Any successful conference trip will always combine business with pleasure! The day begins with a visit to some of Iceland’s natural wonders. The tour starts in Reykjavík and takes in the gorgeous Thingvellir National Park. Iceland is located on top of a rift between the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates, and Thingvellir is a great place to observe the fault that is forming as the two continents slowly drift apart from one another.
After a quick stop for lunch you can then travel onwards to the most active geyser in Iceland, Strokkur. With its regular eruptions every five minutes, you will have several chances to experience the majestic cascade of water that is thrown up into the sky each time the geyser goes off. The next stop of the day is Gullfoss, a waterfall in two steps that offers visitors the chance to get up close to its mighty rushing waters as they hurtle over the cliff and down into a ravine.
On the way back to Reykjavík you will pass through the town of Hveragerdi where fruits and vegetables are grown in greenhouses heated from geothermal sources. You will be back at the hotel by around 17:00. In the evening, you will be able to enjoy an exquisite dinner together at one of Reykjavík’s many restaurants.
Round off the evening in a cosy pub or on a rocking dance floor. Iceland’s night life is just as hot as its hot springs! Most bars and nightclubs are located closely together in central Reykjavík, so get the gang together one last time and set off on a pub crawl – the perfect way to round off your visit to Iceland and your conference getaway.
