a place to breathe


Tinhela610 is a wilderness lodge in the Trás-os-Montes region of Northern Portugal.  Perched in the middle of a nature reserve between trees, stones, moss, a natural spring source and the Tinhela river, we offer a complete respite from urban life.  There is no light, air or noise pollution. You will find a peaceful haven to recharge, relax and experience life in the slow-living lane. 


We hope you join us to live a unique, inquisitive retreat experience with nature, self and others. Surrounded by the mysteries of this enchanted land, featuring "Blue Zone" inspired local food, comfortable and luxurious bedding and linens,  a movement platform, hiking trails, a japanese/finnish inspired bathhouse, meditation alcoves, natural swimming holes in the river and more --Tinhela610 is just 125km from Porto International airport. 

Opening this summer 2023. Available for location for private groups of 14 as well as for our organized retreat experiences of 3 to 6 days with international teachers (such as yoga, juicing, survival skills, preventative health & wellbeing, meditation, chi-gong, tai-chi, HIIT, biking, hiking etc.). Our summer opening and offers will be announced in April 2023.  Feel free to send us an email with any questions or comments. 


After eight years in the making, we are proud of the resilience we found (after pandemics, war and a forest fire) to remain steadfast in our goal to open this unique lodge.
