We are working with Charity Challenge, a specialist tour operator (ATOL 6546) which organises and manages the Icelandic Lava Trek on behalf of the BHF.

What's included in your challenge costs

As well as supporting our lifesaving work, your sponsor money covers your tour costs of £1,321 which includes:

  • Foreign overland transport and luggage transfers
  • Accommodation
  • All meals as per itinerary
  • Entrance fees/permits to any sites visited on trekking days

Other things to budget for

Some expenses are not included in your challenge costs.
  • Gratuities – the local guides and staff all work extremely hard to ensure a successful trip, so we recommend demonstrating your appreciation through a group tip
  • Personal expenses, such as soft and alcoholic drinks, gifts and international calls
  • Travel insurance – suitable for overseas charity challenges, you must have this to be allowed to travel

With you all the way

We’ve been taking people on the challenge of a lifetime for more than 20 years. We use that experience, and the first-hand knowledge of our dedicated support team, to give you the best possible experience of your challenge.

Training support

This is a trek suitable for all abilities, however we would strongly recommend that you train for this challenge as some of the terrain is difficult and there are some steep climbs. We recommend you train for three - six months prior to taking part dependent on your current fitness.

On the challenge, we advise you to go at your own pace – it’s not a race and the idea is to enjoy yourself.

Once you’ve registered, you’ll have access to our detailed training guidelines to help you prepare for the challenge.

Our walking training zone is also full of top tips.
