Yoga and Wellness Center
The picturesque city of Akureyri is lovingly nicknamed the “Capital of North” is the second largest urban area in Iceland after Reykjavik. Built along the fjord (Eyjafjörður), Akureyri offers a mild climate and beautiful, picturesque landscape.
Across the fjord you will find a historic landmark marked by a large stone and anchor. Icelandic folklore suggests that this is where the Vikings originally landed in Iceland! On this beautiful property now lies Knarrarberg, a newly built wellness center and event hosting property designed specifically to welcome yoga, movement and other healing groups & retreats.
The center offers a large meeting space / yoga room fully equipped with yoga mats, blocks, straps and blankets. The room can be heated for heated practices. The center also has male / female showers & changing rooms, a relaxation room, dry sauna and outdoor geothermic jacuzzi. There are 3 massage rooms and various massage therapies available.
Participants of retreats stay in centrally located shared apartments or hotel rooms. The modern apartments are just a few blocks from the city center and are the nicest in Akureyri. Each apartment has 2 or 3 rooms, kitchen, living space and private or shared bath. Apartments also have access to backyard jacuzzis tapped from the volcanic geothermic waters below.
