Iceland Adventure

  • Google Calendar ICS

Join Maine Yoga Adventures on a magical adventure to an incredibly sought out locale - ICELAND. Adventurers will enjoy hot springs, hiking, yoga, horseback riding, glaciers, waterfalls, fjords, yummy vegan/vegetarian food, the northern lights and more...

The adventure begins with a divine dip at the Blue Lagoon, one of the 25 wonders of the world. This is as touristy as we'll get so we might as well get the fabulousness over with! It truly is a wonderous place...

Adventurers will relax away their flights and indulge in the silky white water packed with tremendous health benefits. The geothermal water has a unique combo of ingredients - silica, algae and minerals. Ahhh...

The adventure continues as we make our way past breathtakingly beautiful landscapes towards our next destination, Hellnar...

really, it gets more & more gorgeous!

Hellnar is an ancient fishing village beneath the Snaefellsjokull glacier, the king of Icelandic mountains, in the Snaefellsjokull National Park on the westernmost part of the Snaefellsnes peninsula. One of Iceland's most peculiar caves, Badstofa, is there, known for its special light exposure and colorful interior. And the seabirds, they are aplenty and such a delight to see and hear!

For our first two nights in Iceland, our accommodations are at two private houses settled in between the sea and the mountains. Adventurers will have both indoor and outdoor yoga practices, two breakfasts & two dinners, plenty of time to explore nature, and share laughter & stories with our community of adventurers. Machelle LaHaye will be assisting Holly in this adventure with both cooking & yoga - she's a certified yoga teacher and an amazing vegetarian/vegan cook. 

We'll enjoy terrific hikes and spectacular views as we explore the nature reserves and the stunning Snaefellsjokull National Park. And, hopefully in the evenings adventures will get sightings of those amazing Northern Lights!

We'll depart the Snaefellsnes peninsula and head towards Borgarnes, a picturesque town situated on a rocky peninsula. The views from this town and our b&b are outstanding! Mesmerizing! With two glaciers towering in the midst, Snaefellsjokull and Eiriksjokull, and the lovely sea right there at your fingertips. The sunsets are irresistible...

Adventurers will truly enjoy the two night stay at Borgarnes B&B with our hosts Bertha & Jay. Breakfasts and dinners will be covered for your stay. Every quaint room has a view of the gardens or of the sea or both. There's a huge window at the far end of the dining room that captures incredible bird life both in the yard and on the water. Binoculars are available for viewing close up and honestly, just take a couple steps outside and you're right in the mix!

We'll be sure to get in our yoga practices - outdoors if the weather is just right. Adventurers will also enjoy more hiking and sightseeing as we make our way to waterfalls and nature trails. 

We'll visit the community pool with toasty outdoor hot tubs that's just a short walk from the b&b. And, for the Iceland Adventure, we will not miss horseback riding on the infamous Icelandic horses! They are beautiful, well-cared for and ready to ride off into the sunset with us...

Eventually, we'll have to start back towards the airport on Friday. Adventurers can decide whether they need a little more contact with the Iceland wild lands or time to check out downtown Reykjavik or perhaps a bit of both...

There is a great cafe, Glo, in the city that is super tasty that we may want to take advantage of before our flights.

A stroll thru Reykjavik is pretty sweet with an abundance of artwork, eccentric museums, European architecture, and more...

The Iceland Adventure will be chock full of nature, yoga, yummy food and friendship. Excursions & entrance fees are covered. Flight is not included but most meals (the important ones!) are. WOW airlines has a direct flight from Boston which is the recommended 5 hr and 40 minute flight for adventurers. The cost is in the $450 range. Departure is at 7pm on Sunday, September 10th with a return flight at 3:30pm on Friday, September 15th.

Join Maine Yoga Adventures on a return adventure to gorgeous Nosara, Costa Rica! This special place will enchant your heart & soul. Surfing, yoga, nature in abundance, yummy food, good people, new friendships, and more await.

