Iceland - Volcano Ice Cap trek
This nine-day trek has incredible views of wild
volcanic landscapes, mountains, glaciers, hot springs and
waterfalls. Combined with Iceland's rich history, literature and
folklore, it's a fascinating country to explore.
Trek from the active Mount Hekla to Landmannalaugar and
then head south through the mountains to the permanent icecaps of
Myrdals and Eyjafjallajokull - 'Glacier of islands'.
The accommodation will be a mixture of camping and two
or three-star hotels. The trek is considered ‘tough’ as during the
main challenge you will need to be prepared for strong winds,
rain and lovely sunny skies all in the same day! The terrain will
vary from dirt track to loose ground and old snow and
there will be steep inclines both up and down.
This challenge is for members and supporters aged over 18.
Treks can last from three to ten
hours each day, involving terrains ranging from wide dirt
tracks to rocky loose ground. You will need to be fit enough
to cover long distances by the time of the challenge.
