About Reykjavik, the Nature and Wellness Destination

When it comes to MICE destinations that want to lead the pack in overall wellness, it goes beyond fitness, spa, and healthy food offerings. For the ever-evolving sustainable and life-affirming experience the top priority now goes to connecting with nature. Studies show that spending time in nature can reduce stress, boost energy levels, and improve creativity and productivity.

It is immediately clear upon arriving in Reykjavik that you’re surrounded by nature. With that welcoming crispy air, surrounded by unspoiled mountain landscapes while hemmed in by the ocean and its overflying birds, our city offers awe-inspiring moments filled with wellness.

Some of the welcomed feedback we get from our partners in the international MICE industry is how the nature around Reykjavík fuels the attendee experience along with the positive delivery it has on overall morale, performance, energy, and wellbeing.

Those of us working in an industry where attending international meetings and events are a big portion of the load, we’re aware that several conference rooms, exhibition halls, and centers are structured without windows. This is a primary reason for the creative and clever fashion of bringing nature inside by offering green and clean meals, peppered with outdoor fitness programs.

Wellness being the top trend in the meetings industry today, the expectation is quite high and healthy integration alone doesn’t meet the satisfaction of attendees anymore. There needs to be an elevation of overall wellness and nature that includes being immersed in actual nature via touch, sight, and feel.

If elements of nature speak to your criteria, we invite you to view our slideshow with images of some our wellness and nature experiences Reykjavik has to offer, ideally created for conferences, meetings or incentive trips of any size. Allow us to invite you to tap into mindful and natureful resources at your next destination. It being Reykjavik.

Until then, our arctic nature awaits:-)
