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), the 17th Nordic Burn Meeting and the 10th Nordic Congress of Nurses in Plastic Surgery in Reykjavík, Iceland taking place in June 2022.

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!

Venue
Harpa, the beautiful concert and conference centre features the best conditions for conferences in Iceland. It is conveniently situated at the harbour in the heart of Reykjavík and within walking distance of the city centre with shops, restaurants, art galleries and a vibrant night-life.

Social programme and excursions
Along with the social programme such as the welcoming reception and the conference dinner, participants will have the opportunity to visit Iceland‘s most spectacular attractions, including geysers, waterfalls, volcanoes and glaciers.

Accommodation
Accommodation in various price ranges nearby Harpa has been booked for participants.

Travel to Iceland
Iceland is only 3-4 hours from Europe by flight, and 5-6 hours from the East Coast of North America. A number of international airlines operate flights to Iceland year round from various cities on both sides on the Atlantic.

Did you know that Iceland is one of the most volcanically active places in the world? 🌋

On average, Iceland experiences a volcanic event every 5 years. The country sits on top of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, a 40.000 km long crack in the ocean floor caused by the separation of the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. Even today, the country is growing by about 2.5 cm per year, as it splits wider at the points where the two tectonic plates meet. Accordingly, the western part of Iceland, to the west of the volcanic zones, belongs to the North American plate and the eastern part to the Eurasian plate, which means Iceland is actually in two continents. #inspiredbyiceland

Reykjavik city is full of iconic landmarks, both downtown and in other neighborhoods. Grótta at Seltjarnarnes peninsula is one of @visitreykjavik most visited sites where this beautiful lighthouse is located. It’s the perfect place to take a walk along the sand trip or to go bird-watching. It's also one of the best spots in #Reykjavik to enjoy an incredible sunset or the northern lights during wintertime. Note that the lighthouse is only accessible during low tide but you can always enjoy it from distance.

Today, we’re heading to the northernmost town in Iceland, Siglufjörður 😍🛥 

It’s a town of spectacular natural beauty that has opportunities for various outdoor activities including hiking, playing golf, ocean swimming or go skiing in the wintertime. Like numerous other towns in the country, it has been linked to the tradition of fishing and is actually the capital of herring fishing in the Atlantic. They even have the largest maritime and industrial museum in Iceland, where visitors can get to know the herring fishery and processing industry that underpinned Iceland’s economy for much of the twentieth century.
This historic fishing town is just one of many good reasons to take a trip to @northiceland  and only an hour drive from the capital of the north, Akureyri 🙌🏻 #inspiredbyiceland

A tub with a view!? Don’t mind if we do! 😍
This outdoor bathing set-up is part of the Beer Spa - @bjorbodin in @northiceland, where the local brewery Bruggsmiðjan, producer of the popular brand Kaldi, has brought “beer culture” to new heights. The beer spa is the first of its kind in Iceland and an intoxicating idea sprung from the beer baths in the Czech Republic. The combination of young beer, live yeast and hops is said to be rejuvenating for the body and spirit. #inspiredbyiceland

This golden glow at Seljalandsfoss sure is a beauty 😍
Seljalandsfoss is one of the most well-known waterfalls in Iceland and definitely a must-visit when traveling in @southiceland.
 
Here are some of our favorite facts about the waterfall:
✨It drops 60 meters (200 ft) from a cliff that was once part of south Iceland’s coastline.
✨ It has a thin cascade and a footpath behind it at the bottom of the cliff, which makes it possible to walk behind the waterfall.
✨It is very picturesque and therefore its photo can be found in many books and calendars.
✨A little further to the west there are several other falls, among them a hidden waterfall in a gorge called Gljúfrabúi.
