Join me for an exclusive yoga expedition to Svalbard, a remote and mysterious archipelago located halfway between Norway and the North Pole. This is an extreme and truly spectacular place is made of dramatic glaciers, fjords, vast ice fields and icebergs.

With space for just 8 guests, this is an exclusive arctic explorer expedition. You will need to be fit and resilient to enjoy this Jivamukti yoga retreat. Our destination is Nordenskiöld, a remote and silent place 3 hours by boat from Longyearbyen. There is plenty of wildlife around the fjords at this time of year so we expect to see arctic birds, walruses, beluga whales and if we are lucky, the polar bear.

We will be staying in the northernmost commercial cabin in the world, located on the moraine shore of the Adolf fjord, at the edge of the magnificent Nordenskiöld glacier. Your retreat includes one yoga class each day along with a daily guided trip out to explore the incredible landscape all around us.

Kayaking is a very traditional way to explore the arctic shorelines so we will spend a day kayaking in pairs across the magnificent glacier front and icebergs. We hike on two days, exploring the beautiful arctic land, glacier moraines and reaching one of the close by mountain peaks. On our final day we will climb up the majestic glacier that lays just 300 meters away from the lodge. At the end of each day you can try a refreshing sea bath or simply relax and warm up in the sauna.
