Get your colleagues out of the office and into nature–take your next meeting outside
Sometimes a change of scenery is exactly what a team needs to reconnect, refocus and recharge. Pristine rivers, endless lava fields, majestic mountains and an abundance of fresh air are only a few of the reasons to visit the South Coast of Iceland. And being only a one and half hour drive from Reykjavík in South Iceland, with meeting facilities capable of hosting 180 with ease are just two of the many reasons Stracta Hotel is the ideal location for group corporate events. Come to South Iceland for the nature, stay at Stracta Hotel for the amenities.
One of the most fun things about corporate getaways is participating in the sort memorable activities that South Iceland is known for and Stracta Hotel puts you right in the middle of it all. Popular spots for frisbee golf, super jeep tours, horseback riding and kayaking can all be found nearby and the hotel’s friendly staff are more than happy to help you in making arrangements. While groups can also go glacier climbing, exploring lava caves and helicopters rides there’s also plenty to do to relax. Natural geothermal bathing is a classic Icelandic pastime as is enjoying the midnight sun in the summer and going northern lights hunting in winter.
Being outside the city doesn’t mean sacrificing good food and fine dining. Drawing inspiration from traditional Icelandic cuisine the offerings of the bistro and restaurant pair wonderfully with the hotel’s surroundings. Stracta Bistro is open throughout much of the day, serving dishes made from locally grown ingredients. Garður Restaurant offers group lunches (booked in advance), packed lunches guests can take along on their adventures around South Iceland and a delicious dinner buffet.
Hotel Stracta’s variety of well appointed rooms can accommodate a range of needs and group sizes. The studio apartments and 2-bedrooms are perfect for those who want to spend more time collaborating with the group while the standard, superior and deluxe suites offer more privacy. Having more than 140 stately rooms to choose from will satisfy all manner of lodging requirements.
South Iceland has long been a popular destination for tourists and Icelanders alike but there haven’t always been many quality lodging options in the area until Stracta Hotel appeared. Hreiðar Hermannsson and Hermann Hreiðarsson, father and son, couldn’t be more happy to have brought a comfortable yet stylish hotel to their beloved South Iceland. Hreiðar and Hermann firmly believe this gorgeous region of Iceland should be enjoyed by one and all in cozy Nordic style.
