What you'll do

We meet in my studio in down town Reykjavik. There I will introduce myself and my work and get to know you. We drive for 10 minutes in my car, first to Sun Voyager, a viking monument, then to Perlan, which is a famous sightseeing spot close to our destination. After we go to the amazing Nauthólsvík, a man made beach only few minutes drive from Perlan. When we arrive I offer some beverages, local beer or hot tea and some Icelandic flat bread with smoked lamb. We can change to swimsuit in a dressing room and go into the warm hot tub that is placed on the beach. I there introduce my homemade coffee and sugar-masks with essential oils that are 100% organic and do magic to the skin. We soak in masks, and then dive into in the ice cold ocean. It is a wonderful feeling! After the sea we relax again in the hot water and steam bath to get our heat back. This is a local sport that more and more people are engaging in. It is recommended to go with an experienced person the first times. I drive you back to your next destination after the experience and this event will takes approximately 2-3 hours. I promise you an amazing and unusual experience you will never forget, with the locals.

Ýr

Hi, I am Ýr, a fashion and costumer designer that loves the nature. Three years ago I started swimming in the oean, which can be very cold here in Iceland, and I have never been healthier since I started that sport. I always go few times a week to regenerate my energy and I feel wonderful afterwards. That´s why I would like to invite visitors to join me for a wellness day in the heart of the city, where you can swim in the North Atlantic ocean, get a purifying natural skin treatment and enjoy a relaxed moment in a hot tub after.
