Could anyone point me towards places in europe that offer 1-4 year reatreats in europe? Preferably within the Kagyu or Nyingma linage.

Lots of thanks, Alex :)

But of course, as should always be said in such cases: Talk to your teacher!

friend of mine is currently in his second 3 year retreat here. doesn't get more kagyu than samye ling :) . they locked down the men's retreat last october, so they're coming up on a year. i don't think they run them concurrently, either, so this might not be an option for another two years at least.

Thank you all very much for the information so far. If you got more, please keep them coming :)

I know about Samye Ling and it looks great. But at the moment I don't have the finance to support the fee.

You have to apply either to Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche personally or to Polish Lama Rinchen who will then talk to Rinpoche about it.
The next retreat starts in 2013. Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche and Kyabje Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche give all the Wangs and Lama Rinchen and Lama Mingyur Sönam are the Drubpöns of the retreat.
Its the leasr expensive 3 year retreat I know about in Europe.
