Icelandic Lava Trek

Active volcanoes, sheer cliffs, glaciers, thundering waterfalls, steaming lava fields, plunging fjords, boiling mud pools and spouting geysers!

Iceland hosts some of Europe's greatest wilderness areas, which are home to active volcanoes, sheer cliffs, glaciers, thundering waterfalls, steaming lava fields, plunging fjords, boiling mud pools and spouting geysers! This is the stunning terrain that your 'long weekend' expedition will cross.
The challenge is to walk the Landmannalaugar route across the Southern Highlands through one of the most actively volcanic areas in Iceland. Most striking of all is the sheer vastness of space with far reaching visibility, crystal clear northern air and the geological diversity of the multi-coloured volcanic rocks.

Although this is a short European trek, don't be fooled into thinking it is not challenging! The days are long, the terrain is difficult, and you will be expected to get involved in helping to set up camp in the evenings.

Whilst the trek is not technically difficult, you will have to be prepared for some steep climbs and descents on rough ground, as well as walking across snowfields. Such aweinspiring terrain is rarely crossed by adventurers. Before returning home, you will have the chance to visit the Blue Lagoon and take a dip.

By becoming part of our team you will be helping to bring a world free from meningitis and septicaemia a step closer.

Meningitis and septicaemia are devastating diseases which can kill or disable in hours. Although anyone of any age can get the diseases, babies, children and young adults are most at risk.

Your contribution will enable us to fund research into the prevention, detection and treatment of meningitis and septicaemia, provide life-saving awareness information and support people who have lost a loved one, like Gina, or are coping with after effects.
