Pre-Conference Day on the Reykjanes Peninsula
August 23-24

The Reykjanes Peninsula exists where the North Atlantic ridge rises from the ocean, and is a region of lava fields, astonishing cliffs, and black sand beaches. Our day begins with a visit to the legendary geothermal spa of the Blue Lagoon, an otherworldly place with its black lava surroundings, clouds of steam, and the healing properties of its waters. We continue with an afternoon at Vikingaheimar, a beautifully designed museum devoted to Viking history, and an evening amongst the colorful buildings and cultural delights of Reykjavik, the world’s most northern capital.
