WHO IS THIS TRIP FOR?

Our Iceland Yoga Retreat 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?! This means we’ll be outside as much as possible, hiking to hot springs, walking in mossy fields, following rivers to see where they take us, climbing glaciers etc. Nothing we do is mandatory but everything we have planned is irresistible. This is not a “luxury yoga retreat” by any means, that’s not why we go to Iceland, but don’t be surprised if you fall in love with all of the charming places we stay, or the healthy food we work hard to find in a country known most for it’s fermented shark meat and puffins.

When booking flights be sure to arrive June 22nd between 6am-9am (or meet us at airport) and depart after 4pm on June 29th. Please email us with any flight questions!

 

“You must learn one thing:

the world was made to be free in.

Give up all the other worlds

except the one to which you belong.

Sometimes it takes darkness and the sweet

confinement of your aloneness

to learn anything or anyone

that does not bring you alive

is too small for you.”

David Whyte

venue

Background

After arriving in Keflavik we will journey to the magical Ion hotel for two nights where we’ll soak in their beautiful pool and surround ourselves in the quiet of the Icelandic nature. Hike to Hot Springs, discover waterfalls, eat bread baked in the ground, and launch our wonderful retreat at this breathtaking venue.

We’ll then spend 3 nights going deeper at  Glacier Lagoon Hotel. We’ll dive deep into the geothermal and glacier landscape that Iceland is so known for.

Finally we’ll spend 2 nights in Reykjavik in hand selected private apartments (that are nicer than most hotels)! Here we’ll soak in the magic of this unique city. We’ll practice yoga at the local studio, eat delicious food, take day trips and explore the music and night life that is so abundant in this fantastic city. This is your time to explore on your own and do any optional excursions of your liking.

Most of the food we’ll eat is organic and local. Delicious vegetarian options as well as fresh, local fish and meat for those that eat it will be available. Breakfasts are usually buffet style featuring cheeses, fruits, skyr(icelandic yogurt), cereals, juices and coffee/tea. We can accommodate most food requests as long as we know in advance!

In Reykjavik you’ll be going out for lunch and dinner. Because we will not always be eating together people expect to to pay for 2 meals a day while we are in Reykjavik. There are a few delicious vegetarian restaurants and one raw food restaurant near the studio. There are a lot of international options including a delicious Indian restaurant that we ate at last year.
