Wim Hof method winter travel to Iceland

Brave the cold in rugged nature

The Wim Hof method all-inclusive winter travel

Taking an icebath is a fantastic experience, but if you really want to find out how the cold can help you, consider visiting the raw wilderness of Iceland.

Plunge into a freezing river, take a natural shower below one of the countless waterfalls, swim between the icebergs and warm up near one of the natural hot springs. That’s what you will experience on this trip. There is also a good chance (though not guaranteed) that we’ll be able to catch the Northern lights.

Our chef will prepare three meals a day with local produce and vegetarian options.

Programme Iceman winter travel to Iceland

A breathing session takes place each day before breakfast, in order to prepare the body for the cold exposure during the day. Next to basic breathing, we will also perform a few other breathing techniques. Each day you’ll face 1-2 cold challenges, depending on the group and the weather. You will hike in shorts; swim in rivers, streams and lakes; swim underwater (optional) and dive from cliffs (optional). We will gradually hike up the training difficulty over the course of the trip.
