  • Inspiration Iceland, Knarrarberg, 601 Akureyri Iceland

Iceland Hiking and Yoga Retreat

The autumn excites all the senses: the colors of the plants, the clear air, and the sweetness of the ripe berries. The play of color shows the strong energy of nature before the winter silence begins. Slowly calmness is coming: the migratory birds and most of the tourists now leave Iceland. However, life here once again awakens to full power: the berries and mushrooms are ripe, the colors are shining, and horses and sheep are brought back from the mountains to the valleys in huge round-ups. A wonderful time to have an intensive insight to Iceland´s life.

Back in town, the pool is waiting that opens up fantastic views.

Tuesday

At lunch, the start of the journey to one of the most exciting areas of Iceland: Lake Mývatn. Here, experience the fantastic world within an active volcanic area with its hot springs, bubbling mud pools, and strong colors. The first stop is at Goðafoss, waterfall of the gods. Shortly after reaching Mývatn, explore the diverse landscapes on different short hikes: the pseudo craters of Skútustaðir, the mystical lava towers of Dimmuborgir, and the colorful world of active volcanism in the Krafla volcano, and on Námaskarð. The yoga session will be set on a charming lush peninsula at the lake. Afterwards, it is time to relax and enjoy the beautiful warm waters of the Natural Bath, the 'Blue Lagoon' of the North. Dinner will take place in a cafe at the lake with products directly from the farm. Even at this time of the year, you can be lucky to experience the Northern Lights.

Wednesday

A drive far into the world of mountains until reaching the old farm Skeið shortly before the end of the valley. This time of year the valley is mostly wrapped in the splendor of autumn colors. Surrounded by the mountains, a yoga session will be done to feel the calmness of this remote area. Then a walk through the idyllic valley up to a small mountain lake. Either you use the time to rest here, or participate in another yoga session. Back in Skeið, hostess Myriam awaits ready for a cozy dinner with wonderful Icelandic lamb or vegetarian.
