Adventure Yoga Holiday Iceland – The Land of Fire and Ice

NEW for 2020! An exciting and mind blowing yoga holiday in north Iceland. A destination on everyone's bucket list!

13th - 18th June 2020

Iceland is a destination everyone wants to go to at least once in their lifetime, so we have decided to create our very own adventure yoga holiday in Iceland and we would love you to join us.  Begin your yoga adventure by taking an internal flight to Akuyeri which is north west Iceland where you will stay for 6 days. Away from the main tourist centre around Reykjavik and with it’s mild climate, situated on the longest fjord in the country and it’s close proximity to the Arctic Circle, makes Akuyeri a must see destination. Akuyeri is known as one of Iceland’s best kept secrets.

We have created a jam packed schedule for you to see as much of this stunning landscape as possible on your stay, and then relax with two yoga classes a day to revive and revitalise.  Visit majestic landscapes, take a ferry to an energetic island, ride Icelandic horses or watch whales, visit famous waterfalls, take secret hikes off the beaten path, explore volcanic craters and geothermic natural baths. All of this is a part of this exhilarating yoga holiday in awe-inspiring Iceland. And guess what? All the above is included in the price!

Our Yoga Teachers

Over the 13 years that AY has been organising our bespoke retreats, we have always made sure that we work with exceptional yoga teachers who are dedicated to their practice and live and breathe yoga, so you can feel safe in the knowledge that you will be inspired, relaxed and tensions dissolved by the end of your retreat with us.

About the yoga

The yoga takes place in a beautiful yoga studio with a wellness centre attached so you can enjoy massage, saunas and steam rooms. It is a very short drive away and yoga starts at 9 am. You will have time to have a small snack before yoga. On a few of the mornings, you will also enjoy a silent walk to the morning yoga in stunning landscape.

The yoga in the morning will be a reviving practice to warm and wake the body and mind. Evening yoga will be a more restorative practice in a relaxing environment of the yoga shala. The yoga classes are 1.5 hrs each.

There are 4-morning yoga classes and 2 evening yoga classes. It is a jam-packed itinerary so this is as much as we could squeeze in!

Beautiful Iceland

Iceland is most widely known for its glaciers, volcanoes, hot springs and dramatic volcanic landscape. It is the most sparsely populated country in Europe with only 360,000 inhabitants. It is the land of light and darkness with the famous aurora in winter and the midnight sun in summer with 24 hours of sunlight.

We love the idea of a yoga holiday in Iceland because it is the second-best environmentally friendly country in the world after Finland. Even though they are very free with their heating (as it is considered their luxury item as it is so cold and dark a lot of the time) they get their heat source from the 800 hot springs throughout this volcanic island.

 

Iceland is an expensive destination to go to, but with its uniqueness to any other country on the planet and with it being on everyone’s bucket list to visit at least once (maybe twice, summer for midnight sun and winter for the aurora), it is something that you have to just accept and go with it as a once in a lifetime experience.

On our adventure in Iceland, you are staying away from the touristy south of the island and will be experiencing the raw nature in the northeast. We highly recommend staying in Reykjavik the night before the retreat so the journey can be part of the adventure.
