Yoga in an Artic Wilderness

10TH-17TH JULY 2019.


Stay in this beautiful 8 bedroomed stylish and unique lodge, right by the water’s edge.  Purpose built by the Fjord to blend into the natural environment of the Arctic Alps and give retreaters the opportunity to experience this remarkable region.   A wonderful place to escape to, relax and connect with nature on a daily basis.

There’s something just sublime about being above the Arctic circle, join Julee Yew-Crisjns on our mid-summer Yoga retreat in Northern Norway.  This stunning destination offers an amazing experience, amongst the remote location where you can enjoy the full magic of Norways landscape that it is know for.   Clear waters, expansive fjords, striking glaciers and dramatic waterfalls.  Enjoy the experience of 24 hours daylight in this serene lodge location  

Expect to flow, sweat and connect with uplifting tunes, pranayama and mindfulness sessions on the outdoor deck each morning and evening.  This boutique lodge has a sauna (of course) and an outdoor jacuzzi on the decking that overlooks the mountain views.  Local, seasonal meals include fish from the fresh water fjords, a large selection of vegetarian choices with some vegan options too.


You will stay in luxury lodge rooms some with uninterrupted views out to the surrounding islets and Fjord coastline. Immerse yourself in Julee’s Asana yoga practice twice daily and enjoy her workshops to help you progress your practice. 

Enjoy the choice of lots of excursions from a long list on this yoga retreat, special evenings like a Midnight sun (it never sets) hike with our guide walking through wild nature and lush vegetation, past a mountain lake where we pause for a Midnight Picnic supper before heading to the top of the mountain where you will find beautiful rugged cliffs and an amazing view over the fjord and the surrounding mountains..

Your yoga teachers

Your experienced and specialist Yoga instructor comes on this retreat to offer their expertise for Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced practitioners.  She will offer her specialist knowledge in each class, early morning sun-rise yoga and calming flowing sundowner practice.

Julees classes are playful, dynamic and flowing, sequenced to take you into a deep pose each time.  She has been on the mat for around 20 years, she often says “It sounds like a long time but everything still feels fresh every day”.   Julee has been led & mentored by some of the Yoga world’s greats.  She loves how her teacher friends are all enthusiastically sharing their knowledge, evolving & honing the practice as a whole and therefore she feels it’s not hers to keep but to share which is an honour & a privilege all together.


Is it for me?

The majority of people come on their own and make great friendships, the yoga instructors and their helpers are extremely welcoming, there is always the perfect balance of having people to talk to but having solo time too!

Beginners to Yoga are welcome, we have a specialist Beginners Instructor coming with us, we want to encourage all levels of students to share their experiences and learn from each other.  All equipment is provided – just bring yourself!

What if I’m Intermediate/advanced level?  We look at the level of student attending and then add a second instructor to suit.  When we talked to our Yoga members to find out what a good retreat looks like, they overwhelmingly said they preferred to have separate groups so that the beginners can have time to learn and develop at their pace and the intermediates/advanced Yogis can progress their practice. 

Your home for 8 days:

From it’s snow-capped peaks and fresh water fjords to its first-class Scandi style, this uber cool Lodge awaits you. Imagine a style influenced by the smooth lines and fine craftsmanship of yachting. The interior is bright and airy, with lightly coloured furniture and chairs covered in thick white cotton, offset by dark wood flooring. There is a feel of Scandi Artic of course but the fine views from the bedrooms and private dining areas are to die for…


All 8 bedrooms offer ensuite facilities, 4 rooms are double beds and 4 rooms are twins. So we have have divided the pricing into Double room for Single occupancy and Twin share (same sex).  First Come First Served.

Where is it?

The Lodge is located 350 kilometres North of the Arctic Circle, Northern Norway  and is set in the pure wilderness of Northern Norway.  The midnight sun makes it possible to do as the locals and participate in various activities around the clock.  In general, this area has a mild climate for such a northerly destination because of the warming effect of the Gulf stream. In July the average temperatures are 20 degrees. 


We love the fact its so far North.  Aszure blue waters are not to be underestimated, imagine kayaking your way through the stunning scenery and breathing the fresh mountain air.
