yoga retreat itinerary

yoga and meditation in the world heritage

 

Geirangerfjord is the world known jewel of the Norwegian fjords and for a good reason.

If you are able to find a retreat with the same level of spectacularity, we would like to know about it.

 

The fjord is in the UNESCO world heritage list for it’s very own reason. The breath taking landscape with snow-covered mountain tops, waterfalls pouring down thousands of litres minute by minute, old mountain farms located in places you never imagined possible.

 

In this world class surroundings you will be enjoying yoga and meditation in the nature of the world of wonders. Jump on board and let's explore the jewel in the crown together.

 

We have put an extra focus on places and experiences that are outside the normal daily life. The Geiranger experience will give you many new impressions and you will look at this

fjord kingdom from a complete new perspective.

 

We sail around the entire fjord with the sun and there is around 20 hrs of light

during the summer months in this area so bring your shades.

Every day there will be opportunities to be directly in nature even if you decide to stay on the boat.

The most important thing for us is to create a relaxed, calm environment to give the opportunity to disconnect from a stressful daily life and to experience a fulfilling different day to day which is relaxing and super fun at the same time.

Have any question or don't feel like reading?
