Startup Iceland Adventure 2012 Recap in Pictures

by / ⠀Startup Advice / January 7, 2013

In 2012, Under30Experiences ran two incredible excursions to Iceland to see entrepreneurial perspectives abroad and explore the volcanoes and glaciers across the arctic backcountry.  The trips were truly once in a lifetime experiences for the attendees of our new entrepreneurial travel brand Under30Experiences, designed to give young people new perspectives and live differently.

The highlights included: superjeeping atop the Eyjafjallajökull volcano, canyoning in glacial water, jet boating at the magnificent Vestmannaeyjar Islands, bonfires beneath a sun that never sets during an Icelandic summer,  bathing in the world famous Blue Lagoon, a private reception at the US Embassy, an exclusive invitation to the home of the President of Iceland, and the Startup Iceland Conference.

Check out the pictures of from our previous two trips to Iceland and our Under30CEO GREEN Business Tour Costa Rica.
