“Reviving the past”


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.


Torfhús Retreat fully supports sustainable practices. In Iceland, we are lucky to have a completely sustainable energy system, powered mostly by hydroelectric power and geothermal energy. We do our best to reduce our carbon footprint by minimizing plastic use as well as having fully electric service cars. In regards to food and beverages, we strive for a zero waste policy.


Over the span of three years, many involved and enthusiastic parties helped to create this exciting project. Beginning with creative ideas in the earliest stages of Torfhús Retreat, the venue first took shape on paper and was subsequently fully realized as a place you can experience in person.
