About Iceland


Iceland's spectacular natural beauty encompasses mighty ice caps, otherworldly beauty, simple nordic architecture and the world's biggest puffin colonies. There are soaring mountains, hidden valleys, dark canyons, pristine lakes, roaring waterfalls, twisting rivers. 

Swimming and Spas

Thanks to Iceland's abundance of geothermal heat, swimming is a national institution, and nearly every town has at least one sundlaug (heated swimming pool). The clean, chemical-free swimming pools and natural hot springs have a strict hygiene regimen, which involves a thorough shower without a swimsuit before swimming. 

During our retreat we will have the opportunity to bath at Fontana.
