“To retreat” means withdrawing to a quiet or secluded place away from everyday routine. A place that is sheltered and private. This is what Torfhús Retreat offers you. The architectural style of the Retreat is inspired by an Icelandic Viking farm at Stöng. All buildings are of the classic Icelandic torfhouse style, made of stones, turf and wood.
Inside the turf houses you find all the luxury comforts that you expect and deserve, offering you everything you need to unwind. Each Torfhús is fully equipped for self-catering if you so wish. The houses are well equipped with many facilities to make your stay comfortable. A unique feature of Torfhús is your basalt stone hot pool which is sure to make your stay truly unforgettable.
BASALT STONE HOT POOL
Iceland has a rich tradition of bathing in geothermal pools, powered by sustainable energy. The basalt stone hot pools are Torfhús Retreat´s attempt to bring this rejuvenating tradition of bathing to our guests.
The cuisine at Torfhús Retreat is largely inspired by Icelandic traditions and local ingredients.
We are fortunate to be located in an area of ample geothermal heat, and therefore have numerous greenhouse farms to source our vegetables and seasonal produce from. We strive to use local Icelandic ingredients whenever available. All meals at Torfhús Retreat are served in the Viking Langhús.
There are numerous day trips to take from the Torfhús Retreat, ranging from venturing into the highlands to glacier climbing, helicopter sightseeing, multiple waterfalls and countless other excursions. We would love to assist you in selecting the right adventure that suits your mood and to handle all the necessary arrangements.
The beginning of this unique project started with two families, one from Liechtenstein and the other from Iceland. They first got acquainted through their mutual interest in breeding Icelandic horses, Icelandic landscape and culture in general. The idea of Torfhús Retreat was to create an extraordinary hospitality environment for guests from all over the world to enjoy the Icelandic countryside at its best.
