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.

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

Today, we’re heading to one of Borgarfjörður’s finest treasures - Hraunfossar, or the “lava falls” ✨ 
Delicate white rivulets descend over a wide stretch of lava, flowing into the milky-turquoise waters of the Hvítá river below. A short wander upstream brings you to Barnafoss, the “children’s waterfall”, whose name derives from local folklore. 
Both waterfalls are exquisite at any time of year, though they are particularly striking in early autumn when the orange of the leaves mixes with the icy-blue stream 🍂  #inspiredbyiceland

We’re in love with this mesmerizing and utterly surreal sight of the Northern Lights at Kirkjufell mountain in @westicleand 🤩

Did you know that Icelandic horses have five gaits? 🐎

All horse breeds have three natural gaits; walk, trot and gallop, and can perform them without training. The two extra gaits that set the Icelandic horse apart from other breeds are called tölt and flying pace.

Tölt is very smooth to ride since there is no suspension between strides and it can be ridden very slowly up to a very fast speed, depending on the horse.

Flying pace is ridden very fast, even used for racing and only for short distances, 100-200 metres usually.

Laying on the water's edge, our eyes met in mist. 
For a moment we were both frozen and then thawed again. 
What flowed between us, a dense mix of curiosity amidst the haze. 
Eternally linked, tangency secure, we now knew each other's gaze. 

Portrait and poem by: @donalboyd. He has been taking over the @horsesoficeland  account for the past few days, posting portraits, reflections, and short poems from his photo session at Seljalandsfoss waterfall with horses from @islandshestar. We recommend checking out his work @horsesoficeland 😍✨

Takeover with @kyanasue at the sheep roundup starts tomorrow! 👏

The annual sheep round-up or Réttir is a collective effort of farmers, landowners, and communities to locate and herd the sheep back to large pens to sort them back to their farms before the snow flies. Kyana Sue went to the event this weekend and will be giving you a glimpse into the event on our IG story tomorrow!

While you wait, head to the link in our bio if you’re curious to know what Réttir is all about 🐑

September is the time of the year when Réttir, the annual sheep roundup event, takes place in Iceland! 🐑 Farmers, with the support of local communities, retrieve the sheep from the mountains, where they roam free during the summer. The sheep are gathered in large sheepcotes, then divided and sorted according to each farmer’s distinct markings. After that, the animals are placed in farmhouses to be safe and warm for winter. 

👉 Head to the link in bio to read all about Réttir!
@kyanasue will also take over our Instagram story the following Monday and Tuesday and give you a glimpse into the event - so stay tuned! 👏

There's nothing quite like strolling through the streets of downtown @visitreykjavik and admiring the various architectural gems, like the beautiful Government House or Stjórnarráðshúsið in Icelandic. 

Originally built as a prison, it now holds the offices of the Prime Minister. It is also worth taking a look at statues in front of Stjórnarráðshúsið, as they are the work of Einar Jónsson. One depicts King Christian IX handing over the constitution in 1874, and the other Hannes Hafstein, who became the country's first minister in 1904. The Government House is conveniently located in the heart of downtown Reykjavik, so it's hard to miss it! 🧡  #inspiredbyiceland

Looks like we’ve found our next spot in @visitausturland to put on our itinerary 😍 
Located only 30 minute drive away from the town Egilsstadir, Litlanesfoss is some of East Iceland’s spectacular waterfalls, surrounded by unusual basalt columns with a majestic cathedral-like look. It’s one of the tallest waterfalls in the country, or around 30 meters (98 ft) tall. #inspiredbyiceland
