Make the most of your trip to Iceland and your attendance to RESCUE 2022 conference. Participate in fun and interesting "extra-curricular" activities. Attend a formal reception, enjoy informal gatherings and official dinner. And we strongly urge you take an extra day for a tour in one of Iceland's rescue team's SuperJeeps.
Friday, 20:30 – 23:00
An important part of attending a conference like RESCUE 2022 is to share your experiences, get to know new people and talk to others with similar interests.
The Elephant's club on Friday night, at Björtuloft on the top floors of Harpa is an informal gathering of RESCUE 2022 attendees where they can grab a drink with colleagues and have a nice time in a relaxed atmosphere.
On Saturday evening we have organized an unforgetatable event. Dining beneath the great blue whale makes for a truly memorable evening. Whales of Iceland is the largest museum dedicated towards whales in Europe and possibly the world. To scale and based off of specific individuals found in the wild, a team of expert craftsmen have sculpted 23 life-like and detailed cetaceans found in Icelandic waters.
On Thursday, all our international guests are invited to a formal reception at the Ministry for Foreign Affairs. Buses, that will take guests to the reception, leave from Hotel Marina and Hotel Natura at 18:15. The buses go back to the hotels at 20.30. Dress code: Smart casual.
For those who wish to use their own transportation the reception starts at 18:30 at the Ministry for Foreign Affairs, Raudararstigur 25, Reykjavík.
On Sunday, after the conference, we have organized an day tour with some of ICE-SAR´s super jeeps. The aim is to introduce our participants ICE-SAR‘s use of super jeeps in SAR and take a look at the newest lava in Iceland, Geldingadalir, where ICE-SAR spent hundreds of hours last year working due to the eruption.
Participants will be pick up in Harpa Conference hall at 12:30 sharp. Be sure to bring warm clothes for rain and/or snow, including hats and mittens.
