Our unique yoga retreat in Iceland…it’s difficult to describe the overwhelming beauty of this incredible landscape that is this beautiful country. Each vista offers a new trick for the senses, a spark for the creative, and a thrill for the adventurer. We will explore this vibrant land as a moving retreat in order to see some of the incredible features of this unique country (and to spend less time tracking back and forth in the car!).
Our Yoga retreat in Iceland will take you to the famous Blue Lagoon for some pampering time in the waters, along the Golden Circle route with a foodies dream to sample local cuisine and what Icelandic Farm-to-table life is about. We will visit the famous Gullfoss waterfall and Geysir along the way.
We will have a free day to explore the adorable city of Reykjavik to check out how Icelanders live and express themselves, we’ll travel to the Black Beach, take a hike on the Vatnajökull Glacier to witness its beauty and learn of its power and we will of course keep our fingers crossed that the Icelandic Trolls and Elves help us to catch a glimpse of the elusive Northern Lights at least one night!
This yoga retreat is unique for us as we will be moving to explore deeper into the culture and the country and to allow us a more relaxed schedule and less car time backtracking around the island. For this we ask that you pack light and are up for a true adventure that only a special place like Iceland can provide. Check over our Travel Tips Guide for more on this form of travel.
Our trip to Iceland is quite extraordinary and we hope you’ll join us on the trip of a lifetime to this incredible land of Fire & Ice.

Our Iceland Yoga Retreat is traveling!
Our first 4 nights and final night in Iceland will be enjoyed at a lovely and unique hotel close to the airport, Reykjavik, and the Blue Lagoon. With two spaces for yoga, an incredible restaurant with views, and its own proper spa you will enjoy several nights relaxing as you settle in from travel.
Rooms can accommodate singles or shared doubles and triples in individual beds. We can pair you with roommates if you’re looking for a more affordable accommodation. We really won’t be inside our rooms very much!
Take your time to enjoy the spa services downstairs. Saunas, massages, and a tranquil room are all available for your enjoyment.
Our hotel’s restaurant is really a treat, from breakfast to dinner there are options for everyone. Icelandic fish and lamb are famous and try for yourself their famous desserts Skyr and here we have frozen Sangria as well!
Nights 5 & 6 we will hit the South Ring Road and travel towards the Vatnajökull glacier for our hiking excursion and glacier lagoon experience. The scenery along the way is spectacular with waterfalls, landscape changes, rainbows, and tons of animals along the open road. Truly a treat for the senses as we travel.
Not only does our stop-over offer convenience, this hotel is super stylish with amazing interiors and chic design. Happy hour is not to be missed with unique mixologists on the case and a sweet spot to wind down after a day on the ice!
Rooms for private or shared occupancy in sleek and stylish accommodations will be our home base for a few nights.
I’ve never had a bad meal in Iceland and we choose our hotels with food in mind. Dinners and breakfasts included on this stop will be plentiful and delicious. Most ingredients on the menu are grown and raised right on the island free-range and organic.
And for our second to last night on our way back to the first hotel and the airport we will stay in a very unique and special traditional turf guesthouse on an Icelandic horse farm just outside the town of Hella.
Our yoga practice will be in the stables and we will take an hour horseback ride by the river following class. No experience is necessary and there are tons of animals to love on at the farm if riding horses isn’t your thing! But these gorgeous, gentle creatures are well trained and relaxed for all types of riders.
We will finish the retreat back where we started near the airport for the closing circle and one last amazing meal together.
