Let’s Meet in The Middle…in Reykjavik!

The well-known tagline promoting Iceland’s accessibility from both North America and Europe has always intrigued me.  The opportunity to experience it came up as I attended the Global Incentive Summit this past week.  A chance to network with international industry professionals while exploring this bucket list destination.

Iceland is not just a hype – it’s the real thing.  A five hour flight from Toronto or Montreal brings you to the land of  renewable energy system where geothermal plants serve the entire island.  Reykjavik is hip, it’s cool, it’s European, it’s small and offers everything that large cities do.  This island country where English is widely spoken has good hotels, great food, good nightlife & music and has the incredible nature only a few steps away from its capital.

During my four day stay, and despite shortening daylight,  I experienced many of what the destination offers to both leisure and meeting visitors.  Starting with Reykjavik walking tour, and continuing with ATV adventures, incredible hikes, Northern Lights hunt by Super Jeep, dip in the Blue Lagoon or hot springs, ice cave and lava tunnel explorations, riding trails on Icelandic horse, snowmobiling and fishing villages  – just to name a few.

I look forward to returning someday soon, perhaps to see the Midnight Sun!
