Set in the heart of Iceland‘s magnificent Golden Circle, Torfhús Retreat is an inspiring blend of authentic Icelandic style and relaxed eco-luxury. Inspired by the architecture of the Icelandic Viking farm at nearby Stöng, the traditional torfhús residences and torfbaer suites are crafted from local stone, reclaimed wood and turf.
At Torfhús Retreat, rejuventing tranquillity, mesmerising scenery and innovative gastronomy come together in a place far away from everyday routine. Surronded by natural beauty and iconic sights, wilderness adventures and action packed activities are all within easy reach.
Living turf roofs, stone and reclaimed wooden walls, charming personal touches such as landscape photographs taken by the family and stylish lambskin rugs create a relaxing and homely atmosphere. In the balmy temperatures of summer or the crisp winter air, enjoy the luxury of a basalt stone hot pool to soak in waters heated by natural geothermal energy.
Arranged in a row of three suites, each individual 30 sqm Torfbær Suite offers one bedroom, a luxury bathroom, a comfortable living area and a geothermically heated basalt stone hot pool sunken into the ground and shared between the three suites.
Reclaimed oak, rustic painted walls and hand crafted furniture create a warm and cosy chalet-style interior. Staying in a historic hallmark Torfbær Suite is a unique experience, harking back a century yet overlaid with 21st century comforts.
Each 60 sqm Torfhús has two bedrooms and a luxurious bathroom. Reclaimed oak, rustic painted walls and hand crafted furniture create a warm and cosy chalet-style interior. Staying in a historic hallmark Torfhus is a unique experience, harking back a century yet overlaid with 21st century comforts.
Whether it is under the bright constellations, dancing Northern Lights or gently falling snow of winter or during the warm days and white nights of summer, your basalt stone hot pool is the ultimate spot for relaxation and rejuvenation.
Torfhús Retreat is totally committed to sustainable practices and is lucky enough to be powered by hydroelectric power and geothermal energy. The geothermal power source, less than 5km away, provides all of the heating for our houses and pools. So set the temperature to your liking (36-42 degrees), relax and retreat into authentic Icelandic nature regardless of the season or weather.
