05 Jul Iceland
Iceland is a destination many would not think of when it comes down to organising an incentive trip, however it should 100% be considered as one! Iceland has so much to offer and is an all year-round incentive destination! Iceland ticks all the right boxes when it comes down to imaginative incentive. Iceland offers unique experiences. Whether it’s chasing the mystical northern lights in a jeep designed for adventure, racing across the icy wilderness on a sledge pulled by huskies, drifting off to sleep in a cosy glass igloo or relaxing in the healing waters of the Blue Lagoon, this varied destination will not fail to excite.
Activities in Iceland
If you are organising an Iceland incentive trip, then there is one activity that must be in your programme! The famous Blue Lagoon, a geothermal spa, one of Iceland’s most unique and popular attractions! Only a 40-minute drive from
Reykjavik, the Blue lagoon is the ideal rest stop for any traveller. Soak in the blend of
mineral rich geothermal water and salty ocean water from the Atlantic Ocean while surrounded by a lunar lava landscape. Built into an 800-year-old lava cliff on the west bank of the Blue Lagoon, Lava Restaurant is a place where dynamic cuisine and enchanting design create unforgettable culinary experiences. We would definitely recommend building in a lunch here, so you can really savour the scenery.
Iceland’s incredible landscape is made up of the most magnificent, ancient glaciers. These glaciers open up a whole lot of fun and unique activities that your group can take part in. Glacier Hiking is one of the most popular tour activities in Iceland. With a range of different hikes available there will sure be one to fit within your programme nicely. While on the hike why not try and tie it in with seeing some more of Iceland’s spectacular natural landmarks such as Skogafoss and Seljalandsfoss – two of Iceland’s wonderful waterfalls.
