Iceland Theme-Based Incentive Tours

How about a theme tour? A tour that gives you insight into Icelandic culture and cuisine, a tour that has reference to the movies, or one that lets you test your skills against real Vikings?  Whatever activity you choose, our professional team will put together a program adapted to your wishes. We have a wide variety of different themes you can choose from, or if you have an idea about a theme we will be happy to work it out for you.

With a Taste of Iceland tour you will get a taste of both nature and first class Icelandic cuisine. Enjoy a combination of spectacular sights, food and contact with the glacier ice. On the Myth and Mystery tour, we dive into the underworld of ghosts and other mystical beings in Iceland.

On the Visit to the Vikings tour, you’ll learn about the lives and craft of the ancient Vikings and test your aptitude in their sports and arts; or we can show you what the modern Vikings are doing with The Viking games, the new way. In Mission Bomb - James Bond style, the group has to complete a mission, with flair of course. After the mission is accomplished the Bond girls will hand out the James Bond award. And a visit to Reykjavík, City of Energy and Culture takes you on a guided tour in the vibrant city of Reykjavík with emphasis on culture, design and art.

Multi Day Programs

The perfect incentive involves a mixture of city culture and country surroundings, exciting activities and luxury experience after which you will feel refreshed and rejuvenated.

With a multi day program you can go further into the Icelandic interior for a day of activities and then spend the night in a mountain hut out in the wilderness, or even up on a glacier. Away from the crowded city streets or the stress of your office where you can, depending on the season, experience the midnight sun or enjoy the northern lights. You can also spend the night in the comfort and quiet of a country hotel if you prefer, even if your days are spent out in the wild!

Enjoy a stay at a high quality hotel in Reykjavik before and after your adventure and get to know the city’s restaurant culture and revitalize yourself in one of the many spas or thermal pools.


Survival

Why not take your active group out for a test of survival together with team building exercises?

Combine hiking with some activities, trials and tests in a daylong or multi-day program. How will they cope with finding their way around the wilderness? Can they work together to find solutions to problems that will help them gain ground? Who is the fastest? Who is the most resourceful? A survival program has your group find order and harmony out of challenging circumstances and tries their resourcefulness. In a multi-day program you can either spend a night in mountain huts, or camp out in tents in the back country, adding a little edge to the survival experience!

Taste of Iceland

Discover traditional Icelandic cuisine in natural settings. Dried fish, dark bread and smoked meat!

Traditionally Icelandic cuisine consists mostly of fish, lamb and dairy. Back in the days when food was scarce, Icelanders had to learn how to make use of all they could get their hands on. And they had to find ways to preserve their food stock throughout the long winter. Dried fish, cured meat, fermented shark, burnt sheep’s head, haggis conserved in sour milk and other Icelandic dishes came into existence from these methods.

This traditional food, Thorramatur along with the Icelandic Brennivín schnapps (once named Black Death), is still enjoyed by Icelanders at an annual midwinter fest called Thorrablot. This tradition is an important part of Icelandic cultural heritage.

Iceland Rovers will take you out in nature to sample some of Iceland’s best known traditional dishes and learn about age old traditions.

In spite of what you might have heard, it is not all pickled, smoked or salty. Really!
