“Best experience of my life!” - Allison, USA
Join Fern E. Trelfa and Cherub Sanson for soul shaking adventure into the Icelandic wilderness. This retreat is a deep dive into Another World, exposing you to the greatest miracle we will ever, ever know - true Nature. Our hope is that every single one of your cells vibrates with aliveness and a deep, wild remembrance.
This will be Maison Fish’s forth adventure to Iceland - each experience leaves us even more spellbound and hungry to share this truly transformational retreat with others.
We’ll hike through mossy moorlands, bathe in natural geothermal rivers and explore jurassic landscapes. We will feel momentous waterfalls pound in our chests, send flute melodies into the breeze and meditate on the infinite possibilities of the galazy above.
All of this layered within a twice daily practice of yoga, movement, meditation and sound healing. Fern and Cherub will expertly come together to weave a potent spell as we plunge into Nature’s couldron and dip our toes in Icelandic myth.
Maison Fish are calling in wildly curious and adventurous souls from around the globe to join them in a truly unforgettable retreat experience. This five night adventure promises to be loaded with wisdom, creativity and magic. It really is not to be missed.
Fern is a kind, creative and skilled teacher who has come to perceive the practice of yoga as energetic artistry. You can expect to feel rooted in the mysticism of yoga, yet Fern is masterful at weaving the body through an intelligent web of movement loaded with biomechanical richness. Her embodied approach enables a deep sense of ease, strength and connectivity to the human form. Breath, voice and sound work are integrated as powerful tools to work with the energetic body and nervous systems. Fern’s ultimate hope is to inspire students with their own magnificent human design, and through learning how to truly embody it, how we can all access our own unique magic. Fern is also a body worker, reiki practioner and mentor to rising yoga teachers. She is the founder of Maison Fish retreats, and co-creator on the Grace and Presence Yoga Teacher Training.
Cherub Sanson is an electric force of Nature whose purpose is to share with the world the transformational powers of sound. Working closely with musician Tim Wheater, she is a pioneering sound imagineer and an inspiration to many of the incredible sound healers in London. In her sound journeys, you can expect to experience a high frequency fusion of planet gongs, drums, flutes and chimes to guide you into a deep and blissful states of pure presence. The healing harmonics are known to stimulate your immune system and promote the release of seratonin & dopamine - happy chemicals! - helping you to relax & feel amazing.
Maison Fish love working with Cherub – she has an incredible gift for opening the gates of Spirit for those who operate in logic, yet gives those who like to fly a place to land. We ask you to suspend any disbelief when working with our Cosmic Fish, and simply ride her spell to see where you end up

We refuse to compromise on the quality of eggs, dairy or butter. Mamma Fish is happy to talk you through her recipes so you can take the magic home.
Our jaws dropped when we first discovered the new Maison Fish home at the top of the world. We lit a candle and said a prayer to the manifestation Gods, and now we are so excited to make this vision a reality in such a special place.
Situated South of the Island conveniently close to Thingvellir National Park , Maison Fish ICELAND is a premium lodge with its very own fifteen person hot tub, fire pit, gym and sauna. Our retreat home is nestled away from any light pollution at the bottom of a mountain, enabling a truly magical experience of the Northern Lights (if they choose to visit!).
Our house is decorated to a decadent and high standard- think exposed wood, chandeliers and cosy, comfy corners for you to curl up with a book or journal. Maison Fish will transform a sacred space into our spacious yoga shala, adorned with candles and trinklets of magic to create a truly beautiful shell for us to open up and move through our yoga journey.
Maison Fish ICELAND will be our luxurious home at the top of the world. Fall back into the soft, warm nest that the Maison Fish team will expertly create for you and simply soak it all up.

WHAT OTHERS HAVE SAID:
Best experience of my life! Incredible location, beautiful lodge with tons of space and beautiful rooms, delicious healthy food that kept us full but not too full, majestic geothermal tub perfect for gazing at the milky way and even the northern lights, talented and very hands-on yoga instructors and other-worldly sound healing! - Allison, USA
Iceland is an epic backdrop to this retreat. Maison Fish Iceland was truly an other world experience at the top of the world. A retreat that takes you into its embrace - mind, body and soul. Intelligent yoga and mind blowing sound amongst jaw dropping Nature. Hot tubs in moon landscapes. Carefully sourced food. Each day unfolded deeper into the magic, and all delivered with seeming ease thanks to the family festival vibe which is so unique to the Maison Fish crew. Truly transformative. Thank you. - Becky,UK
A welcoming and inclusive retreat in magical surroundings. Fern teaches a type of yoga that makes you listen to your body and keep it moving in a natural, free flowing way - she is a teacher that not only teaches fantastic yoga but nurtures your soul. Fern radiates kindness and wellbeing. The six day retreat in Iceland rebooted my energy and creativity, the effects of which lasted for weeks after getting home. The food was delicious, the company awesome and the northern lights weren’t bad either. - Calypso, UK
Iceland is the most extraordinary location with the evidence of mother nature more powerful than anywhere I have experienced. The amazing food we enjoyed was prepared with love and a passion for good health and respect for the land. We were definitely well nourished with amazing goodness! Sound healing accompanying the yoga was a special way to enhance the retreat experience. The accommodation was fantastic- amazing, spacious, 'rockstar' house. The team worked hard to ensure added touches to make it feel like a special haven away from home. - Debbie, Australia
