Torfhus Retreat

'Authentic Icelandic style'

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.

In Our Opinion

'An incredible location for observing the Northern Lights due to its isolated location and zero light pollution. Enjoy stargazing on a cold winter night from the warmth of your own heated basalt stone pool.'
