The challenge

  • Trek to the Langjökull glacier
  • Traverse the second largest glacier in Iceland
  • Admire Iceland’s most incredible landscapes
  • Spend nights camping on the ice
  • Relax in geothermal springs

This is a challenge to get you out of your comfort zone and onto Iceland’s most extreme glacial landscapes. Spend five days ski-trekking across Langjökull glacier ice cap, enjoying incredible scenery along the way. 

Starting at Husafell in the highlands of Iceland, you will ski-trek towards Baldjökull, the most northern point of the glacier, which rises 1450m above sea level.  As well as the spectacular glacier scenery, you will be rewarded with views of Þursaborg mountain range. 

Push through the physical and environmental obstacles before spending your nights camping on the ice under starry northern skies.

This is an experience you’ll never forget.
