Retreats in Iceland

Tap into the power of cold, heat, and breath. It awakens our natural defenses, boosts metabolism, and restores the balance between body and mind. The cure for our modern lifestyle diseases is already here. It's called "lifestyle". Experience holistic health as nature intended it for optimal human potential. This retreat allows you to find this empowerment and balance in unique Icelandic nature, away from crowds, enabling you to disconnect from everything and tap into your innate abilities.

A note from Andri:

There are only 2 retreats this fall.

Join me on an epic, empowering, and life-changing adventure with a small group of only 12 people!


The retreats aim to show you the power you have to be ok no matter what. While having fun, going on adventures in pristine Icelandic nature, and connecting with a great group of people. Putting your physical and mental health as the top priority and ensuring you go back home with a whole new view of yourself and life.


There is no prior experience nor requirements (besides being over 18). The retreat will allow you to go in-depth and discover how incredible your mind and body can be when you tap into its full potential. Each person listens to their body, without forcing. This is not a space to be tough... everyone can do that. You come here to learn a deeper sense of empowerment, letting go of old tendencies that hold you back, a whole new sense of resiliency, staying calm amidst the stress, and understanding how to work with the power of your mind. Tools that you will take with you and use for life.


The small group setting allows me to really get to know you and have that quality time to personalize any teachings as needed. Be ready for full-day schedules with me, using each day to the fullest.


I look forward to sharing some amazing days filled with personal growth, adventures, and fun!

    Wim Hof Method Retreat

Andri was for me the perfect instructor. He has so much knowledge about breathing and being calm during an icebath. Andri is a very authentic person. I'm so thankful that he shared so many experiences with us. The landscape in iceland was amazing. I'm so thankful for all the experience I have made.


Such a fabulous experience, it surpassed all my expectations. Andri was an inspiration and for me the location was perfect , what better place than Iceland to be in the cold. I would highly recommend and I shall continue with cold therapy


Amazing. Inspiring. Mindblowing. Professional. Empowering. Relaxing.
I will continue practicing the Wim Hof method, knowing that it can help me in so many ways.
I am truly thankful for the opportunity to learn how to let go and change my life. Now it's on me to do it.
Thank you ❤


This was spectacular. Life changing! Surely recommend this to anyone and look forward to continue practicing and attend more workshops/retreats with Andri


Andri was just an incredibly calm and confidence-inducing instructor, who always motivated us and made us feel calm and in control throughout the toughest experiences.

I have recommended him and his retreats to my friends back home and hope we can corss paths again in the near future.


I can't fault the weekend in any way - Andri was inspirational and encouraging throughout. The teaching and guiding was clear and I feel I have lots of information to enable me to continue my journey at home.
The venue was perfect, cosy and compact, with lovely countryside all around. I'm totally buzzing about the whole experience!


My friend and I did a weekend with Andri and I won't reveal the details, as that is part of the deal, but it is not an exaggeration to say that we were given the experience of a life time and if you are in any doubt as to the benefits of cold water or breathing, sign up now and change your life!


Andri & his familly provided us all with an amazing experience in Iceland! Breathtaking locations, great food and rooms, and an overall unforgettable experience.
Andri is very knowledgeable, conveys calmness and serenity throughout the entire time, and you always feel comfortable to do all the activities with safety. Definitely recommend for an overwhelming experience in cold, cold iceland!


Andri is truly exceptional. Very engaging, excellently planned weekend, and his story is truly inspiring. I had an amazing time and am already looking forward to the next one. Thanks again.


Thank you for the most amazing and rewarding long weekend course. Andri and the team are absolutely fantastic and it provided the perfect balance of giving us regular challenges but also being hugely enjoyable. I learnt an enormous amount and left on a total high. 

Very grateful. 


The weekend provided a good range of activities that developed my knowledge and confidence in my own abilities. Andri adapted the programme to accomodate challenging weather. The small group afforded supportive and inclusive relationships to be formed. Thank you.


I got this trip to Iceland as a birthday present from my family. If I had remotely guessed the effect this course would have on my life, I would have done myself this favor much sooner.
Everything was just right here: the location, the people, the program, the atmosphere, the fantastic food from a wonderful chef and of course Andri himself. He is a good soul and lives the concept. His energy brings you to your own limits. This course should be mandatory for all people who want to make a better version of themselves. I will be back. Much love!

Dr. Firas
