Let’s look to the future when this uncertain time will be behind us. Sign up to our incredible Northern Lights Trek and go in search of this wonder in 2021.

3RD – 7TH MARCH 2021

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.

Your 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 the chance to explore the impressive Geothermal Valley; full of hot springs, bubbling mud pools and colourful minerals.

This 5 day, 30km trek will be challenging, but truly spectacular; 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!


Choose to trek for Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation and raise a minimum of £3,124 for life-changing lung cancer research and support.
