Accommodation

For this retreat, you will be provided with seven nights accommodation. After arriving in Keflavik and visiting the Blue Lagoon, you will spend two nights at Icelandair Marina Hotel right by the port and easy access to the center of most things in Reykjavik. The rooms and hotel is quirky, fun, and very Icelandic.

Then you'll spend three nights at Ravenhill in small cottages at the end of a gorgeous valley. Here, you’ll eat in the communal house, play games in the lodge, and soak / sweat in the hot tub / sauna! It has a gorgeous yoga space.

Then you will journey to the magical Ion hotel for two nights where you’ll soak in their beautiful pool and surround ourselves in the quiet of the Icelandic nature.

Program

Daily yoga practice in the global heartland of geothermal energy, meditation, hot spring soaks, glacier hikes and northern lights serve as the backdrop for this inspiring journey of inner and outer exploration.

You will get a diverse overview of this magical land as you travel to three different amazing hotels in three different locations, starting in south to explore glaciers and waterfalls, then you will move to a beautiful hotel in the cultural center of Reykjavik and finish at a favorite destination and what many Icelander’s calls the most magical place in Iceland. There are plenty of free time and optional trips that will make this escape customizable to all levels and interests.

You will be outside as much as possible, hiking to hot springs, walking in mossy fields, following rivers to see where they take you, climbing glaciers, and other related activities. Nothing that you do is mandatory but everything that have planned is irresistible.

This is not a “luxury yoga retreat” by any means, that is not why you go to Iceland, but do not be surprised if you fall in love with all of the charming places where you will stay in or the healthy food that you work hard to find in a country known mostly for its fermented shark meat and puffins.

Each day in Iceland is different. You will mostly do yoga only once a day, but some days you will have the time to do two and if the weather is nice you will throw in something in nature.

After arriving in Keflavik, you will head straight to the Blue Lagoon, and then return to Reykjavik for two nights or days. There, you will soak in the magic of this unique city. You will practice yoga at the local studio, eat delicious food, take day trips and explore the music and nightlife 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.

From Reykjavik, you will take a short flight north on Air Iceland to get away from the crowds and find solitude in nature at Ravenhill Lodge. From Ravenhill, you will have access to the beautiful Myvatn Hot Springs and surrounding natural wonders.

You will also have a day where you can take local hikes, relax in the hot tub or sauna, or go to the Beer Spa, an actual beer spa attached to a local brewery where your skin will be glowing after soaking in young hops, beer, yeast, glacier water, seawater and not to worry, a beer tap right next to the tub for unlimited drinks while soaking.

Then you will journey to the magical Ion Hotel for two nights where you will soak in their beautiful pool and surround yourselves in the quiet of the Icelandic nature. Hike to hot springs, discover waterfalls, eat bread baked in the ground, and end your wonderful retreat at this breathtaking venue.

Backbone of this retreat

The mission of this retreat is to connect people to their deepest purpose/truths, well-being, and inspiration. We combine vibrant yoga and wellness teachers with incredible guides, local culture, nourishing food, inspiring adventure and a crew of fun-loving people from around the world. Along this journey, you will have a Yogascapes Guide supporting you every step of the way, from signing up to helping you on a glacier.

While every single retreat, unique based on the local culture, incredible teachers, the time of year and the environment, every experience is built on the following pillars.

Movement and meditation

Each retreat is filled with a mix of yoga, mantra, mudra, meditation, and more. To learn more about the specifics of this retreat, check out the schedule or you may contact Yogascapes.

Rest and rejuvenation

You will know that life is overwhelming at times and the nervous systems beg not only for the medicine of adventure but for deep rest and rejuvenation. A week of quiet nights and deep sleep, time for napping and giving yourself permission to do nothing at all.

Free time and options

%When you come on a Yogascapes retreat, nothing is mandatory and we build in plenty of time for you to be on your own, to rest more, to explore more, or to be open to whatever shows up.

Activating creativity and purpose

The mission is to connect people to their purpose by exposing them to practices, people and places that bring out their deepest truths and desires. Each one has the intention to bring you into a deeper connection with yourself and your true gifts.

Nourishment

Yogascapes love food. Delicious, healthy, beautiful, thoughtful food that nourishes the body and inspires the creative soul. Food is where you come together to replenish our bodies and where our community is built.

Community and sustainability

Come with no story to defend and no judgment to be had. Meet people who will change your life and or share in all the ups and downs. Connect with old friends and family in a new way, on a retreat, or when you go back home. Your own healing is the healing of the planet and so Yogascapes work with eco-lodges and companies that have similar ethos and missions.

Sensory exploration

Traveling is an adventure of the senses and you build each trip to open your senses up to the world and be open to the world through your senses.

Deep learning and integration

Yogascapes believe the experiences that last a lifetime are the ones in which you are learning and integrating what you learn into your life. The teachers and guides create unique opportunities for deepening and expansion of your practice.

Giving back

Two trees are planted every retreat sign up to help protect our planet and natural resources. At check out, we also offer you the opportunity to give to inspiring local and international projects.
