Summer in Iceland 2017
Journey North to the midnight sun …
July 4th-11th, 2017
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 prior to the Yoga Journey and book your stay for one night, July 3rd, in the capitol of Iceland for some Icelandic art and city life. On July 4th the retreat begins with yoga and several hours spent soaking and floating in the Blue Lagoon hot springs followed by dinner at the world renowned Lava restaurant. Next day, rejuvenated from two yoga practices and spa time, we journey onward to the Southern part of the island where we will be staying for 6 nights. Along the way we will stop to hike volcanic lava fields and visit waterfalls. When we arrive at our destination, unpack, settle in, then enjoy dinner, a soak in the warm geothermal springs, a steam or maybe a refreshing dip in the river that flow by our lodge.
From our guesthouse in Hveragerdi we explore the south of Iceland with expert guides who bring us along on a mix of hiking, biking and icelandic horseback riding excursions along the Golden Circle, glaciers, black sand beaches, fishing villages and national parks. (One can choose between a biking or horse back riding day). One of the days we’ll go on a super jeep tour over rivers and streams through Thorsmork Valley, hike the edge of a glacier and explore breathtakingly beautiful volcanic landscapes.We practice yoga once a day and strike poses i scenic landscapes too!
Mid retreat 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.
