Discover your best holiday yet while exploring the beauty in Iceland!

The raw and fierce beauty of Iceland is awe inspiring. The volcanic power that continues to form this island is palatable in the hum of Reykjavik and in the echoes of ageless glaciers and exploding geysers. Hot water for your tea? Hot shower water in your room? Yup, all geo-thermally heated. Iceland, in all its seasons and facets, is an extraordinary yoga retreat backdrop. From our base in Reykjavik we’ll find the rhythm of the city with multiple escapes to unrivaled natural beauty.

Optional Excursions
​Between yoga, the full days of included excursions and chilling with new friends there is a ton to do on this amazing island. Plug the locals for fun excursions and check out below for additional awesome adventures. Please note that weather does play a part in some of the excursions so yogi flexibility (pun always intended) is always appreciated.

All but two dinners are included so that you can get out and enjoy Reykjavik’s culinary scene which ranges from the traditional to ‘new’ traditional to international and to raw. We highly recommend popping into Glo. These guys to raw, vegetarian, chicken and soup organic every day and pride themselves on sourcing locally. All locations are walkable from our home base and definitely worth the stroll.

The options are an additional cost but there is more than enough fun and quirky adventure to be had by strolling Reykjavik or hopping on a bike from the hotel. In particular, a trip to the top of the Hallgrímskirkja offers unbeatable views and can help you spot your next destination: Bæjarins Beztu Pylsur, also known as ‘the best hot dog in town’. Hot dogs are something of a national obsession, so if you’re willing, it’s definitely something to scratch off your ‘to do’ list…See all the choices here on Optional Exertions.

Our home base in Reykjavik at the Grand serves as our retreat-home as well as our practice space for four nights of our journey. A beautiful hardwood floored studio awaits morning and evening practice while their kitchen turns out delicious vegetarian and non-veggie meals to nourish and nosh on.

Our rooms at the base of Mount Hekla bring us closer to nature for two nights of our journey. They are smaller than the city hotel rooms but with unrivaled views. Gaze out onto the surrounding fields dotted with the property’s host of Icelandic horses or towards the museum building beautifully constructed, in part, with volcanic rock. Rooms have en suite bathrooms and will be configured with either two twin beds or one king based on your initial room request.