Nosara, is a small bumpy roaded village in the Nicoya Peninsula, on the northwest Pacific coast of Costa Rica. Its remoteness has long kept the crowds away, but surfers, yogis and adventurers know it’s special and have been making pilgrimages there for years.   

Enjoy a full week of adventuring at our private oasis Casa De Alces - luxurious, tropical, and inspiring. We'll have this spectacular space to ourselves to truly share an extraordinary experience together.

So many ways to relax with the open air rancho style property boasting several lounging areas, multiple fountains, lush landscaping, two strategically placed outdoor showers to rinse off in, and an amazing saltwater pool to slide into and soothe yourself from the sun & heat. An added design speciality to the pool is the convenient swim up tiki bar and I'm sure MYA will be happy to share some refreshments with you!  

Another appealing aspect of our casa is the second floor open space perfect for yoga sessions, ease of movement and bringing our community together. A lovely spot for gentle partner yoga! Past adventurers loved using balcony railings for stretching and we can certainly make that happen again...

second floor.jpg

Our cook will have two fully equipped custom kitchens with stainless steel appliances, one outdoors and one indoors to work her magic. Sophia Palange, professional cook, will whip up artful, tantalizing meals that maintain a local fresh sensibility full of flavor. She'll have a lot more space to create this time around!

IMG_2594.jpg

Adventurers will have full access to the kitchens as well. Mixing up smoothies is all part of the Nosara vibe! 

The casa has seven bedrooms consisting of three master suites (2 king, 1 queen - the suites are only open to two adventurers to share, not for single use), one double queen casita, single queen private casita, single queen bedroom and a queen bunkbed room are available for adventurers.

The beach, with a completely undeveloped and ecologically dense shoreline, is just a stroll away. Birding is incredible as well as sightings of howler monkeys, butterflies, dragonflies, iguanas, crabs, geckos, cool foxlike Costa Rican squirrels, etc. The buzzing of bees in the bright tropical flowers is heard alongside the sounds of the surf.

Adventurers will be moments away from one of the best surfing beaches in the world in Playa Guiones. We'll have our incredible surfing instructor, Scott Anchors, very generous and kind, assisting everyone in riding the waves with ease. Beginner surfers and more advanced surfers welcome!

The beach is a wonderful spot to gather and watch the infamous, jaw dropping Nosara sunset. Both locals and visitors treasure those brief moments with spectacular hues. 

Sunrise yoga practices are sweet on the beach. Cool and quiet with the soft and smooth sand underfoot. If you can rouse yourself early Nosara definitely rewards you with it's beauty.

Bike rentals are a great option to explore for not only around town but for nearby beaches as well. We’ll be arriving right around turtle nesting season and on the lookout for large shelled and slow but highly motivated ocean friends. The people you'll meet who live, work & play in Nosara are warm & welcoming and very willing to help you speak espanol!

Cost of the adventure includes vegetarian/vegan breakfasts & dinners, surfing lessons & surfboard, accommodations for seven nights, a gorgeous private casa w/ pool, two daily yoga practices, stunning wildlife sightings, good people full of positive energy...

  • $4,600/2 adventurers in King Suite

  • $4,500/2 adventurers in Queen Suite

  • $2,500/private queen casita (sold out)

  • $4,400/2 adventurers queen bedroom

  • $2,500/private queen bedroom

  • $2,400/per adventurer double queen casita

  • $2,300 bunk room

  • $1,000 deposit to hold space

Price does not include flight to & from Liberia or shuttle transportation to Nosara. Try to book early afternoon arrival and departure flights. Holly is more than happy to help you make arrangements. 

Side Trips to consider:

Monteverde is a town in mountainous northwestern Costa Rica. It’s renowned for its biodiverse cloud forests and for outdoor pursuits from hiking to zip-lining. The Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve shelters countless wildlife species, including jaguars, ocelots and the colorfully plumed quetzal. The reserve’s well-marked trails cut through ferns and orchids, and overhead, hanging bridges allow walks amid the forest canopy.  

