Story by Run Wild Retreats + Wellness

Posted: April 20, 2022

Since 2015, Run Wild Retreats + Wellness, a boutique travel company specializing in trail running and wellness retreats for women, has taken groups to Iceland to experience this Arctic nation's incredible natural beauty, thrilling trails, soothing geothermal hot springs and incredible food.

As always, the Iceland Trail Running + Wellness Retreat's itinerary takes runners to iconic locations such as Reynisfjara black sand beach on Iceland's southern coast, two nights in the small seaside village of Vík í Mýrdal, and a visit to the 200-foot high Seljalandsfoss waterfall, it also includes some additions that are completely new this year. 

What's new for 2022:

✔️ You'll stay two nights at the luxurious Turfhus retreat, a collection of cozy, grass-roofed cabins featuring Viking-inspired décor, gourmet chef-prepared meals and black basalt-stone outdoor lined hot pools for private soaking at the end of each day's adventures.

✔️ Run a stunning trail alongside the thundering waters of Skogafoss, a massive waterfall that will awe us with its power and beauty. After the initial uphill climb, we'll run out-and-back along the plateau overlooking this geological marvel and out to the glacier-capped volcanoes of the Icelandic Highlands.

✔️ Enjoy runs that take you up close to a geyser that shoots water 40 meters into the air and through the mysterious Valley of Steam, where you feel as though you're running on another planet!

✔️ Have a rejuvenating wellness experience at the newly opened Sky Lagoon, where you can soak in naturally heated geothermal pools overlooking the Arctic Sea.
