On Monday, after the conference, we have organized an all day tour with some of ICE-SAR's SuperJeeps. The aim is to introduce to our participants ICE-SAR's use of SuperJeeps in SAR and take in some dramatic scenery and rugged nature. This will be a great trip and definitely worth taking an extra day for.
Participants will be picked up at Hotel Marina and Hotel Natura. If you are staying elsewhere you need to be there at 08:00 sharp. Be sure to bring warm clothes for rain and/or snow, including hats and mittens.
This guided tour will start by visiting Þingvellir National Park where our guide will tell us about the geology and history of the place, which holds a special place in the heart of the Icelandic nation.
From there we will head to Langjökull glacier, Iceland´s second largest glacier where we will visit Into the Glacier (www.intotheglacier.is)
Other stops on this tour include Kaldidalur, Hraunfossar lava waterfalls, Húsafell and if time allows some more.
Departure from Hotel Marina is at 08:00, from Hotel Natura at 08:15 and estimated arrival back to Reykjavík is between 19:00 and 21:00, weather depending. Lunch and light snack is included in the tour.
