Social Participation

Every year, Icelandair Hotels sponsor The National Cancer Society by donating a proportion of the yearly income of the so-called Pink Suite in Icelandair Hotel Reykjavik Natura. When our guests choose the Pink Suite for a more luxurious stay, they simultaneously give back to society.
Stay good - Do good


Culture & Arts

Icelandair Hotels work closely with and support contemporary artists, musicians, designers, and writers. That cooperation not only nourishes the hotels' ambiance for guests and employees but also plays a role in creating cultural conversations in society.  Icelandair Hotels choose to strengthen this kind of communication and use it to spread awareness about the importance of creative industries.

Collaboration with ICE-SAR

Icelandair Hotels have an agreement with ICE-SAR (Slysavarnarfélagið Landsbjörg) as an active sponsor, donating a fixed proportion of hotel room income to the association.

Supporting ICE-SAR (The Icelandic Association for Search and Rescue) is a part of Icelandair Hotels' social responsibility policy. Having a strong search and rescue team available when needed is of the highest importance, not only for Icelanders but also for foreign visitors who regularly need its assistance. ICE-SAR is, therefore, a strong pillar in tourism in Iceland, it being invaluable for tourists to be able to count on the selfless work of Landsbjörg. 

Each Icelandair Hotel, eight in total, has a room or a suite dedicated to a search and rescue event that occurred in its region. These rooms contain detailed information, photographs and other items that relate to the event. Thus,  sharing the stories of the individual search and rescue achievements of Icelandic rescue teams throughout the country with our guests who are, moreover, invited to support this important cause.
