About Thor Olafsson
My name is Thor and I was born in Reykjavik Iceland. My wife Svava Björk is an architect and she is the one who designed the entire remodeling of Eirð retreat, which has been going on since the beginnin of 2018. Svava Björk, myself and our 6 children have all been directly involved in the renovation work :) I work internationally as an executive coach and serve as the CEO of a group of companies called the Strategic Leadership Group.
Thor Olafsson purchased this villa in 2017
Why Thor Olafsson chose Rangárþing ytra
Eirð retreat started as a dream, many many years ago. A dream of working with leaders on grounding themselves as human beings, while creating powerful and sustainable strategies for the organizations they lead. It was always meant to stand by a lake to enjoy the calming energy that comes with a body of water. It was also meant to have an Icelandic forest (bushes ;) ) and privacy. When we found this location, we felt the gods had smiled upon bought it immediately. For us it is a project that will continue to grow and develop over the next few years, as we add meditation spots, yoga facilities, more guesthouses, a sauna, jacuzzi etc. So stay tuned on updates :)
What makes this villa unique
The visitors we have had so far, mostly friends and some clients, have talked about the lake view and the tranquility as the unique aspects of Eirð. You really feel connected to Icelandic nature here :) The other benefits is the strategic there are so many interesting attractions nearby.
