REVIEWS FROM PREVIOUS EVOSSI EXPLORES GUESTS
"Could not recommend the Evossi Explores trips enough! I attended the Evossi Explores weekend in Dorset and loved it. I was nervous to go on my own but everyone was really friendly - the first evening welcome drinks was a great way to get to know everyone. The accommodation, food and organisation was spot on. Activity-wise there was something for everyone and we could do as much/little as suited.
There was a trail run and a coastal run, morning and afternoon yoga, kayaking and mountain biking, a meal out, films and some interesting talks. I also liked that the runs were flexible. Luckily for me there was shorter run option so the shorter distance runners could join the long runs part way on the long coastal run!" - Anna
"I recently attended the Evossi explores Dorset weekend with an open mind as I hadn't done anything like it before and I wasn't disappointed. The people were friendly, the vibe was chilled and the activities were expertly arranged.
I would recommended Evossi events to anyone and I'm thoroughly looking forward to Snowdonia." - Sam
"Wonderful weekend away with amazing people! First time on an EVOSSI retreat and it did not disappoint! Great weekend out of the city and into the countryside, exploring, eating, meeting people & yoga!" - Olivia
"Such a great weekend of adventure with EVOSSI. It's really an opporunity to get away from the city and daily stress. The weekend is great for getting out of your comfort zone & physically challenging, but there are a variety of activities for differing ability levels.
Overall the weekend is great for adventure, fitness, meeting new people and hearing some interesting experiences from guest speakers. I've recommended it to my friends and family." - Liam
