(Graphic: Arctic Portal) Arctic Week in Iceland October of 2013 presents an excellent opportunity to visit Iceland and attend two exciting Arctic conferences, held back to back in one of Europe's hottest travel destinations.

Visitors will have the chance to travel around the country as the Arctic Energy Summit (8-10 October) is held in the town of Akureyri in the north of Iceland, while the Arctic Circle assembly (12-14 October) will take place in the southern capital, Reykjavík.

This provides the perfect opportunity to discover Iceland while attending two high-level international Arctic conferences – engaging in an important dialogue on the future of the Arctic – all in one trip.

Several opportunities around the conferences give visitors an opportunity to experience Iceland, including familiar hotspots such as the Blue Lagoon or the Golden Circle, as well as the Lonely Planet's top destination of 2013, Northern Iceland, with its boiling mud pools, erupting geysers, waterfalls and unique landscapes. The welcoming hospitality of Icelanders allows visitors to have a relaxing but exciting time wherever they go.

The imagination is the only limitation of an Icelandic experience!