Visit an incredible black sand beach, Ostional Wildlife Reserve, where Ridley Sea Turtles and their close relatives, Kemp's Sea Turtles, lay their eggs. Amazingly enough, Ostional is the only beach in the world where harvesting turtle eggs is legal. Scientists found that most of the eggs deposited in the first nights of a nesting period are destroyed by other turtles coming in later to dig their nests.

A private nature preserve about 4 miles from your room, Reserva Biologica Nosara, is 90 acres of beauty situated along the Nosara River. It is home to many species of plants, mangroves and wildlife.

Many different birds, such as seabirds, herons, waders, tukanes, motmots, manakins, etc. can be found in this area; altogether, more than 270 species. You may also catch a sighting of monkeys, coatis, raccoons, armadillos, snakes, anteaters, crabs, reptiles...

Other options that may entice you:

Bike rentals - week long rental 

Ziplining with Miss Sky Canopy Tour (we LOVED it!)

Nearby yoga studios - Blue Spirit, Bodhi Tree, etc.

Spa time

Paddleboarding/Kayaking

Horseback Riding

Coffee Plantation Tour and more...

And, adventurers will absolutely love the vegetarian evening meal provided by popular local caterer Markel's Bakehouse from Castine.

As an option outside of the 'official adventure', feel free to bring a canoe, kayak or paddleboard along with your pfd to play in the water. Sometimes it's nice to simply grab a chair, sit in the sun, breathe it in and relax...

Adventurers will then head back on the bus to Threshers Brewing Company in Searsmont.  

Threshers is one of Maine's newest breweries. Two former carpenters with a thirst for creativity and better beer, opened their location to give the locals a destination to slake their thirst in the quaint village. 

At this stop, adventurers will partake in some yummy vegetarian bbq from the food truck (the meats on you if thats what you crave). Next up is Marshall Wharf Brewing Co. in Belfast...

A perennial favorite right on the water, MW mixes traditional brews with an awesome dose of eclectic. David and the crew are always pushing the envelope with their brews. Maine Yoga Adventures can't wait to meet them!

Art & Happy Endings Adventure

Art & Happy Endings Adventure

Join Maine Yoga Adventures for an extraordinary immersion into the outdoors, meditation, art and fanciful refreshments!

The adventure will begin outdoors along the Kenduskeag Stream Trail, a beautiful riverside woodland trail in downtown Bangor; a true gem nestled into the city. We'll take a short stroll along the water's edge to get our bodies moving and our minds clear. 

Adventurers will then enter a room dimly lit and calming at the University of Maine Art Museum for guided meditation. Our gentle yoga practice will focus on pranayama (breathing techniques) and simple stretching to alleviate stress and promote health & wellbeing.

Adventurers will then give over to an art experience. Education Coordinator, Kat Johnson, will lead a tour through the galleries. Johnson has her MFA in Intermedia and has exhibited her own work nationally and throughout the state of Maine.   

Johnson will guide us through the artworks of Brenton Hamilton: 20 years, a Maine artist whose work focuses on historic photographic processes; Siobhan McBride: Four Hour Fortune Cookie, who works primarily in gouache on paper to render places and scenes imbued with memories and psychological tension; and, Jared Cowan: Life of David, Maine-based sculptor, video and installation artist, who explores the monumental events in the life of Emilio David Mazzeo. Adventurers will also explore the permanent collection which is always engaging and thought provoking.

From the art museum, we'll move onto Happy Endings Martini, Tapas & Dessert Bar. Happy Endings is a fresh and new establishment that brings a unique flavor to the downtown scene. Adventurers will partake in a one of a kind drink, perhaps a yogatini, and heavenly tasty tapas.

Then off to the Black Bear Brewery, locally known as the tap room, for beer along with healthy & yummy snacks lovingly provided by MYA...
