Yoga, Northern Lights, Hot Springs, Glaciers, Icelanders will tell you that winter is the most breathtaking time to visit their awe-inspiring country. The beauty of Iceland is not only found in it’s raw otherworldly nature, but in the unique and creative culture that bleeds out of Reykjavik. – We will spend three nights in Reykjavik, starting at the Blue Lagoon, exploring the city and adventuring to the south for waterfalls and a glacier hike. Then we’ll head north to our favorite place to chase the northern lights and explore one of Iceland most remote areas!
The 2017, 2018 & 2019 retreats sold out with a big waiting list, so don’t wait! If you’re looking to go to Iceland a different time of year, please visit our other Iceland Retreats.

Our Iceland Yoga Retreat in February is designed for people with all levels of yoga and adventure experience. Men, women, couples, best friends, old friends and soon to be new friends. Our goal is to connect as deeply as possible to nature and to the cultural core of this beautiful place. I mean how often do you get to go to Iceland with a group of people that are passionate about such similar things?!
There’s no where else in the world where the culture and the people are such clear reflections of the magnificent nature that surrounds them. As Iceland embraces you it teaches that we are not just trying to be one with nature, but that we are nature itself. The beauty of a yoga retreat is the attention given this concept of embodying our own nature and there’s no better teacher than the young but wise, Iceland.
On this journey we’ll pulse between diving deeply into the most magnificent and powerful parts of Iceland and the most magnificent and powerful parts of the human experience. We’ll start by exploring Reykjavik, and journey south, then head north into the enchanting winter wonderland with the ultimate goal of seeing the Northern Lights and joining together as a small supportive community coming from around the world. While our heads will be tilted up to the magic of the sky our bodies will begin to ground in the earth with wonderful yoga classes. We’ll take it a step further and sink into the healing and unique waters of the hot springs and awe inspiring glaciers.

Welcome to Iceland! You’ll be flying into Keflavik Airport which is about 45 minutes south of Reykjavik. Most flights arrive in the morning and so we will begin our journey with you then. Don’t worry, everyone will have pretty much taken the same overnight flight and need a day to catch up on sleep!
We will be taking a domestic flight on the 12th up north, and returning on the 15th with plenty of time to catch the evening flight from Keflavik. We do suggest staying an extra night if you would rather take one of the morning flights depending on your destination.
There will be a shuttle departing Keflavik Airport around 7 am on the 9th and we will determine exact departure as the trip gets closer and we get everyone’s travel info. Our bus will also be providing transportation back to Keflavik Airport on February 15th and we require that you book flights after 4pm on the 15th so we can bring everyone together.

Group Arrival Time on February 9th – before 7am preferably, but if you have to arrive after you’ll simply need to have your own transfer or miss the Blue Lagoon and meet in Reykjavik.
