THE LIGHT FANTASTIC.
ICELAND. 14–17 FEBRUARY 2019.
Travel with us to the land of fire and ice – BMW i Pure Impulse invites you to join us for an adventure in Iceland, a country of the most amazing extremes, and explore this mystical destination that has captured the imaginations of travellers from all over the globe.
Arrive in Reykjavík and enjoy a relaxed evening drinking in the vibe of this artsy, exciting city before the programme starts the following morning: a city tour will let you in on some of the secrets of the world’s northernmost capital.
We then make our way out of the city to ION Luxury Adventure Hotel*. Set at the foot of Mount Hengill near Thingvellir National Park, this eco-luxury hotel is surrounded by majestic lava fields, the stilted structure dramatically protruding from the mountain. That afternoon, you will have the chance to relax and enjoy the amazing facilities – take a soak in the thermal pool underneath the hotel or warm up in the sauna.
In the evening, you will meet Rebecca Stephens, a journalist-turned-climber who became the first British woman to climb Mount Everest in 1993. Following her passion, she went on to scale the Seven Summits, the highest mountain peaks of each of the seven continents – again a first for a British woman. Immerse yourself in her fascinating story and ask questions about her experiences and adventures. With Rebecca joining us as a special guest for the remainder of the event, there will be plenty of time to find out everything you want to know – an inspiration for you and the adventure you are on.
Your winter woollies are required the following day when we head out early to explore the forces of nature shaping the dramatic landscapes of this country. Watch the stunning scenery unfold in front of you while skilled drivers navigate sturdy 4×4 vehicles across rugged trails and unbridged rivers.
Our destinations for the day include Seljalandsfoss, a mesmerising waterfall cascading 65 metres down, the shape of the cliff allowing visitors to walk behind the curtain of water, as well as Þórsmörk, the “valley of Thor”. Nestled between three glaciers, this breathtaking valley is a hiker’s delight, with the rough beauty of this stark country on full display.
Another dinner in the company of your fellow BMW i Pure Impulse members lets you reminisce about an unforgettable day before we see out the visit to this land that defies even the boldest of expectations.
