Adventures in Iceland
Imagine watching an ancient geyser erupt before your eyes, hiking through a canyon to a hidden waterfall, enjoying a stretch/mobility class in a cave on a black sand beach, and bathing in natural geothermal pools. Our Iceland Adventure Retreat will bring all of this to life - and more! Plus, we'll be in town for the annual Reykjavik marathon, so you have the (totally optional) opportunity to join the 3K fun run, 10K or half!
On this exciting retreat, we'll experience some of the island’s most precious natural wonders and unique adventures while also staying active through daily workouts and getting to know the local culture and cuisine! And, of course, traveling with other like-minded guests will make this shared experience even more special!
In this special adventure-focused Ketanga retreat, we will enjoy a mix of traditional HIIT workouts with some stretch classes sprinkled in, and active adventures like hiking. The workouts are for all levels and will be made up of primarily bodyweight exercises.
This trip is full of adventures ranging from visiting some of the country’s most popular highlights to unique, lesser known experiences. We have a day planned to explore the Golden Circle, home of Thingvellir National Park, the erupting Geysir and Gullfoss waterfall. We will also go hiking on in a canyon, visit the Blue Lagoon, and have an option to add-on with excursions like riding Icelandic horses or soaking in the Sky Lagoon.
There’s nothing more relaxing than looking at natural beauty and unique landscapes. Throughout our stops on the retreat, we will take a moment here and there for (optional) meditation, journaling or photography. We also have incorporated a free day on the schedule to relax, visit the spa or sign up for an extra excursion of your choice.

Born and raised in Hastings, Nebraska, Amanda Butler has always been a mover and a shaker. At three, her parents put her in ballet and tap, eventually tacking on just about any sport that kept her moving. Long hours on the field and in the studio turned to long hours in the weight room, doing 6 AM ‘agilities’ with the football players and learning the importance of persistence and dedication to your craft.
Amanda’s ‘no-secret-sauce, just do the work’ approach to fitness has made her a sought-after group instructor, personal trainer, and program coordinator on the ground floor of the NYC fitness industry. A founding trainer of The Fhitting Room and BFX, she’s branched into the digital fitness world, programming and teaching for Aaptiv, NEOU, and TRX. Amanda was also one of the very first Ketanga Coaches and has led multiple retreats over the years.
When she’s not coaching, she is spending time with her three children Alexis, Parker, Logan, and husband, Pablo. Every Sunday, you can find two gratefully exhausted parents splitting a chocolate chip walnut cookie at Levain Bakery.
