The challenge

  • Trek 58kms through one of the planet’s most volcanic regions
  • Weave through vast steaming lava fields
  • Walk against a background of multi-coloured rocks
  • Camp in some of Europe’s most spectacular and unusual terrain
  • Bathe aching limbs in the Blue Lagoon

Home to some of Europe’s most incredible landscapes, the Iceland Lava Trek takes in thundering waterfalls, steaming lava fields, plunging fjords and spouting geysers. Crossing the phenomenal Landmannalaugar, the route is through one of the most actively volcanic and alien landscapes in Iceland, provding awe-inspiring views at every step.

The duration may be short, but the days are long and the terrain is very challenging, with steep climbs and rough descents. In addition, you’ll also be in charge of setting up and breaking down camp, making this a truly tough challenge. But don’t fear - on completing your challenge you have the chance rest aching limbs in the famous Blue Lagoon.

Iceland was one of the most incredible experiences I have enjoyed. A trekking landscape of complete contrasts, from snow fields and glacial rivers to rolling hills and lava plateaus. A fantastic journey with resilient and kind people. Totally worthwhile.

Trekking in Iceland has been a highlight of my life so far.  I loved every minute of this breath-taking experience.

I just want to say what the Iceland challenge did for me as a person, I really want to thank you all for that. I have the medal and certificate on my wall and when I think I cannot do something I look at it and see that I can.
