Journey North over summer solstice to the midnight sun …
June 18th-25th & three nights in Stockholm, Sweden June 25th-28th, 2015 (optional)
Travel the Icelandic landscape of FIRE and ICE over moss covered lava fields and rugged mountains, active volcanoes and rumbling glaciers, hot rivers, waterfalls, geysers and geothermal lagoons. With weather changing as drastically and dramatically as the scenery one may change from a parka and wool hat to shorts and bathing suit in one day.
Plan on arriving in Reykjavik one day early on June 17th to book your say at the must do Blue Lagoon and dinner at adjoining Lava restaurant. The next morning, well rested and fresh from the spa the Yoga Journey begins as we traverse the Southern part of the island to hike the Reykanes volcanic lava fields. Before dinner, arrive in time for a dip in the warm geothermal river that flows by our guesthouse.From our base in Hveragerdi we explore the south of Iceland with expert guides who bring us along on a mix of hiking, biking, sailing and icelandic horseback riding excursions along the Golden Circle, the South coast glacier, black sand beaches, fishing villages and national parks. (One can choose between a biking or horse back riding day) Yoga is practiced once or twice daily depending on itinerary.
Summer Solstice is celebrated with an evening hike and outdoor dinner in the Hengil volcanic area along with Nordic storytelling of elves and myths while bathing in natural hot springs lit by the midnight sun. Final day one can continue to explore more of Iceland or join me for three nights in Stockholm.
