Crisp Clean Cool Air and Can-Do Attitude

Clean and fresh air is one of the nation’s pride. The island is sometimes cool and windy, being located in the Arctic area of the world, but the wind blows away pollution – leaving the Icelandic air crisp, healthy, and fresh.

Icelanders also pride themselves on a “can-do attitude,” that is rich in their culture. The lines of communication are always short, and people are willing to go the extra mile to make things happen. Weather conditions and close proximity to nature have taught Icelanders to be flexible and resilient, facing unexpected challenges with a smile and by rolling up their sleeves.

Reykjavik – The City Next Door to Nature

Reykjavik, the capital city, is uniquely connected to nature. A salmon river runs through the city. Whale-watching boats sail from the harbor in the heart of Reykjavik. Adventure rides on glaciers are two hours away, and a few hour tour can include exploration of amazing geysers, waterfalls, black beaches, and hot spring bathing. Rightfully called the land of ice and fire, the breathtaking landscape is still being formed by the powerful forces of nature.

For those who enjoy adventure, history, nature, and culinary delights – even all in a day or two – Iceland has been described as the meetings- and incentive planner´s paradise. Expansive open spaces, towering mountains, deep gorges, and magnificent glaciers are open for exploration and enjoyment.

Reykjavik has a small-scale urban center that attendees find easy to navigate. The hassle-free city center is safe, clean, and packed with restaurants, shopping, culture, and vibrant nightlife.  Iceland’s high level of education, technological expertise, flourishing start-up culture, and magical nature make the destination a perfect backdrop for international meetings and first-class events. It only takes around 40 minutes to reach the city center from the airport.

Inside Langjökull Glacier with First Class Travel

It is the world’s largest man-made ice cave. Tunneled into Europe’s second largest glacier, Langjökull “the Long Glacier”. Giving visitors a chance to experience the magnificent “blue ice” which is buried deep beneath the glacier’s surface.

The tunnel is 500 meters long. The layers of ice walls show the chronological story of the glacier and each black line shows a volcanic eruption. Even from the famous Eyjafjallajökull volcanic eruption. Each layer tells a story. The tunnel consists of numerous nooks and dens and even a small chapel.

Since glaciers are constantly moving and also climate change is taking its toll, it is not known for how long this ice cave tunnel is going to last. But it is estimated that it will last for about 10 years with maintenance.

An 8-wheel drive glacier monster truck, which was converted from an ex-NATO cruise missile launcher, takes visitors from base camp to the tunnel entrance.

The Blue Lagoon with First Class Travel in March

Experiencing the radiant powers of the Blue Lagoon’s geothermal seawater in the heart of a volcanic landscape.
The Blue Lagoon holds nine million liters of geothermal seawater which is naturally renewed every 40 hours. This natural resource is rich in salt, silica, and other minerals.
The water temperature is generally between 37°C and 40°C (98-104°F). But owing to variables outside of our control, including the weather and the season, the water temperature sometimes fluctuates beyond this range. Nonetheless, the lagoon remains warm, relaxing, and rejuvenating throughout the year.
