Summary

We’re heading North! Iceland is one of the planet’s true gems. With a total population of only 330,000, Iceland has struck a perfect balance between a warm, welcoming culture and the raw, untamed beauty of its vast mountainous landscapes. While most tourists groups and cruise lines visit the southern capital city Reykjavik, we’ll be heading to 66°North Iceland to the town of Akureyri–one of Iceland’s best kept secrets.

The cultural capital of Iceland, Akureyri has been voted the number one destination in all of Europe by Lonely Planet on more than one occasion. With a population of only 18,000, a mild climate on the longest fjord in the country, and close proximity to the Arctic Circle (meaning amazing Northern Lights!), Northern Iceland is truly THE place to visit.

Enjoy your daily yoga practice in a newly-built, one-of-a-kind studio with majestic views of the fjord and soaring mountains that will warm your body and soul.

This wellness centre is complete with massage rooms, dry sauna, Jacuzzi, showers, changing rooms, and all the amenities, and our friendly and knowledgeable guides live on-site, giving this space a personal touch. Guests of our retreats have a choice of staying in local private apartments complete with geothermal Jacuzzis or at a local hotel in the city centre. These comfortable and modern accommodations serve as a launching point for exploring some of the most powerful places in Iceland and diving into the island’s rich traditions.

You’ll have the opportunity to ride Icelandic horses, see the humpback whales that live in the fjord, visit a nearby island and hike its mountaintops, work with a team of champion Huskies, and possibly even experience the Aurora Borealis.

  • 7 nights accommodation in Akureyri
  • Transportation from airport, to classes and excursions
  • Daily yoga classes
  • Breakfasts, Lunches and 5 dinners in Akureyri
