Thea’s Inn Presents:

A 7-Day, 6-Night
Retreat Vacation

September 2018

Prepare for the rustic retreat vacation of a lifetime this September as you explore Ikaria, Greece. Thea’s Inn, where Dan Buettner and his team of researchers stayed for the original explorations, is hosting a 7-day, 6-night retreat inspired by the Power 9®. Practice lifestyle habits and eat like a centenarian, all while taking in the breathtaking views of Nas, Ikaria.


Eat to 100

You’ll cook delicious, plant-slant Ikarian meals that you’ll be able to re-create at home.

Move Naturally

Hike, forage, and swim, or relax on the beach. The moderate temperature in September is perfect for swimming, the gardens are overflowing, and there are fewer tourists than the peak months.



Feel like you’re part of the community as you connect with fellow travelers and locals. If you are feeling burned out or disconnected, searching for something to improve your life physically, mentally, and emotionally, this adventure is for you.
