Introduction

Dear Doctors We invite you to visit Iceland and see for yourself what all the excitement is about. We have customised a medical conference encompassing all of Iceland’s fascinating destinations and natural abundance trove that offer a multitude of scenery. Iceland is one of the best places in the world to witness the wonder that is the northern lights. The auroras are unpredictable, but whenever the sky is dark and clear and If you’re lucky, you’ll catch the mystical green lights dancing in the sky on a cold, clear winter night. No two northern lights shows are the same, which means no two winter nights in Iceland are the same either. This winter journey takes you to one of the most visually breathtaking countries in Europe to see the Northern Lights. The conference will be held in March as statistically March is considered to be one of the most active months for viewing the northern lights and the temperatures are still low and the night sky is clear and black. This collision between electrically charged particles from the sun that enter the earth’s atmosphere and make grown people cry. Iceland is the land of contrasts; ice and fire; glaciers and volcanoes; mountains and lakes; waterfalls and geysers and we will endeavour to showcase everything Iceland has to offer. The landscapes will be ever changing, from grassy fields to black lava sands, waterfalls to views of glaciers, fjords between rugged mountains, picturesque villages, rivers, volcanoes, horses, sheep, birds... There is so much to see that you will often forget about time and distances. Dining experiences in the top 10 restaurants in Iceland which offer exciting fusions that incorporate Icelandic herbs, fresh seasonal local produce, seafood and much much more. Delicious epicurean delights showcasing the best of the culinary landscape of Iceland. Partake in fresh seasonal feasts with some of Iceland’s greatest chefs. The northern lights, are nothing short of magical, there are many more reasons you’ll be enchanted on a visit to Iceland.

Delegates arrive in Iceland. Private transfers will be organised from Keflavik Airport to your hotel. Dining Experience: This evening join the delegation for the welcome dinner at Fiskfelagio, where master chef, Lárus Gunnar Jónasson heads a team of talented chefs that work culinary alchemy, using the best that Iceland has to offer. Once upon a time, when the Fish Company first opened, a patron set aside his plate and remarked satisfied; “without fail, all the best adventures take place under a bridge.”To this day this has remained the restaurants slogan and objective, to make a dining experience that is both exciting and homey.

Day 2 – Friday 08 March 2019 - (B,L,DA)

Explore Iceland’s Golden Circle by Icelandic Super Jeeps,these jeeps are quite unique and found only in Iceland and are the best way to experience Iceland. The Golden Circle is the quintessential Icelandic excursion. Taking in the magnificent sights of Gullfoss waterfall, Geysir geothermal area and Thingvellir National Park. We will visit Iceland's most popular sights: Thingvellir national park, Geysir geothermal area and Gullfoss waterfall. Thingvellir is a favourite stop among travellers along the Golden Circle route. It has been a National Park in Iceland since 1928 and was named a World Heritage site by UNESCO in 2004. When Viking settlers arrived in the 10th century it was the site they chose as the meeting place of Althing, the world’s first parliament. You will visit the “Geothermal Bakery” where you will experience the baking of rye bread by using the heat only a few centimetres from the surface of the earth. Lunch experience: Have you experienced a Glacier before?.....this is an opportunity to experience the glacier in a new way. You will be equipped with the right thermal clothing and enjoy “buffet lunch on a glacier”. Equipped like this, you can sit in the snow and never feel it, eat your warm soup and catered food outdoors while admiring the glacier and the beautiful scenery around: mountains, the Haukadalur Valley, rivers and the moon-like landscape of this part of Iceland. Dining Experience: Hrefna Rósa Sætran - one of Iceland's best chefs owns and operates The Grillmarket together with Guðlaugur P. Frímannssonsson. Their philosophy is to take the best ingredients available and prepare them with care and expertise. The airm of the Grillmarket is to work closely with local farmers. They buy most of their produce directly from the farm , where the farmers inform them what’s in season. They cook the produce in their own special way and you the customer enjoy the end result. Through their cooking they strive to highlight the origin of each product while using fire, smoke , fire logs and coal. The outcome is an unexpected and exciting culinary treat for the customers where Icelandic heritage and the modern age meet. (B,L,DA)
