overview

Our 5 day camping challenge through Iceland takes us where volcanoes and mountains tower over us, while hot springs bubble beneath our feet. For three days we hike across lava and snow fields while resting to swim in the Alftavatn volcanic lake and wading in the hot spring of Storihver. Views across Hrafntinnusker accompany us as we hike through the stunning Thorsmork valley that is surrounded by giant glaciers. At the end of our trip we have the chance to explore Reykjavik, famous for its mineral-rich Blue Lagoon, and celebrate our incredible journey with a dinner and party.

This is a fully inclusive challenge. After registering, you will be provided with a challenge pack with all essential information on your challenge. If you are raising money for a charity, Action Challenge will sort out all formalities for you, as well as offer you pre-challenge briefings and training weekends in the UK. On departure day we will board a flight to Keflavik together, ready to take on this trekking adventure.
