Reykjavík: A source of energy

In the acclaimed novel of Jules Verne, A journey to the center of the earth, the journey started in Iceland. It still does.

The fast track

Few nations have evolved as fast as Iceland in the last 150 years. Moving from a community based on agriculture and fishing to a modern hi-tech society with a strong profile in fisheries in harmony with nature, tourism, renewable energy, innovative businesses and culture.

New dimensions

Harpa, the conference and concert hall of Reykjavík, added a new dimension to the conference environment in Iceland. Harpa creates opportunities for large and complicated conventions and conferences with high-end facilities and a unique location.

Adrenalin-fueled inspiration

A conference is not only about what happens inside the conference halls. What makes Iceland unique for conventions is of course the amazing nature. Event companies can arrange all kinds of activites: whale-watching, snow-mobiling on glaciers, river-rafting, helicopter tours, fly-fishing and many more activities that get the adrenalin flowing.

In harmony with nature

Iceland is an energetic place. Its breathtaking nature is still being formed by the powerful forces of nature, the cliché being the island of fire and ice. Iceland’s houses and its famous swimming pools are heated by renewable energy from both hydroelectric and geothermal powerplants. The clean and fresh air is one of the nation’s pride.

Meet us in the middle

In the summer of 2018, 28 airlines offer direct flights to Iceland, and the whole year there are direct flights from major cities in North-America and Europe. Reykjavík is only a 40 minutes drive from the international airport. The domestic airport is located in the heart of Reykjavík, connecting the capital and other parts of the country with maximum 1 hour flights.

Welcome back

In Reykjavík you experience a safe, clean and creative European city that will raise your spirits and widen your horizon. And the Reykjavík experience and inspiration will travel with you back home.
