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!

It’s time to start planning your trip to Diamond Beach by the Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon in @southiceland. 💙 When the sun is just right, these glacier chunks from the lagoon sparkle on the black sand beach like giant diamonds. You’ll find it hard to believe your eyes! ✨ #inspiredbyiceland

@northiceland is home to the 250 km (155 miles) Diamond Circle route that includes some of the most breathtaking natural phenomena and landscapes. A must-see in this area is the impressive Dettifoss Waterfall:

❄️ Dettifoss is Europe's most powerful waterfall and Iceland's most voluminous 
❄️ 96,500 gallons—or 365 cubic meters of water fall down Dettifoss every second 
❄️ This thunderous waterfall is so powerful it makes surrounding rocks vibrate, and its mist creates multiple rainbows 

Make sure to include this marvel in your North Iceland itinerary! #inspiredbyiceland

In @visitausturland, tucked away in Jokuldalur Glacier Valley, is the breathtaking Studlagil Canyon. 💙 Towering basalt columns rise from the dreamy blue-green glacial river snaking northeast through this secret paradise. Studlagil is off the beaten track but is an unforgettable sight, especially with a dusting of fresh snow. #inspiredbyiceland

Did you know that winter is ice caving season? A guided tour through the stunning crystal blue ice caves at Vatnajökull National Park in @southiceland is a must during the colder months when the ice freezes. Each ice cave is unique and temporary due to the melting and reshaping of glaciers over time. So you'll never see the same one! #inspiredbyiceland

From the top of Akranes Lighthouse, visitors can enjoy picturesque views of @westiceland year-round. The original and smaller lighthouse closer to the water was in service from 1918 until 1947. Today, the current lighthouse still shines for mariners and also serves as a unique venue to host concerts and art exhibitions. ✨ #inspiredbyiceland
