What does a Gulet look like?
Gulets are large wooden boats with comfort and service.
You don’t have to be at sailor to be able to love these boats. When you are strolling along the piers in the harbor of Bodrum or Marmaris, you will see these beauties all around. In fact the honey colored wooden details are dazzling in the sunlight. Turkish Gulets, as these boats are called, are built from pine wood and other precious woods, and then varnished and polished. Their bowsprit is pointing to the sea, through the opening of the harbor, their masts rise high into the sky and on the rear deck the Turkish flag is flowing all red in the wind, with its crescent moon and star Jupiter. A broad gangway brings you from the pier to the rear deck, where comfortable chairs around a large, wooden dining table are inviting you to spend some time.
