Icelandic Lava Trek
16 - 20 August 2018
Experience some of Iceland's stunning wilderness as you pass thundering waterfalls, steaming lava fields and plunging fjords.
Iceland is a land of incredible beauty. Its wild volcanic landscapes, glaciers, hot springs, sprouting geysers and thundering waterfalls, combined with its rich history and folklore make it a fascinating country to explore.
This awesome trek takes us across the Landmannalaugar route through one of the most actively volcanic and alien landscapes in Iceland. Although the duration is short, the days are long and the terrain is very challenging with steep climbs and rough descents through jaw-dropping natural wonders.
On completing our challenge we will have the chance to spend the day relaxing our tired legs in the famous Blue Lagoon.
Book your place on this once in a lifetime adventure by visiting the Charity Challenge website and selecting MHA as your chosen charity.
You will fly from London to Keflavik, where you will be transported to the starting point at Landmannalaugar, Iceland.
From the starting line you will trek through some of Europe’s most incredible wilderness to the finishing line at Thorsmork.
