Come and be inspired

Come and be inspired. Reykjavík is a vibrant city with an excellent infrastructure, which means access to cutting-edge technology, inspiring meeting venues and warm hospitable people willing and able to render the best service.

Reykjavík is hip, it’s cool, it’s small but offers everything that large cities do. Good hotels, good food, good nightlife, good music and the nature is only a few steps away. And it’s finally affordable to go there  - Lonely Planet's reader

The capital city Reykjavik is expanding its meetings infrastructure and evolving into a premiere location choice for congress and incentive planners, only 3 hours from mainland Europe and 5 hours from N-America. Unlike some major European cities whose size can be intimidating, Reykjavik has a small-scale urban center that attendees find easy to navigate. The hassle-free city center is safe, clean and packed with restaurants, shopping, culture and vibrant nightlife. Visiting delegates enjoy interacting with the friendly Icelanders who speak English as their second language, and often other Scandinavian and European languages.

Iceland ranks no.1 on the Global Peace Index 2014 as well as the friendliest nation by World Economic Forum. Iceland was chosen one of the Best-Value destinations for Europe 2013 by Lonely Planet. The capital city Reykjavík was voted top destination 2012 by Lonely Planet and National Geographic named Iceland among the worlds best destinations in 2012. Let´s hope you agree with them!

In August  2011, the City of Reykjavik was designated a UNESCO City of Literature as it boasts an outstanding literary history and has one of the highest per capita book publishing rates in the world. It is the only non-English speaking such city to be awarded this honour.

Reykjavík was named the World Festival and Event City by the International Festivals & Events Association. You can have a look at the digital brochures Reykjavík Festival City and the Reykjavík Event Calendar and see for yourself how festive our city is. CNN has also named Reykjavik as one of the worlds five most interesting Christmas destinations. Visit Reykjavík has taken the Christmas City´s holiday preperations a step further in collaboration with various companies.
