We stay in a welcoming and family-friendly boutique hostel in a beautiful location with mountain views. Located within the famous Golden Circle sightseeing trail, our retreat place overlooks Lake Laugarvatn, Hekla Volcano and the Eyjafjallajökull Glacier. Set in a 1920s former school building, it offers private rooms, which feature bright décor, lake or mountain views and access to a shared kitchen and TV lounge.
It’s a great place to enjoy the Northern Lights, and you’ll also be close to many activities and natural gems in South Iceland. The land is magical in winter dress when the auroras dance along the inky-black sky.
This takes you around the Golden Circle to see three of Iceland’s highlights Gullfoss waterfall, Geysir geothermal area and Thingvellir National Park.
There will be two yoga practices each day, one in the morning or before dinner except on arrival and departure dates. Hatha yoga flow to wake us up in the morning and a gentle or yin yoga to nourish the body and mind in the late afternoon or early evening. Guided meditation and pranayama complement our practice. All levels and abilities are welcome. Limited number of yoga mats and props are available. Bring your own mat if possible. You also do not have to do any yoga.
