Northern Lights Trek

Registration fee: £199 Minimum sponsorship: £0 - £3,590
6th March 2024 Iceland

Explore Iceland’s stunning scenery; from colourful mountains and volcanic landscapes to hot springs. Surrounded by beautiful lake and mountain scenery,  you may even be dazzled by the spectacular Northern Lights!

This challenge begins by trekking to the shores of Lake Þingvallavatn; Iceland’s largest natural lake. You will then hike to the Vörðuskeggi Mountain Pass and have chance to explore the impressive Geothermal Valley – full of hot springs, bubbling mud pools and colourful minerals. 

The trek will be challenging; hiking across snow covered landscapes and conquering mountain passes. However, the chance of witnessing the dancing lights of the Aurora Borealis will keep you motivated! You’ll then celebrate your achievements in the bright lights of Reykjavik!

Take on a challenge in the land of fire and ice and enjoy a memorable long weekend adventure!
