“Untouched nature, clean air and water, and the unique culture of Iceland, provide the basis for our trips,” says Helga Hausner, a German who made Iceland her home 17 years ago.
Today, people often try to counter stress and dissatisfaction in life with things like spa treatments. However, studies have shown that in most cases the effect only lasts a short time.
By contrast, ISlandfrauen trips are conceived as an experience for body, mind and soul.
This holistic approach brings not only recreation, but also facilitates sustained positive changes in everyday life. The travel program includes walks, visits and get to know some of the locals, daily swimming and Qi Gong, accompanied by a tailored program on the specific tour theme. Shared laughter, encouragement and exchange with other women are keys to success.
The aim of the experiential program is to help women make their lives happier and more successful. “Our trips help to make our own everyday lives less stressful, to fulfil our desires to address long overdue things and simply to feel better. The rugged Icelandic countryside helps, because here the energy flows free and thoughts become clearer,” Helga says.
The tour themes on offer are: Power Refuelling, Time for You, Awakening Energies, Time Out in Iceland, and Wishes Come True. The trips are offered in German and English.
