Featuring an incredible new line up of internationally renowned speakers, practitioners and performers, including model Lily Cole and fourteen-time New York Times bestselling author, Dr Mark Hyman, mark your calendar for the return of Harvest Kaplankaya at Six Senses Kaplankaya, Turkey this May



If you’re passionate about all things wellness and the importance of human connection, head to the turquoise shores of Turkey this May for the four-day Harvest Kaplankaya festival. The holistic event is returning to Six Senses Kaplankaya, Turkey from 11th – 15th May 2022, featuring an incredible new line up of internationally renowned speakers, practitioners and performers.


Located on the picturesque shores of the Aegean, Harvest is a bi-annual meeting of ideas, discovery, music and connection. Attracting an international crowd of over 200 entrepreneurs, activists and explorers of the physical and spiritual worlds, the Harvest community aims to discuss and experiment with new ways of thinking and living in relation to oneself, one another and the planet.


Filled with fascinating talks, hands-on workshops, nourishing gastronomic experiences, moving performances and spirited music, this year’s festival aims to bring people together to rediscover human connection and wellbeing, contemplate important global issues and celebrate the power of human potential.

The line-up is set to include:

1 Dr. Mark Hyman 
Physician and leader in the field of Functional Medicine

A fourteen-time New York Times bestselling author, Dr Mark Hyman is sparking a health revolution with an emphasis on the power of real food.

2 Dr. Gabor Maté
Hungarian-Canadian physician, expert in human trauma

Awarded Canada’s highest civilian distinction for his ground-breaking work in medicine, Gabor is an award-winning author who’s known worldwide for his expertise on addiction, trauma and childhood development. 

3 Lily Cole
Model, actor, filmmaker and author

As a supermodel, Lily has some insider’s insight into the human system, which she channelled with the help of shamanic plant medicine into a book, called Who Cares Wins, chronicling a thousand ways in which we can halt the Sixth Mass Extinction. Alongside her modelling and writing, she is an ‘accidental entrepreneur’ and filmmaker.

4 Anita Frauwallner 
Multispecies probiotic expert and founder of Institut AllergoSan

Having founded the Institut AllergoSan, a leading global centre of excellence for microbiome research, Anita’s work helps millions with their gut health and her innovative approach to multispecies probiotics. 

5 Wade Davis
Anthropologist, writer, photographer and filmmaker 

A National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence, Wade’s work looks into how we can reconfigure our behavioural patterns and create real change in ourselves and the world, taking him from the Amazon, Tibet and Africa to Australia, Polynesia and the Arctic.

As well as the above guests, additional speakers and practitioners include Jamie Wheal, Indra Adan, Idriss Aberkane, Camilla Fayed, Lisa de Narvaez, Amber Joy and many more.

“Our last Harvest in October was a sell-out success, despite travel restrictions lifting only one week before the event,”  commented Maira Inae, CEO of Harvest. “What we saw last year, after a two-year period of little travel, was the refreshed desire of our guests to interact with our speakers and practitioners. This is what people valued, along with the content and nourishment of the location because it allows for greater sharing and learning, which is the main reason people come.

“With most airways open, and growing global demand for wellness experiences, this year we expect to see our guests, new and old, returning from around the world to dive into this incredible four-day experience.”

“At each Harvest event, we arrange private retreats with our speakers and practitioners for the Harvest community, taking place both before and after the main four days of content and both of this year’s retreats are already sold out,” adds Maira. “There’s a real focus for people to invest in their minds and bodies and there is no better place to do it than at Harvest Kaplankaya.”

Following May’s event, the sixth instalment of Harvest Kaplankaya is set to take place in October 2022.
