Bike, Hike, or Trike? (Plus Wine!)

E-bikes ensure a leisurely ride with Sonoma Adventures. Revel in the valley’s beauty, pedaling the quiet countryside with wine tasting stops curated by your guide.

And don’t forget how much fun it can be having a third wheel along for the ride! Check out PushPak Motor’s Trike and Hike Sonoma Tour. It combines three of life’s best things: wine, cheese, and hiking.

Mindful Moments

How about some poolside flow yoga followed by bubbles and a farm-to-table brunch? (We thought so!). Flatbed Farms Spring Yoga and Brunch knows how to enhance the mind-body connection—and nourish your spirit, too.

Stretch your mind and body at Songbird Parlour in the quiet hamlet of Glen Ellen. Their Mighty Sage Yoga combines traditional poses with an emphasis on breath work to relax, slow down, and find balance. (They also offer Full Moon and Candlelight Restorative Yoga.)

Find your Zen on a mountaintop. Sonoma Mountain Zen Center helps you learn to just sit, literally. Even better, this sitting happens at the top of Sonoma Mountain, surrounded by redwoods, ancient oaks, and the ethereal Valley of the Moon.

Just want a warm bath brought to you by the bounties of nature? Set your sights on the thermal baths at Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn. Then soak yourself in the warmth of the waters here and savor the moment: These are among the last remaining thermal waters in the Valley since the 1906 earthquake.
