Incentives in Iceland

Iceland is an island shaped by great forces.  Volcanoes rumble and grumble beneath the ice, glaciers carve pathways through the land and spouts of steam erupt from geysers.  The majority of natives refuse to deny the existence of ‘hidden beings’ such as fairies and trolls.  While this might seem a more than a little far-fetched, if fairytale creatures were among us wouldn’t they choose this spectacular and pristine landscape as their home?  Walk on glaciers which sparkle as though diamond encrusted.  Watch the colours of the aurora borealis caress the sky.  Immerse yourself in the splendour of this land.

A myriad of unique adventures await whether you want to luxuriate in the hot springs and mud of the Blue Lagoon or plunge into the gap between North America and Europe at the Silfra Fissure.  Explore culture in Iceland’s capital, Reykjavik, and tour the country’s wonders in Thingvellir National Park.  There is also an exciting range of dining options available.  Dine at Reykjavik harbour, at a restaurant overlooking the blue lagoon or with a view of geysers.  Fancy a barbecue on a glacier? How about a viking inspired evening to accompany your meal?

Getting to Iceland

Just a 2.5-3 hour flight from the UK, a range of scheduled and low-cost flights are available.  Direct flights depart from several regional airports as well as from major international destinations.  Iceland is easily accessible and perfectly located for a slightly unusual short incentive break.  A fascinating and magical place far removed from what we know, Iceland delights and dazzles.  Whether you want to enjoy relaxation or a rush, Iceland can cater to your needs.

Suggested Activities & Attractions

Relax

Blue Lagoon

A geothermal spa located in a lava field, the Blue Lagoon is iconic of Iceland.  Milky turquoise waters are fed from the Svartsengi geothermal plant.  The water is a perfect 38°c and rich in blue-green algae, mineral salts and silica mud.  Bathers smooth the mud over their skin for the ultimate results.  This is an essential part of any trip to Iceland.

Explore

Golden Circle Jeep Tour

This stunning tour takes you to see the highlights of Iceland including the country’s most famous waterfall.  In sunshine, rainbows explode out of Gullfoss’ stunning double cascade and in the winter the falls look magical as they sparkle with ice crystals.  See also the Geysir and explore Thingvellir National Park.  This picturesque place of vivid beauty is also where the Viking’s founded the world’s first democratic government!

Reykjavik City Sightseeing

Enjoy a walking tour of Iceland’s capital city.  Uncover the nation’s history, the evolution of Reykjavik and Iceland’s fascinating culture.  The world’s most northerly capital, though small by international standards, is surprisingly cosmopolitan and combines colourful buildings and a vibrant art scene, exciting culinary choices and Viking history.

Adventure

Snorkel between Tectonic Plates

The Silfra Fissure is the gap between the two tectonic plates.  Plunge between two continents and enjoy amazing visibility as you swim through the clear glacial waters.  This is a truly unique experience.

Jeep Self Drive

This self-driving adventure allows you to experience Iceland’s raw nature.  Be amazed by the stunning beauty surrounding you as you drive across the rough terrain and explore Iceland’s interior.  Whether visiting in winter or summer, you will be rewarded with spectacular scenery.

Lava Caving

Enjoy a fascinating day trip to explore the hidden underground system of a lava cave.  Carved hundreds of years ago by a river of molten lava, this natural phenomenon is one of Iceland’s best kept secrets.

Glacier Walk on Sólheimajökull

An adventure through a wonderland of ice sculpture, water cauldrons, ridges and deep crevasses.  Wander through this icy fantasy world.

Wildlife

Whale and Puffin Watching

Gentle giants wave their tales and dolphins leap from the water.  Experience Iceland’s marine wildlife in a pristine environment.  Twenty types of whale can be found in Iceland’s waters, along with seven types of seal.  Although this distinctive seabird spends most of its life at sea, between April and September, Atlantic puffins form breeding colonies in Iceland.  Around 60% of the world’s Atlantic puffins nest here.
