Youth Hockey Tournaments
THE ICELANDIC YOUTH INVITATIONAL
The Iceland Invitational is a youth event scheduled over the USA Columbus Day weekend. The tournament is for boys teams U12 through U16 and aimed at the A to AA level. Teams travel from the USA, Canada and sometimes mainland Europe to play against Icelandic competition.
The tournament base is at the Egilsholl ice arena located in Iceland’s capital city of Reykjavik and home of Bjorninn Ice Hockey Club. You have the opportunity to practice, play four tournament games, and end your tour with a social event and awards dinner at the rink. Your hotel is located in central Reykjavik, close to restaurants, shopping and many local attractions.
In addition you can visit some of Iceland’s cultural, scenic and historical treasures. Your trip includes a guided walking tour of Reykjavik, a visit to a thermal bath (an Icelandic tradition) and a number of optional sightseeing excursions such as the unforgettable Golden Circle tour which includes Thingvellir National Park, Gullfoss Waterfall and Geysir geothermal area; glacier walking, horse-riding and the Blue Lagoon.
Teams can just fly in for the tournament or extend their stay on the front end or back end of the trip.
