We are delighted to partner with Time to Log Off to bring you a digital detox and yoga retreat in north Iceland. Our remote mountain location is the perfect place for replacing endless mindless scrolling with a mindful connection with nature and the great outdoors. With daily options to hike, ride and watch whales, the retreat also includes a day exploring the geothermal wilderness of Lake Mývatn, a sunset soak in hot pools and the magical Northern Lights.

Summary

Your Iceland retreat combines daily digital detox sessions with Time To Log Off founder and digital entrepreneur Tanya Goodin, Vinyasa flow yoga classes with Antonia Reed-Felstead and options to hike and ride Icelandic horses or watch whales in the majestic fjords. Some of our activities are included in your package and others are optional so that you can create your own schedule and take time to chill when you need to.

October is an ideal time to watch the Northern Lights and our secluded location with no light pollution means that if they happen, we’ll have a fantastic show! Our private farm includes luxury cabins that look out onto the mountains, a traditional farmhouse, yoga barn, bath house, sauna and outdoor hot tub.

A trip to this part of Iceland would not be complete without a day out at the world famous Lake Mývatn geothermal region, where all that makes Iceland so unique can be experienced within a few hours, from powerful waterfalls, volcanoes, geothermal activity and a sunset soak in a nature spa.

Digital Detoxing & Yoga

Our digital detox retreat offers a comprehensive and tailored programme to help you explore and manage your relationship with tech.

Before your retreat we will send you a short survey to find out what specific issues you’d like to focus on. At the beginning of the retreat we will have a ritual ‘handing-in’ of phones, tablets, laptops, kindles, game consoles and any digital device with a screen. We’ll keep all your gadgets safe for you until it’s time to leave.

Each day you will have a digital detox session with Tanya, where you will:

  • Learn about the nature of addictive technology and the negative impacts of screen overuse.
  • Clarify why you’re finding it difficult to change your own unwanted habits around tech.
  • Establish why you want to change your relationships with screens and how your quality of life will improve as a result.
  • Have a chance to reflect on how your habits have emerged unconsciously and decide what you want your relationship with tech to look like in the future.
  • Understand impulse control and urges to mindlessly scroll.
  • Come away with a bespoke plan of action designed to ensure lasting behavioural change and with balanced tech habits that leave you feeling healthier and happier.
  • Leave feeling motivated, inspired and empowered

Once you get home we will send you another short survey to check in on your plans.

Your retreat also includes 10 hours of yoga classes with Antonia in our beautiful yoga studio with mountain views. Morning classes will be 1.5 hours of invigorating vinyasa flow and evening sessions will be 75 minutes of slow flow and relaxation to help to reset after a busy out in the wilderness.

Accommodation

We have 8 beautiful, luxurious cabins located at the edge of our farm with mountain views. Peaceful and secluded, these cabins are very special – cosy and warm with big windows so you can feel really immersed in the wild nature all around you. Each cabin has an upper loft with a double bed and a lower floor with a queen bed, lounge area and bathroom.

We are also able to offer more budget accommodation options in our farmhouse where we have 2 twin rooms and 2 private rooms. Bathrooms are shared between 3 people. Our farmhouse is also where the kitchen is located so you’ll here some noise from there between 7.30am and 9.30pm. If you are seeking peace and solitude please choose a cabin.
