Hestaland Yoga Retreat

May 21st – May 27th 2023 (still have availability)

Iceland is the ideal location for yogis, horse friends, adventurers, and nature lovers who desire an authentic experience in a magnificent and magical country.

The Hestaland Yoga Retreat is the perfect place for anyone who wants to connect with nature, horses, like-minded people, and last but not least, themselves. We are focused on relaxation and slowing down the pace.

Far enough but not too far away from the capital and hectic golden circle, we will welcome you to our cozy countryside guesthouse on our farm. We are located in West Iceland and surrounded by beautiful mountains, lava, water, and of course, horses!

At Hestaland we firmly believe that animals can teach us various skills, and we would like to share those with all who decide to join us for this week. With horses you can’t rush things. You need to be calm, patient, and understanding, and you need to be able to read them to find success.

We believe that yoga and horseback riding are the perfect match, as they complement each other so wonderfully. We will not only work on our core strength and learn new ways to control our bodies, but we will also work on our minds. We will learn to focus and stay calm, and we will remember what it feels like to be present in the moment.

Escape your daily routine and the stress that comes with it, and find yourself in the middle of Icelandic nature.
