4-8 July 2018: Icelandic lava trek

Iceland is a land of incredible contrast and beauty. Its wild volcanic landscapes, mountains, glaciers, hot springs, geysers and waterfalls, combined with its rich history, literature and folklore make it a fascinating country to explore.  

This fascinating and highly diverse short trek takes us up to a high pass between two majestic glaciers, taking in the new lava from the 2010 eruption of Eyjafjallajökull. We finish at the beautiful waterfall of Skógarfoss before driving to Reykjavik, where we have some time to explore, or visit the Blue Lagoon thermal spa.

This is a tough and challenging trek through a remote and wild environment – and presents a rare opportunity to witness a landscape which is changing before our eyes.
