Iceland Trek 2017
TREK FOR THE COLLEGE: ICELAND TREK (30 AUG - 3 SEPT 2017)
Trek past Icelandic volcanoes, mountains and hot springs to support our global health work.
This five-day camping challenge will take you past volcanoes, mountains and hot springs. For three days you will hike across lava and snow fields, swim in the Alftavatn volcanic lake and wade in the hot springs of Storihver. As you hike through the stunning Thorsmork valley you will be surrounded by views across Hrafntinnusker and giant glaciers. At the end of your trip you will have the chance to explore Reykjavik, famous for its mineral-rich Blue Lagoon and celebrate your incredible journey with a dinner and party.
This event will be delivered by Action Challenge, who specialise in the creation of challenging, travel-based activities across the world.
