15 Sep Our incredible digital detox retreat in Iceland will recharge your life!
After a couple of years of digital detox retreat hiatus, we can now announce that we are launching a brand new digital detox retreat in Iceland in 2020! We are thrilled to be able to bring you to this incredible location surrounded by the fjords, in a remote and peaceful wilderness, experiencing all of the natural beauty that Iceland has to offer. You will have five full days of digital detox and the opportunity to examine and adjust your tech habits.
The programme that we have designed for you combines all of the things we love the most: digital detox, yoga and plenty of connection with nature. This is so that you can discover all that Iceland has to offer, whilst reevaluating your tech habits throughout your much-needed break. Not all of the activities are included as standard which allows you the opportunity to create a bespoke package focused on your specific needs, and allows you to tailor your trip to be as active or restorative as you would like. This individual approach covers the whole of the retreat including the option for you to choose between two styles of accommodation.
We will be staying on a private and secluded farm with gorgeous mountain views all around us as. The farm not only comprises the accommodation for our stay but also features a traditional farmhouse, bathhouse, sauna, outdoor hot tub, and yoga barn for our classes. The majority of us will be staying in 8 cabins located on the edge of the farm. These place us right in the valley and with their large windows allow us to reconnect with the natural world anew. Each of the cabins is very luxurious and equipped with a double bed on an upper floor as well as a lounge area, queen bed, and bathroom. If you’d like more budget accommodation, there is also the option to stay in the farmhouse itself which contains 2 private single rooms and 2 twin rooms. If you choose to stay in the farmhouse then bathrooms will be shared between three people and you may experience some noise between 7:30 am and 9:30 pm as this is where the kitchen is based and our meals are prepared. If you want to prioritise alone time and a lack of disruption, we recommend choosing a cabin.
We have chosen a particularly good time to see the Northern Lights as they are at their most visible in October. In our rural location with no light pollution nearby, if we do see them they will be very visible! This picture was taken from the cabins we will be staying in, only last year.
A retreat in this part of Iceland really isn’t complete without a day out at the world-famous Lake Mývatn geothermal region. All that makes Iceland such a sought-after retreat destination can be experienced within a few hours from our base, from waterfalls, volcanoes, and geothermal activity to a natural spa. In keeping with the customisable nature of the retreat, you will be able to visit the geothermal region and also add options to hike or ride Icelandic horses in the mountains around the farm, or enjoy epic vistas while whale watching on the fjord.
A typical day will include two yoga classes, a session dedicated to digital detox itself and at least one optional activity such as whale watching. This means that our days will be busy but, as they start at 7 with early-morning tea, there is ample time to think and simply relax in this stunning natural environment.
We cannot wait for you to join us on this incredible adventure as we journey into the epic landscapes of Iceland and truly reconnect with ourselves by taking a break from our phones and the digital world. A digital detox retreat can truly change your life, as those who have joined us on retreats before can confirm – don’t miss this amazing opportunity to experience it for yourself!
