WELCOME TO SCAPLAS 2022 IN REYKJAVIK, ICELAND

Welcome

It is our pleasure to announce the 38th Congress of the Scandinavian Association of Plastic Surgeons – SCAPLAS, taking place in Reykjavík, Iceland, 13 – 15 June 2022. The 10th Nordic Congress of Nurses in Plastic Surgery will be a part of the Congress and take place 13 – 14 June 2022. The 17th Nordic Burn Meeting will be held 12 – 13 June 2022, in conjunction with the Congress.

We will be celebrating 70 years anniversary of SCAPLAS (1951-2021)!

This is a plastic surgery-focused congress   that brings surgeons, nurses, and residents together from the Nordic Countries? and beyond. The congress will not only connect plastic surgeons and nurses professionally from these countries, but also will help forge and reinforce friendships that can last throughout our careers. The Congress will be held in Harpa Concert Hall and Conference Centre that is located in the heart of Reykjavik, overlooking the Faxaflói bay and Mount Esja.  It is close to most of the Congress hotels, art galleries, shopping areas and restaurants.

June – Iceland’s month of “the midnight sun” – is a wondrous time for a visit.  We will offer various excursions hoping participants will use this opportunity to take time to enjoy the unique nature of Iceland as well as shape the future of plastic surgery together!

We are looking forward to seeing you in Iceland!

One of the many things that make the Icelandic horse so special is how colorful they are! They are indeed one of the most colorful breeds in the whole world with over 40 colors and 100 variations! The horse in this picture is a red roan, a truly magical color! Roans change their coat color depending on the season. Pretty cool, don’t you think?

Did you expect to find this almost tropical-looking spot in Iceland? 🇮🇸 Rauðasandur in the @visitwestfjords is a 10 km (6 miles) long red sand beach with colors ranging from white through yellow through red to black. As the white sand beaches might be common to you, this is a unique spot for Icelanders used to volcanic beaches with black sand. This tranquil oasis owes the unique coloring to its location as the Westfjords, one of the oldest parts of Iceland, are no longer volcanically active.

Admire the landscape around Dyrholæy lighthouse situated in @southiceland ✨ Are you brave enough to go up and see the views of the nearby black beaches? Visit this unique lighthouse, resembling a medieval tower, and get inspired by the soft colors of the landscape surrounding it ✨ 
👉🏻 Pro tip: as you travel around the Dyrhólaey nature reserve in the summertime, be mindful of the closed bird nesting areas.

If you’re looking for an off-the-beaten-path destination, head to @visitausturland to see the Klifbrekkufossar (a tongue twister, we know 😜). This long waterfall has seven drops and a height of 90 meters (300 feet), making it one of the highest waterfalls in Iceland. The clear water of the falls and the surrounding lush vegetation make Klifbrekkufossar a uniquely beautiful spot 😍
