Icelandic Lava Trek

From wild volcanic landscapes to glaciers and hot springs, Iceland is a world of exquisite contrasts. It's the charity trek of a lifetime.

Scenic Iceland

Iceland is a land of incredible contrast and beauty. It has wild volcanic landscapes, mountains, glaciers, hot springs, geysers and waterfalls and whilst you explore this beautiful country, you will be helping support life-saving research into leukaemia and other blood cancers.

This fascinating and highly diverse short trek takes you up to a high pass between two majestic glaciers, taking in the new lava from the 2010 eruption of Eyjafjallajökull. The trek finish at the beautiful waterfall of Skógarfoss before returning to Reykjavik, where you have some time to explore or visit the famous Blue Lagoon thermal spa.

Duration: 5 days
Registration fee: £275

You then have two fundraising options:

  1. You can choose to pay the tour cost of £1375 with no minimum fundraising target
