During your Southern Iceland retreat, you will visit two different parts of the country: Reykjavik and Laugarvatn. Reykjavik is the capital city of Iceland and one of the most popular destinations in the country. Laugarvatn is a southern Icelandic destination that embodies the beauty of Iceland’s countryside.
In Reykjavik, you will stay in a modern Icelandic hotel with chic, spacious group rooms. Spend your days in Reykjavik wandering the quaint European streets, touring museums that highlight Iceland’s incredible art scene and complicated history, and shopping for all your Icelandic souvenirs! In the evenings, see this beautiful city light up at night, have a drink in a local pub, or catch some live music and one or Reykjavik’s many popular music venues.
After two days of basking in this fascinating foreign city, you will be transported to a stunning home in Iceland that has been transformed into a traveler’s dream destination. Located in the heart of the Golden Circle, this retreat center gives you the opportunity to rest, restore, and experience the beautiful countryside that Iceland is famous for. Wake up to sunrise views over the lake, spend the afternoon indulging in a geothermal soak at the local hot springs, and enjoy delicious, hearty Icelandic meals (reindeer meatballs are available for the brave!)
