+ 13 days, with 11 days of hiking + Up to 30 hours of transformational activities + Invigorating coastal breeze & plenty of vitamin D + For women who want a Greater Life + Fulfilling and enriching experience + Big bang for your bucks and boots Rugged, remote, and spectacularly defined by sculptured shorelines, secluded coves, and sun-drenched dunes with groovy vegetation, especially in Spring. We’ll visit charming whitewashed villages along the way, and there are opportunities galore to go for a dip or two in the cooling waters of the Atlantic Ocean from one of the many ridiculously gorgeous beaches. This is an awesome hike where the coastal vibe delivers its alchemical magic. It's a transformational walk for women. I'm coordinating it as a test run for my transformational hiking business. So the intention is to lead it as if it were the real thing and that by joining in, you participate in the transformational activities included in the trip. This is free for you and by the end, you'll walk away feeling lighter and brighter, ready to boldly pursue your Greater Life. THE HIKE We start in Lagos and head north to finish in Porto Covo walking mostly along the coast with a few inland deviations. It's pretty spectacular scenery with views for miles, and of course, there are daily challenges to face. Primarily it's a sandy trail without much shelter or shade which can be a tad exhausting. It can also be really windy and we'll be going up and down a lot to access beaches and navigate cliffs. The daily walk times vary between 4.5 - 8 hours and there are no rest days included. It all adds up to a hike that's overall moderately challenging. You'll need to be relatively fit and capable of carrying a pack with plenty of water, clothing, overnight essentials, and daily food. There are luggage transport services available if you want to walk light, but these will need to be self-organised. THE TRANSFORMATION PROGRAM Includes a wide variety of tasks, activities, and challenges to help you grow and experience the magic of your deeper intelligence! It's a highly participatory trip, and as a thru-hike including a transformation program, it doesn't allow for a flexible itinerary. That means it's only suitable for those women who are seeking more, want to grow and move, and are willing to get involved and face challenges. But I'll make sure we have time for fun, laughter, and relaxation along the way. This is a first-time trial run for this trip, so please forgive if there are any hiccups and pack a good sense of humor. If in the end, you feel you benefitted or if you have some value to add, I'd totally love your direct feedback and reviews. The trip price is calculated for 3 participants. The price reduces as the number of participants increases.
ABOUT ME I guess you could say I've done a lot of hiking and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it !!! It's such an exhilarating, healing, and transformative experience to walk long distances. So now I've combined my great love and extensive experience of hiking, with my passion and professional and personal experience in facilitating / coaching and personal and spiritual development, to help others realize their Greater Life. I really look forward to a transformational hiking journey with you and I'll do my best to help make it extraordinary and rewarding for you. Reach out if you're interested but perhaps a little intimidated or if you have any questions and want to know more. In case you love the idea of joining a transformational hike but you're wanting an alternative destination or challenge, I'm offering similar test run trips in other countries. Coming up in Join My Trip is the Sole Change hike in Slovenia.
ABOUT THE ACCOMMODATION The accommodation ranges from very comfortable to simplistic. It's also shared, either with members of the group or with other travelers. The sleeping arrangements can be side by side, in some cases, on a sofa or in individual beds. We'll play Lucky Dip to determine who sleeps where. Some of the lodgings have a pool, and many are self-catering for the option of group cooking. Keep me posted in the Q&A section if you would like to have a video call to share more details about the trip or if you have any questions about the trip or accommodation.
