"Fantastic Retreat! "
This was a great retreat, you can tell there was a lot of thought put into the structure and layout of the program and that they have taken previous feedback and made changes to provide an even better experience. Andreas and Ulrika were very welcoming with great energy; such fantastic hosts. The yoga was accessible to all levels and the yoga center was beautiful. I loved doing yoga in nature, on top a mountain, in a valley, on a black sand beach. The places we visited were beautiful and I thought the hikes were well selected for a group of varied experience levels. The selected restaurants were delicious and unique locations that I wouldn't have stumbled upon myself. I loved going in the fall but would love to go back in the winter and go dog sledding and have a better chance of seeing the northern lights. I definitely recommend this retreat!

"Unreal week of amazing scenery and delicious food!"
Andreas was an amazing tour guide. He is extremely knowledgeable and very informative. The excursions were unreal! Amazing spots to hike and explore. I felt like we went to places that I would not have found if I was just venturing out on my own. This was also true about the delicious meals. It was a truly special experience that really explored all of Akureyri and the surrounding area. This was my fourth visit to Iceland and I would highly recommend this trip!

"DO YOURSELF A PRESENT AND GO THERE! "
Everything! Ulrica and Andreas are wonderful hosts, yoga teacher and guide and this was the perfect combination to unwind, have time for myself, do yoga and get to know this beautiful country! Really: you will visit, see and hear things tourist don’t get to! I’d go back a thousand times!
Thank you for this amazing experience! Love, Melissa (Michelle ;) )

Review of Inspiration Iceland
Reviewed 3 weeks ago
This retreat by far exceeded my expectations. Andreas, Ulrika and their team had so much energy and enthusiasm in introducing us and welcoming us to Iceland! The yoga classes were varied and I enjoyed the morning routine which set us up for the day. The options for daily excursions and activities including husky dog sledding, spa days, exploring and hiking the local sites and the food were all wonderful! We had a great group and I was very sad to leave...but this trip has definitely made me want to come back to Iceland very soon! Thank you for an amazing week:)

"Un séjour inoubliable!"
Mon séjour en Islande s'est avéré magique.
L'accueil d'Andreas et Ulrica était sensible, ouvert et extrêmement généreux.
Nous étions un tout petit groupe s'étant soudé très rapidement.
Les installations étaient irréprochables, la qualité des tours guidés en nature fantastiques.
Spirituel, magique et inoubliable!
