  • An all-women mindfulness retreat with natural hot pools, yoga sessions, and Nordic cuisine in Iceland. Sounds good? Sign up. This 6-day retreat is more than just a trip—it’s a supportive environment where you can connect, share experiences, and build lasting friendships with like-minded women. There will be invigorating hikes, snorkeling between tectonic plates, marveling at the iconic Gullfoss… But there will also be re-energizing yoga sessions, visits to unique restaurants and greenhouses, and unwinding in natural hot pools. Join a truly unique wellness retreat in the Icelandic Highlands and leave with experiences you’ll remember for life and newly forged friendships.

    • After arriving in Reykjavik, we’ll meet up and get to know the city’s rich history by going on a guided walking tour. We’ll set the tone for the days ahead, fostering the sense of camaraderie among your fellow Viking women. Let’s get to our comfy hotel and settle in.

      The Reykjavik waterfront.
    • The first stop of our Day 2 is the thundering Gullfoss, Iceland’s most iconic waterfall, and then Geysir, a geothermal area in southwestern Iceland famous for its hot springs and geysers. Following an inspiring hike, we will go on a journey through the authentic Nordic cuisine. There will be an easy optional afternoon hike on a marked route.

      Meals: Breakfast, Nordic cuisine journey

    • Let’s embrace the rugged beauty of the Highlands with a challenging hike, allowing the wilderness to serve as both backdrop and inspiration. Realign your mind and body through an invigorating yoga session amidst the sheer vastness of the Highlands. Today we will take on a challenging 12-km hike (7-5 miles) with an altitude increase of about 400 m (1,300 ft). The hike will take around 5-6 hours with resting and photo stops on the way.

      Meals: Breakfast

    • Next stop is the Friðheimar greenhouse—we will learn how they use geothermal heating to grow vegetables, pick fresh tomatoes from above your table, and have a delicious lunch. We will then embark on a unique snorkeling adventure between tectonic plates. It’s a surreal experience reminding us of nature’s unparalleled power. Let’s retreat to our hotel, followed by an evening of shared experiences over dinner.

      Meals: Breakfast and dinner

      Snorkeling in Silfra between tectonic plates
    • Kick off the day with another captivating hike before treating yourself to a gentle yoga stretch! After that, we can relax in natural hot pools, nurturing a sense of unity with the surroundings.

    • On this Iceland wellness retreat, you can expect daily hikes or yoga sessions. Some hikes will be easy (soft, packed dirt and pebble paths), while other areas will be challenging, including steep ascents and descents on trails that can become muddy when wet. For this reason, hiking shoes are mandatory (waterproof hiking boots are strongly recommended), as is a lightweight backpack that can carry at least 1 L of water, snacks and a lightweight, breathable jacket.

    • This is a list of things we recommend you carry in your daypack (around a 25-40L bag):

        • A warm hat, sunhat and gloves
        • Waterproof jacket and waterproof pants
        • Sunglasses
        • Water bottle or water bladder
        • Sunscreen and SPF lip balm
        • Extra fleece sweater or down jacket
        • Hand sanitizer
        • Hiking poles — optional
        • Camera — optional

      This is what your luggage should contain:

        • Travel pillow — optional
        • Underwear and socks
        • Extra clothes for the trail
        • Extra clothes for the huts
        • Medicine
        • Hygiene and beauty products
        • Towel
        • Headlamp or a flashlight
        • Powerbank to charge your devices
        • Earplugs and a sleeping mask
        • Cash or a debit/credit card

      What to wear on the trail:

        • Good hiking boots that are waterproof
        • Hiking pants or leggings
        • Thermal top or lightweight T-shirt
        • Hiking socks
        • Mid layer
        • A buff — optional
        • Gaiters

      Your main luggage will be transported by transport vehicle. Everything needed for the day’s trek must be in your daypack. You are allowed to take one piece of luggage on the tour.

      For your own well-being and safety, we strongly suggest following the advice of this equipment list. This includes having good quality rain gear, tops, and bottoms. Cotton clothing is not appropriate for any strenuous outdoor activity – nor are jeans and cotton t-shirts. Modern outdoor clothing is far more comfortable and will greatly improve your experience.

    • Group sizes and prices:

        • For this Icelandic wellness retreat, the maximum group size is set at 16 participants.
        • It takes a minimum of 6 people for these tours to run.
        • Single supplement is available at an additional cost and may be added to your booking upon checkout.

      Iceland wellness retreats can be arranged for larger groups. Contact us to make arrangements.

      Min. age requirements:

        • If you are older than 18, you’re good to go.
    • To get to Reykjavik, the starting point of this tour, most people fly into Keflavik International Airport (KEF). From there, you have a 45-minute drive to Reykjavik by bus or a cab. Buses leave the airport every hour, 24/7, so you don’t have to worry about getting delayed.

      You’ll meet your guide and your group on Day 1 of the tour! It’s recommended that you either pick an early-morning flight so you get to seize the day or spend the night in Reykjavik a night prior to your adventure.

    • We highly recommend that you cover all your bases with both emergency medical and travel insurance. With medical insurance, if you have an accident or medical emergency on or off the mountain, you’ll avoid paying out of pocket for costly expenses. This covers everything from hospital treatments to emergency air transportation and more.

      Travel insurance covers canceled flights, natural disasters and other scenarios that may interrupt your travel plans.

      We also expect you to respect local regulations and take measures to protect yourselves, your guides, and the communities you’re traveling to. If you need assistance selecting the right insurance for your group, let us know and we will be happy to help!

    • Iceland, the “Land of Fire and Ice”, has forever lived with volcanic activity. Minor and major eruptions have occurred every few years since the island was formed. Some of Iceland’s appeal, aside from sheer natural beauty, surely stems from this very fact.

      However, every new eruption, such as the recent Reykjanes Peninsula fissure, will make some travelers, tourists, and adventurers uneasy, especially given the fact that sensationalist media is not immune to misinformation and speculation.

      Since we work with a number of expert local guides in Iceland, we thought we’d share their input and fill you in on what’s actually going on.

      First of all, air traffic has not been affected. Flights to and from Keflavík International Airport and Reykjavík Domestic Airport are operating as they always do.

      Second, the effects of volcanic activity have been localized, with some roads closed, and all services in Iceland are operating as usual. Reykjavik, the capital, is around 40 km (25 miles) away from the volcanic fissure, and life there is as normal as ever.

      And third, trips offered by 57hours are taking place much further away, and are thereby even less likely to be affected by the volcanic activity, being perfectly safe for adventurers. Naturally, the authorities (and guides) are monitoring the situation and doing everything possible to keep both local residents and visitors safe and well informed.

      In case you have any additional questions or dilemmas, feel free to get in touch with either your guide or 57hours. For more information, please visit:
