Inspired by an Icelandic Viking farm at Stöng, Torfhús Retreat represents the classic Icelandic torfhouse style, made of stones, turf and wood. A 'retreat' is the mot juste. Sequestered in the heart of Iceland's magnificent Golden Circle, Torfhús Retreat is a rugged, yet comfortable blend of Icelandic style and relaxed eco-luxury.
Arranged in a row of three suites, each Torfbær Suite offers a luxury bedroom, bathroom and comfortable living area. Reclaimed oak, rustic painted walls and hand-crafted furniture create a warm and cosy chalet-style interior. There’s even a geothermically heated basalt stone hot pool sunken into the ground, shared between the three suites, to truly warm the heart and bring back the traditional rejuvenating tradition.
Staying in such a historic hallmark as a Torfbær Suite is a unique experience, immersing yourself in history overlaid with all the modern comforts you could need. The retreat houses a snug restaurant where you can order a hearty soup of the day or tuck in to a typical Icelandic dinner. An on-site deli corner offers a range of light bites and drinks.
