Arctic aurora and snowy adventures
Join Zephyr Wildman & Reclaim Yourself Retreats for a winter yoga retreat on Senja island in Norway. Located in the Arctic Circle this remote destination offers a deep experience in wild nature with its dramatic mountains, crystal clear waters and beautiful fjords. You’re invited to spend a magical long weekend practicing yoga, kayaking around the fjords and snow shoeing in the mountains. In the evenings, soak in the hot tub and enjoy your toasty apartment. The untouched wilderness and minimal light pollution here makes it the perfect place for star gazing and aurora viewing.
Our yoga retreat destination is the north west coast Senja island, an incredibly beautiful part of Norway where steep, majestic mountains dive straight into the sea and arctic beaches line a small archipelago of uninhabited islands. At this time of the year it will be mostly dark with some gentle light mid-morning and usually plenty of Northern Lights – maybe you’ll even see them while you’re having your breakfast!
You stay in stylish apartments set around the harbour of an old fishing village with uninterrupted views out to the surrounding islets and snowy mountains. Immerse yourself in a dynamic yoga practice with twice daily classes and enjoy delicious Norwegian meals.
Between classes relax in your cosy apartment and enjoy the views, book a hot tub spa experience or get active and explore the wild nature all around. Included in your yoga retreat is an aurora snow shoeing experience, where you’ll explore the mountains under the Northern Lights. You can also book a kayaking experience, explore by boat and, for those with experience, we can book ski touring.
